We’re only heading into Week 4 of the NFL season, but multiple teams, including the Miami Dolphins and San Francisco 49ers, have already established themselves as probable championship contenders.
Through the first three weeks, the Dolphins are 3-0, thanks in part to quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and their offense, who are off to a record-breaking start after putting 70 points up on the scoreboard during their win over the Denver Broncos last Sunday.
Over in San Francisco, the 49ers are also 3-0, and they are led by some of the most talented players in the NFL on both sides of the ball, including All-Pro running back Christian McCaffrey.
On Thursday, Tagovailoa and McCaffrey were among the players around the league that were named the Players of the Month for September.
