Want to buy tickets for the Patriots’ game against the Browns? Easy, just head over to Stubhub.
The New England Patriots remain undefeated heading into a matchup that was one of the NFL’s most anticipated before this season. It still is somewhat, but has lost a lot of its hype due to the Cleveland Browns’ inconsistent start. That being said, the Week 8 clash between Bill Belichick’s current team and his former employer still offers plenty of intrigue — and two of the more talented teams in the entire league.
With all that in mind, let’s find out how to actually follow the contest:

Entering Week 8, the Patriots’ fan base is still among the most confident in the NFL: 92% of participants in SB Nation’s FanPulse survey have a positive attitude about the direction in which the team was headed. The confidence score went up three percentage points compared to the previous week, and with New England soundly defeating the New York Jets on Monday with a score of 33-0. The team now ranks fourth in the NFL.
The New Orleans Saints, who are 6-1 despite playing without Drew Brees since Week 2, lead the list with the rare 100% approval rating, followed by a tie of teams getting a 96% score on the confidence meter: the San Francisco 49ers and the Indianapolis Colts. The Patriots follow in third place and with the same score as a Baltimore Ravens team that made a 30% jump in confidence from 62% up to 92% heading into this week’s games.
The Browns, meanwhile, remain on a rollercoaster that started off with a 99% approval rating before Week 1 and reached just 43% heading into Week 8. During the bye week, the fan bases confidence rebounded a bit again and now sits at 58% — not necessarily an overwhelmingly positive number, but an improvement and good enough for the 13th best confidence score in the league.
