This week hasn’t been your typical week leading up to a Philadelphia Eagles versus Dallas Cowboys game. Despite the fact these two teams will be playing for first place in the NFC East, fans from both sides aren’t feeling so hot heading into Sunday night.
The Eagles’ fan confidence rating checks in at a season-low 34%. That’s a 55% drop from last week. Only nine teams finished worse off than the Birds.
The Cowboys are one of the teams lower than the Eagles. Their fan confidence rating is a mere 9% (!) following three straight losses. Only four teams finished with a lower rating.
The winner of this week’s game should see a significant rebound while the loser falls even further. It’s a great opportunity for the Eagles to potentially to bury the Cowboys and their reeling fan base.
Probably don’t wanna mess it up!
Elsewhere in the NFC East, it’s New York Giants fans who are actually most confident in the division. Yes, you read that correctly. The 2-4 Giants check in with the 13th most confident fan base at 66%.
Giants fans must feel encouraged that they’re only one game back in the NFC East with the Eagles and Cowboys both struggling. Giants fans also seem hopeful about Daniel Jones, despite the fact he has three times as many turnovers as touchdown passes this season.
Washington fans, meanwhile, are understandably down in the dumps.
This week’s national FanPulse question takes the temperature on the Coach of the Year award. Kyle Shanahan’s the obvious pick with the 49ers being undefeated so far. Lol at Pat Shurmur even being included, let alone getting votes!
