The season did not start out the way the New York Giants had hoped. Few aspects of the team performed well in the seasoning opening 35-14 loss to the Detroit Lions on Monday night. The poor showing has carried over to the secondary market and New York Giants tickets for the home opener against the Arizona Cardinals are now the cheapest of the season.READ MORE: COVID Vaccine In New York: Yankee Stadium Vaccination Site Now Open 24 Hours
According to TiqIQ, the average price of the game is currently $246.21. That price is 24% below the season average at home this season and is one of three games with an average price below $300. The get-in price of $57 is the cheapest low price of the season by $20. However, even the cheapest game on the Giants schedule is more expensive than last week’s home opener for the New York Jets. Jets vs
Oakland Raiders tickets for Week 1 had an average price of $207.96, which currently stands as the fourth most expensive average price for the Jets at MetLife Stadium this season. The season average for Jets tickets is currently $197.31, which is 20% below the least expensive Giants game. The most expensive Jets game of the season against the Denver Broncos is only 1% above the average price of the Giants’ least expensive game.
The Giants will play two games in a row at home. The following home game against the Houston Texans also has an average price below $300. The current average for the Week 3 game is $267.26, 18% below the season average. The other game on the Giants schedule to have a sub-$200 average is a Monday Night Football game against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 9. The Colts game comes in a dangerous stretch for the Giants. They play against Indianapolis on the Monday night, fly out to Seattle to play the Seahawks before coming back home to play the San Francisco 49ers.
That game against San Francisco is currently the most expensive home game of the season with an average price of $383.14. It’s possible the price for that game also drops if the Giants struggle in the previous two games against tough competition. Though Giants fans have kept secondary market prices relatively high even through a struggling season last year. After the disappointing 7-9 finish, Giants tickets were the sixth most expensive NFL tickets in the league on the secondary market.READ MORE: Gov.

A true test could come the following week when the Dallas Cowboys come to MetLife Stadium. That game is currently the second most expensive of the season with an average price of $380.39, but Week 1 was not kind to either team. It’s possible both teams could be at the bottom of the division by that point, instead of fighting for the NFC East lead in years past.
Week 1 could be a best test for the still in progress offense taking on an Arizona defense that handled an explosive San Diego Chargers offense on Monday night. Both Giants fans hopes and secondary market ticket prices will benefit from a win in the home opener. For now, it will be the least expensive game of the season at MetLife Stadium.
