The Seattle Seahawks took the league by storm in 2013, thanks to the always competitive Pete Carroll and an unlikely rookie sensation in quarterback Russell Wilson.
Backed by an elite rushing attack lead by Marshawn Lynch, the Seahawks worked with their nasty defense to go 11-5 and make it to the second round of last year’s playoffs. With all of the same pieces intact, plus sound additions like cornerback Antoine Winfield and defensive end Michael Bennett, Seattle’s defense should be even scarier in 2013.
The team also improved on offense, adding the explosive Percy Harvin via trade, while also drafting former Texas A&M running back, Christine Michael. While Harvin is out (hip) until late November, his presence could still be felt late in the year as the Seahawks make another playoff push.
All we know for sure is this is still a very deep and balanced team on both sides of the ball and they’re fully expected to make another deep run in 2013 and fans in Seattle are excited. Currently, the average price of Seattle Seahawks tickets is $253. With that said, let’s take a look at how much it will cost for their NFC West games, at home and on the road.
- (9/15) vs. San Francisco 49ers | Avg: $473 | Get-in: $203
Clearly this is an expensive game, but few 49ers/Seahawks games will be more hyped than this one. It’s their first battle of the year and it’s in Seattle. It’s a toss-up, but it goes for 87% more than the home average for the Seahawks.
- (12/22) vs. Arizona Cardinals | Avg: $212 | Get-in: $75
This week 16 meeting with Arizona is Seattle’s cheapest home division game, which is ironic because it’s the one they’re most likely to win. Still, it’s actually a solid deal at 16% below their home game average for the season.
- (12/29) vs. St. Louis Rams | Avg: $222 | Get-in: $75
Seattle’s home/season finale against a competent division rival. Booyah. A lot could be on the line in this one, yet it’s still 12% under the Hawks’ home game average. It should be a tough battle, but the Seahawks are the better team and should prevail to enter the playoffs on a high note.
- (10/17) @ Arizona Cardinals | Avg: $119 | Get-in: $31
Seahawks fans get a discount in the first meeting with the Cardinals, but they’ll have to take it to the road to get it. This one should be a win on paper, yet it’s almost $100 cheaper than the battle in Seattle.
- (10/28) @ St. Louis Rams | Avg: $143 | Get-in: $29
Seahawks and Rams get another bargain here, as St. Louis is good enough to give the Seahawks a run for their money, yet this one is cheaper than their other showdown by about $80 on average.
- (12/8) @ San Francisco 49ers | Avg: $243 | Get-in: $79
This December meeting understandably isn’t going to be quite as intense as the first meeting in September, but it actually is the more important game. Even so, it’s over $200 cheaper than the first game these two wage war in.
