The Washington Redskins went from the darlings of the NFC East to the bottom of the division in the span of one year. Rushing Robert Griffin III back from a torn ACL and boasting a shaky defense certainly didn’t help.
While Washington’s slide left a poor taste in the mouths of fans, RG3’s awesome rookie year in 2012 still offers hope for a turn around. In fact, the ‘Skins have made major changes on both sides of the ball that should contribute to a much more competitive team in 2014.
Whether the Redskins will actually get back to winning more than they lose is still a bit of a toss up, but at least Redskins fans won’t have to pay much to see their team in person.
With hope in the air and Washington Redskins tickets fairly priced, let’s take a look at how they might start off 2014 based off of their September schedule with ticket data provided from SuperStarTickets.com:
Week 1 (Sep. 7th) @ Houston Texans | Average Price: $238 | Get-in: $76
RG3 will try to show the world last year was a fluke as he and his Washington teammates travel to Houston to take on the Texans in week one. That may be easier said than done, but these teams actually match up quite well. The Redskins have their work cut out for them on the road, but with the average Ryan Fitzpatrick under center for Houston, Washington might hold the edge.
Week 2 (Sep. 14th) VS. Jacksonville Jaguars | Average Price: $144 | Get-in: $26
Talk about a deal. Not only are Redskins tickets super cheap for Washington’s home opener, but this week two matchup comes against a beatable Jaguars team, as well. Washington will have to figure out Jacksonville’s improving defense, but otherwise looks like the favorite here. Fans can pay as low as $26 just to get into this one, which could see the ‘Skins marching on at 2-0. According to data from ParkWhiz, you can find DC parking available for as low as $30 for the game so it would cost only $56 for a ticket and a parking spot to the home opener.
Week 3 (Sep. 21st) @ Philadelphia Eagles | Average Price: $252 | Get-in: $87
Week three brings Washington’s most intense battle of September, as two high octane offenses clash in their first NFC East battle of the year. Philly stole the division crown in 2013 and will welcome the Redskins into “the city of brotherly love” with their eyes on a win. RG3 has had some strong performances against a still inconsistent Philly defense, so fans could be in for a bit of a fast-paced shootout. Fans looking to drive up to the game from DC will surely find Philly parking to be significantly less than the $87 cost it will take for a ticket to the game.
Week 4 (Sep. 25th) VS. New York Giants | Average Price: $168 | Get-in: $35
The final game in September is Washington’s second straight divisional contest, as they welcome Eli Manning and the G-Men to their home turf. The Giants don’t look tough on paper, but they always seem to give their NFC East rivals a good game. Washington looks to be the favorite at home, though, while fans get another awesome value with this one coming in at under $170 on average.
