The Pittsburgh Steelers were floundering heading into week eight. They played just three good minutes of football in a week seven win and even at 4-3, experts were talking as if Mike Tomlin’s crew was in serious trouble.
They responded with a 51-34 thrashing of the Colts in week eight. Then last week, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger added another six touchdowns in a 43-23 win over division rival Baltimore. They no longer rely on elite defense, but instead appear to have embraced an airing it out offensive approach.
Whatever their identity is, doesn’t matter. Sticking to one and mastering it is the idea. Let’s see if the Steelers can do that, while analyzing the value of Steelers tickets in the month of November:
Week 10 @ New York Jets (11/9/14) | Average Ticket Price: $146 | Get-in Ticket Price: $64
Big Ben and company could be rolling out of the Big Apple at 7-3 and in full control of the AFC North division. They just need to make sure they don’t take the lowly Jets lightly. New York can’t stop the pass at all and their offense is a mess, so this could be win number four in a row for the Steel curtain. It’s also a great opportunity for Roethlisberger to continue his historic streak.
The average price for Steelers vs. NY Jets tix is just under $150 making it a reasonable bargain for Steelers fans in the NYC area.
Week 11 @ Tennessee Titans (11/17/14) | Average Ticket Price: $158 | Get-in Ticket Price: $37
Steelers tickets are at their cheapest for the month of November when Zach Mettenberger and the Titans play host to Pittsburgh. Tennessee’s defense isn’t scary and their offense lacks talent or an identity, so there’s little reason to think the Steelers won’t take this. Make the win streak five games and the Steelers go nuts in a blowout, and you can grab Steelers vs. Titans tickets from ScoreBig for as little as $37.
Week 13 VS. New Orleans Saints (11/30/14) | Average Ticket Price: $192 | Get-in Ticket Price: $71
Pittsburgh could seriously be 8-3 heading into a big home matchup with Drew Brees and the Saints. Pittsburgh’s defense may not be able to completely shut down New Orleans’ offense, but they’ve played better at home and the Saints aren’t themselves on the road. It’s a tough one, but Pittsburgh could cap November with a six-game winning streak and a 9-3 mark.
