"Obviously, we're bringing Eugene in to play. How soon that can happen remains to be seen. The main thing is it makes us better. It makes us better almost immediately in terms of adding a football player of that quality to our team," said Harbaugh.
Philbin, meanwhile, is putting the struggles of keeping Tannehill upright on the whole offense.
"It's a unit-wide issue, without a question. Every position has been impacted," the Dolphins head coach said. "There are times where the offensive line has gotten beat. There's been times where the quarterback has held the ball too long or hasn't moved swiftly enough in the pocket. There's been times that our running back has missed a pickup. There's been times where the tight ends have missed a pickup. It's been widespread. It hasn't been one particular individual."
Miami got a five-yard touchdown run from running back Lamar Miller and 115 total rushing yards versus the Saints, including 48 from Tannehill. The Dolphins could put further emphasis on the ground game given the Ravens allowed the Bills to rush for 203 yards on 55 attempts last weekend.
Baltimore did the opposite with its ground game and ranks 28th in the NFL in rushing (64.0 YPG) and total offense (317.5 YPG).
"We're not running the ball well. We've got to run the ball better," said Harbaugh. "You saw the difference in the first half with (Buffalo). They're running the ball for four, five yards at time and putting themselves in manageable third downs, and we're not doing that. That's tough on everybody. That's tough on our passing game, on our quarterback. We've got to get to the point where we can execute in the running game."
Looking to prevent Rice and Pierce from getting things going this weekend will be Dolphins linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, who faces his former Ravens club for the first time.
Ellerbe was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Ravens out of Georgia and played four seasons with the club from 2009-12. He had nearly 200 tackles over that time as well as 5 1/2 sacks. He had 92 tackles and 4 1/2 sacks in 13 games with the Ravens last year while helping them win the Super Bowl.
"It looks like he's a leader for them, first of all," Harbaugh said of Ellerbe. "He's done a great job. On the field, you can see he takes charge, he calls the signals, and he's a sideline-to-sideline linebacker, just like he always has been. If there's a screen out there, Dannell sniffs it out, it seems like. He's just the same great player he was here."
The Dolphins also hope that Ellerbe can give them some advice on how to stop Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs, who has a sack in each of his first four games this season for the first time since his 2003 rookie season.
Suggs will be looking to match Adalius Thomas (2005, 2006) and Paul Kruger's (2012) franchise record of five straight games with at least a half-sack.
While the Ravens need to get the ground game going, they did see wide receiver Jacoby Jones return to practice this week. He has not played since Week 1 due to a knee injury.
Wideout Brandon Stokley missed the Bills game because of a groin issue and Torrey Smith stepped up with game highs of five catches and 166 yards with a touchdown. He ranks third in the NFL with 435 receiving yards and is second in yards per catch at 20.7.
The Dolphins are hoping they will not be without star defensive end Cameron Wake for a second week in a row. He did practice on Wednesday after sitting out Monday night's game with a sprained knee. Wake was held without a sack in back-to-back games after getting 2 1/2 in the Week 1 win over Cleveland and Derrick Shelby started in his place versus the Saints.
Bouncing back is again the theme for the Ravens this weekend and though they were able to do it in Week 2, putting up just 14 points on Cleveland could hardly be viewed as a success.
Flacco got big money this offseason after leading Baltimore to a Super Bowl title and could start to see some added weight on his shoulders with another loss this weekend, so rebounding is a must.
"It's something that you have to do. It's definitely not easy to throw five interceptions and just be cool with it. It was the main reason why we didn't win that football game. You have to live with it and move on," said Flacco.
Rice will be another week removed from his injury and the Ravens should look to nullify the Dolphins pass rush by using Rice in the ground game and on dumpoffs.
The Dolphins surprised more than a few with their 3-0 start, but fell under the bright lights of "Monday Night Football." They should struggle to keep pace again this Sunday.
