NFL: Chicago Bears at Miami Dolphins

Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse — a survey of fans across the NFL, powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Bears fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

As expected, the FanPulse for our confidence this week went down with the Chicago Bears losing to the Miami Dolphins. They are still in first place in the NFC North at 3-2, but the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings are hot on their heels at 3-2-1. When the Bears dropped their week 1 game in Green Bay, our confidence dropped 11%. This loss to the Dolphins brought about a similar 11% loss in confidence.

Us Bears’ fans are at an 85% confidence level with a tough match-up looming against the New England Patriots on Sunday. I’d imagine a win would see that number shoot back up north of 90.

The next most confident team in the NFC North is the Minnesota Vikings, who just knocked off the Arizona Cardinals for their second consecutive win. The FanPulse has them at 75%.

The Detroit Lions, at 2-3 and fresh off their bye, have the next most confident FanPulse fans at 58%.

And even though their team is in second place in the NFC North, Green Bay Packers’ fans have the least amount of confidence in their team at a pathetic 34%.

What do you guys think about the FanPulse results this week?
