The problem is you have to pay full price for two preseason games, and those tend to resell for way below face value (like 25% or less). That alone might make it hard to break even. Any markup you make on the remaining regular season games you don't attend is subject more to the opponent than anything else... the Green Bay game this year was worth a lot, while the Arizona & St. Louis games will probably be worth just face, if that. Plus when you're in your first year you won't get the most desirable seats, which further hurts the street value.
If you can only go to one or two, you're probably better off sticking with trying to buy single game tickets when they go on sale, or hitting the resale market and budgeting some time to do a lot of research & comparison shopping. Or, possibly waiting to see if the team offers a partial season package; they've done that in the past. The few remainders would be easier to resell.
