The Athletic had a piece this week on "NFL’s best and worst pocketbook values, based on fan game day costs, winning".
The average cost to take a family or group of four to an NFL game in 2021 is $568.18, which is 2.8 percent more than the 2020 season (which used pre-pandemic FCI pricing calculations). The average non-premium ticket price increased 2.5 percent this season to $107.05

A few more interesting tidbits:
The single biggest year-over-year FCI increase came from the Cleveland Browns. To take four people to a game at FirstEnergy Stadium, it costs an average of $531.49, which is almost 18 percent more than a year ago. [....]

The only other team with a double-digit FCI increase is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who upped fan costs to an averaged of $576.71, or 14.2 percent over 2020. That was mostly fueled by a 16.5 percent increase in ticket prices. [....]

The real outlier is the L.A. Chargers, Hartweg said.

“In a new market, in a gorgeous new stadium, their average ticket price is 28.9 percent less than their ‘roommates’ — the Rams,” he said. “Chargers PSLs sold for 48 percent less than the Rams for the same seats, meaning a potential difference of almost $200 million on PSLs alone. It’s becoming the ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’ in Tinseltown. [....]

Overall, NFL fan costs this season increased at a slower pace than the U.S. Consumer Price Index, which increased 5.4 percent from October 2020-September 2021, per Team Marketing Report’s analysis.

Interesting article. The days of Dollar Bill are over and it does seem that the Team does care about fan experience.
