On the back of the Rams’ 28-12 win over the Seattle Seahawks, fan confidence skyrocketed to 81%, the seventh-highest rate in the NFL and the highest level of confidence for Rams fans since the Rams were 3-1.
It’s easy to understand why. The Rams have won three of their last four and looked quite capable the last two weeks.
A quick point of order if I may. I mentioned Rams fans have the seventh-highest confidence at 81%. Only one other team clocks in at the 80% threshold: the 5-8 Denver Broncos whose fans are enjoying the beginning of the Drew Lock era. Just eight teams over 80%. The number of teams over 80% when the preseason started?
The Cycle hypes up every fan base every year to ridiculous levels only to see nearly every fan base crash into the reality of the season and the losses that come along the way.
Heading into Week 1, only three teams had fan bases that came in under 50% confidence levels. Now?
Question 1, who’s picking first?
The Cincinnati Bengals picked up their first win of the year two weeks ago over the New York Jets. At 1-12, they’re the only one-win team right now, but the 2-11 New York Giants are right there. Those other two, the Miami Dolphins and Washington Ten-Game Losers, are 3-10.
The second question is who they’re in the fight for:
I’m working on a Burrow piece so I’ll save my thoughts for it later, but he’s certainly been the most productive player in college football this year setting the SEC records for passing yards and passing touchdowns.
He was also the star of the best movie this year:
