The New England Patriots have become one of the most popular teams in the NFL. In the late 1980’s and early 1990’s the Patriots were not considered as part of the upper echelon of the NFL. Those of us that grew up during those decades can remember the funny Patriots logo with the center snapping the ball. Who wants their logo to be the center? Can any NFL fans actually name more than five NFL centers? I digress. Something that all NFL fans enjoy is attending a game in the home stadium of their favorite team. Below is information related to the seating chart and 2013-14 schedule for the New England Patriots.
The New England Patriots play their home games at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. When planning to attend a game at Gillette Stadium remember ticket prices will be based on the location of the seats. Diehard fans will be willing to pay a little bit more to sit in the 100 level seats. The premiere seats are in sections 106, 107, 108, 109, 110 and 111. These are lower level sideline seats on the New England Patriots side of the field. This is also the East side of the stadium. Some Pats fans enjoy sitting behind the bench of the opposing team. These premiere sections include 129, 130, 131 and 132.
Taking the time to look at the seating chart of Gillette Stadium would be a very wise decision. Some fans purchase tickets just to get into the stadium. What they may not realize is they are sitting in the upper level corner seats such as section 318 or 323 in Gillette Stadium. Any fan that has had to sit in the upper deck recognizes the experience is a little bit different than in the lower level. That said, there are plenty of fans that will pay a much lower price and enjoy the unique atmosphere that comes with upper level seats.
If New England Patriots fans are looking for a truly unique experience there are club sections on each side of the stadium. These tickets are usually a little more expensive because of the luxuries that come with club seats. A personal “room” with clean restrooms and not having to deal with the public is something to be desired for fans that enjoy football but do not want to fit the crowds.
New England Patriots 2013-14 Season Schedule
Each and every year the New England Patriots will play the three teams in the AFC East. These teams include the Miami Dolphins, the New York Jets and the Buffalo Bills. In the last decade these teams have not been consistently competitive with the Patriots. There have been some years in which the Patriots had the division wrapped up by late November and early December.
What makes the NFL so compelling is the out of division schedule. If the Patriots won their division the previous season they will have to play all the other AFC division winners this season. This means their schedule is going to be much tougher than teams that finished in the both half of their divisions. Some have argued it is better to finish a season at the bottom of the division to receive a much easier schedule the subsequent year. Below is the 2013-14 New England Patriots season schedule:
Week 1 – September 8th, 2013 – at Buffalo Bills
Week 2 – September 12th, 2013 – New York Jets
Week 3 – September 22nd, 2013 – Tampa Bay Bucs
Week 4 – September 29th, 2013 – at Atlanta Falcons
Week 5 – October 6th, 2013 – at Cincinnati Bengals
Week 6 – October 13th, 2013 – New Orleans Saints
Week 7 – October 20th, 2013 – at New York Jets
Week 8 – October 27th, 2013 – Miami Dolphins
Week 9 – November 3th, 2013 – Pittsburgh Steelers
Week 10 – BYE
Week 11 – November 18th, 2013 – at Carolina Panthers
Week 12 – November 24th, 2013 – Denver Bronocos
Week 13 – December 1st, 2013 – at Houston Texans
Week 14 – December 8th, 2013 – Cleveland Browns
Week 15 – December 15th, 2013 – at Miami Dolphins
Week 16 – December 22nd, 2013 – at Baltimore Ravens
Week 17 – December 29th, 2013 – Buffalo Bills
This is a schedule that New England fans must love. They have the Steelers, Broncos and Saints at home. These are teams that should bring a great crowd and an exciting atmosphere. Tough road games at Miami and at Baltimore at the end of the season may determine if the Patriots can solidify home field advantage in the 2014 NFL playoffs. All Patriots fans are thinking about getting their playoff tickets as this team has been a mainstay in the NFL playoffs in the last decade.
