THE SETUP

The Carolina Panthers will host the Miami Dolphins at Bank of America Stadium on Monday Night Football.

The Panthers and the Dolphins are meeting for the sixth time. The Dolphins hold a 4-1 edge in the all-time series. Miami is one of two teams in the NFL that Carolina has never beaten at Bank of America Stadium (along with Tennessee). The Dolphins won both games in Charlotte, the most recent coming in 2009. Carolina’s lone win in the series came in the most recent matchup, a 20-16 victory in Miami in 2013.

HELMET STICKERS

Tonight you'll notice Panthers players all wearing a special sticker on their helmets. It's all part of the NFL's Salute To Service. The stickers honor the following fallen service members.

PANTHERS MNF STATS

Carolina is 9-6 all-time on Monday Night Football, including a 6-3 mark at home. The Panthers had a win over Washington on MNF last season and defeated Indianapolis in overtime on Monday Night Football in 2015, marking Carolina's last home win on Monday night.

Carrie The Cardiac Cat Fan Zone

Why I Go By "Carrie The Cardiac Cat Fan"

I go by "Carrie The Cardiac Cat Fan" because when the Carolina Panthers play my heart pounds out of my chest, my hands get sweaty, I suddenly feel like I can't breathe, my knees knock, wobble and all at the same time. I get so nervous at times I cover my eyes. I scream out words and sometimes get lightheaded.

Just So You Know
I was born and raised in High Point, North Carolina. For years, I was like a lost bandwagon NFL fan, but not by choice. I cheered for (and don’t hate) the Cowboys, because in those days it was all about Troy Aikman. Then it was all cheers (and this really hurts to admit) for the Falcons. But then that fateful day of October 26, 1993, came and it forever changed my life. I’ve been covered in blue and cheering for my ‘Cardiac Cats’ ever since. I’ve stuck by their side and will until the day I die (and okay, even after death).

Panthers Fan At WFMY News 2 

I’m a Digital Producer here at WFMY News 2. This has given me an unbelievable opportunity to interact with fans and share in all the game day fun like no other.

I remember the many trips to Panthers’ Stadium. I ate your barbecue and tailgated with one of the biggest fans and grills I have EVER seen. I’ve also stood with you at the porta-potty and talked football. 

I have stepped foot onto the gridiron. I’ve gathered handfuls of confetti after that big win that sent the Panthers to Super Bowl 50. I stood with my heart beating out of my chest as you cheered and sang “Sweet Caroline” rushing out of Panthers Stadium after the NFC Championship win against the Cardinals.

I got to be a part of Panthers football history with the celebration send-off party to Super Bowl 50. I’ve waited in line with fans for hours to get a glimpse of the Panthers players coming off the bus after Super Bowl 50.

Perhaps my favorite moment with a fan was this as I captured this Panther's kid in a dance battle with Sir Purr and of course the kid won!
