What are the Top NFL Games of the 2021 Season?

The NFL schedule release put a date on every game. Here is our list for biggest NFL games of the 2021 season:

Buccaneers @ Patriots

The biggest game of the season will be when Tom Brady returns to Foxborough for the first-time as a visiting Quarterback to take on his former team, the Patriots. Every Patriots fan on the East Coast is already trying to get their hands on tickets to the biggest New England home game in years.

Packers @ Chiefs

This game will likely be a showdown between best Quarterbacks in the NFL as Aaron Rodgers takes on Patrick Mahomes. Fans in Kansas City will pack Arrowhead to see a game that could wind up being a Super Bowl LVI preview.

Bills @ Saints

The Bills Mafia heads down to the Big Easy in droves for this AFC vs NFC match-up. Look out, Bourbon Street.

Eagles @ Raiders

Vegas is an amazing road trip for Eagles fans who will surely take advantage of their first ever NFL game in Sin City.

Steelers @ Packers

This game just feels different as two legendary NFL teams match-up on the field in Green Bay.

Bears @ Raiders

Same for Bears fans, who are ready to click “Buy” on tickets for this fantastic NFL road trip.

Bucs @ Everyone

There will be a lot of demand for the Super Bowl Champions all season, but in particular when Tom Brady is back in his hometown (L.A.), or back playing in New York or Indy, which are both holdover rivalries from his days with the Pats. Fans will show up to see the greatest QB of this generation.

NFC West Matchups

With three teams predicted to have 10-win seasons, the NFC West is going to have some great games this year.

Full NFL Stadiums in 2021

All of us in the NFL want to see every one of our fans back. Football is simply not the same without fans, and we expect to have full stadiums in the upcoming season.”

Top Selling NFL Stadiums in 2021

  1. AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX
  2. SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA
  3. Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL
  4. Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, NV
  5. GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, MO

AT&T Stadium

It is no surprise that the Dallas Cowboys home stadium is one of the top selling NFL venues. The Cowboys are a popular team and AT&T Stadium is a large facility, with room for over 80,000 fans. Dallas is a popular NFL destination as every opponent wants to see their team face off against “America’s Team”.

SoFi Stadium

SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles is the home to both the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers. These two teams didn’t get to play in front of full crowds when the stadium opened in 2020, so SoFi is going to be a popular destination in 2021 when most fans experience it for the first time.

Raymond James Stadium

Raymond James Stadium plays host to the Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Winning the Super Bowl is sure to bring in fans and Raymond James has the second-highest average ticket price among our top 5. Fans from across the country will flock to Florida to see Tom Brady lead the Bucs in 2021.

Allegiant Stadium

Allegiant Stadium is the most expensive ticket in the NFL. With an average ticket price of about $725, it is almost twice as expensive as the rest of the stadiums on this list. Las Vegas will be a go-to destination for fans eager to see their team play the Raiders and the price will likely be high year after year.

Arrowhead Stadium

Arrowhead Stadium is one of the most storied venues in the NFL. Patrick Mahomes has led the Chiefs to the last two Super Bowls, so demand for this perennial powerhouse team is high. One of the bigger stadiums in the NFL, average ticket price at Arrowhead comes in middle of the pack in this list of top 5 venues.

Biggest Day of Football Sales in 2021

The largest single day of football sales in the whole calendar year is the 24 hours after the NFL schedule is released. Fans jump on the opportunity to purchase the best tickets for their favorite games. We tracked pro football sales over a calendar year and show the results below. There is a concentration of sales after schedule release. We did not include ticket sales for the 2020 NFL season because of Coronavirus. Instead we rolled back to the 2019 and 2018 to show just how much demand comes for tickets right after the schedule is released.

NFL Schedule Release Date: May 12th, 2021

The NFL has announced the date of the 2021 NFL schedule release is Wednesday, May 12th. That keeps with the trend of the previous few years that the NFL releases the schedule on a weeknight around the NFL Draft. In 2020, the schedule release date was delayed a few weeks from April to May and the league intends to keep the schedule release after the NFL Draft in 2021. The official date of the NFL schedule release is often not known until the last minute as the league and teams make the determination on their side.
