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. Vikings fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

We didn’t get an opportunity to share the results of last week’s FanPulse poll, due to numerous reasons that I won’t get into here. But, we do have the results of this week’s poll, and fans of the purple do seem to be pretty happy about the way that things are going for the Minnesota Vikings.

Let’s take a look at the results of this week’s poll, shall we?

How confident are you in the direction of the team?

Last week: 97 percent confidence

Last week, 97% of Vikings fans were confident in the direction of our favorite football team. You wouldn’t think that it could get any higher, but what do you know. . .that’s exactly what happened.

(The 2% of you that aren’t on board yet. . .I’m curious as to what needs to happen.)

Will the Vikings win or lose in Week 2?

Odds: Push

We’ve all been following the Aaron Rodgers drama ever since the Sunday night game finished, and we still don’t know whether or not he’s going to play. However, I’m not sure if the Vikings lose this game regardless of whether he plays or not. Obviously him being on the bench would greatly enhance Minnesota’s chances, but this is a game that the Vikings could very well win in any event.

Other than QB, what is most valuable to an NFL offense?

I think this one is a pretty obvious answer. We saw in 2016 what an offense can look like when they can’t protect their quarterback properly, and it looks like the majority of our fans agree. Riley Reiff put together a pretty solid game against San Francisco last week. . .here’s hoping that continues.

We will continue to bring you the results of these surveys each week, and if you’d like to be a part of the survey, hit the link up above to make sure that you get to vote each week on questions relating to your Minnesota Vikings!
