By the numbers: Panthers vs. Dolphins

Updated November 14

Charlotte, N.C. — The Carolina Panthers host the Miami Dolphins at Bank of America Stadium for Monday Night Football with a three-game winning streak on the line.

Carolina remains in the hunt for the NFC South division crown, and a win on Monday will keep the Panthers within a half game behind of the New Orleans Saints.

The Panthers defeated claimed back-to-back division victories over Tampa Bay and Atlanta in the last two weeks.

Miami enters Monday’s matchup with an even 4-4 record, including two-straight losses to the Ravens and Raiders.

Here’s a look at the significant numbers between the Panthers and Dolphins leading up to Monday’s contest:

The Cam Newton led Panthers are 4-1 all-time in five Monday Night Football games:

Nov. 18, 2013 - Panthers 24, Patriots 20

Nov. 2, 2015 - Panthers 29, Colts 26 (OT)

The Panthers have not faired well historically against Miami, posting an all-time record of 1-4 in five games since 1998.

Carolina is 0-2 against Miami at Bank of America Stadium, but the Panthers won the teams’ last matchup, a 20-16 victory during the 2013 season.

Nov. 4, 2001 - Panthers 6, Dolphins 23

Nov. 19, 2009 - Panthers 17, Dolphins 24

Six members of the Dolphins coaching staff or active roster played collegiately in the Carolinas:

Andre Branch, DE - Clemson

William Hayes, DE - Winston-Salem State

Terrell Williams, DL coach - East Carolina

Unlike last season, the Panthers have come out on the right side of close games.

The Panthers are 4-1 games decided by a touchdown or less. Last year, Carolina finished 2-6 in games decided by six or fewer points.

Carolina is riding a 13-game streak of holding opposing running backs to less than 100-yards rushing, dating back to last season.

Seattle running back Thomas Rawls is the last tailback to record at least 100 yards against the Panthers’ defense.

Rawls tallied 15 carries for 106 yards and two touchdowns in the Seahawks’ 40-7 win against Carolina last season in Week 13.

The Panthers are 2-1 in their last three games, but Carolina is averaging only 13.3 points per contest.

Week 8: Panthers 17, Buccaneers 3

No. 29

Veteran safety Mike Adams picked off Atlanta’s Matt Ryan last week, his second interception in as many weeks.

Adams was in concussion protocol this week but the team reported he will be active on Monday against the Dolphins.

The Panthers are 3-0 this season when tallying an interception and 3-3 in games without.

Carolina totaled 201 rushing yards last week against Atlanta, the first 200-yard rushing performance since recording 204 yards on the ground against the Philadelphia Eagles on Oct. 25, 2015.

Cam Newton and Christian McCaffrey both had season-high rushing performances against the Falcons. Newton tallied nine carries for 86 yards, and McCaffrey finished with 15 carries for 66 yards.

The Panthers are 4-2 this season when totaling more than 100 yards rushing.

Miami’s offense ranks dead last in the league in total offense (270.3) and points scored (14.5)

The Jay Cutler led offense has averaged 192.6 yards passing and 77.6 yards on the ground in eight games this season.

Carolina enters Monday night’s tilt with the No. 1 ranked defense in the National Football League.

The Panthers are averaging 78.4 yards rushing and 195.7 yards passing per contest, ranked No. 2 and No. 6, respectively.

Carolina is also allowing only 17.6 points per contest, which ranks fourth in the league.
