Three teams – the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons and Houston Texans – were the only unbeaten teams after three weeks of the 2012 season. For each of these three, a 3-0 start has been rare.
Atlanta: The Falcons were 3-0 for the first time since 2004 when they started the season 4-0. Atlanta won the NFC South that season and went on to lose to the Eagles in the NFC Championship Game. Ironically, this year’s 3-0 start (which later became an 8-0 start) led to another NFC South title and another loss in the NFC Championship Game, this time to the 49ers.
