The Week 5 polls are in, so let’s take a look at the results!
How confident are you in the direction of the team?
Last week: 96 percent confidence
This week, 83% of fans voted for their confidence in the direction of the Browns, a 13% decline from last week. This is exactly where the Browns were at in terms of confidence heading into Week 3; the confidence was sky high after the win over the Jets, but settled back down after another loss.
The Steelers, meanwhile, continue to plummet in fan confidence, dropping 11% from last week to be at a total of 15% confidence. Bengals fans shot up to 89% for their team, while the Ravens are at a perfect 100% confidence.
Will the Browns win or lose in Week 5?
Odds: Ravens are 3-point favorites
Dawgs By Nature FanPulse: Ravens by 1
Baltimore Beatdown FanPulse: Ravens by 10
This is the first time that Browns fans have predicted that Cleveland would come out on the losing end of a game, and it’s by one point to the Ravens at home. Baltimore fans, building on their sky-high confidence meter, are also predicting a 10-point victory.
Who is the NFL MVP after four weeks?
Where’s Myles Garrett? (Kidding)
53% of the votes went to Patrick Mahomes, and he is the guy I went with too. I mean, can he have any more of a perfect stat line through four games? He is 4-0 with 14 touchdowns, 0 interceptions, and exactly 1,200 yards passing. Not only that, but the throws he is making when you actually watch the games are electric and inspiring.
If Mahomes fades, Jared Goff and Alvin Kamara are worthy candidates to be considered. Khalil Mack has been great on the defensive side too with 5 sacks and 4 forced fumbles.
