The Carolina Panthers look for a third straight victory to keep pace in the NFC South. The Carolina Panthers have split their last 10 home games. Cam Newton is completing 62.4 percent of his passes for 1,978 yards, 10 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Newton has one touchdown pass and three interceptions in his last three games. Devin Funchess and Christian McCaffrey have combined for 849 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Ed Dickson has 22 receptions. The Carolina Panthers ground game is averaging 109.1 yards per contest, and Jonathan Stewart leads the way with 350 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Carolina is allowing 17.7 points and 274.1 yards per game. Luke Kuechly leads the Carolina Panthers with 65 tackles, Julius Peppers has 7.5 sacks and Mike Adams has two interceptions.
The Panthers are 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 games in November, 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS win and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. The Dolphins are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 Monday games, 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games in November and 2-0-2 ATS in their last 4 games on grass. The Dolphins are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 meetings and the under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Miami Dolphins are coming off their best offensive performance by far, as Cutler managed the game well, the offensive line held up and Drake along with Damien Williams formed a nice running back combo. The Carolina Panthers are moving the ball well as of late and have scored at least 20 points in four of their last six games. Both of these teams have counted on their defense a lot this season, but the total seems a tad bit too low when you consider the offensive potential both teams have. I expect to see a score of around 28-21, putting us over this small total.
