For Redskins fans considering making the trip to Dallas for Thanksgiving to see their team take on the Cowboys, it might be time to think again. Data from TickPick.com shows that the average cost of a single ticket is approaching $500, the highest cost for a Thanksgiving game in years.
The soaring costs shouldn't be a surprise, as the Cowboys have the best record in the NFL behind rookies Dak Prescott and Ezekiell Elliott. The last time the Redskins faced the Cowboys on Thanksgiving in 2012, Robert Griffin III led Washington to a runaway victory.
Next Thursday's game should be much closer, as the first Skins-Cowboys tilt this season ended 27-23. Washington had a chance to win the game late but an ill-timed interception in the end zone left the 'Skins short.
TickPick - which has been tracking ticket prices since 2013 - shows the current average ticket price for the game at $470. The previous high for Thanksgiving tickets came in 2015 when Green Bay retired Brett Farve's jersey during Packers-Bears, and those tickets averaged $345.
If Dallas can beat the Ravens this weekend to move to 9-1, expect prices to go even higher. If Washington beats Green Bay Sunday night to move to 6-3-1, the matchup becomes even more exciting, and prices will surely reflect that.
