It’s just a thought.
But how much would it cost to see a Cowboys-Houston Texans Super Bowl LI match-up at NRG Stadium in Houston?
Of course, first the teams would have to make it there.
Dallas hosts Green Bay in an NFC Divisional playoff game on Sunday. Houston plays at New England in an AFC Divisional playoff game on Saturday.
But suppose they both made it to the Super Bowl.
In crunching the numbers (dollars), the staff at TickPick.com said the get-in price to see the game would be $6,340.
That’s right, $6,340.
To get that price, TickPick factored in the current get-in price, team popularity and historical pricing, among other variables.
However, their latest “'probability of match up” shows a Patriots-Cowboys Super Bowl with a get-in price of $5,470.
For a minute there, I thought it was going to be expensive.
