They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, and for Bills fans who haven't had a home game in nearly a month, that's reflected in ticket prices for upcoming games.
The Bills are 3-2 after the bye week and in the thick of the way-too-early playoff hunt. As such, there aren't a ton of value buys on the resale market for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. Between tickets and parking, it will likely cost you at least $100 to see the game in person.
(Here's where you can cue "you don't know how good you have it" cries from fans in other NFL cities. Whatever. There's no additional charge to watch the game at home. We're looking for value here.)
Anyway, here are the best prices for Sunday's game. Always be sure to look for the total price with fees and not just the advertised price. And remember all prices are subject to change.
Bucs at Bills
• Best price available for a single: $69 on NFL Ticket Exchange (really 81.77 with fees) for Section 314, Row 24 ... or $62 on StubHub (really $81.80 with fees) in Section 308, Row 30.
• Best price available as pair: Advertised as $55 each or $130.36 for the pair with fees on NFL Ticket Exchange in Section 336, Row 22.
• Best price in the family sections (224 through 227) which are alcohol-free: Advertised as $78 each, or $184.86 with fees for a pair in Section 224, Row 6 via NFL Ticket Exchange.
• Best price for a single at midfield in the lower bowl: Advertised as $123 on StubHub ($154.69 with fees) for Section 112, Row 36.
• Tips: If you just want to go a game, not necessarily this game, wait it out until later in the season. Tickets for December home games against the Colts and Dolphins can be had for under $30.
