It’s no secret that the Jacksonville Jaguars have been a hard sell to their fans and everyone else the past few years, but a new regime has ticket buyers looking at some of their 2013 home games with some optimism.
Blaine Gabbert is still the likely culprit at quarterback in 2013, but his short-comings may not be so evident if veteran running back Maurice Jones-Drew can return to top form and be the beast he was just two seasons ago. Considering he’s in a contract year, he’ll have every bit of motivation to do exactly that.
On the flip-side, Jacksonville has started over with a new regime, and one of their main focuses has been improving a shaky defense. Rookie safety Jonathan Cyprien could help make Jacksonville’s home game average price of just $132 end up being quite the bargain.
Not sold on that notion? Join us as we dissect Jacksonville Jaguars tickets for the upcoming season, as well as their three most expensive game and best value buys for the new season:
Top 3 Most Expensive Home Games
- (12/5) vs. Houston Texans | Avg: $143 | Get-in: $43
The Jaguars certainly won’t be confused with favorites with this match-up, but Arian Foster and J.J. Watt are sure to get fans in the seats. After all, Jacksonville and Houston poured it on thick in a crazy overtime game last year, and fans will pile in for the mere possibility of that happening again.

- (9/29) vs. Indianapolis Colts | Avg: $139 | Get-in: $43
Andrew Luck is expected to be even better in his second season, and he brings in his high-flying vertical offense for a divisional showdown. Indy isn’t so tough that Jacksonville can’t compete with them, either, so fans get a potentially high-scoring rivalry game that could have a shot at producing a win, too.
- (9/8) vs. Kansas City Chiefs | Avg: $134 | Get-in: $43
It’s the home opener and the Jags are facing a team that was terrible in 2012. Every team has optimism at the start of the season, and Jacksonville fans are blessed with an opener that actually yields a realistic shot at a 1-0 start.
Top Home Game Value Buys
- (11/17) vs. Arizona Cardinals | Avg: $122 | Get-in: $35
Anytime you go into the new year assuming your favorite team won’t be making the playoffs, you have to jump on the home games that are potential wins. AZ was awful last year, and still could be, even with some solid improvements. If the Jags can control the clock early with MJD, they could have a shot at stealing this well-priced game at home.
- (12/22) vs. Tennessee Titans | $126 | Get-in: $35
The Titans strolling into town brings value from a divisional rivalry standpoint, but also because these teams might actually matchup pretty well. Jake Locker still hasn’t taken his game to the next level yet, so there is every reason to believe Jax can keep it competitive in late December.
