Week 3 of the NFL season concluded with a Monday night game and there have been some shocking twists and turns early in the season.
With these developments, some teams are posting surprising records early in the season.
Some are doing well, while others are failing.
So, which three times are standing out the most with their shocking record for 2022?
3. Philadelphia Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles are heading into week four with a 3-0 record.
After an explosive first game against the Detroit Lions, the Eagles continue to dominate.
They now have wins over the Minnesota Vikings and Washington Commanders, where their defense held off both teams with ease.
In the game against the Commanders, they didn’t allow any points in the first three quarters.
They finished the match with nine sacks on Carson Wentz.

Many never saw the Eagles being able to do this.
Yet, they sit atop the NFC East and can have sole ownership of the division if the New York Giants lose to the Dallas Cowboys.
They are starting off 3-0 and it’s a shock they are doing so well early in the NFL season.
2. Las Vegas Raiders
The Las Vegas Raiders spent money and draft capital to secure the league’s best receiver, Davante Adams.
But after three games, the Raiders are one of only two NFL teams yet to win a single game.
Texans and Raiders the only winless teams in the AFC. Texans should have had 2 wins tho. https://t.co/NmxC8mOzO6

While many thought the Raiders could compete with Adams on their roster, they haven’t shown that at all.
Even with Adams on the team, the poor decisions made by quarterback Derek Carr have hurt the team.
His three interceptions against the Los Angeles Chargers cost them a chance to get a win.
The woes continued, as the Raiders blew a lead against the Arizona Cardinals, leading them to lose in overtime.
If they can’t turn this around, they will continue to shock those who thought this season could finally be the Raiders’ year.
1. Miami Dolphins
The Miami Dolphins are the team with the best record in the AFC after they defeated the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
Their win gives them a 3-0 record for the season, leaving them as the only team in the AFC that remains undefeated.
No one ever saw the Dolphins as an undefeated team going into Week 4.
Many people on Twitter want to call the Dolphins lucky.
But there’s nothing lucky about Tua Tagovailoa and the season he’s having.
Tua Tagovailoa is 2nd in the NFL in passing yards, 2nd in the NFL in passer rating, 2nd in the NFL in yards per attempt, 3rd in passing touchdowns, 4th in completion percentage and 1st in wins. #FinsUp #MiamiDolphins pic.twitter.com/LKKuDT8NQN

After three games, he’s second in passing yards, with Josh Allen coming in at first.
However, the teams he’s beating are the most shocking.
The New England Patriots, Baltimore Ravens, and Buffalo Bills are the first three teams the Dolphins have defeated.
Two of those three teams were in the playoffs last season.
Tagovailoa and the Dolphins are having a great season and people are shocked they’ve defeated so many good teams this early.
But no one on their roster has ever doubted they are bound for greatness.
The hype with Miami started with Tyreek Hill this summer and is turning into reality so far this season.
