The Ravens vs Browns live stream begins at 8:15 p.m. ET/ 5:15 p.m. PT, Monday, December 14 on ESPN.

A lot has happened in 13 weeks, as this Ravens vs Browns live stream features two changed teams. When they met in week one, the Ravens destroyed the Browns 38-6. 

But as the weeks went on, Baltimore has been run down by Covid and injuries, while Cleveland has considerably improved, especially in its passing game. 

Standing at 7-5, Baltimore needs to win this NFL live stream to have any shot at the playoffs. At 9-3, Cleveland is on a come-from-behind streak and looking to challenge the no-longer-invincible Steelers in the AFC North.

Health problems hit the Ravens hard, especially when they lost quarterback Lamar Jackson for two weeks due to a Covid infection. Last year's MVP returned in fine form for Tuesday's 34-17 win over the Dallas Cowboys, in which he threw two touchdowns and rushed for a third. 

But he's still missing some of his top targets, including wide receivers Dez Bryant and Willie Snead IV, due to Covid. Luckily, Jackson is a double threat who can run as well as pass, and he's likely to continue exploiting rushing opportunities as much as possible in this game. 

Baltimore also has a deep bench of running backs who can carry the ball. But Cleveland will be much tougher on rushers than the Cowboys defense could manage to be. (The Browns are ranked eighth in the NFL against the run.)
