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.
Another week in the NFL and another win by our beloved 10-4 Chicago Bears. Our fans have been riding high all season long too with our confidence results, currently at 97%. Sure we saw a little dip after the Bears lost each of their four games this year, but overall we’ve stayed confident in the direction of our Bears.
This week, the only fanbase that is trending higher than ours are fans of the 12-2 New Orleans Saints,and they are at an understandable 100%. Cleveland Browns’ fans are also at a 97% confidence level, but who can blame them. They have an exciting young team to root for as well.
When looking over the confidence level of our NFC North rivals, I can definitely see why Packers’ fans are down in the dumps. Losing to the Bears dropped their percentage 18 points, down to 27%.
I can understand why the #Packers #FanPulse results took another dip.— Windy City Gridiron (@WCGridiron) December 20, 2018
They were kind of "backed" into a corner with their choice this week after watching their team lose to the #Bears. pic.twitter.com/AGFBuw4Wvt
And I can also understand why the confidence levels from Lions’ fans have been dipping too. Their latest loss, a 14-13 squeeker to the Buffalo Bills, has them at 23%.
It's been a rough season for #Lions fans and their #FanPulse confidence level took another dip this week.— Windy City Gridiron (@WCGridiron) December 20, 2018
It might have something to do with one of those QBs pictured being a Pro Bowl alternate while the other is not. Here's a hint: The #Bears QB has a higher passer rating & QBR pic.twitter.com/ogUm0dpw2Y
But Vikings’ fans are happy that their team is still alive for a playoff spot, and with as much talent that they have, I can understand them being hopeful. Their fans are up to 54% this week and they travel to Detroit for their next game before hosting the Bears in what could be a win-and-they-get-in the playoffs game.

With the Bears heading out to California to take on the 49ers, both our fanbases were asked to predict the point spread in that game. Bears’ fans went big and are guessing it’ll be a 10 point win by the NFC North Champs, while ‘Niner fans saw their results glitch out leaving us to wonder how they view Sunday’s contest.
We had one more Fan Pulse result this week to share. We were asked about the most surprising storyline in the NFL this season and here’s how all 32 fanbases voted.
