SB Nation FanPulse Results (Week Eight): Now Texans Fans Think They’re Going To The Playoffs

What a transformation!

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.

Just last week, a mere 18% of Texans fans were confident in the direction of their beloved franchise. Now, fresh off a defeat of the Jaguars in Jacksonville, that number has increased to a robust...30%?

Far more amusing is how those Texans fans surveyed responded to this query:

Will your team make the NFL Playoffs?

While I’d wager most Texans fans were bullish on the team making the playoffs before the season started, those hopes were certainly dealt a harsh, if not mortal, blow when the team stumbled to an 0-3 start.

Now, though? With the team 4-3?

76% of Texans fans who participated in this week’s survey believe your 2018 Houston Texans are playoff-bound. Is that because of a new respect for how the team has battled back, or is it a case of being the prettiest girl in Oklahoma (read: AFC South)?
