Reid started things off right by drafting offensive tackle Eric Fisher to bolster the run game, and even held onto tackle Brandon Albert to help solidify the rest of the offensive line. In addition, he held onto star wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, and replaced the erratic Matt Cassel with Alex Smith at quarterback.
A down in the dumps loser a year ago, the Chiefs now walk into 2013 with a quarterback who is used to winning, a coach who has been winning for years, and they still have stud offensive weapons such as Bowe and running back Jamaal Charles.
If the Chiefs can surprise the “experts” and be competitive in 2013, KC fans might be getting the best overall deal in the league at just $115 per home game ticket.
With that, let’s gear up for the new NFL season by breaking down Kansas City Chiefs tickets for their six division gamest:
- (10/13) vs. Oakland Raiders | Avg: $111 | Get-in: $13
Prices for tickets to their home duel with the Raiders are just $111. KC fans won’t balk at a good price, though, as this one should end with a ‘W’ and comes in at 3% below the home game season average.
- (11/24) vs. San Diego Chargers | Avg: $97 | Get-in: $13
It makes sense for the home game against the Raiders to be on the cheaper side, but fans are really getting a treat when the Chargers come into town. This one is somehow under $100 on average, and comes in 16% under the season average.
- (12/1) vs. Denver Broncos | Avg: $131 | Get-in: $26
The Chiefs have another good division rivalry game here to kickoff December, and it’s a fantastic draw in Peyton Manning and the Broncos. Even with this one being a likely loss and 14% above KC’s home game season average, it’s still a terrific deal.
- (11/17) @ Denver Broncos | Avg: $280 | Get-in: $83
Chiefs fans aren’t so lucky when it comes to price the first time KC faces the Broncos, and in all honesty when it comes to hopes of stealing a win, either. They’ll be major underdogs on the road in Denver in mid-November, while the price tag could approach $300 on average.
- (12/15) @ Oakland Raiders | Avg: $98 | Get-in: $19
KC travels to Oakland for a big rivalry game, yet it’s their second cheapest game inside the division, and under $100 on average. Oakland isn’t the toughest opponent, but records and talent goes out the window when you play division rivalries with so much history – and it gets even more up in the air when you visit the Black Hole.
- (12/29) @ San Diego Chargers | Avg: $136 | Get-in: $36
Kansas City hopes to end their 2013 season on a high note, although if it’s going to end well they’ll have to pull an upset in San Diego. The Chargers appear to be the better team on paper, but even if they get hit with a loss, at least Chiefs fans can witness a solid game at under $140 on average.
