Let’s take stock of the NFC East heading into NFL Week 6 based on SB Nation’s latest FanPulse numbers.
Washington’s confidence rating dropped from 81% last week to 69% this week. It’s worth noting that FanPulse voting started before Washington’s blowout loss to the Saints on Monday night, however, so their actual confidence number is probably lower than indicated.
Up next for Washington this week is a home game against the Panthers. Washington fans are expecting their favorite team to win by an average of two points (though again, pre-MNF voting factors in there.) Carolina fans are expecting the Panthers to win by an average of six points.
DALLAS COWBOYS (2-3)
Cowboys fans have the second lowest confidence rating among all 32 teams at just 5%. Things are not going well down in Dallas.
Up next for the Cowboys is a home game against the Jaguars. Jacksonville fans are expecting a win by an average of six points. Cowboys fans are expecting a loss by an average of five points.
Cowboys fans have determined Jason Garrett, who doesn’t call the plays or pick the players, is the biggest reason to blame for the team’s struggles.

As previously mentioned, however, Giants fans are still picking the Eagles to beat their favorite team on Thursday night. But just barely.
