NFL: NFC Divisional Round-Minnesota Vikings at San Francisco 49ers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NBA. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged-in 49ers fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

When we polled San Francisco 49ers fans heading into the season about their confidence in the team’s direction, that number was among the highest in the league at 97%. After losing to the Cardinals, that number fell to 80%. I could understand the overreaction as the 49ers were touchdown favorites, but it was a divisional game, and a lot went wrong on the Niners’ end. Despite beating the Jets in Week 2, there was another dip in the confidence polls:

After losing two players to an ACL injury in three plays, and having five total players leave the Jets game with an injury, it wasn’t easy to come away with a positive outlook after Sunday’s game. Heading into Week 3, the confidence has dropped to 70%.

Which Week 2 game was the most exciting?

We didn’t get a chance to watch the Falcons/Cowboys game live, but Sunday night was a treat. Football is so much more enjoyable when there are two high-quality quarterbacks on the field. The 49ers will play both New England and Seattle in back-to-back games at the end of October and during the first week of November. San Francisco should be able to score, but can they get enough stops?

Which game are you looking forward to the most in Week 3?

The Rams/Bills game would be a fun chess match to watch. The Cowboys/Seahawks game will have plenty of points, but it’s going to be tough to top the Monday night matchup between Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson. That game should be full of fireworks.
