Week 13 Ticket Preview: Buccaneers @ Panthers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have won three games in a row after starting the season 0-8. Their week 13 opponent, the Carolina Panthers, have won seven games in a row after starting the season 1-3. This game has become slightly more intriguing than it looked just a few weeks ago. The Panthers are currently positioned to be the No. 5 seed as the first Wild Card team in the playoffs, but have a chance to take the lead in the NFC South over the New Orleans Saints before the end of the season.

Carolina Panthers tickets for this week 13 game have a current average price of $97.22 on the secondary market, which represents a 26% drop over the past week. It’s the cheapest remaining home game for Carolina, which includes games against two playoff contenders, the New York Jets and the divisional foe Saints. Even though this is still a divisional game, the ticket price is 37% below the average Panthers home game. While this game is down for the Panthers, it’s still a 7.4% increase on Tampa Bay Buccaneers tickets on the road this season.

The Panthers are close to make the playoffs and they still have a chance to steal the division lead away from New Orleans. A win against Tampa Bay would make the Panthers 9-3 with the Saints having to play the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night. If the Saints were to lose, both the Saints and Panthers would have an identical record heading into their Week 14 game against each other.

Carolina can’t overlook the Buccaneers this week, who have looked good the past few weeks with Mike Glennon at quarterback. The Panthers will hope they can make the Bucs look like the team that started the season as opposed to the one that has won three games in a row.
