4. 2013 schedule

The 2013 season was challenging for reasons that went beyond the fact that there was no more Ray Lewis and they were coming off of a Super Bowl title. The team parted ways with a record eight starters, all whom were apart of that epic Super Bowl run the year before.

They finished the season with an 8-8 record, digressing from 2012, finishing third in the AFC North.
