It's time for the Rams vs Ravens live stream, which features an L.A. team that is hoping things fall in the right place as their season winds down. The Rams need Green Bay to falter as well as take care of what they can control to grab the NFC's top seed. As for the Ravens, they will again be without Lamar Jackson as Tyler Huntley gets the start in this NFL live stream

The Rams (11-4) are back to the high level of play that many expected from them at the beginning of the season. After a three-game losing streak in the middle of the year and a COVID scare, the Rams have rattled off four wins in a row, matching their longest winning streak of the season. In their latest win, L.A. was able to overcome a three-interception game from Matthew Stafford to beat the Vikings 30-23.

Cooper Kupp continues to dazzle this season. The wide-out leads all receivers in yards, receptions, and touchdowns. Last week he caught 10 passes for 109 yards marking his fourth straight 100-plus yard game and 10th overall on the year.  

The Ravens (8-7) have gone the complete opposite way of their week 17 opponent. While the Rams have won four-straight, the Ravens have dropped four-in-a-row. A big part of that is the playing status of former MVP Lamar Jackson. The quarterback will miss his fourth game of this season and third due to an ankle injury. Tyler Huntley will get the start in Jackson's place. The Ravens are 1-2 in the three games this season where Huntley has taken the majority of the snaps. 

Baltimore has only had two really tough losses this season and they were both against the Bengals. In those games the Ravens allowed Cincinnati to put up 41 points in each game. Now they’ll look to get their defense to step up against a Rams team that scores 27.7 points-per-game, sixth highest average in the NFL.

The Rams are now 6.5-point favorites against the Ravens. The over/under is 46.5.

The inactives are:

Rams: Bryce Perkins (QB), Cam Akers (RB), JuJu Hughes (DB), Chris Garrett (LB), Terrell Lewis (LB), Alaric Jackson (OL), Tremayne Anchrum (OL)

Ravens: Lamar Jackson (QB), James Proche II (WR), Anthony Averett (CB), Ben Powers (G), Miles Boykin (WR), Pernell McPhee (OLB), Odafe Oweh (OLB),
