Vikings’ fans confidence soaring...

New, comments

...it would be a shame if something happened this Sunday.

Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse — a survey of fans across the NFL. Throughout the offseason, we send 32 polls to plugged in fans from each team. Bears fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

The latest Chicago Bears FanPulse was voted on before the Monday Night win in Washington, so the results could be a little off. I’m not sure if it would have made that big a difference, but a 31-15 win usually does a little more for fan confidence than eking out a 16-14 win in Denver which is the last game our fanbase had in their minds when the survey was sent out on Monday morning.

Anyway, here’s how our FanPulse looked this week.

We were up a wee bit from 57% to 59%, but I have a feeling that a win this Sunday will bring about a drastic Big Dipper like surge in our confidence.

And a win on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings would likely see their FanPulse plummet after a 20% increase after beating Oakland in week 3.

They’re currently at 65%, but I’m predicting a drop after week 4.

By now we all know the record that Minny QB Kirk Cousins has when playing teams with a winning record (5-26), and we know about his propensity to turn the ball over (in 81 career games he has thrown 67 interceptions and fumbled 50 times), so what could go wrong when he faces the most ferocious defense in the NFL on Sunday?

I’d imagine that Khalil Mack would like to stop by to say hi.

And that Eddie Jackson would be waiting for a gift or two from Mr. You Like That.

Detroit Lions’ fans are also riding high with their teams 2-0-1 start with a 75% confidence level, but they host the 3-0 Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. A loss and the most reactionary fanbase in the FanPulse will likely shoot way down.

But for now at least, they get to enjoy sole possession of first place in the NFC North because...

And finally, that brings us to the Green Bay Packers who lost to the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night football because of an Aaron Rodgers red zone pick.

What are your thoughts on the FanPulse results this week?
