The best seat location involves a lot of personal preference. There are a lot of trade offs between price, distance from the field, viewing angle, exposure to elements, and ease of entry/exit. Here’s the seat map (including some pricing information). You should note that sections 225 and 238 are Non-Alcohol Sections. If you plan on drinking, don’t get tickets there or you will have to drink only in the concourse and not at your seats.
Ticket prices vary based on location in the stadium (obviously), and starting in the 2014 season, by opponent. For this season (2016), the base price games are the Texans, Bills, Rams, Ravens, and Jeys. The “Marquee” games of the Dolphins and Bengals are about 25-35% more than those, and the “Elite” game of the Seahawks is 45-55% above the base price. The following chart lists some of the benefits of each location. Keep in mind that the east side of the stadium (Patriots sideline) will have more sun than the west side (visitor sideline).
|Seat Location||Price||Distance||Viewing Angle||Elements||Access|
|Upper corner||Lowest||Far||Fair, overhead||Exposed to overhead and wind||Longest walk to exits|
|Upper sideline||Low||Far||Good,overhead||Exposed to overhead and wind||Longest walk to exits|
|Upper midfield||Medium-Low||Far||Great,overhead||Exposed to overhead and wind||Longest walk to exits|
|Mezzanine Corner||Medium||Medium||Good, overhead||Most seats exposed to overhead, partially protected from wind||Easy walk to exits|
|Club section||Highest ++||Medium||Great, overhead||Partially exposed, access to protected concourse with windows||Private access from private lots|
|Lower corner/endzone||Medium-High||Close||Poor (great for 1/3 of field)||Exposed to overhead||Easy walk to exits|
|Lower sideline||High||Close||Good||Exposed to overhead||Easy walk to exits|
|Lower midfield||Higher||Close||Great||Exposed to overhead||Medium walk to exits|
Handicap Accessible Seating: The stadium does sell handicap accessible tickets but they sell out quickly (like all tickets). What many people don’t know is that you can buy regular tickets and exchange them for handicap accessible seating at the ticket office on the day of the game. These seats are located between the 200/300 levels. The ticket office will try and accommodate everyone in the party but they only guarantee a spot for the person who is handicapped and one guest. If for some reason someone in the party can not get a seat the way that the seating is set up makes standing room in the area available and convenient.
