Kansas City Chiefs v Detroit Lions

Many of you here at Arrowhead Pride began voting on various things concerning the Kansas City Chiefs and matters across the NFL last year and this past offseason. This is part of SB Nation’s FanPulse tool, which sends weekly questions to the city’s most plugged-in and dedicated Chiefs fans via email.

If you are interested in joining the Chiefs’ FanPulse, please sign up here.

Let’s see what has happened to fan base confidence following Week 4:

  • Following the Chiefs’ Week 1 win against the Jaguars, 95 percent of Chiefs fans felt confident in the direction of the team, a slight fall from the previous week.
  • Chiefs fans’ confidence is back up to 98 percent following the 28-10 win against the Oakland Raiders in Week 2.
  • Chiefs fans’ confidence remained right 98 percent following the team’s 33-28 win against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 3. Fan confidence dipped to a season-low 94 percent after the close call this past week against the Detroit Lions.

Now let’s check in on the Sunday Night Football matchup:

  • Colts fans’ season-low is much lower than that of the Chiefs. Only 52 percent of Colts fans are confident in the direction of the team after they dropped last game 31-24 to the Oakland Raiders. That’s a 42 percent difference between the two teams heading into Sunday Night Football.

This week’s national question asked which replacement quarterback (of the four) you would prefer.

  • Giants quarterback Daniel Jones just edged out Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew. Some would take Saints quarterback Teddy Bridgewater while nobody is all that interested in Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph.
