Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse — a survey of fans across the NFL, powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Texans fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.
Three questions and three polled answers this week. Let’s get to it.
How confident are you in the direction of the team?
Last week: 89% confidence.
An ugly loss to the Patriots in Week One seems to have dramatically affected the confidence of Texans fans. Yikes.
Will the Texans win or lose in Week 2?
Odds: Texans are 1-point favorites
Battle Red Blog FanPulse: Texans by 8.
Music City Miracles FanPulse: Texans by 2.
It would appear even Titans fans foresee a loss in their squad’s home opener. An 0-2 record to begin the season is far from a lost cause, though.
Other than QB, what is most valuable to an NFL offense?
Guess we’ll find out if Martinas Rankin can be the long-term answer for the Texans at left tackle in short order. For Deshaun Watson’s sake, I sure hope so.
