It’a time for the Browns vs Jaguars live stream, and the scene is set for one franchise on the field to try and build off last season’s success. As for the other? It‘s just hoping to start building a team that will be a perennial contender. We'll all learn where each roster stands after this NFL live stream, a bit of a gauge for the upcoming season.

Browns vs Jaguars channel, start time

The Browns vs Jaguars live stream is kicking off at 7 p.m. ET / 4 p.m. PT today (Saturday August 14).

Despite selecting quarterback Trevor Lawrence with the first pick in April’s draft, new head coach Urban Myer’s has yet to name him the “starter.” Lawrence has been competing with Gardner Minshew this training camp and both have played well. 

When asked about playing time for Saturday, Jaguars offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said, “We wanted to continue to let these guys compete out here today in practice.” That’s as vague as vague gets. Minshew went 1-7 in his eight starts for the Jags last season. No matter who starts, fans will get their first chance to see Lawrence throw at this level in a game situation.

Also making his NFL debut as a tight end anyway, will be Tim Tebow. The former Florida Heisman Trophy winner and Broncos’ quarterback hasn’t played a down in the NFL since he was on the Eagles’ roster during the preseason in 2015. Tebow is now trying to make an NFL comeback. He turns 34 years old on game day.  

Browns fans are coming off a high from last year. They capped off their 2020 season with the franchise’ first postseason win since the 1994 season. Now Cleveland only wants more. They have found their franchise quarterback in Baker Mayfield, now it’s a matter of surrounding him with talent. They have the veteran receivers in Odel Beckham Jr and Jarvis Landry, but OBJ is still working his way back from injury and Jarvis Landry is coming off a year where he caught just three touchdown passes. 

The Browns are now grooming second-year wideout Donovan Peoples-Jones to take a bigger role in the offense. A lot of eyes will be on DPJ Saturday night.

The Jaguars host the Browns as 3.5-point favorites. The over/under is 37.

If FOX, ESPN, NBC and NFL Network have typically been enough to get you all the football you need, you could rely on Sling (which doesn't include CBS or NFL RedZone). You can get CBS NFL games via Paramount Plus, if you want.

The more comprehensive package comes from fuboTV, as it has all five of the main channels you'll want: CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC and the NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

It's a case of "you get what you pay for" as Sling Orange & Blue (which you'd need to get ESPN, FOX, NBC and NFL Network) costs $50 per month, while the Fubo TV Standard package gives you all of the above, for $65 per month.

Sling TV

If you can stand to miss CBS games, Sling TV provides a middle ground. The $50 per month Sling Orange + Blue package has FOX affiliates for this game, as well as local NBC affiliates plus ESPN.

NFL Sunday Ticket: No pre-season games are included, so the Browns vs Jaguars game won't be on NFL Sunday Ticket.
