Redskins Thanksgiving tickets cheaper than the movies

Darren Haynes discusses the cheap tickets that the Redskins are giving away, and what you could buy for the same cost.

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - Don't have Thanksgiving plans or not a huge fan of turkey? Well, you may have another fun option.

You can go to an NFL game on Thanksgiving for as low as $7.21. 

That's according to prices on StubHub that range from $7 to $325 "dream seats" or luxury boxes.

It's not so surprising that the tickets prices may be lower on Thanksgiving when a lot of season ticket holders may be spending the day with family. But, $7 -- that's pretty outrageous. 

It may be because the Redskins are 4-6 and almost out of the playoff hunt and the Giants are 2-8 --- yup.

Even though that's a good enough reason for the low ticket prices, we decided to look at the other Thanksgiving games. 

Vikings at Lions tickets are selling for anywhere from $99 to nearly $800 and Chargers at Cowboys are selling for $125 to nearly $600. 

You can even compare the Redskins ticket prices to the Wizards. The cheapest ticket you can get for a Wizards game is $26. There are 41 Wizards home games a year versus the 8 Redskins games at FedEx field. 

What else can you get for $7? 

You can get a foot-long from Subway, five tacos from Taco Bell, a Chipotle burrito, two gallons of gasoline, not even a whole 6-pack of beer, one ride on the Metro, popcorn at the movie theater (not even a large one) and a monthly subscription to Hulu (although those prices are going up). 

If you do decide to go, you can also spend all day tailgating with the Redskins.

So, grab your Redskins gear and head to the game -- you can probably get food, alcohol and a game day experience for less that what a Thanksgiving meal would cost you.
