Mayfield, Panthers passing game a concern despite 1st win

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) While the Carolina Panthers finally got their first victory of the season with a 22-14 win over the New Orleans Saints, the passing game remains a major issue.

Baker Mayfield has struggled since his arrival in Carolina, completing just 51.9% of his passes for 550 yards with three touchdowns and one interception through three games. He has been sacked nine times and hasn't played with same swagger he had during his four seasons with the Cleveland Browns.

So while the Panthers (1-2) were busy celebrating the end of a league-long nine-game losing streak on Sunday, the reality is there is an enormous amount of work that needs to be done for this team to take a step forward offensively.
