Tickets for the Eagles-Giants Game in Philly on Monday Are Downright Cheap

Sure, the team hasn’t been looking great, but we’re still in the running for the playoffs. Technically.

I’ve never been to an Eagles game at Lincoln Financial Field — either because tickets have always been too expensive or because the season ticket-holder who has been promising to take me for years has repeatedly welched. (He knows who he is.) But this Monday, I think I’m going to have to go to the Linc for the Eagles-Giants matchup. Tickets are downright cheap.

After the Eagles lost achingly to the Dolphins in Miami on Sunday, the frequently fluctuating prices for “verified resale” Eagles tickets to Monday night’s game via Ticketmaster dropped, and they continue to fall. There are scads of tickets available.

As of Wednesday afternoon, there were hundreds of tickets for sale in the 200 level of the Linc for the Eagles-Giants game, some of them dipping in price below $50. One person is selling tickets in Section 207 for $45 each. Not exactly up close and personal, but you’re at the game.

We found great deals elsewhere in the stadium as well, in case you don’t want to be relegated to the nosebleeds. You can find seats in Section 137 on the Eagles’ sideline for as little as $126. A bit more — about $160 per ticket total — will get you a seat just a few rows behind the goalpost.

If you’re wondering about the weather, the current call — remembering that we’re still days away here — is for a chance of showers. The low temperature for Monday night is predicted to be a seasonally warm 53 degrees.

And keep in mind that we’re not out of contention for the playoffs, even if it seems like we should be.

“We’re not throwing in the towel,” Eagles coach Doug Pederson said at a press conference earlier this week. “We have a lot of football left. We have a great opportunity. There is still a chance for us. We control our own destiny. So that’s going to be the message moving forward to this football team, and the leaders have to embrace that and they have to also take it to the team as well.”

Yes, our playoff hopes are only alive because other teams suck as well. And, yes, we need to win all four of our remaining games. But that road starts with this Monday’s game against the Giants.

Hey, crazier things have happened, right?

I’ll see you at the Linc. Well, or at Chickie’s & Pete’s if it’s raining.
