NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Who says that it costs an arm and a leg to attend an NFL game?
Well, it usually does, but that’s not the case for this weekend’s game at MetLife Stadium.
Gang Green, coming off an embarrassing defeat to the Patriots on Thanksgiving night, is hosting the lowly Cardinals on Sunday in their second-to-last home game of the season, barring an improbable run to the playoffs.
How much will it cost you, the fan, to attend this game?
As of Wednesday morning, tickets were selling for as low as $18 on StubHub, and 7,770 tickets were still available.
Gang Green sits at 4-7, tied for last place with the Buffalo Bills in the AFC East. In their 49-19 loss to the division-rival Patriots last week, New York allowed 35 points in the second quarter — including a span in which New England scored three touchdowns in 52 seconds.
Head coach Rex Ryan called the game a “nightmare” in his postgame press conference.
“I think everyone was shaking their heads, thinking, ‘How did that happen?'” cornerback Antonio Cromartie told the Associated Press.
“I don’t even know what I believe right now the way we’ve been playing,” Cromartie told The Star-Ledger. “Five games left, anything can happen. My biggest thing right now is the one important game. Can’t worry about the playoffs right now. My main focus is worrying about what’s going on with Arizona.”
Cromartie might be focused on Arizona, but Jets fans are more focused on incompetence. After Ryan said earlier in the season that this year’s team might be his best ever, the Jets’ offense has been stagnant all season, and Mark Sanchez has regressed after leading the team to consecutive AFC title games in his first two seasons.
As many expected, his subpar performance has led to dissension amongst fans, many of whom want to see Tim Tebow take over as starting quarterback.
The Jets’ final home game of the season will be on Dec. 23 against the Chargers.
Would you attend this game on Sunday for $18, or would the Jets have to pay you to head out to MetLife Stadium? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below…
