The NFC East is the only division in which all four teams are road draws, though the Giants and Eagles only make the list of top road draws by the narrowest of margins.
About a month ago, we looked at the hottest tickets in the NFL, and saw that two Cowboys away games, @ Bears and @ Saints, were among the top ten most expensive tickets in the NFL. Today, we'll preview the top eleven cheapest games for the budget-conscious NFL fan, and it shouldn't come as a surprise that most of those games involve teams ranked as the weakest draws in the league. Here are the bottom 11 NFL games by average ticket price:
|Jaguars @ Browns||$79|
|Jaguars @ Raiders||$80|

The average current ticket price per Vividseats.com for all NFL games is $203.75. Ticket price data is from 8/7/2013, fees for parking, suites, luxury boxes, and the London games have been excluded.
Fans across the NFL are willing to pay a premium to see the Cowboys, none more than in Kansas City, San Diego, and New Orleans, who'll have to fork over about twice the average home game price to watch the Cowboys. Here are the average prices for the Cowboys' road games.
