Two weeks ago, head coach Adam Gase called out his club after an embarrassing 40-0 loss to Baltimore. It included the trade of talented, but unhappy running back Jay Ajayi who had run for just 3.4 YPR on the season.

Miami responded with a much better effort against the Raiders last week, but still dropped a 27-24 decision.

QB Jay Cutler was back under center after missing the previous game and a half and he built on the solid performance he was putting up against the Jets before he was knocked out of that game. Against New York he completed 12 of 16 passes for 138 yards, two touchdowns and an interception before he had to leave. Add it up and that’s a 114.1 QB rating.

Last week he completed 34 of 42 passes (81% completion rate), for a season high 311 yards, a season high three touchdowns and most importantly, zero interceptions. It was the first time since week one that he didn’t throw a pick.

The running back duties fell to second year player Kenyon Drake and in his second career start rushed for 69 yards on nine carries. He also lost a fumble.

Oakland dominated the middle frame, building a 20-9 lead, before Miami mounted a comeback, they made it 27-24 with 1:32 remaining, but couldn’t recover the onside kick.

Carolina’s offense has been stuck in neutral the past four weeks, but they have won two straight over division rivals Tampa Bay and Atlanta to boost their record to 6-3. The Panthers have scored 3-17-20 points over the past three games. They’ve averaged 295.5 YPG in their last four.

The defense on the other hand has stepped up and have been one of the league’s best this year. They’ve held three teams to three points on the season. They’ve also kept teams under 300 yards of total offense in five of their nine games.

That list includes the 49ers, Bills, Lions, Bears and Bucs. Essentially they have been beating up the mediocre offenses on their schedule. Their record against those teams is 4-1 and the cumulative score is 79-50. That’s an average score of 16-10.

Miami is 32nd scoring 14.5 PPG and 16th allowing 22.4 PPG.

Carolina is 24th scoring 18.7 PPG and 4th allowing 17.7 PPG

Bovada has the Panthers listed as 9-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 38 according to MyBookie.

On the NFL Football Moneyline Odds at BetOnline Panthers are the Favorite at -415.

The result:
Carolina are -9 favorites which seems a tad high for a team that is struggling to score points themselves. They’re also facing a Dolphins team that needs to win to maintain their standing in a tight playoff race. I do think Carolina wins here, but fails to cover. The Pick: Panthers 17-14.
