The Miami Dolphins now have the pressure to perform following their 70-point Week 3 explosion.
They may not repeat that performance, but their fans expect their offense to put on a show every succeeding week.
They have been dazzling in the first three weeks, though, according to a tweet by Pro Football Focus.
The accompanying graphic shows the league’s touchdown drive percentage leaders through Week 3.
The Dolphins are on top at 47.2 percent, while the Los Angeles Chargers are second at 31.3 percent.
The Buffalo Bills (30) and the Kansas City Chiefs (28.1) round up the top four.

Scoring 70 points against the Denver Broncos last week will undoubtedly drive their stats up.
That’s why they lead the league in total yards (550.3), passing yards (362), rushing yards (188.3), and points (43.3) per game through three weeks.
Those numbers prove that the Dolphins are as potent in their ground attack even if wide receiver Tyreek Hill dominates in the passing game.
Raheem Mostert and De’Von Achane combined for 31 carries for 285 yards (203 from Achane) and five touchdowns against Denver.
Opponents have had difficulties in finding ways to neutralize Mike McDaniel’s offensive scheme.
However, they will be in for a challenge in Week 4 against the Bills.
Buffalo’s defense ranks second in total yards allowed (253), third in passing yards allowed (142.3), and second in points allowed (11.7) per game after three weeks.
They might not score 70 points again, but Tua Tagovailoa has the pieces around him to maintain their unblemished record.NEXT: Reporter Notes 1 Big Advantage For Dolphins Against Bills
