FanPulse

For the first 12 weeks of the season, Patriots fans were consistently among the most confident in all of football. Between opening day and their 13-9 win against the Dallas Cowboys, the fan confidence meter as measured by SB Nation’s FanPulse survey never dropped below 82%. Last week’s loss against the Houston Texans, however, had a big impact on the fan base’s optimism as the number dropped by 49 percentage points.

Before the 28-22 defeat in Houston, the Patriots ranked third in the league with an approval rating of 91%. This week, however, the team has plummeted all the way down to the 17th spot — clearly behind the other five teams currently in the AFC’s playoff picture. That picture, of course, now has the Baltimore Ravens on top which adds insult to the injury that was New England’s loss against the Texans.

Kansas City, meanwhile, ranks sixth in the league in fan confidence. After entering Week 13 with a 75% confidence score among its fans, the team’s blowout victory against the Oakland Raiders pushed the number up to 82% — its highest since Week 10 and quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ return from a knee injury that cost him the previous two games. Of course, the Chiefs lost that game and the fan confidence fell to a mere 45% afterwards. The Patriots certainly hope for a similar development this week.
