Dallas Cowboys Continue Hot Sales Streak in NFL Week 1

The Dallas Cowboys may have lost all of their preseason bouts, but coming into Week 1 of the NFL regular season, they can’t stop winning. Ticket Club data shows the Cowboys have been the hottest-selling team in Week 1 for six of the last seven years, and are once again atop the list in 2018.

Despite being on the road against Carolina in their season opener, Dallas fans continue to drum up strong sales figures, sending their Week 1 match-up to the top of the list. Tickets for the Sunday afternoon game are in high demand at an average price of nearly $325 apiece, the highest Week 1 average price for the Cowboys since their 2012 opener against the Giants, at just under $300.

It isn’t just the Cowboys that are perennial favorites at the season’s kick-off. Green Bay and New England were also strong sellers year-over-year, even joining Dallas as the top three Week 1 best sellers in 2014, 2015 and once more last year. The Packers, fresh off giving Aaron Rodgers the NFL’s largest extension deal ever, fall just below Dallas in overall sales, while the Patriots’ home clash against Houston picked up the No. 5 sales ranking. The reigning Super Bowl champs Philadelphia Eagles earned the No. 4 spot ahead of their Thursday opener against Atlanta. See how all the teams fare below.

16 Indianapolis Colts vs. Cincinnati Bengals Indianapolis, IN Sunday – 1:00

Just as the Dallas Cowboys are continuously one of the best-selling teams in the league, the Cincinnati Bengals are often placed on the lower end of the spectrum. The Bengals are hoping to snap a two-year losing streak in the overall standings, but their losing streak in Week 1 sales dates back much longer, having been among the five worst-selling season openers in 2012, 2014, 2015, 2017 and now 2018.

NFL fans hoping to score a last-minute seat into the stadium may fare better in certain games which see rather low average ticket prices thus far. Miami and Arizona’s Week 1 clashes are the only ones to see average ticket prices under the $100 benchmark, while New England flexes its muscles as one of the most expensive markets to see in a game in. Check out which games are costing fans the most in the table below, with ticket prices ranked from most expensive to most affordable.
