Eagles fan confidence checks in at fourth lowest in the NFL

Can you blame them?

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles have some of the NFL’s least confident fans heading into Week 3. That’s what the latest data from SB Nation Reacts shows:

The Eagles dropped from 80% to 24% after losing in Week 1. Their latest loss to the Los Angeles Rams has them down to 11%. Only three teams rank lower:

It’s hard to feel good about the Eagles right now. Carson Wentz is really struggling. The defense might not be able to stop me from scoring. Things are looking bad.

The Eagles have an opportunity to win some confidence back by beating the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Conversely, they might join the Texans at 0% if they lose.


Like the Eagles, the Bengals are 0-2. Unlike the Eagles, the Bengals are inspiring confidence in their fans.

Expectations are obviously lower in Cincy than they are in Philly. Bengals fans are simply encouraged by what they’ve seen out of Joe Burrow thus far and for good reason. The No. 1 overall pick has a bright future ahead of him and he might be able to pick up his first career win against the Eagles.


Elsewhere in the NFC East, the 0-2 New York Giants (!) actually boast the most confident fans in the division. This despite the Giants starting two straight losses for the fourth season in a fourth and seventh time in eight years. Not to mention losing Saquon Barkley for the year due to an ACL tear. We’ll see how things go if they lose to an incredibly injured San Francisco 49ers team this weekend.

The Washington Football Team, still first in the division standings, checks in at second place despite losing to the Arizona Cardinals. It’ll be interesting to see how Ron Rivera’s squad fares against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Credit to Dallas Cowboys fans for being honest for once. They know they were lucky to escape that Atlanta Falcons game with a win. Big test ahead as they face Russell Wilson’s Seattle Seahawks.
