The Tennessee Titans enter 2013 with a lot of hope and optimism. They still have talented running back Chris Johnson leading the way, while he is expected to see bigger running lanes with the offensive line drastically improved via the draft and free agency.
Elsewhere on offense, third-year quarterback Jake Locker is arguably entering a make-or-break season, while the Titans plan to integrate some read-option plays to take pressure off of him and also take advantage of his athleticism. To ensure Locker is at his best, the Titans added another wide receiver in rookie Justin Hunter, and now have a full arsenal to go to war with.
With that said, this is still a young team and Locker is no lock to progress enough to push the Titans into the playoffs. Because of this, Titans fans are in for a season-long treat, as their home games price out at just $118 on average.
Tennessee has the taken to surprise in the AFC South, but fans won’t have to over-pay while they shoot for the moon.
- (11/10) vs. Jacksonville Jaguars | Avg: $93 | Get-in: $13
It’s the Jaguars. At home. For under $100. Every Titans fan will want in on this one, as the price is crazy cheap (are you kidding me with the $13 get-in tag?), and it’s a likely win. On top of it all, this one comes in at 21% below the average home game for the Titans, which is just gravy.
- (11/14) vs. Indianapolis Colts | Avg: $132 | Get-in: $22
It gets a little harder four days later, but this one is still at home and the Colts aren’t exactly unbeatable. I’m not sure Locker wins in a showdown vs. the clearly more polished Andrew Luck, but it could still be a quality battle. Either way, Titans fans get a show for less than just 12% more than they pay on average at home.
- (12/29) vs. Houston Texans | Avg: $124 | Get-in: $23
The season finale comes against the likely playoff-bound Texans, and it couldn’t get much more real than that. If the Titans want in on the playoffs, they’ll probably need to win this game, while if they’re not in position they could also potentially play spoiler. Considering this game is only 5% more expensive than the average Titans home game in 2013, fans are getting a heck of a deal.
- (9/15) @ Houston Texans | Avg: $217 | Get-in: $72
Tennessee travels to Houston and Titans fans will have to accept the price, as the ticket naturally sees a spike when you get into Houston. I don’t see the Titans playing this one all that close in Houston’s backyard, so hopefully they can pull an upset in their second meeting later in the year.
- (12/1) @ Indianapolis Colts | Avg: $135 | Get-in: $36
Anytime you face the Colts it could be a shootout, and while the Titans are far less likely to pull one away on the road, it’s still at a nice price and we could be in for a bit of a barn burner.
- (12/22) @ Jacksonville Jaguars | Avg: $113 | Get-in: $29
This meeting with the Jaguars could prove to be a tad more difficult on the road and it does come a little more expensive. However, it’s still a very reasonable price and the Titans still have a great chance at pulling off a season sweep here.
