Buffalo Bills fans have no reason to lack confidence heading into Week 17

Bills fans are pretty confident.

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

For the third straight week, Buffalo Bills fans sit at 100 percent confident and who can blame them? Buffalo is on a five-game winning streak and a Hail Mary away from winning nine in a row. They clinched their first AFC East title in 25 years and could lock up the two seed in the AFC with a win on Sunday or a Pittsburgh Steelers loss.

Buffalo joins the New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 100 percent fan confidence, but the Bills are the only team to hold onto it for three straight weeks. The Tennessee Titans fell off the perfect score after their Sunday night loss in Week 16 (dropping to 56 percent) and the Baltimore Ravens slid to 94 percent after their win over the New York Giants.

At the other end of the spectrum, no teams remain in the single digits with the Philadelphia Eagles at 10 percent being the lowest number followed closely at 13 percent by fans of the Houston Texans.

In the AFC East, the Bills obviously lead followed closely by the Miami Dolphins, who have hovered in the mid-90s for the second half of the season. The New England Patriots are at the bottom of the division with their fans still around 30 percent following their Monday Night Football loss and the New York Jets are up to 33 percent confident.

National voters also picked the Bills as the second-most-likely team to win the Super Bowl after the Kansas City Chiefs.
