Each week during season, Cleveland Browns fans vote in SB Nation Reacts to express their confidence level in the team or their thoughts on other topics.
After the team’s win over the Jaguars last week, 90% of fans are confident in the direction of the team, compared to an 57% confidence rate in the prior week. The reason kind of ties into one of our follow-up questions below, which centers around Joe Flacco. It’s amazing that we’re at this point with our fourth quarterback of the season, but deep in the weeds, there has to be concern about the mounting injuries for this team, which is continuing to chip away at the depth at key positions. 84% of Bears fans are confident in the direction of their team after they defeated the Lions this past Sunday.
We asked two other questions this week, the first of which was about whether Flacco restored faith in the Browns’ postseason chances. While 19% of fans say they never lost faith, 71% of fans are still cheering Flacco on as the guy who can rescue the season. 10% of fans remain pessimistic that the season is lost.
The other question asked whether fans think the Browns will beat the Bears this Sunday. While I’d like to say that 105% of fans think the Browns will win, there is a typo on the graphic (the second option should say 24% instead of 34%). Nonetheless, 95% of fans think that Cleveland is winning this week.
Also on a national level, fans are picking the Browns to defeat the Bears this Sunday.
