Preview: Panthers @ Saints Tickets

The New Orleans Saints will be hosting the Carolina Panthers for what will, at least temporarily, give a team the advantage to win the NFC South and a first round bye in the playoffs. The division winner is likely to grab the No. 2 seed in the NFC, behind Seattle, with the luxury of getting to sit out on Wild Card Weekend. While the game has an increased meaning on the field and in the standings, New Orleans fans seem to have soured on the game.

The average ticket price for this game is $269 with a get-in price of $72. This game is well below the average price of Seahawks-49ers, even though the Saints and Panthers are probably more evenly matched. The price is down 20% over the past week and is even 3% below the season average for New Orleans Saints tickets at home. It is, however, still 149% above the average price of Carolina Panthers tickets on the road this year.

The drop in price could be a result of the blowout the Saints were on the wrong side of on Monday night in Seattle. With that loss, the Saints likely fell out of the running of the No. 1 seed in the NFC and gave the Panthers a legitimate shot at winning the NFC South. Both teams enter this game at 9-3 and two games above the leaders of the NFC North and NFC East in the standings. The Panthers come into this game with an eight game winning streak and one of the best defenses in the league. After what happened to the Saints against the best defense in the league in Seattle, maybe New Orleans fans are worried about a similar situation.

For Saints fans not worried and eager for what could be one of the best games of the season, getting in on this game at a below average home price should be a steal.
