The results from the latest SB Nation Reacts survey are in and Detroit Lions fans have spoken.

On Wednesday, we polled Detroit Lions fans, asking them two questions for our latest SB Nation Reacts survey:

  1. Are you confident the Lions are headed in the right direction? (weekly poll)
  2. What is the most likely outcome for the Lions at Broncos in Week 15?

With regards to the first survey question, here are the results we have seen over the first twelve weeks of the season, including this week:

After a loss to the Bears, despite being 9-4 and holding a two-game lead in the NFC North, the bandwagon is emptying...

The fans' level of confidence that the Lions are headed in the right direction plummeted to 58%, by far their lowest mark in the past calendar year. If Detroit can clean things up down the stretch, it’ll be interesting to see how this poll changes.

As far as this week’s game, just 54% of fans believe the Lions (9-4) will beat the Denver Broncos (7-6), with 43% of the fans believing it will be a close score. If you look at the betting line set by the folks over at DraftKings Sportsbook, Vegas has actually been increasing the line in the Lions' favor, opening the week at Lions -3, with that now expanded to Liosn -4.5. It’s curious to see the betting line move in the opposite direction of the fan sentiment.
