The Browns only dropped from 87% to 80% fan confidence heading into the Seahawks game.

This week’s FanPulse voting results are in, heading into Week 6 of the NFL season. If you haven’t signed up to vote each week, you can still do so here.

The Browns confidence only dropped 7 percentage points from 87% to 80% between Weeks 5 and 6, despite a lopsided 31-3 loss to the 49ers. I think that road victory over the Ravens paid off, plus the fact that San Francisco is undefeated. Fans remember that until the Browns lose a division game, they are in pretty good shape for competing for the division title.

This week’s national poll looked at who the leader in the NFL MVP race is. The leading vote-getter was the Christian McCaffrey of the Carolina Panthers, followed second by Russell Wilson of the Browns’ opponent this week, the Seahawks. With two offensive linemen out, perhaps Cleveland can put a dent in that MVP bid. Or, maybe Wilson will do what he often does, and prove exactly why he’s an MVP candidate, no matter what is going on around him.
