Five Great Players To See Live in the NFC West

Steve Shoup

How the tables have turned. For years the NFC West was unquestionably the most pathetic division in the sport (remember that time they sent a 7-9 team to the playoffs?). Now they’re unquestionably the best. This is a division with strong talent and iconoclastic personalities—which sounds like exactly the reason you need to get out to these games in person by saving big on every NFL ticket, every day over at ScoreBig.com!

Seattle Seahawks ticket buyers love Marshawn Lynch. Affectionately known as Beast Mode for his bruising runs, this halfback once ran a touchdown that was so exciting that the cheering fans actually registered as seismic activity on nearby monitors.

On the other side of the ball for the Seattle Seahawks is cornerback Richard Sherman. Along with Darrelle Revis of the Patriots, Sherman is one of the best cornerbacks of all time, especially considering how effective he is in a league dominated by passing and passing-favorable rule changes. Sherman is also an unabashedly cocky player, entertaining fans with his loud mouth and brash proclamations as much as he does with his play.

Sometimes, greatness comes with such consistency and so little flash, it gets taken for granted. That’s kind of the case with Larry Fitzgerald. This Arizona receiver has been so good for so long that it’s almost effortless. And with the injury to starting quarterback Carson Palmer, he needs to continue that greatness now more than ever. Get your hands on some Arizona Cardinals tickets to see him for yourself.

The same can be said of San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore. When’s the last time he’s garnered the same volume of praise given out to younger and less accomplished backs? Seven seasons of 1,000 yards is an incredible output, and as league’s move more and more to pass-happy offenses, it might be a long time until we see that level of consistency again.

If you’re seeking out St. Louis Rams tickets, getting to watch defensive end Robert Quinn terrorize opposing quarterbacks is your reward. The guy is a sack machine. He had 19 in 2012, 10 in 2013, and another 6 & counting this year.
