6. Miami Dolphins (3-0)
The Dolphins are easily the most surprising team of this young NFL season. They went out and beat a very good Falcons team as time expired, and show why the AFC East is arguably the best division in football right now. Ryan Tannehill continues to make great strides at quarterback, as he threw for 236 yards and two touchdowns, which included the game winner. This offense continues to show great promise with the likes of Tannehill, Lamar Miller, and Mike Wallace. I would personally like to see Miller get more rushes, because he’s such an explosive running back, and could really give this team another dynamic to work with. He’s also on my fantasy team, but that has very little to do with anything… Moving on, the defense has also shown some great promise, doing a very commendable job against the high flying passing attack of the Falcons, led by Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. However they did suffer a bit of a blow, when Cameron Wake went down with an injury, that will force him to miss a few weeks. This team has been a great surprise, and are headlining a group of young teams that will continue to shock teams all season long.
