Stub.com Featured News of the Week: The NFL in Week 1

NEWARK, DE--(Marketwire - September 16, 2010) -  Stub.com, one of the top providers of concert, sports and NFL tickets, is featuring NFL news from week one.

NFL fans worldwide are happy to see the 2010 NFL regular season begin. Teams like the Oakland Raiders and the Cleveland Browns (tickets) spent the offseason hoping that they could turn a new leaf in 2010. Other teams, like the New Orleans Saints (tickets), are hoping to change history, and show that they have what it takes to become repeat champions this season.

Unfortunately, the Oakland Raiders gave the Tennessee Titans little resistance in manhandling the Raiders with a final score of 38-13. The Raiders are hosting the St. Louis Rams this week -- another struggling team -- so there may still be hope for a win. The Pittsburgh Steelers (tickets), fresh off an overtime win against the Atlanta Falcons, will be traveling to Tennessee this week. 

The Cleveland Browns watched their 14-3 lead dwindle against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (tickets) in week one, as Josh Freeman -- broken thumb and all -- managed to throw two touchdown passes and take the lead for the 17-14 win. Unfortunately for Browns fans hoping to watch the team play on their home turf, the team will travel this week to take on the Baltimore Ravens (tickets). In week two, the Bucs will travel to Raymond James Stadium to play against the 0-1 Carolina Panthers.

Just when the Dallas Cowboys (tickets) watched Tony Romo toss a TD pass to Roy Williams for the game winning play against the Washington Redskins (tickets), Alex Barron was called for holding, and the touchdown didn't count. In game one alone, the Cowboys had 12 penalties. Things will have to improve, as the Cowboys host the 1-0 Chicago Bears at Cowboys Stadium this week.

Mark Lewis, Marketing Director for Stub.com, sees a pattern with ticket purchasing habits. "Each year, there is always a swarm of NFL ticket purchases at the beginning of the season. Depending on how teams do as the season progresses, ticket prices can increase and become difficult to get -- so fans grab them up early."
