The New York Jets still have a shot at the playoffs, at least mathematically. Not much about the Jets’ play in the past few weeks has given a lot for fans to look forward to for the rest of the season. As a result, New York Jets tickets have dropped dramatically in price. The upcoming game against the Oakland Raiders has seen a price drop of 45% over the past week on the secondary market.
The average price for the Raiders-Jets game this weekend is just $100.75 with a get-in price of only $20. That’s 52% below the average price for Jets home games this season and significantly lower than the game against the New Orleans Saints just five weeks ago. It’s also 58% below the average price for Oakland Raiders tickets on the road this year.
At the point after the victory in the Saints game, the Jets were 5-4 with the lead position to grab the No. 6 seed in the AFC. The Jets then went on a bye and have lost three straight games to drop below .500 to 5-7 and need help to reach the playoffs. After scoring two touchdowns in the loss to Buffalo during Week 11, the offense has scored just two field goals in the past two games and gained just 22 combined first downs. The Jets have started to look like the team many thought they would be at the beginning of the season, rather than the playoff contender they could have been.
Meanwhile, the Raiders have been playing better on offense since Matt McGloin took over as the starting quarterback, though there’s only one win to show for it. At 4-8, Oakland will be looking to evaluate the roster for next season.
It might not be the best played game of the year, but for fans still looking to get into a Jets game, the price won’t come much cheaper than this.
