    The Cleveland Browns have stumbled in recent years, with their first round draft pick QB Johnny Manziel garnering more attention off the field than on. But FirstEnergy Stadium offers some of the lowest prices overall with NFL tickets costing, on average, $38.33. Along with the Kansas City Chiefs, the Browns have the second-cheapest tickets.

Notably, the Chiefs tie with the Browns for the second-cheapest average ticket price.

    • Price for a beer: $6
    • Price for a soft drink: $5
    • Price for a hot dog: $5
    • Parking: $25

    The Arizona Cardinals finished last season with an excellent 13-3 record before the Carolina Panthers manhandled them in the NFC Championship. That being said, Cardinals fans can still look forward to another season, as well as the University of Phoenix Stadium. Costing roughly $145 for two people to attend, University of Phoenix is one of the best NFL stadiums for parking, the second cheapest in the league.

    From Houston to Nashville, Tenn., from the Oilers to the Titans, Tennessee has come a long way from heady days in the 1999-2000 season, when they lost to the St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXIV — by a yard. Since then, the Titans have struggled. Still, Titans tickets cost about $43, which isn’t a bad deal, and hot dogs come in at $4 a pop.

    Cost to attend: $150

    • Ticket price: $45.00
    • Price for a beer: $7.75

The Buccaneers have lost their footing since then but scored some surprising victories last season, finishing 6-10 and improving on their 2-14 season in 2014.

    Although championships might be elusive, the Buccaneers offer affordable NFL tickets — the ninth cheapest — and beer prices of $7.75 for 20 oz. Along with below-average parking, the cost for two to attend a Buccaneers game is only about $150.

    • Price for a beer: $7.50
    • Price for a soft drink: $5
    • Price for a hot dog: $6.25

    The Detroit Lions have fallen on dark days as a franchise, having failed to advance past the first round of the NFL playoffs since 1991. In recent years, the Lions put up respectable numbers, including going 11-5 in 2014, good for second place in their division.

    Although championships are few and far between, Lions fans enjoy ticket prices that are cheaper than average. Plus, Ford Field is one of the best NFL stadiums for cheap parking: At $11, it has the cheapest parking in the league.

  • Miami Dolphins Game at New Miami Stadium

    • Ticket price: $49.60
    • Price for a beer: $7.75
    • Price for a soft drink: $4
    • Price for a hot dog: $6
    • Parking: $20

    The Miami Dolphins aren’t exactly bad, but they also haven’t made it to the NFL playoffs since 2008. The Dolphins play in a competitive division that includes the New England Patriots, making it difficult to finish the season in the top spot. For Dolphins fans, the picture is rosier as New Miami Stadium offers affordable tickets and more for your money in beer, soft drinks and parking.

    Cost to attend: $155.00

    • Ticket price: $48.00
    • Price for a beer: $7.50
    • Price for a soft drink: $6.50
    • Price for a hot dog: $5.50
    • Parking: $20

    The Atlanta Falcons showed promise in 2015, winning six games out of their first seven of the season. After an overtime loss to Tampa Bay in Week 8, however, the Falcons dropped the next five games and finished the season 8-8.

    Fans endured a disappointing season last year but can look forward to cheap game day prices at the Georgia Dome. Falcons tickets average $48 per ticket, the 10th cheapest.

  • San Diego Chargers Game at Qualcomm Stadium

    Cost to attend: $155.83

    • Ticket price: $44.67
    • Price for a beer: $9
    • Price for a soft drink: $5.75
    • Price for a hot dog: $6
    • Parking: $25

    The San Diego Chargers, along with the St. Louis Rams and Oakland Raiders, were one of the possible teams to relocate to Los Angeles. Ultimately, the NFL approved the Rams move to L.A., leaving the Chargers at Qualcomm in San Diego.

    Refreshments will cost you a lot at a Chargers game, especially soft drinks. But Qualcomm Stadium makes up for this with cheap tickets and parking, for a reasonable total cost of $155.83 for two to attend.

  • Indianapolis Colts Game at Lucas Oil Stadium

    Cost to attend: $158.17

    • Ticket price: $51.33

Since Manning’s departure, the Colts have restored some credibility, making it to the conference championship in 2014.

  • Carolina Panthers Game at Bank of America Stadium

    Cost to attend: $159.33

    • Ticket price: $54.67
    • Price for a beer: $5
    • Price for a soft drink: $5
    • Price for a hot dog: $5

Since then, the Panthers have appeared in the 2004 Super Bowl and 2015 Super Bowl, losing to the Patriots and Broncos, respectively.

    Defeat in Super Bowl 50 might have been tough to swallow, but game day prices at Bank of America Stadium will go down smooth. Beers will only run you $5. Soft drinks are a good deal as well, while parking costs a manageable $20.

    • Price for a hot dog: $6.75
    • Parking: $35

    If you’re trying to save money on an NFL game in the Bay Area, then definitely check out Oakland Coliseum. The cost for two to attend a Raiders game is far less than seeing the San Francisco 49ers. Raiders tickets came out to the fifth cheapest in the league, but keep your eye on the cost of refreshments. At $10.75, beer at a Raiders game costs the most out of all NFL stadiums.

Thus, Vikings fans look forward to a promising 2016 season, as well as cheap refreshments at U.S. Bank Stadium, where hot dogs and soft drinks cost only $3, and parking just $15.

  • New Orleans Saints Game at Mercedes-Benz Superdome

    Cost to attend: $173.50

    • Ticket price: $50.00
    • Price for a beer: $9
    • Price for a soft drink: $4.75
    • Price for a hot dog: $5.50

    The Mercedez-Benz Superdome suffered significant damage during Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Since that year, the New Orleans Saints have appeared in five NFL playoffs, winning their first Super Bowl in 2010.

