Today's Ravens vs Lions live stream shows a Baltimore team fresh off an emotional primetime win taking on a Detroit team still searching for their first win of the season.

Lamar Jackson and the Ravens (1-1) rallied to score two touchdowns in the fourth quarter last week to beat the Chiefs, 36-35. Baltimore cemented the victory by recovering a Clyde Edwards-Helaire fumble as Kansas City was trying to get in position for at least a game-winning field goal.

Jackson is coming off a vintage “Lamar Jackson” performance in the win over the Chiefs. The 2019 MVP threw for 239 yards and a touchdown while also running for a team high 107 yards and two touchdowns. He’ll look to repeat that performance against Detroit Sunday. 

Good news for Jackson, the Lions (0-2) have allowed the two previous quarterbacks they’ve faced to go off. In week one, Detroit allowed Jimmy Garoppolo to post a 124 passer rating. That was before getting torched in week 2 by Aaron Rodgers for four touchdown passes as he posted a 145 passer rating. The Lions’ defense as a whole has allowed the second most points scored this season with 38 points allowed per game. 

The inactives are as follows:

Ravens: OT Ronnie Stanley, S Ar'Darius Washington, DE Derek Wolfe

Lions: LB Jamie Collins, LB Trey Flowers, RB Jermar Jefferson, WR Tom Kennedy

If Detroit is going to have a chance at grabbing their first win of the season, they’ll need to find a way to limit the damage Baltimore's top ranked rushing attack seems to inflict at will and keep up with the Ravens scoring which might not be as tall a task as it seems. While the Lions have allowed the second most points this season, the Ravens aren’t far better allowing 34 points-per-game, third most in the NFL

The Ravens are big 8-point road favorites against the Lions. The over/under is 49.5.

You can get your local CBS network's NFL games via Paramount Plus, if you want.

The NFL game broadcast rights have stayed similar season over season. CBS gets AFC games on Sunday afternoons, FOX has the NFC games, NBC has Sunday Night Football and some Thursday night football, while ESPN has Monday Night Football. Amazon Prime Video has some Thursday Night Football games, while the NFL Network will continue to offer a bunch of games throughout the year. 

So, that makes it really easy to recommend where cord-cutters should turn to watch the NFL season: Fubo TV. Built for all things sports, Fubo has all three of those local broadcasters, plus ESPN and NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

Sling TV doesn't have CBS (not without AirTV at least), so while that's one of our favorite services, it's not ideal for football fans.

Fubo.TV:a 7-day free trial

Fubo.TV: One of the best streaming services with FOX, and the top pick for watching all of the 2021 NFL live streams, Fubo has all of the right network channels and the two cable channels you don't want to go without.

Paramount Plus

Paramount Plus combines what used to be CBS All Access with even more content from the deep ViacomCBS vault. Get access to Survivor and Big Brother episodes, as well as originals like Star Trek: Picard and The Good Fight. And more great stuff is on the way, including Frasier and Criminal Minds revivals.
