The Browns vs Steelers game begins at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT today (Sunday, Oct. 18).
It's on CBS, as a part of week 6 of the NFL 2020 season.
The Browns vs Steelers live stream is looking a lot better now that Baker Mayfield and Odell Beckham Jr are expected to play (opens in new tab). Mayfield suffered a chest industry but appeared to be "trending in the right direction," according to Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski.
Beckham was away from the team for a few days due to a non-COVID related illness but is also expected to be in the lineup. This NFL live stream should prove very competitive as the Browns are 4-1 and the Steelers are 4-0.
This matchup could be decided based on which team handles the pass rush better. And if that rings true, we'll likely see a Steelers win, as Ben Roethlisberger is ranked number 7 in passer ratings under pressure — while Mayfield is #33.

How to watch Browns vs Steelers live streams with a VPN
Football fans, if for some reason you've had to leave your own "bubble" — or you can't get CBS where you are for some strange reason — and you can't watch the Browns vs Steelers live streams you want, you're not out of luck. With a virtual private network, or VPN, you can appear to be surfing the web from your home town (or somewhere that blackouts won't hit), and access the same streaming services you already paid for.
Not sure which VPN is right for you? We've tested many different services and our pick for the best VPN overall is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab). ExpressVPN offers superb speeds and excellent customer service, and IPVanish's low pricing is shocking.

Browns vs Steelers live streams in the US
In America, Browns vs Steelers is going to be broadcast on local CBS affiliates, which are included on most cable TV packages and available on one of our favorite streaming services: fuboTV. Game time is 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT on Sunday (Oct. 18).
Sling TV, our other favorite live TV service, won't be enough to help, as its array of NFL game-hosting networks — FOX, ESPN, NBC and NFL Network — lacks CBS and NFL RedZone.
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 $45 per month, while the Fubo TV Standard package gives you all of the above, for $59.99 per month.
