This matchup looks downright spectacular on paper. You'll see two outstanding quarterbacks — Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson — battling it out, along with two defenses that have proven outstanding all year long.

For the Ravens, the recipe is quite simple: allow Lamar Jackson to be Lamar Jackson. The Ravens quarterback is well on his way to securing the season's Most Valuable Player award, and his playoff run has been no less valuable. Jackson looked impressive in the Ravens' easy win last week over the Texans, not only with strong passing but also with more than 100 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. 

To stop Jackson, the Kansas City Chiefs defense will need to be on top of its game. As mentioned, not only can he beat you in the air, but he can also beat you on the ground. If the Chiefs aren't prepared for that, it could be a bad night for the team.

That said, the Ravens have their work cut out for them, too. Mahomes is one of the league's best quarterbacks and is well on his way to securing a spot in the Hall of Fame. It doesn't hurt that he has tight end Travis Kelce on the receiving end of Mahomes' big throws. Mahomes is still looking for one more good option in his wide receiver corps, but it certainly didn't slow him down last week.

This Chiefs vs Ravens live stream for the AFC crown promises to be a high-intensity affair and you won't want to miss it. With less than an hour before gametime, DraftKings has the Chiefs as 4.5-point underdogs on the road, a rare position for Mahomes, and the over/under is set at 44 points. Read on to learn more about how to watch Chiefs vs Ravens when it airs live in an hour on CBS.

Will Taylor Swift be at Chiefs vs Ravens?

After cheering on boyfriend Travis Kelce at last week's divisional game in Buffalo, and getting a nice heart sign from Kelce, Taylor Swift will likely be in attendance for the AFC Championship game between the Chiefs and Ravens. 

Of course, for security reasons, Swift and her team haven't confirmed that she'll be in attendance, but considering she's been at nearly a dozen games this year, it seems likely she'll be at the biggest game so far. 

That might be good news for the Chiefs: they've won eight out of the 11 games she's attended.
