Last week, the Eagles were voted as the team with worst chance to win on Wild Card weekend. The underdog Eagles overcame the odds once again, however, and beat the Bears in Chicago.
Now the Eagles are getting a little more respect heading into the Divisional Round of the 2019 NFL Playoffs. SB Nation’s latest national FanPulse results show the Eagles are viewed as the fifth most dangerous team remaining in the playoffs.
The Eagles’ opponent, meanwhile, has been named THE most dangerous team.
Not hard to see why the Saints would be No. 1 considering their stellar track record at home.
If the Eagles can manage the upset, it’ll be interesting to see if they are finally considered the most dangerous team. I don’t see how they couldn’t be considered at that point.
When it comes to the possibility of an upset, Eagles fans seem to be feeling fairly confident heading into this game. BGN’s confidence rating increased from 83% to 87% following the win in Chicago. 87% is the highest mark the Eagles have been at since following their Week 6 win over the Giants.
On the other side, Saints fans are still feeling pretty good ... but they did see a little decrease coming out of their first-round bye. Heading into the playoffs, Canal Street Chronicles’ confidence rating was at 100%. It’s now down to 96%. Again, still very high, but it seems like at least a little doubt has creeped into the minds of some Saints fans.
