NFL: Chicago Bears at Arizona Cardinals Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

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.

When we last checked in on this week’s FanPulse results, we learned that our Chicago Bears’ fanbase still felt pretty good about the direction that our beloved Bears were heading with an 84% approval rating. These same fans were asked if they thought the Bears were making the playoffs in 2018, and they went Yes to the tune of 57%.

I stuck with my preseason prediction and voted no... and yes, I hope I’m wrong.

The Bears definitely have a couple winnable games coming up on the schedule, so if they can end the first half at 5-3, I’d like their chances even more. My season prediction was 10-6 but third in the NFC North. That tie from the Packers and Vikings might come into play, but this was always going to be a tough division for the Bears to win.

Speaking of the NFC North, here’s how the other FanPulse results came in when their fans were asked if they were making the postseason.

Minnesota Vikings - 100%

Detroit Lions - 66%

Green Bay Packers - 55%

I wonder if Packer fans are starting to feel their team slipping with their quarterback hobbled a little this season.

This Sunday the Chicago Bears host the New York Jets, and Bears’ fans are predicting a 9 point Chicago victory, while Jets’ FanPulse fans are predicting a 4 point Bears win.

Let’s see what our WCG readers think about with this week’s survey question.
