The Carolina Panthers have already found themselves, for all intents and purposes, in must-win territory here in Week 12. So, will that light a hotter fire under these cats in their push towards the postseason?
Let’s see what the experts think.
USA TODAY: Panthers
Six of the seven picks over at USA TODAY Sports land with the Panthers. Four of those picks see Carolina pulling it off with a close, one-possession edge.
Carolina gets another pick-six (see what we did there?). But with ESPN having a slate of 10 experts, the concentration is a bit more skewed towards the middle.
Pro Football Talk: Panthers
Mike Florio and Michael David Smith side with the visitors. Florio goes 27-21 on the scoreboard while Smith says 24-14.
CBS Sports: Panthers
It’s a scintillating six again for the Panthers, with two in favor of the Dolphins.
Four of the five Monday Morning Quarterbacks (Quarterbackers?) go with Carolina. Conor Orr accounts for Miami’s lone supporter.
The Panthers take each publication. Overall, it’s a 24-8 tally.
