For the second week in a row, Philadelphia Eagles fan confidence has dropped.

The team went from 99% to 97% following their comeback win over Washington in Week 1. A Week 2 loss to the Atlanta Falcons — coupled by a myriad of injuries to key players — has since dropped Eagles fan confidence down to 77% in the latest FanPulse polling. Here’s what that looks like in chart form:

As you can seen, fan confidence is at its lowest since the end of the 2018 NFL season.

It’s hard to blame Eagles fans for not feeling completely confident in the team right now. There are concerns about injuries, slow starts, the pass rush, the secondary, the left guard spot, and so on.

The Eagles will have an opportunity to quell some of those concerns with a win over Detroit this Sunday. The Lions have a 60% fan confidence rating:

Elsewhere in the NFC East, Cowboys fans are feeling really good. Their hot start really shouldn’t be a surprise given the low quality teams they’ve played (New York, Washington) and will continue to play this week (Dolphins).

Giants fan confidence dropped from 73% to 29% to 17% over the past three weeks. New York is 0-2 heading in their road game against the Buccaneers this week. Will new starting quarterback Daniel Jones inspire some confidence? Or will the rookie struggle out of the gate?

Washington has the league’s second lowest fan confidence rating at 10%. (Only the Carolina Panthers rank lower at 7%.) Dan Snyder’s team could fall to 0-3 with a loss to the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football.

Jay Gruden could easily be the first head coach to be fired this season.
