In 2013, the Ravens finished a disappointing season with an 8-8 record. For the first time in five years the Ravens did not make it to the postseason. Many players took turns taking the blame, either self-assessed or media based. Even coaches took the blame, two being offensive line coach Juan Castillo and offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell.

The offense as a whole definitely took the blame for a pretty terrible season in that phase of the game. Ray Rice, who had four 1,000 yard rushing seasons before 2013, only managed 660 rushing yards last year. Joe Flacco threw 22 interceptions in 2013, which was ten more than his previous season high.

There have been multiple casualties as well as multiple additions that have changed the offense from 25th in total points and 29th in total yards to eighth in total points and 11th in total yards.
