Wanna See Tom Brady? Here Are the 5 Cheapest Pats Games this Season
Despite the fact that he turned 41 earlier this week, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has shown no signs of slowing down. The former sixth-round draft pick was named league MVP last year after leading the league in passing yards, and he will try to replicate last season’s success as he pushes forward in his attempt to win his sixth Super Bowl.
Even though Brady has publicly stated that he wants to play until his mid-forties, there’s only a small amount of time left to see one of the game’s all-time greats in person before he calls it a career. Whether you’re a Patriots diehard who’s itching to see the team play live or simply want to see one of the league’s best at work, we’ve compiled a list of the five cheapest games on the New England Patriots schedule for this season.
New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills – Monday, October 29 – Orchard Park, NY
As a lifelong Patriots fan myself, I’ve actually been to three Patriots away games over the last handful of years–all of them being in Buffalo. The tickets for these games are usually moderately priced, and although Buffalo fans can be a bit chippy, there’s plenty of great food options and things to see in Western New York for traveling fans. As an added bonus, the Patriots have not lost a game in Buffalo since 2011, so if you’re looking to see a New England win this might be one of your best shots.
New England Patriots at New York Jets – Sunday, November 25 – East Rutherford, NJ
Another popular road destination for Patriots fans is New York/New Jersey. Driving from New England to the NY/NJ area only takes a few hours and given the incredible amount of amazing ticket deals on this particular game on SeatGeek, this game should be worth making the drive for.
New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins – Sunday, December 9 – Miami Gardens, FL
Late-season divisional games in the AFC East usually mean brutally cold temperatures and frozen fields. However, the Patriots have an away game in Miami in early December this year. The weather in Florida in December averages a high of 76 degrees and a low of 69 degrees which is perfect for a weekend getaway to see Tom Brady and co.
Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots – Sunday, December 23 – Foxboro, MA
As far as home games go, the cheapest games are usually the divisional matchups. This year’s cheapest home game takes place on December 23 against the Buffalo Bills. If you’re planning on attending either of the two December home games, be sure to wear plenty of layers and bundle up as temperatures average between 40 and 23 degrees.
New York Jets at New England Patriots – Sunday, December 30 – Foxboro, MA
Another economical option for New England-based fans is the Patriots Week 17 tilt against the New York Jets. The Patriots have been fantastic against the Jets since 2011, having won 12 out of the last 14 contests, which includes each of their last seven home games in the series.
Kansas City Chiefs at New England Patriots – Thursday, October 14 – Foxboro, MA
If you’re looking to catch a Patriots home game this season but are wary about braving the notoriously cold winter weather in New England, there’s another great option for you to choose. The Patriots Thursday Night game against the Chiefs in mid-October is a little bit more expensive than the late December divisional contests but it should be a tightly-contested matchup in mild temps.
