PHOENIX -- The Arizona Cardinals are 9-1, and as people climb on the bandwagon, the price to ride is flying high for Cards tickets.

According to ticket reseller TiqIQ.com, the average seat at University of Phoenix Stadium right now goes for $162, the 15th most expensive in the NFL and still on the rise.

“They've priced the average person right out of it. You just can't go to the game anymore unless you have money or somebody buys you the tickets,” said Jim Henninger, a Cardinals fan who says he used to hold season tickets.

TiqIQ.com says the most expensive home game on the schedule this year is the Dec. 21 tilt with the Seattle Seahawks. The average price for that game, so far, is $270.

In case you're wondering, the most expensive ticket in the NFL right now is for Seattle’s CenturyLink Field, averaging $399. The least expensive is the St. Louis Rams at $87.
