GREEN BAY – The good news is prices for the Green Bay Packers game in London fell significantly during the last week. The bad news? They still are well more expensive than any other game and available tickets are almost all single seats.

While prices for this week's game in Tampa are at their lowest of the year, which is to be expected as the game draws near, the next two home games, against the New England Patriots and New York Jets, are more expensive than a week ago.

The average of lowest-priced tickets for the London game on Oct. 9 against the New York Giants was $449 Monday, compared to $531 one week ago. Most of the tickets offered, however, are for single seats. 

Ticket price averages are determined by checking 10 online secondary marketplaces. 

The Packers have a couple of other opponents to deal with before playing their first International Series game, beginning with the Buccaneers on Sunday. The average lowest price for that game slipped from $289 to $239. The Packers and the Buccaneers both won on Sunday, setting up the fifth head-to-head meeting of future hall of fame quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady.

After beating the Bears on Sunday, Rodgers has a 25-5 lifetime record against Chicago, but he's only won one of four games against Brady-led teams, and the Packers don't fare especially well playing in Florida.

The Packers return to Lambeau on Oct. 2 to play the New England Patriots. The average get-in price was $277 on Monday, up from $268 the previous week. The game has a lot going for it to keep the price at that level. It is a Gold package game, which means most of its season ticket holders are from southern Wisconsin. Their only other game this year is on a Thursday night, so they are going to be reluctant to part with the New England tickets. Also, it's a Sunday afternoon in October, usually a good time to watch football at Lambeau Field. 

The Packers return from London to play the New York Jets at Lambeau Field on Oct. 16 — the only noon game at Lambeau this season. The average get-in price of $214 is $14 more than last week. 

Packers coach Matt LaFleur's brother is the offensive coordinator for the Jets and New York head coach Robert Saleh is a close friend. While neither of those drive ticket prices, it will add interest to the game.

Like in London, a lot of the cheapest tickets for the Jets game are single seats.

The Packers will travel to Landover, Maryland, on Oct. 23 to play Washington. Tickets prices, at $96, are $10 high than in August, but anything less than $100 a ticket indicates a decided paucity of interest among fans. This will be the Packers' sixth game in seven years against Washington, which is a lot for teams not in the same division. It is also not exactly the road game a lot of Packers fans look forward to, especially when a much more interesting game at Buffalo comes the following week.
