Week 12 temperature check: Dolphins fans

It’s that time of the week again. Let’s check the current temperature of Miami Dolphins (5-5) fans heading into Sunday’s big game against the Carolina Panthers (7-3).

The Dolphins are fighting for their playoff lives. Are you super confident? Miami has won two of the past three games to position itself for a playoff push.

What about cautiously optimistic? Miami beat quality teams this year such as the Indianapolis Colts and Cincinnati Bengals. Can the Dolphins add the streaking Panthers to their list of victims?

Does this game make your nervous? On paper, Carolina is a tough matchup for Miami in many ways. The Panthers have arguably the NFL’s best defense, a stout running game and an MVP candidate at quarterback in Cam Newton. Could it also be a disaster?
