Week 4 comes to an end today as the New Orleans Saints host the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football. This is an unexpected matchup of undefeated teams, although more because of the latter team rather than the former.

The Saints are 3-0 with home wins over the Falcons and Cardinals, and a road win over the Buccaneers. The Saints struggled last year amidst the fallout from Bounty-Gate, but with the return of Sean Payton, they are off to a strong start. And with the Falcons struggling out of the gate, the NFC South is their's for the taking.

The Dolphins are 3-0 with road wins over the Browns and Colts, and a home win over the Falcons. I don't think any of us saw that coming. They had talent heading into the season, but they have exceeded my expectations. They edged out Indy and Atlanta, but wins are wins, and those are two solid teams. They now sit a half game back of the Patriots, and another big NFC South win would move them back into a tie for first place.

The Saints are a touchdown favorite tonight, so we'll see if the Dolphins can pull off the upset.
