The Philadelphia Eagles are 5-4 after winning their second game in a row this past Sunday. Despite beating the Chicago Bears, however, Eagles fan confidence actually dropped from 54% to 46%. Here’s what that looks like:
The DeSean Jackson injury has clearly put a damper on the Eagles’ outlook. It’s hard to feel amazing about this team moving forward given their incredibly uninspiring wide receiver situation, among other issues.
Given their relatively easy schedule down the stretch, though, there’s reason to believe the Eagles can still make the playoffs and even win the NFC East. This week’s national FanPulse question shows that NFL fans believe the Eagles are only slightly behind the Dallas Cowboys.
Speaking of the devil, Cowboys fans also saw a decrease this week despite the fact they advanced to 5-3 with a win on Monday Night Football. Dallas will see a rebound if they’re able to beat the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday Night Football.
The New York Giants’ delusional fan base saw an increase in confidence rating for some reason. Odd for a 2-7 team.
Washington saw an increase this week! They went up to 1% after being at 0% last week. Washington has been in the single digits since Week 4.
An early look ahead of the Eagles’ Week 11 opponent shows that New England Patriots fans are still among the league’s most confident despite coming off a Week 9 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. The Patriots dropped from 90% to 84%, which is the fifth highest rating.
Elsewhere of interest, Jacksonville Jaguars fans aren’t feeling so great despite the fact that Nick Foles is back. Some wanted the team to stick with Gardner Minshew at quarterback. The Jags are on their bye this week but Foles will return to the field in Week 11. We’ll see if BDN can lead them to an AFC South title.
