The Baltimore Ravens and Dallas Cowboys will wage war in a week six contest that happens to be the most expensive home/road game for both teams. While Baltimore Ravens tickets are always highly sought after in the Beltway area–4th in the NFL in home average ticket price–this weekend’s game is on a whole other level as prices currently sit at $425 per seat, 38% higher than their home average. The jacked up price comes with good reason, too, as Baltimore always puts on a good show at home.
On the positive side for ticket buyers, prices have gone down 7% over the last 10 days from when prices peaked at $455 on October 1st. You can get in M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday for as low as $194
While the Ravens boast an impressive 4-1 record and will strive to continue their stranglehold on the AFC North, the Cowboys are a completely different story. When the season began Tony Romo and co. looked like they had it all figured out. They were riding high after beating the defending champion and bitter division rival New York Giants, only to get crushed by the Seattle Seahawks the next week. Now they sit at a very average 2-2 and face a must-win game on the road to get their fans back on the bandwagon, and to show the rest of the league they’re for real this time.
They’ll certainly have their work cut out for them to put up points against the Ravens, even without Terrell Suggs helping out a slightly deflated pass-rush. But the truth is, it may not matter if Suggs isn’t there, as Baltimore might only need to put on mediocre pressure, as Dallas hasn’t protected Romo well at all in 2012 (eight sacks allowed, as well as four fumbles).
However, the big storyline sticks with the big-ticket guy, and that has to be Tony Romo. It’ll be interesting to see how the Cowboys’ star receivers and Ray Rice figure into the equation, but it all circles back to Romo and whether or not he can put his team on his shoulders and lead them to victory.
After a dreadful five-interception game last week, all eyes will be on Romo. Can he rise up against a tough opponent on the road and keep his critics at bay, or will the Ravens swallow him up and march into week seven with a 5-1 record?
