FanPulse: Browns fans remain 83% confident in direction of team, while Steelers plummet to 26% in Week 3

The Browns might not have a win, but fans are still keeping the faith on the direction the franchise is headed.

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. Browns fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

The Week 3 polls are in, so let’s take a look at the results!

How confident are you in the direction of the team?

Last week: 85 percent confidence

This week, 83% of fans voted for their confidence in the direction of the Browns, a 2% decline from last week. That isn’t too bad of a drop after a loss, and most of the issues were attributed to the kicking game, something that really doesn’t impact fans’ thoughts about the direction of the franchise. That number will plummet, though, with a home loss to the Jets.

The Steelers’ confidence meter has seen a much more drastic change -- their fans voted them at 26% this week, a decline of 37% from week to week.

Will the Browns win or lose in Week 3?

Odds: Browns are 3-point favorites

Dawgs By Nature FanPulse: Browns by 7

Gang Green Nation FanPulse: Jets by 4

Cleveland fans are pretty confident this week, predicting the team to not only cover the spread, but win by a full touchdown.

How would you fix NFL overtime?

47% of fans voted for college rules, which I would absolutely hate with a passion. I do not like scores being over-inflated, and I’d rather see teams do traditional drives down the field.

I voted for “keep it as is,” but I kind of wish there was another option to help distinguish things. I love the fact that a field goal by the first possessing team cannot end the game, but I don’t like the fact that ties still exist. I would rather the games continue until someone has won.
