Top 3:

Houston Texans

The Texans has one of the more intriguing story lines going into the preseason. The team hired a new coach in Bill O'Brien and took Jadeveon Clowney with the number one overall pick in this year's NFL Draft. After having the worst record in the NFL, there is much promise for the Texans, who will have one of the most feared defenses in the league with J.J. Watt, Brian Cushing and the aforementioned Jadeveon Clowney.

Even after the coaching staff named Ryan Fitzpatrick the starting quarterback, there's still plenty of intrigue around Case Keenum and rookie Tom Savage. Preseason games on the Houston Texans schedule include games against the Atlanta Falcons and San Francisco 49ers at an average price of $132.

New York Giants

The Giants will be looking to have a better season than last year when the team finished a disappointing 7-9 and third in the NFC East. After having the 28th best offence last year the Giants picked up WR Odell Beckham and RB Andre Williams in the draft along with bringing in a new offensive coordinator. Preseason games should give fans a first peek at what is expected a new look and faster paced offense. Preseason games on the NY Giants schedule include the Hall of Fame Game against Buffalo and home games against the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots at an average price of $124.45.

New England Patriots

The Patriots won the AFC East title for the 10th time in 11 years this past season but failed to get to the Super Bowl making it 10 years since they've won it all in 2004. The Patriots are looking to improve on their 12-4 season last year with the addition of Darrelle Revis and a healthy Rob Gronkowski.
