In a continuation of one of the biggest rivalries in football, the Chicago Bears will head into Lambeau Field on Monday night to play the Green Bay Packers. Tickets for this game are at a surprisingly low, for Bears-Packers standards, $214 average on the secondary market, making it just the fourth highest priced game of Week 9. That average is down 31% over the past week and 15% below the average price for Green Bay Packers tickets at home this season. It is, however, 37% above the average for Chicago Bears tickets on the road. The starting price for this game is $97.
The Bears come into Lambeau with a 4-3 record, but without their starting quarterback. Jay Cutler was injured in the team’s Week 7 loss to the Washington Redskins. Backup Josh McCown took over for the injured Cutler and will start for Chicago against Green Bay. The Bears were on a bye last week, which should have allowed time for head coach Marc Trestman to construct an offensive gameplan around McCown. Wide receiver Brandon Marshall and tight end Martellus Bennett could be the recipients of a lot of pass targets. The Packers defense, though, is coming off a game where they were able to control the Minnesota Vikings pass offense. Vikings receivers were rarely to get open against the Green Bay secondary and the Bears could see the same problem.
This may not have the same intrigue as a healthy matchup between these two teams could be, but it’s still Bears-Packers. Green Bay has won the past five meetings between these two teams and is in a good position to make it six in a row on Monday night. $214 might be on the higher side for a normal NFL game, but should be worth the price for the most recent installment of the Chicago-Green Bay rivalry.
