Buffalo Bills fan confidence down after loss to Philadelphia Eagles

You knew this drop was coming.

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

Buffalo Bills fans are less confident this week after their team’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday. That’s to be expected, but it wasn’t a huge drop off as most recognize it’s okay to have a bad game and be beaten by a talented team.

After a slight drop following the team’s narrow win over the Miami Dolphins in Week 7, fan confidence fell to 66% after Week 8, the lowest confidence rating since during the 2018 season. Just three weeks ago, Bills fans were confident at a rate of 91% but a quarter of respondents have flipped from confident to not confident in the intervening weeks.

Despite being all the way down to 66%, that’s tied for 11th-most confidence among the NFL blogs in SB Nation. Oakland Raiders fans are also at 66%. Fans of the New Orleans Saints (100%) and the San Francisco 49ers (99%) lead the pack with the Baltimore Ravens (97%) just behind.

Will beating a struggling Washington team move the needle? Will a loss crater fan confidence? It couldn’t get worse than Washington fans, who have 0% of their respondents confident in the direction of the team.
