Ranking the 7 NFL teams with 3-0 records .
Twenty-five teams already have at least one loss. Where does that leave the remaining 7 undefeated teams thus far in 2019?The Niners were 17-47 in their previous 4 seasons. So, 3-0 borders on stunning … until you realize their opponents in 2019 have a collective 1-8 record. They catch a bye week to enjoy this high mark. However, when they return to action the next couple games are the Browns in SF and at the Rams. Cleveland may be 1-2 but it certainly isn't Tampa Bay, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh (without Ben Roethlisberger).
