PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

Eagles fans are feeling a lot better about the reigning Super Bowl champions following Philadelphia’s decisive 34-13 win over the New York Giants last Thursday. The Eagles saw the biggest boot in fan confidence this week with a 39% increase.

Fan confidence will remain high if the Eagles manage to beat the Panthers this weekend. For what it’s worth, both sides are expecting an Eagles win. Bleeding Green Nation’s FanPulse results show fans believe the Eagles will win by an average of seven points. Cat Scratch Reader’s FanPulse results show Panthers fans expect Carolina to lose by an average of three points.

This graph kinda reminds me of The Big Dipper.

WASHINGTON REDSKINS

Despite beating the Panthers in Week 6, Washington’s fan confidence took a hit. Part of that can be explained by Washington’s previous FanPulse results not fully accounting for their Monday night blowout loss to the Saints.

Washington fans are expecting a six-point win over the Cowboys on Sunday. Washington hasn’t won a home game against Dallas since 2012.

BLOGGING THE BOYS

As expected, the Cowboys saw a boost in fan confidence after blowing out the Jaguars by a final score of 40 to 7. Heading into last week, Dallas fans were expecting to lose that game by an average of five points.

This week, Cowboys fans project their favorite team to beat Washington by an average of three points.

NEW YORK GIANTS

Giants fans know their favorite team’s season is now essentially over with New York dropping to 1-5. Fan confidence ranks at a mere 9%.

Giants fans are expecting an eight-point loss to the Falcons in Atlanta this weekend. Falcons fans are expecting a six-point win.
