Fans Pick The Seattle Seahawks to Win Super Bowl XLIX; Dallas Cowboys to Finish Last

Prime Visibility Conducts "Fan Confidence" Social Media Survey to Predict the Outcome of the 2014-2015 NFL Season

MELVILLE, N.Y., Aug. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2014-2015 NFL Season is off to a roaring start and fans are using social media to talk about their favorite teams as they eagerly await Kick-Off Weekend. Prime Visibility, a digital marketing agency, ranked 32 NFL teams by "fan confidence," analyzing sentiment based on approximately 20 million Social Media mentions across Twitter, Facebook, and thousands of sports forum communities like footballsfuture.com, ESPN, Pro Sports Daily, among others.

The Findings

  • While there were fluctuations in sentiment across all teams, no team's fan confidence is below 50%. Every team has a more positive outlook than negative outlook according to Social Media mentions.
  • The Seattle Seahawks have the highest percentage of positive sentiment. Last year's Super Bowl champions are expected to potentially repeat this year, according to fans.
  • The San Diego Chargers' unexpected playoff berth last year has carried over to this year when looking at sentiment. While many experts think the Chargers won't make the playoffs again, fans seem to think differently, ranking them second to Seattle.
  • After underperforming the past few years, Cowboys fans seem to expect the worst going for 2014. "America's Team" was 8-8 last year and the Cowboys are worse when compared to last year (weaker defense).

The findings, which include Team Rank as well as "Final Mock" Standings by division, can be found below.
