The most telling number of the Ravens 2016 season is probably 8 -- as in eight wins, which simply aren't enough, and eight losses, which simply are too many for a team aspiring to make the playoffs.
As linebacker Zach Orr said while cleaning out his locker on Monday, "We finished 8-8. No matter how you look at it, with the highs and the lows, we’re an average football team right now."
Here are five other numbers that help tell the story of the Ravens season:
31 -- The total number of sacks by the Ravens, the team's lowest total since 2010 and the third-lowest total in franchise history.
Terrell Suggs, playing with a biceps injury much of the year, led the way with eight sacks. But Elvis Dumervil missed eight games and finished with three, and disappointing Za'Darius Smith had just one. Rookie Matt Judon finished with four sacks, but second-round pick Kamalei Correa was no factor as a pass rusher.
Timmy Jernigan finished second on the team with five sacks, though he had three in the first three games and had little impact over the final month of the season.
Quite simply, the Ravens pass rush was a nonfactor way too often.
83.5 -- Joe Flacco's final quarterback rating, which ranked 24th among regular starting quarterbacks.
Flacco threw for a franchise-record 4,317 yards, but that is misleading; he threw 672 passes -- the second-most in the league and also a franchise record. His average of 6.42 yards per attempt was the second-lowest of his career and illustrated the dink-and-dunk, checkdown nature of the Ravens offense.
Whether the knee injury was a factor, Flacco's mechanics were off all season. His accuracy suffered and his decision-making was questionable. He finished with 20 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.
In short, he wasn't nearly good enough.
141 - Points by kicker Justin Tucker, a franchise record. That speaks both to Tucker's remarkable season and to the Ravens' repeated inability to score touchdowns.
Tucker was exceptional. He finished 38-for-39 on field goals -- his 38 field goals led the league -- and the only miss was blocked. Tucker tied an NFL record by making 10 field goals from 50 yards or longer. (He was a perfect 10-for-10, in fact.)
But as tight end Dennis Pitta said, the Ravens made Tucker look too good. The offense frequently stalled in the red zone, settling for three points instead of seven. Two clues: They ranked 24th in third-down conversion percentage and 20th in the red zone.
367 - Carries by the Ravens, the lowest total in franchise history. Despite repeated assurances from coach John Harbaugh that the Ravens wanted to run the ball -- the lack of running helped cost Marc Trestman his job as offensive coordinator -- the Ravens simply refused to do it.
After the season, Harbaugh insisted offensive coordinator Marty Mornhingweg "believes in running the football." But there was little evidence of that. That's a shame, because both Terrance West (193 carries, 774 yards) and especially rookie Kenneth Dixon (88-382) showed plenty of promise.
1,111-- Penalty yards piled up by the Ravens, the third-highest total in franchise history. Their total of 125 penalties ranks tied for third in team history.
Time and again, drives stalled because penalties left the Ravens in second or third-and-long situations and they lacked the offensive firepower or ability to overcome that.
To be sure, penalties hurt on special teams and defense as well; rookie cornerback Tavon Young had a strong rookie season but finished with a team-high nine penalties, including four in the last three games.
