Members of the 1972 Miami Dolphins might have a tough decision to make.
Will they really continue their annual tradition of popping champagne after the last remaining undefeated team loses if the last remaining undefeated team this season is the Dolphins? Only three perfect records are intact — and neither of the other teams look as dominating or seem to be having as much fun as Miami.
The Dolphins scored five rushing touchdowns and five passing touchdowns in Week 3 on the way to the NFL’s highest single-game point total since 1966 and nearly set an NFL record with 726 yards of offense in a 70-20 victory against the Broncos.
So, can the Dolphins break the 2013 Broncos’ record for most points scored in the season? Do they need a cool nickname like “The Greatest Show on Turf” for the 1999 Rams?
For now, let’s just put them atop The Post’s NFL power rankings for Week 4:
1. Dolphins (3-0)
When not drawing up no-look shovel passes, head coach Mike McDaniel is deciding whether or not to kick a field goal to set an NFL record with 73 points in a game. He didn’t. Tua Tagovailoa-to-Tyreek Hill is unstoppable. Who needs to sign Dalvin Cook or trade for Jonathan Taylor when running backs De’Von Achane and Raheem Mostert can score four touchdowns apiece?
2. San Francisco 49ers (3-0)
The 49ers have scored exactly 30 points in each of their three victories to start 3-0 for just the second time in 25 years. Christian McCaffrey scored a touchdown for the 12th straight game, and Brock Purdy tossed a pair of touchdowns in the face of a record-high blitz rate to coast to a 30-12 win against the Giants.
3. Eagles (3-0)
The authors of the most effective play in football used the “tush push” to score from the 1-yard line again and beat the Buccaneers, 25-11. The Eagles are 3-0 for the second straight season for the first time since 1992-93, and Jalen Hurts is 20-1 in his last 21 regular-season starts. D’Andre Swift ran for 130 yards.
4. Chiefs (2-1)
With rumored love interest Taylor Swift sitting next to his mother in a suite, Travis Kelce made seven catches, including one for a touchdown, in a 41-10 win against the Bears. Patrick Mahomes threw three touchdowns and survived a rolled ankle against a franchise that forever will be remembered for drafting Mitch Trubisky instead of him in 2017.
5. Bills (2-1)
For the first time since 1995, an NFL defense intercepted one quarterback four times and sacked him nine times. That’s how much the Bills tormented Sam Howell during a 37-3 victory against the Commanders, who broke up the shutout with a last-minute field goal. Josh Allen accounted for touchdowns both through the air and on the ground.
6. Lions (2-1)
After following up an eye-opening Week 1 win against the short-handed Chiefs with a dud home loss to the Seahawks, the Lions bounced back by beating the Falcons, 20-6. Rookie Sam LaPorta set a NFL record for tight ends with 18 catches through three games, including the tie-breaking, second-quarter touchdown. The defense recorded seven sacks.
7. Cowboys (2-1)
The Kings of New York — after wins of 40-0 against the Giants and 30-10 against the Jets in back-to-back weeks — crashed back to Earth with a 28-16 loss to the lowly Cardinals. The defense allowed five straight scoring drives at the start, and Dak Prescott threw a fate-sealing interception in the end zone at the finish.
8. Colts (2-1)
Why do you sign a kicker to a four-year, $22.5 million free-agent contract? In the case of the Colts and Matt Gay: so that he can go 5-for-5 on field goals, including four covering 50-plus yards and the overtime game-winner, in a 22-19 victory against the Ravens. Gardner Minshew filled in adequately for injured rookie quarterback Anthony Richardson.
9. Ravens (2-1)
About the notion that Lamar Jackson might run less in his new offensive system? Forget it. Jackson carried 14 times for 101 yards and two touchdowns … but he couldn’t carry the Ravens past the Colts. Baltimore wasted great starting field position on two overtime possessions, one of which ended with a controversial no-call of defensive pass interference.
10. Steelers (2-1)
Strange but true: The Steelers’ 23-18 win in Las Vegas was their first on the road against the Raiders since 1995. Kenny Pickett passed for 235 yards and two touchdowns as a struggling offense showed signs of life. T.J. Watt, after another two sacks, is the early favorite to win his second Defensive Player of the Year award.
11. Seahawks (2-1)
12. Falcons (2-1)
13. Browns (2-1)
14. Bengals (1-2)
15. Buccaneers (2-1)
16. Packers (2-1)
17. Saints (2-1)
18. Jaguars (1-2)
19. Commanders (2-1)
20. Rams (1-2)
21. Titans (1-2)
22. Chargers (1-2)
23. Patriots (1-2)
24. Texans (1-2)
25. Giants (1-2)
The Giants have gained less than 200 yards of offense twice in three games, including the loss to San Francisco. Actually, the Giants have looked completely overmatched except for in two quarters against the Cardinals. The offensive line is in tatters again, Saquon Barkley is sidelined by an ankle sprain, and the defense has yet to force a takeaway.
26. Cardinals (1-2)
27. Jets (1-2)
It took two weeks and one season-ending quarterback injury to revert from Super Bowl contenders back to last year’s unwatchable disaster. Zach Wilson held the ball when receivers were open, and the vaunted defense busted a coverage on a 58-yard touchdown catch during a 15-10 loss to the Patriots — the Jets’ 15th straight defeat in the rivalry.
