Detroit Lions cut Packers fans’ confidence in half with Week 5 win

Packers fans are having a sad.

NFL: Green Bay Packers at Washington Redskins Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

It used to mean that losing to the Detroit Lions was one of the worst things an NFL franchise could do. Those days are long behind us, but after Detroit’s slow start to the 2018 season, it still probably doesn’t feel very good to lose to the Lions right now, especially if they’re a division rival.

Well, Green Bay Packers fans woke up Monday morning with that realization, and boy does it look like it hurt. According to Acme Packing Company’s FanPulse survey, fans confidence was cut exactly in half after their 23-31 loss to Detroit. Check out it out:

This is what it sounds like, when Pack cry.

Green Bay fans now have the lowest confidence in the entire division after entering the year with the highest, at 98 percent. Here’s what it looks like in the division after five weeks of football.

Bears: 96%
Vikings: 70%
Lions: 52%
Packers: 30%

As for the Lions, it should come as no surprise that they saw a big boost after defeating Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. Entering the week with just 35 percent confidence after a last-second loss to the Cowboys, Detroit jumped up to 52 percent. As you can see, it’s been a pretty wild first month of the season:

Hey, look, we made a W. We’re going to go ahead and count that, so the Lions are now 3-3. Fight me, Goodell.
