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. Patriots fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.
Fans of the New England Patriots are feeling pretty good about their team as 79% are confident in the direction of the franchise, up from 59% when the Patriots lost to the Tennessee Titans. Patriots fans are more critical than fanbases of other teams- and clearly have higher expectations- with seven other fanbases more confident in their teams, including the Cleveland Browns and Indianapolis Colts.
Patriots fans also expect to defeat the Miami Dolphins in week 14 by an average of 8 points. Dolphins fans agree that New England should win, but by a lesser margin of 3 points. Average the two together and the Patriots project to win in Miami by an average of 5.5 points.
Do you think the Patriots will win by more than 5.5 points? Fewer? Will they continue their struggles in Miami and lose? Let us know in the comments!
