Week 3 of the NFL Regular season gets underway tomorrow, so I thought I’d take a look at the top match-ups according to ticket demand this week. And these were the results (via NFL Ticket Exchange)
1 & 2. Chicago Bears (2-0) @ Pittsburgh Steelers (0-2)
Now, by no means would I think of this as #1 match-up for this week. If it were my guess, it’d be the Kansas City Chiefs @ Philadelphia Eagles. But, the Steelers have one of the top fan bases and this game is in Pittsburgh, so I’ll go ahead and attribute it to that.
3 & 4. Indianapolis (1-1) @ San Francisco 49ers (1-1)
This being the #2 match-up seems spot on. QB Battle between Andrew Luck and Colin Kaepernick, two of the top young, talented quarterbacks. Statistically, Luck 43/66 pass completion, Kaepernick 40/67, 3 touchdowns a piece on the season so far. And you also have former coach in Harbaugh going up against former star player Luck which is always something of interest.
5 & 6. Oakland Raiders (1-1) @ Denver Broncos (2-0)
Mile High, Monday night football, division rivals, Peyton Manning… need I say more?
7 & 8. New York Giants (0-2) @ Carolina Panthers (0-2)
These are two teams that have a lot to figure out. Both teams have a good amount of talent on their roster but have started out with back to back losses. Pretty even match-up, good game to watch, not too surprising top 5 for the week.
9 &10. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-2) @ Seattle Seahawks (2-0)
This will most likely result in a blowout, but easy W for the Seahawks at home nonetheless. While blowout games are far from interesting, guaranteed Seattle fans will leave happy.
