10 Cheapest Beers in the NFL

4. New England Patriots and Arizona Cardinals
Price of a small draft beer: $7.50 for 22 ounces in New England, $6 for 16 ounces in Arizona
Price per ounce: 38 cents

If you were dropped on the Earth three days ago and told to look at these two teams, you might see some similarities. Both eschewed the big-city identities of Boston and Phoenix for more regional, big-tent, suburb-friendly monikers. Both feature quarterbacks that were among the league's elite a decade ago -- though one has done a better job of staying there than the other. Both have made a Super Bowl appearance in the past five years and lost in close, dramatic fashion.

To just about everyone else, however, there's little tying the Patriots, who have missed the playoffs only five times since 1994, to the Cardinals, who have made the playoffs only three times during that span. Since 1985, the Patriots have been to seven Super Bowls and won three. The Cardinals, meanwhile, have posted exactly three winning seasons in that span, all after moving to Arizona in 1988.

Cardinals fans have earned their low beer price, especially after ownership raised average ticket prices 17% from last season based on just about no merit. Patriots fans, meanwhile, get that low unit price as a tradeoff for paying the highest average ticket price in the land at nearly $118 to watch their perennial favorite. That's on top of an average of $40 for parking in spaces that are often little more than abandoned mud lots or excess gas station space. Performance, ticket prices, geography: Almost none of it changes what you pay for a beer on game day.
