The Carolina Panthers' record-setting numbers on offense the first month of the season haven't translated into wins.
Cam Newton is on pace to break Dan Marino's single-season passing record and wide receiver Steve Smith could shatter Jerry Rice's single-season receiving record at this torrid pace, but it hardly matters as the Panthers are just 1-3.
In each of their three losses the Panthers have had a chance to win or tie the game late in the fourth quarter. They got it done against Jacksonville, but fell short against Arizona, Green Bay and Chicago.

Tight end Greg Olsen says ''it's getting pretty old.'' He says Carolina needs to learn how to beat good teams.
