The win was a huge one for Brian Flores and the Dolphins, but a disaster for the Ravens.
That explains the wide range of reactions following the bizarre game.

Fallout From The Primetime Showdown
Ravens fans have to be in a state of shock following the game.
They went in expecting an easy victory, only to see the offense stall and manage three points through the first three quarters.

You can see Rashod Bateman saying “Thank you! Thank you!” in response to Lamar Jackson’s frustration.
Ravens players clearly upset with offensive schemes.
Harbaugh also noted offensive schemes to Zero Coverage was not up to par.

Miami was blitzing nonstop and Jackson was visibly frustrated on the sidelines.
Something needs to be changed if the Ravens could only manage 10 points against the Dolphins.

Meanwhile, Dolphins fans can finally enjoy a nice win this season.
Those in support of Tagovailoa had to wait to see him play in what was a confusing situation.
He was too hurt to start, but was healthy enough to play in general?
That did not make much sense, but fans can still just be excited about the win to improve to 3-7.
Give me this version of Tua over Jacoby Brissett every time. Limitations and all.

Tagovailoa was the No. 5 overall pick in 2020 and from the way he is talked about, it sometimes feels like he is a journeyman on his way out.
All the southpaw can do is play his best and prove to the Dolphins that he is indeed the franchise guy.
Having the support of the fans is a good start.
Tua Tagovailoa w/ a broken finger:
12.15 yards per attempt
19.8 yards per completion
35+ air yard completion to Waddle
He’s not there quite yet but I think one day we’re gonna look back and laugh at the “Tua can’t push the ball down the field” narrative.

The game itself was a bit of a dud until the fourth quarter, but the final result has left fans with plenty to talk about.
That is always a positive outcome.
