Link : Cleveland Browns Tickets The Cleveland Browns are 2-8, but it’s arguable that they’ve been playing some of their most competitive football in years. And that’s with an offense with mostly rookie starters, backed by Brandon Weeden, Trent Richardson and Josh Gordon. Combine that all with a divisional matchup against the Ben Roethlisberger-less Pittsburgh Steelers, and Browns fans like their chances of getting to 3-8 after week 12. Ticket prices for this game have gone down 9% this week bringing the average price to this contest down to $130, which is still 36% above the avg price for Browns tickets this season.On the low end fans can still get into Cleveland Browns Stadium for $58, with many more seats available for under $100. Despite the Browns being a tougher out than in the past and Big Ben on the shelf, the $130 price for this game in Cleveland is 40% higher than their 2011 matchup, and 25% below the price of the 2010 contest. With that said, this ends up being the Browns’ third most expensive home game of 2012 and the eight highest overall game of week 12, while it comes in as Pittsburgh’s second cheapest road game (ahead of an October date with the Bengals). It makes complete sense that this game is low for the Steelers, as Pittsburgh is sans Roethlisberger and wide receiver Antonio Brown, and is even down to third string quarterback Charlie Batch. But it’s a shock that it’s this cheap for Cleveland, as the Steelers are normally a big draw and this year’s version of the Browns is playing some spirited football. However, Cleveland’s record is likely keeping them from pushing out high-priced tickets. While that’s the case this week, everything on paper still suggests another tough battle in which the Browns have a realistic shot at emerging the victors.
