According to Vivid Seats, a secondary-ticket marketplace, the median price for a Cowboys home game is $273, while the median price for a road game is $318. That makes the Cowboys the second most expensive road team to watch behind the Packers ($335), but ahead of the Patriots ($307), Steelers ($277), and Bears ($249).
The most expensive road game is the Week 2 game against the Eagles, where the current median price stands at $430. The most expensive Cowboys home game this year is the Week 5 game against the Patriots, where the average price is currently $415, or 73% above the season average.

Those prices are pretty steep, and your average football fan may prefer watching NFL games at home over watching them live. But then again, if you are reading this post about the Dallas Cowboys during the preseason on a fan blog, you are also very far from being a "regular football fan". So here's a question for you:
Looking at the entire Cowboys' schedule, which game would you like to attend in person this year, despite the potentially high cost of attending such a game?
Some of you may attend more than one game this season, many of you won't be able to attend a single game, so we're keeping this a hypothetical question. And while we're on the topic of hypotheticals, playoff games don't count and neither does the Super Bowl. So if you were getting ready to type "Super Bowl, BABY!", fuggedaboutit.
So which game will it be for you? Do you prefer a home game or an away game that's perhaps closer to your home? Would you take a divisional game over a non-divisional game? Or is there a particular opponent you want to see the Cowboys beat en route to postseason glory?
Choose away! Let us know in the comments which game it would be for you and why!
