NFL Season Kicks-Off Tonight With Tom Brady and the Patriots Taking on the Steelers

SOUTH WINDSOR, CT--(Marketwired - Sep 10, 2015) - After months of talking way too much about the PSI levels of footballs, it's finally time for the 2015-16 NFL regular season to get underway. The season will kick-off with the defending champion New England Patriots taking on the Pittsburgh Steelers tonight at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, MA.

To date, tickets to opening night are selling for an average of $542* on the marketplace, more than 34% higher than the season average for all Patriots home games and 155% higher than the league-wide average ticket selling price.

"Patriots fans are arguably the most loyal and passionate in the league," Tim Fraser, Sports Specialist,, said. "Opening night will be special for the fans and players, as the team unveils its newest championship banner. It's a can't-miss event for anyone who loves the Pats."

The game has added significance thanks to the presence of Tom Brady, whose four-game suspension was vacated, making the legendary quarterback eligible to play in Week 1. Without Brady, the team recently stated they would not have raised the championship banner until he returned.

The remaining games on the Week 1 NFL schedule take place on Sunday, September 13, and Monday, September 14. Visit to purchase tickets to see any games from all 32 NFL teams.
