Tua Tagovailoa faces fan fury after Dolphins get trounced by Ravens

Tua Tagovailoa and the Miami Dolphins were humbled by the Baltimore Ravens in their highly-anticipated Week 17 clash. The game was expected to be a close affair, but Lamar Jackson and the offense toyed with the Dolphins' defense and scored eight touchdowns in a 56-19 hammering.

The Ravens quarterback completed 18 of 21 pass attempts for 321 yards and five touchdowns and rushed for another 35 yards. He exited the game with a perfect passer rating of 158.3. He joined Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, and Kurt Warner on the list of quarterbacks with three games with a perfect passer rating, the most in NFL history.

While Jackson took the adulation and likely the NFL MVP trophy, Tagovailoa received vicious criticism on social media. The Dolphins quarterback completed 22 of 38 pass attempts for 237 yards and two touchdowns. He also tossed two interceptions. Fans weren't impressed with Tagovailoa and made their voice heard on social media.

With this win, the Baltimore Ravens secured the top-seed, first-round bye, and home-field advantage in the playoffs.

Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins have had control of the AFC West title race for almost the entire season. A win over the Ravens would've not only earned them a division title but put them in a position to secure the #1 seed in the AFC.

However, their Week 17 loss and the Buffalo Bills' win over the New England Patriots see them face a do-or-die situation in Week 18. They will face the Bills in primetime on Sunday Night Football, and the winner will be rewarded with the AFC East crown and a home playoff game.

The Dolphins last won a division title in 2008. Since then, the Patriots, followed by the Bills, have had an iron grip on the AFC East crown. The Dolphins are one home win away from ending their 15-year wait for a home playoff game.

The two teams' first battle this season ended in a 48-20 win for the Bills. That loss ended the Dolphins' undefeated start to the season. Miami will have one eye on the division title, but they also want to avenge the 28-point defeat they suffered in Week 4.
