Picked as the worst team in the NFL at the start of the year the Jets have not so quietly changed the opinions of people with dramatic come from behind victories with rookie sensation Geno Smith leading the way. For as exciting as this offense has played this season it has been the defense that has elevated this team. New Yorks front seven is up there with the best in the league and has been terrorizing quarterback all season with 24 sacks thus far.
This week they come to Cincinnati to play our Bengals and one of the best defenses in the AFC. This season Bengals tickets for home games are averaging $126 on the secondary market, 23rd in the NFL and pretty affordable for a first place team. This week’s game is even more of a bargain than usually with prices averaging just $88 per seat ($19 get-in). That $88 is 30% below that average price for Bengals tickets and with prices down 7% this week and plenty of tickets still available prices may become even more affordable as gameday approaches. For the visitors, that price is 36% below the average price for New York Jets tickets on the road in 2013.
The Jets have beaten the Cincinnati Bengals nine out of their last 10 meetings since 1992 winning the last four in a row. This is the Jets first trip to Cincinnati since 2009 when they beat them in the AFC Wild Card 14-24 en route to their first of two straight AFC Championship games. This game will be a defensive battle and the team that makes the least mistakes will come away with the victory.
