The Miami Dolphins sit at 3-0 and not only are they in first place in the AFC East, they are also the only remaining undefeated AFC team. They have a tough task ahead of them on Thursday when they take on the Cincinnati Bengals. It’s a short week, they have to travel, and we still aren’t sure if Tua Tagovailoa will play or not. With an undefeated record, the Dolphins now sit near the top of many of the weekly power rankings. I cannot remember a time when the Dolphins were considered the top team in the NFL. Hopefully they keep up the momentum, because this season has been magical so far and it’s only the end of September.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
