NFL Playoffs: Cowboys fans feeling are pretty low despite team being in first place in NFC East

Big losses cause big drops.

It’s been a rough week for Dallas Cowboys fans as the team dropped a heartbreaker of a game to the Minnesota Vikings last week.

Well, they didn’t really drop it as much as they purposely let it slip through their hands. Sunday night was one of the more frustrating losses that Cowboys fans have experienced in some time and they’re not afraid to let you know it. The latest batch of SB Nation’s FanPulse results are in and the confidence if Cowboys fans is loooooow.

What is FanPulse, you ask? SB Nation tracks how fans of all fan bases feel throughout each week of the NFL season (and at various points in the offseason) and this allows us to see where Cowboys fans have stood every week to this point in 2019. You can sign up to be part of those that FanPulse poll right here, those that are already signed up have decided, and they’ve lost just about all faith in America’s Team.

This is right around the neighborhood that has been the lowest for Cowboys fans this season, as you can imagine people were pretty down after the loss to the New York Jets. Dallas played very well against Minnesota last week, but the way the coaching staff handled several things obviously has fans feeling quite down.

Nobody really feels great, football is mean

While Cowboys fans look to be feeling pretty fickle they’re hardly alone in not being totally in love with their team. Every fan base in the NFC East has a mood reflecting the weather, and Detroit Lions fans are down after not having Matthew Stafford last week in their loss against the Chicago Bears.

The NFL is a week to week league and with Dallas visiting Detroit this week and Philadelphia hosting New England we could see very different results seven days from now. For now we’ll have to all deal with angry emotions and try to survive together.

That’s the beauty of football season.
