The sixteenth week of SB Nation Reacts voting is in, heading into Week 16 of the NFL season. If you haven’t signed up to vote each week, you can do so here.
The week-to-week confidence meter among Browns fans decreased by 1 percentage point, falling from 95% to 94% after last week’s victory over the New York Giants. I think fans are itching for the team to lock up a playoff spot officially and remove that anxiety of missing out after such a great season.
Cleveland’s opponent this week, the New York Jets, is at 30% with their confidence. That is the highest it’s been since Week 1, but 70% of fans separately voted that they were not happy that the Jets beat the Rams. By doing so, the Jaguars moved ahead of them for the No. 1 pick.
There were several national polls this week, but let’s touch on the ones that include the Cleveland Browns, starting with the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award. Myles Garrett is still a contender, but he has understandably faded a bit after missing games and having less productivity since getting COVID-19. The other one is more intriguing, as Kevin Stefanski is a top contender for Coach of the Year. Brian Flores earned 30% of the vote from fans for his work with the Miami Dolphins, with Stefanski in second place at 23%.
