‘Horrible Bosses 2’ Hotter Ticket Than N.Y. Jets’ Loss

Updated on

New York Jets tickets sold for less than local movie-theater prices with the team eliminated from playoff contention for the fourth straight season.

Some tickets to the Jets’ “Monday Night Football” home game last night -- a 16-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins -- were resold for $10, the least expensive price for a regular-season National Football League game at MetLife Stadium, which opened in 2010, according to secondary market ticket aggregator SeatGeek. The average resale price was $64.

An adult ticket to see “Horrible Bosses 2” at the AMC Clifton Commons 16, which is five miles from the stadium, was $12.62.

“In fact, Jets-Dolphins is a significantly cheaper ticket than this year’s Jets-Giants preseason game on Aug. 22,” Connor Gregoire, an analyst for New York-based SeatGeek, said in an e-mail. “The average resale price for that exhibition was $74, and the prevailing get-in price in the days leading up to it was $38.”

The Jets are now tied with three other NFL teams at 2-10, besting only the 1-11 Oakland Raiders. It was the first of two meetings with the Dolphins (7-5), who host New York to close the regular season on Dec. 28.

The least expensive tickets early yesterday were listed at $16, though some with a $50 face value sold for $10. The low price for last year was $13, for a game against the Cleveland Browns.

Face-value prices ranged from $50-$110 in the upper deck; $205-$295 in the club level and $127.50-$700 in the lower level. The cheapest lower-level seats were listed for $44.

Ticket prices for the game fell as the season progressed. They were selling for an average of $105 in August and September, $73 in October and $54 in November.
