The Week 7 polls are in, so let’s look at the results to see how optimistic Browns fans are getting!
How confident are you in the direction of the team?
Last week: 96 percent confidence
This week, 80% of fans voted for their confidence in the direction of the Browns, a 16% decline from last week. This is the lowest confidence rating the team has had all season, and it is no surprise that it comes after the only game they weren’t competitive in all year. Cleveland has yet to lose back-to-back games, so this week’s road game against the Buccaneers will be a big one with respect to the confidence meter.
Believe it or not, the Browns’ 80% confidence mark is still the highest in the AFC North. The Ravens jumped back up to 77% this week, but the Bengals dropped down to 64% confidence, while the Steelers are at 59% confidence.
Will the Browns win or lose in Week 7?
Odds: Buccaneers are 3-point favorites
Dawgs By Nature FanPulse: Browns by 3
Bucs Nation FanPulse: Buccaneers by 4
Buccaneers fans only have 22% confidence in the team, though, and they just fired their defensive coordinator.
