The Dallas Cowboys gear up for another postseason run, looking to put their controversial loss in last year’s playoffs to the Green Bay Packers behind them. They’ll have to do it without DeMarco Murray, who joined the division rival Philadelphia Eagles during the offseason.
The Cowboys are one of the teams that people want to see the most and fans will have the opportunity to do so. According to an article by CBSSports.com, the Cowboys are in the top third in the NFL in estimated travel miles this season at 17,148. Specifically, they rank 12th out of the 32 NFL teams, and have zero trips that exceed 2,000 miles.
With Cowboys secondary ticket prices per TiqIQ.com, below is a combination of the highest-priced Cowboys road games, with travel options provided by Hipmunk.com to evaluate some possible road trip destination for America’s Team this year.
12/13/2015 | Green Bay Packers vs. Dallas Cowboys | Lambeau Field | Average Price: $385.01 | Get-in Price: $173
The Cowboys don’t have to wait long to get another shot at the Packers, as Dallas heads to Lambeau Field in December. Unless a 17-hour car ride is in the plans, round trip flights to Milwaukee are the option for this game. The travel time is cut down to just over four hours for nonstop flights and will cost about $170, which could be great value given the recent history between these two storied organizations, and their potentially high place in the standings.
10/4/2015 | New Orleans Saints vs. Dallas Cowboys | Mercedes-Benz Superdome | Average Price: $363 | Get-in Price: $156
Flights to New Orleans are similarly priced on Hipmunk, coming in at about $150 for round trip options. The hour-and-a-half estimated flight looks to be a lot more favorable than the 500-mile, seven-and-a-half-hour car ride from Dallas to New Orleans. It’s not easy to win on the road against the Saints, who are desperate to turn things around after a down season in 2014, but no matter the opponent, attending a game at the Superdome is always a fun time due to the festive and live atmosphere.
11/22/2015 | Miami Dolphins vs. Dallas Cowboys | Sun Life Stadium | Average Price: $359.25 | Get-in Price: $116
Another long trip for the Cowboys results in a game against the Miami Dolphins in the week before Thanksgiving. The 1,300-mile trip is recommended being done through the air, as the nearly-20-hour drive is a lot of mileage for any car. The nonstop flights last just under three hours and cost around $230 for a round trip.
