Detroit Lions, Dallas Cowboys Fans Prepare for Thanksgiving Day Football on TicketNetwork.com
SOUTH WINDSOR, CT, Nov 16, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, meaning a day full of food,
family and football. For NFL fans in Detroit and Dallas, it means
another Thanksgiving tradition: heading to the stadium.
For more than 40 years, the Detroit Lions have hosted the early game
on Thanksgiving. This year, they face the Houston Texans, with fans
paying an average $109* for game tickets listed on TicketNetwork.com.
That average is 26% higher than for all other Lions home games this
season, but the team's lackluster play has actually driven prices
paid down 34% from the $167 average for last year's Thanksgiving game
against the Green Bay Packers.
The Dallas Cowboys also have played Thanksgiving Day for more than
four decades and will take on the Washington Redskins this season. So
far, the average price paid is $212 for tickets listed on
TicketNetwork.com, more than 30% higher than last year against the
Miami Dolphins. The Redskins are arguably the Cowboys' biggest rival,
helping increase demand (and average prices) for the 2012 game.
A more recent addition to the NFL's Thanksgiving Day schedule is a
third primetime game. This year's game features the New York Jets and
New England Patriots, with an average price paid of $105.
