Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse, a survey of fans across the NFL powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Eagles fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

The No. 6 seed Philadelphia Eagles are the biggest underdogs heading into Wild Card weekends. The NFL odds indicate as much; the Chicago Bears are favored to beat the Eagles by 6.5 points on Sunday.

SB Nation’s latest national FanPulse results also reveal NFL fans don’t believe in the reigning Super Bowl champions.

The Eagles are quite fine with people doubting them. Underdogs, baby.

Here’s a look at how NFL fans voted on the other Wild Card games. Notice the Eagles are the only road team not favored this week. The Cowboys are the second biggest underdogs ... and they only have a 65% confidence rating per Blogging The Boy’s polling.

You won’t be surprised to hear that Philly fans are feeling much more confident in their team compared to the national audience. The Eagles’ confidence rating is back up to 83% despite once being as low as 11% after losing to the Saints in Week 11.

Here’s how the Eagles’ final 2018 regular season fan confidence graph turned out. Lots of ups and downs!

We got some real good responses to our GIF question, by the way. Starting with my personal favorite:

Over in Chicago, meanwhile, Bears fans are feeling very confident ... as they have all season long. Windy City Gridiron’s confidence rating is at 97%. Only the Saints (100%) and Colts (98%) rank higher.

It sure does seem like Bears fans are sleeping on the reigning Super Bowl champs. We’ll see how that turns out for them.

On a different note, here’s a look at how FanPulse determined end of season awards. The coach the Eagles will face on Sunday was voted as Coach of the Year. Everyone on this list except for Anthony Lynn was actually on the Eagles’ coaching staff at some point.

No love for Fletcher Cox when it came to Defensive Player of the Year.

Pat Mahomes is the correct choice for NFL MVP.

Baker Mayfield should’ve been voted Rookie of the Year. Saquon Barkley is great but Mayfield had a much bigger impact when it came to actually helping his team win.
