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. Bucs fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

In sports, when a team wins and wins often, the support usually follows. That seems to be the case with the Buccaneers.

After defeating the defending Super Bowl champions third place NFC East Philadelphia Eagles last week, Tampa Bay fans are as confident as ever. And it shows in the Week 3 FanPulse survey results.

Heading into this week’s Monday Night Football matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the confidence rating has gone up each week since beating the division rival New Orleans Saints in Week 1. You can see the rise in the graph below.

The confidence rating heading into the season was a strong 86-percent. After that, it went up to 87-percent before the game against the Eagles and it is now at 95-percent.

As for who will win the game, Bucs fans feel Tampa Bay will win by six points while Steelers fans feel Pittsburgh will win by three.
