The Latest from Week 12 of the NFL (all times EST):
Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers head to Miami fighting for their playoff lives — and looking to snap a dubious streak.
Newton has lost his past nine starts as the Panthers starting quarterback going back to 2018. His previous win as Carolina’s starting quarterback came Nov. 4, 2018, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Panthers (5-6) are tied for 10th in the NFC.
Newton was terrific in the previous Dolphins-Panthers meeting in 2017, completing 21 of 35 passes for 254 yards and four touchdowns. Newton also carried five times for 95 yards in the 45-21 win.
The Dolphins started the season 1-7, but have rallied to win three straight games.
