The Indianapolis Colts went from being the worst team in the league a year ago to being one that was in the playoffs. In fact, drafting quarterback Andrew Luck made them an 11-5 team that actually almost took over the division.
Some say the Colts over-achieved a bit in 2012, and some say the torch has officially been passed from Peyton Manning to Luck. All we know for sure is that the Colts have their true franchise quarterback under center, and that he has enough talent around him on offense to get even better in 2013.
If Luck can indeed take his own game and the Colts to the next level in 2013, Indy fans are easily getting a bargain on home games, at just $180 on average. That price isn’t exactly cheap, but considering how much potential the Colts offer, it’s definitely a deal. With that price in mind, TiqIQ.com gears up for the 2013 NFL season by taking a look at Indianapolis Colts tickets for all six of their AFC South division games:
- (12/1) vs. Tennessee Titans | Avg: $135 | Get-in: $36
The erratic Jake Locker should be no match for the much more distinguished Luck, although both sides could combine for an epic shootout. No matter, the Colts should emerge with the home win, and give fans a nice value at 25% below the regular home game price.
- (12/15) vs. Houston Texans | Avg: $169 | Get-in: $47
The Texans and Colts are quickly going to turn into a heated division rivalry, as Houston is arguably one of the elite teams in the league, while Indy is rising and will be chasing the AFC South division crown. This is a very heated battle without a lot riding on it in mid-December, yet Colts fans are still getting a solid deal with the average price 6% under the home game season average.
- (12/29) vs. Jacksonville Jaguars | Avg: $137 | Get-in: $36
The only thing stifling this game is the opponent, as the Jaguars shouldn’t put up much of a fight. This is still a season finale, though, and a lot could be riding on it as the Colts try to push into the playoffs once again. At a whopping 24% under their home average, fans are getting a crazy discount for it being the final regular season game of the year.
- (9/29) @ Jacksonville Jaguars | Avg: $106 | Get-in: $34
The Jaguars aren’t the toughest opponent, but division games are often toss-ups, especially when it’s on the road. I still think Indy gets the win here as they’re just too potent offensively for the Jags to hang in. Even if the Jaguars somehow snag the upset, this one would be easy to get over, as the price is very solid at just $106 on average.
- (11/3) @ Houston Texans | Avg: $266 | Get-in: $77
A trip to Houston will prove to be a pricey one. The Texans’ home game price is $251 on average, so getting their top division threat in town begs for the price to jack up a bit. Colts fans aren’t getting the deal they are at home and they could easily lose this one, but it’s still going to be a battle worth checking out.
- (11/14) @ Tennessee Titans | Avg: $132 | Get-in: $22
Indy’s final division road contest comes before even the middle of November, where they’ll travel to Tennessee to likely try to put the finishing touches on a season sweep. As stated before, the Titans
have the offense to possibly stay in this one or even steal it, but it’s not likely. More importantly, it’s $3 cheaper than the one in Indianpolis, so you’re getting great value in either matchup.
