For all of the consternation swirling around the Ravens' offense, the unit is ranked 11th in the league in yards gained per game (346.2 average), fifth in first downs (21.0 average) and second in time of possession (34 minutes, 44 seconds). The problem is that the offense is 21st in points per game (17.6), 28th in red-zone efficiency (31.3 percent) and 32nd in penalties (40).

The outlook is much better on the other side of the ball where the defense is ranked fourth in the league in yards allowed per game (274.0), first in first downs surrendered per game (13.2) and second in time of possession (25:16). The unit isn't entirely unblemished, however, ranking 14th in points allowed per game (19.4), tying for 18th in sacks (9.0) and 13th against the pass (207.4 yards per game).

Among the individual highlights, Willis McGahee ranks third among all NFL running backs with 464 yards, Ed Reed is tied for second in interceptions with three, and kicker Matt Stover is tied for first with 13 field goals made.

Among the lowlights, Steve McNair is tied for 28th in passing touchdowns with two, Mason is the only Raven in the top 50 in receiving yardage with 372 yards, and Jarret Johnson and Corey Ivy -- who are tied for the team lead with two sacks each -- are tied for 40th in that category.
