The Browns vs Giants live stream is scheduled to begin at 8:20 p.m. ET/ 5:20 p.m. PT today (Sunday, Dec. 20) on NBC.

The Browns vs Giants live stream is here and both teams have been flying pretty high — despite not soaring as well early. Each finished week 13 on a four-game winning streak, with New York actually leading the NFC East and Cleveland in the top wildcard slot for the AFC. 

That vaulted this NFL live stream into the prime time slot for Sunday night. Then came twin losses in week 14 that knocked each team down a notch. Right now the Browns are favored by 6 points in this matchup, and it's easy to see why.  

Of the two losses, the Browns' 47-42 fall to the Ravens was a more noble defeat that demonstrates much greater scoring potential than the Giants showed in their 26-7 drubbing by the Cardinals. 

Cleveland has a lot more firepower, including quarterback Baker Mayfield and running backs Nick Chub and Kareem Hunt. The Giants loss was a more sobering affair, revealing a team that struggles mightily to put points on the board. (They average just 18 points per game, the second-lowest tally in the NFL, after the winless Jets.)

While Mayfield shined even in defeat, the Giants' quarterback Daniel Jones struggled. Just returning after a hamstring injury, Jones was less mobile than usual and an easy target, taking 11 hits and six sacks. Daniel Jones' status for today remains questionable for now, but we don't expect backup Colt McCoy to fare much better.
