There may be a lot of Chicago Bears fans in Cleveland this weekend.
Tickets on StubHub mid-afternoon Friday were available for as low as $6, with 2,500 on sale.
Another ticket resale sight called SeatGeek has upper deck tickets for $4, with 2,400 available.
This is what happens when a team goes 4-9 and threatens to not win six games for the sixth year in a row. Fans who purchased tickets hoping for a competitive team abandon hope when the temperature is supposed to be in the 20s -- especially when the team loses two games in a row during the fourth quarter.
SeatGeek sent out information about the Cleveland Browns ticket situation that shows Browns tickets are at the lowest price since the start of the 2011 season.
While those prices are available in Cleveland, the average price of a Bears ticket on the resale market is $273, Connor Gregoire, a communications analyst for SeatGeek, wrote in an e-mail.
He adds that one-third of the traffic coming for the game to the site is from Chicago, which indicates a fair amount of Bears fans could be in FirstEnergy Stadium.
Gregoire also reported that on SeatGeek:
The average resale price for the Browns-Bears fell 51 percent the past two weeks, from $74 to $36.
When the Bears hosted the Browns in the preseason, the average resale price was $53.
Thirty-three of the 64 preseason games drew a higher average resale price than the Browns average of $36.
The Browns have been the second-lowest priced ticket on the resale market in the NFL this season -- $77 compared to the low of $49 in Jacksonville.
