The Dallas Cowboys have rebounded beautifully after an awful week one, as they’ve won three straight games with a blowout win over the Saints as the cherry on top in week four. Quarterback Tony Romo and Running back DeMarco Murray played exceptionally well, providing the Cowboys an early multiple touchdown lead that they would never yield.
Two of the ‘Boys three wins are against the Titans and Rams, though, leaving the NFL experts not quite convinced they’re for real. Romo and company will have a much sterner test in the month of October with a home game against their in-state rival, followed by a trip to face the defending Super Bowl champions, and then two home games against divisional rivals to close out the month.
To gear up for their October run, let’s take a look at their next few games, while also breaking down the value of Cowboys tickets:
Week 5 VS. Houston Texans (10/5/14) | Average Ticket Price: $375.49 | Get-in Ticket Price: $156 | Cowboys Stadium parking: $6.60
The battle for Texas? Houston comes into town in week five with an identical 3-1 mark to the Cowboys, and only one of these teams can escape with a fourth win. Dallas has been a tad underrated on the defensive side of the ball, so they may have the upper hand if they can make Ryan Fitzpatrick force the issue.
This is the most expensive game of the month at AT&T Stadium with an average ticket price just north of $375 and a get-in price of $156; however, there are still deals to be had. According to SuiteHop, you can find Dallas Cowboys luxury suite tickets available for as low as $525, the cheapest rate for any game remaining on the Cowboys schedule.
Week 6 @ Seattle Seahawks (10/12/14) | Average Ticket Price: $422.44 | Get-in Ticket Price: $160
The ‘Boys true test of October is the defending champs, and of course it has to come on the road. This is a pretty decent value when you look at Seahawks tickets during 2014. While a seemingly balanced Dallas team just might have what it takes to give Russell Wilson and company a good fight here in week six, it will certainly be an uphill battle and expect Dallas to be close to a touchdown underdog.
Dallas stays at home here for the second of three October home contests, as they welcome the G-Men to town for a bitter NFC East showdown. These games always seem to be very intense between these two teams and fans can probably expect much of the same on October 19th. The good news is Eli Manning tends to struggle in Jerry World, so Cowboys fans should be looking at a win.
Week 8 VS. Washington Redskins (10/27/14) | Average Ticket Price: $234.39 | Get-in Ticket Price: $58 | Cowboys Stadium parking: $6.60
It typically costs a chunk of change to see the Cowboys play live, but fans actually get a bit of a deal here with Cowboys tickets under $60 to get in and at an October low, below $240 on average. It’s the cheapest game in October and could have major implications on the Cowboys’ hopes for gaining a playoff spot in 2014.
Most likely, Kirk Cousins will still be under center at this point, though there is the possibility of the return of Robert Griffin III. That would potentially spice this one up considerably and could increase ticket prices.
