My recovery key doesn't work

My recovery key (24 words) doesn’t let me recover my wallet. I only have this key, never made some kind of wallet. Can I still get it back?

Wallets can’t be backed up via key. Key is only for sync bookmarks etc.
And the super old keys from years ago for wallets don’t work anymore I believe if that is what you are talking about.
The only way to backup wallets(BAT) is to connect to uphold or Gemini.
