Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse — a survey of fans across the NFL. Throughout the offseason, we send 32 polls to plugged in fans from each team. Los Angeles Rams fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.
Combined with some hectic ish on my side along with a bye week, I completely forgot to post last week’s FanPulse results. But this week, we’re on it folks.
While the three-game losing streak obviously sent Rams fans into a tizzy, the two wins from struggling opponents has fans feeling comfortable coming out of the bye week:
70% of Rams fans responded that they were confident about the team coming out of the bye. The 25% mark on the heels of the Week 6 loss to the San Francisco 49ers seems like ages ago. Obviously, we’re going to have to see how this team responds to the challenge of the second half with some difficult games on the schedule, but FanPulse will be tracking things every week. Expect emotion.
Speaking of, we had a couple of national questions this week.
I think we all know which team with a winning record aint really about it:
The Buffalo Bills are 6-2 with their wins coming against opponents who are a combined 8-39. Of the five teams with the worst record, the Bills have played four of them. It’s nice work if you can get it.
Meanwhile, we’ve got some teams who are struggling, and their fan bases could use some love. Which is in need of a hug the most?
A bit surprised to see the Miami Dolphins not getting more votes here. Really though, all this did was make me more confused as to how the Dallas Cowboys lost to the New York Jets. The NFL is weird sometimes.
Speaking of Dallas, we got a real fight atop the NFC East. The Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles are both five-win teams heading into Week 10. Who’s the better of the two?
The football will sort this out so fret not.
Thanks as always for those of you who voted, and those who didn’t please sign up so we can hear from you!
