The Miami Dolphins traveled to Charlotte, North Carolina, to take on the Carolina Panthers on Monday Night Football and left on the wrong end of a 45-21 decision. Carolina (7-3) extended its winning streak to three games as it heads into a bye in Week 11, while Miami (4-5) lost its third straight. Both teams made headlines before the NFL trade deadline by packaging stars in deals; wideout Kelvin Benjamin was dealt by the Panthers, and the Fins moved running back Jay Ajayi. With those players now in Buffalo and Philadelphia, Christian McCaffrey and Devin Funchess came up big for the Panthers, scoring two touchdowns apiece.
