GREEN BAY – The Green Bay Packers play four of their next five games on the road, beginning this week with the mother of all road games, against the New York Giants in London.

The average of lowest prices at 10 secondary market sites for that game is actually higher than the last two weeks, which is unusual.

Prices normally fall as game time nears and ticket sellers get motivated, but likely reflect the continued interest in the game by United Kingdom and European fans.

The price on Monday was $463, compared with $418 last week and $449 two weeks ago.

Also remaining pricey is the national Sunday night game in Buffalo on Oct. 30. Like the 3-1 Packers, the Bills have legitimate Super Bowl aspirations, and like the Packers they struggled to win their last two games. The game also offers the matchup of reigning NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers and the Bills' star quarterback Josh Allen. 

The average lowest price was $407 Monday, compared with $403 last week and $260 in August.

The Packers return from London next week to play the third New York team on the schedule, the Jets at Lambeau Field. The Jets are 2-2 and pulled out a spirited victory against the Steelers on Sunday.

Because it will be the first Green package home game in a month, is the only noon game at Lambeau Field this year and is a normally good time for watching games outdoors in Green Bay, the price is a healthy $212. That compares with $229 last week and $214 two weeks ago.

Meanwhile, it is time to stop pointing out the ineptitude of the Detroit Lions. The Lions may be the most dangerous 1-3 team in the league. Their three losses this year are by a total of 10 points. Two of those three losses, including to Seattle on Sunday, were at Ford Field, but based on ticket prices, Lions fans for the first time in years have taken an interest.

The average get-in price for the Nov. 6 game is $140, the first time in years games in Detroit sold for more than $100. That's double what it was in August.

The Washington Commanders have become the Detroit of years past on the secondary market, and maybe on the field, too. The average get-in price for the Oct. 23 game in Washington is $89. Washington suffered its third consecutive loss Sunday against the Cowboys and already its season seems to be spinning out of control.

Note that ticket marketplaces can add fees on top of listed prices, so actual costs might be higher. 

Several websites offer standing room only tickets for Packers home games. The Packers have designated the SRO tickets as being not available for resale, so buyers proceed at their own risk. If the ticket does not scan as valid, fans won't be admitted to the stadium, and their recourse for a refund is to contact the seller of the ticket.
