This week’s FanPulse voting results are in, heading into Week 14 of the NFL season. If you haven’t signed up to vote each week, you can still do so here.

The Browns confidence dropped 43 percentage points from 61% to 28% between Weeks 13 and 14. All of the weeks of rising confidence was negated with the loss to Pittsburgh; if I had another question to ask Browns fans, it would be if their decision (regarding confidence) was based more on the loss to Pittsburgh, or being taken out of the wildcard picture.

There were three national polls. The first one asked whether the Bills will overtake the Patriots to win the AFC East. Buffalo would have to overtake New England by two games for that to happen, and that’s not going to happen.

The next question asked if the Ravens are the best team in the NFL right now. With them being in the division and seeing how the Browns beat them, I know they aren’t unbeatable. And with the way they’ve been getting cockier, I know that when they fall, they are going to fall hard. But I can’t deny the fact that they’ve beaten the Seahawks, Patriots, Texans, Rams, and 49ers, many of them pretty easily. So right now, they are the best — but I still like the 49ers in a re-match, and maybe the Saints.

The last national question asked who will win the NFC East. Note: this question was asked prior to the Cowboys losing on Thursday Night Football. No matter what, though, they are still guaranteed to be leading the NFC East heading into Week 15, and have not lost in the division yet. They are still the favorites to win the division in my opinion.
