The Green Bay Packers have won two straight games and are in the driver’s seat to get a opening round bye, while the Chicago Bears have won three in a row and are finally resembling the team many of us assumed they’d be in 2019.
Yet the FanPulse confidence index of each team is trending in opposite directions.
The Bears have managed to fight their way out of a 3-5 hole to make December matter and our fans are finally starting to feel good about the direction the franchise is heading. We’re up to a 44% confidence level which is good for 16th highest among all the NFL’s FanPulse voters.
The Packers are 10-3, they’re leading the division, and they’re quarterbacked by one of the best to ever play the game, but they’ve struggled in consecutive weeks against two of the worst teams in the NFL. Their fans expect more from them, so their FanPulse is down to 47%, which is only one spot better than Chicago’s (15th).
I think it’s safe to say the FanPulse will shoot upwards for whichever team wins this rivalry game on Sunday afternoon.
