As of Monday, September 5th, there are 2,226 game tickets still available to the Broncos Monday Night season opener against the Oakland Raiders on our TiqIQ widget. The Broncos will kick off the 2011 season on Monday, September 12th at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium against the rival Raiders, marking the 15th time the team's have faced off on MNF (the longest of such streak).
Tickets to the game are starting at $73, with the average ticket price coming in at $196, an average which is just $9 dollars more than the average price of a ticket to an NFL game this season. Dating back to 2000, the Broncos have won 11 straight home openers, the longest such streak in the NFL.
The game will kickoff the Broncos 52nd season, and could be an historic one. Second overall pick Von Miller (SLB), Rahim Moore (S) and Orlando Franklin (RT) are all expected to start, which would be the first time since 1973 that Denver has opened the season with three rookie starters. Meanwhile, veteran Brian Dawkins, who is entering his 16th season, will be joining Paul Krause and Eugene Robinson as the only other players in league history to play the safety position in 16 NFL seasons.
The Broncos own a 21-27-2 record against the Raiders at home, but have lost the past three and haven't beaten Oakland at home since 2007. Under new Coach John Fox, the team looks to turn that streak around. Denver owns a 20-10-1 Monday Night record at home and are aiming to make it 21-10-1 next week.
The game is sure to be an important one for the Broncos, who are looking to start the year off on the right foot. To see a complete list of tickets available to the game and ticket prices, see our TiqIQ page.
