Buffalo Bills fans are shaken following consecutive AFC losses

Fan confidence has taken a hit.

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

The Buffalo Bills have lost two straight games to AFC opponents they’ll eventually have to beat if they want to get to the Super Bowl in 2020. With that in mind, fan confidence has been shaken—not cratered—as fans react to the team’s tumble from 4-0 to 4-2.

Because the game against the Tennessee Titans wasn’t until Tuesday night, the results from last week were a little skewed. Many fans voted before the Bills lost to the Titans, and Buffalo was still at 97% confident heading into their game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Then the Bills were thoroughly beaten in another national game and, in fan voting, Bills fans are now only 71% confident in the direction of the team. It’s the lowest confidence level for Bills fans since last season when they lost to the Cleveland Browns.

Buffalo is actually second in the AFC East as the Miami Dolphins moved into the 90s after their win over the San Francisco 49ers. New England Patriots fans are in the 50s, while fans of the New York Jets are down to just 6% fan confidence.
