Ravens vs Bills channel, start time

The Ravens vs Bills live stream begins tonight at 8:15 p.m. ET / 5:15 p.m. PT, on Saturday, January 16. It's on NBC.

The Ravens vs Bills live stream is here, and it gives Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson the chance to check another big box in his NFL career. Last week, he won his first playoff game. Today, there is a 40 percent chance he will be playing football in the snow. 

Only about an inch is expected to fall during this Ravens vs Bills live stream and that may be nothing to a Northeast lifer, but to a 24-year-old who grew up 40 minutes north of Miami, Florida, it might as well be a blizzard. “Hopefully it don’t.” Jackson told reporters earlier this week when asked about the forecast for this NFL live stream

He went on to say his only experience playing in snow was a snowball fight on his alma mater Louisville’s campus.

What Jackson may not realize is that this Ravens team is built for this kind of game. Teams usually rely on running the ball in bad weather and Baltimore has the best ground game in the NFL led by Jackson and rookie running back, J.K. Dobbins. In last week’s win over the Titans, Dobbins averaged 4.8 yards per carry, while Jackson ran for 136 yards. The Raven’s QB even broke a 48-yard touchdown run that tied the game and gave momentum back to Baltimore.

Snow or no snow, Buffalo is a tough place to play. The Bills have only lost once at home this season and they are riding high after beating the Colts last week for their first playoff win in 25 years. Bills’ quarterback Josh Allen and wide receiver Stefon Diggs had no problem carrying their regular season success into the playoffs. Diggs caught six passes against Indy for 128 yards and a touchdown, while Allen threw for a total 324 yards, two touchdowns and ran for a touchdown as well.

Oddsmakers have the (11-5) Ravens as just 2.5-point road underdogs before kickoff against the (13-3) Bills. The Over/Under is 49.5 points.