    The cost of Saints tickets, about $50 on average, helps Mercedez-Benz Stadium rank among the cheaper NFL stadiums to attend a game. Refreshments and parking, however, are on the more expensive side, especially the $9 cost for a 16 oz. beer.

  • New York Jets Game at MetLife Stadium

    Cost to attend: $193.67

    • Price for a beer: $5

    Since 2011, the Jets have failed to make the playoffs. Though ticket prices rank on the costlier side, MetLife Stadium offers cheap prices on beer, soft drinks and affordable parking.

    • Price for a beer: $6.75

    The Denver Broncos won back-to-back Super Bowls in 1998 and 1999 under all-star quarterback John Elway. Throughout the 2000s, the Broncos remained a competitive franchise, but when they acquired Peyton Manning in 2012, the team really took off and won Super Bowl 50 against the Panthers.

    Fans who endure the altitude at Sports Authority Field can take advantage of inexpensive beers and hot dogs. Parking and ticket costs are on the higher end, bringing the cost for two to attend a Broncos game to just under $200.

  • Houston Texans Game at NRG Stadium

    • Ticket price: $70.33
    • Price for a beer: $5
    • Price for a soft drink: $4.75
    • Price for a hot dog: $5.75
    • Parking: $33.20

    Houston used to be home of the Houston Oilers until they moved to Nashville and became the Titans. In 2002, the city earned approval to start a new expansion team, and the Houston Texans were born.

    Starting in the 2010s, the Houston Texans became playoff contenders, but have failed to advance through the divisional rounds. In terms of game day prices, $5 beers are definitely a plus. Parking, hot dogs and Texans tickets, however, all cost more than most other NFL stadiums.

    • Price for a beer: $8

    Averaging $76.13 per ticket, Heinz Field rounds out the top 10 most expensive NFL stadiums to watch a home game. Beers, soft drinks and parking all cost higher than average.

  • Seattle Seahawks Game at CenturyLink Field

    Cost to attend: $232.00

    • Ticket price: $78.00
    • Price for a beer: $5
    • Price for a soft drink: $5
    • Price for a hot dog: $3
    • Parking: $50

    Under quarterback Russell Wilson, the Seattle Seahawks have become perennial frontrunners in the NFC West, and the NFL in general. The Seahawks trounced the Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII 43 to 8 and nearly beat the Patriots the next year inSuper Bowl XLIX.

    Watching the Seahawks at CenturyLink Field costs about $78 per ticket, higher than three-quarters of the NFL. Parking isn’t easy on your wallet either, ranking the third highest. But beer and hot dog prices are among the cheapest

  • New York Giants Game at MetLife Stadium

    Cost to attend: $246.67

    • Ticket price: $94.33
    • Price for a beer: $5

    • Price for a soft drink: $4.50
    • Price for a hot dog: $5
    • Parking: $35

    Since reaching the Super Bowl in 2005 against the Patriots, the Eagles have remained competitive, though not the consistent powerhouse they used to be. When it comes to game day prices, Eagles tickets average on the higher end of the spectrum, the fifth highest on this list.

  • New England Patriots Game at Gillette Stadium

    Cost to attend: $249.83

    • Ticket price: $89.67

    • Price for a soft drink: $4
    • Price for a hot dog: $3.75
    • Parking: $40

    The New England Patriots have racked up four Super Bowl championships, but they’ve also garnered a more dubious statistic. The Patriots are the only NFL team to finish a regular season undefeated and failed to win the Super Bowl.

    The Patriots’ 16-0 season was back in 2007, and they’ve since won Super Bowl XLIX. Perhaps not surprisingly, the top-tier Patriots command high ticket prices at Gillette Stadium. Besides tickets, however, you get a lot for your buck when it comes to beer, soft drinks and hot dogs.

  • Green Bay Packers Game at Lambeau Field

    Cost to attend: $260.00

    • Ticket price: $92.00

    • Price for a soft drink: $4.50
    • Price for a hot dog: $5.75
    • Parking: $40

    The Green Bay Packers home Lambeau Field holds the distinction of being owned by the fans. That, however, doesn’t translate to cheaper prices. Packers tickets are the third most expensive in the NFL, and at $40, parking is on the high end. On the bright side, you get a lot of soda for your money at a Packers game.

  • Chicago Bears Game at Soldier Field

    Cost to attend: $261.50

    • Price for a beer: $9.25
    • Price for a soft drink: $5
    • Price for a hot dog: $5
    • Parking: $49

    Chicago Bears NFL stadium Soldier Field is the second smallest in the league despite being the second largest market in the NFL. When it comes to Bears tickets, $87 per ticket is certainly among the highest. Parking at Soldier Field is costly at $49 on average, which, combined with other amenities, makes the Bears the fourth-most expensive NFL game to attend.

    Cost to attend: $270.67

    • Ticket price: $93.33
    • Price for a beer: $10

    At $10 per 16 oz. beer, prices are the second highest per ounce out of all NFL stadiums, behind only the Eagles. And costing an average of $93.33 per regular season ticket, Levi’s Stadium is the second-most expensive stadium in the NFL.

  • Washington Redskins Game at FedEx Field

    Cost to attend: $272.17

    • Ticket price: $87.33
    • Price for a beer: $9
    • Price for a soft drink: $5
    • Price for a hot dog: $6
    • Parking: $57.50

    The Washington Redskins could be turning their franchise around, having finished first in the NFC East last season. The last time the Redskins won the Super Bowl was 1992, but that hasn’t stopped ticket prices from settling around $87.33, the sixth highest in the league.
