Are you ready for some football? Well, I sure hope so, because Cowboys vs. Bears is about to kick off on Thursday Night Football.

The Cowboys are sitting atop the NFC East with a record of 6-6. After the Eagles somehow lost to the Dolphins on Sunday, it’s hard to imagine a world where the Cowboys don’t manage to win that division. Still, fans aren’t terribly confident. At 7 percent, their confidence in the direction of the Cowboys is just three points better than Falcons fans’ this week.

The Bears are also at .500, but the NFC North is a much different division. Chicago hasn’t been eliminated from playoff contention yet, but they are currently staring up at the 8-4 Vikings and the 9-3 Packers. Right now, they’re two spots out of a wild card bid, right behind the 7-5 Rams. Compared to the Cowboys, though (and the Falcons), Bears fans are absolutely overflowing with confidence at 22 percent.

What does all of this mean for your Atlanta Falcons? Not a damn thing. The Falcons have been mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, so we can just enjoy this one without worrying about how it will impact the Falcons.
