Ravens vs Steelers live stream channel, start time

The Ravens vs Steelers live stream is finally set to start, at 3:40 p.m. ET — it was originally going to be Week 12's Thursday Night Football game, and then got moved to Sunday afternoon and then Tuesday evening.
It will air on NBC.

Finally, the Ravens vs Steelers live stream is here. What was supposed to be a Thanksgiving night clash moved three times: to Sunday afternoon, to Tuesday night and now Wednesday afternoon. And then Baltimore lost its QB (details below). 

Things were looking good for the Ravens until they tangled with the Pittsburgh Steelers in week 8. Thus began a downward slide in which the Ravens have lost three of their past four NFL live streams (including last week's 30-24 overtime loss to the Titans). Now at 6-4, visiting Baltimore has to pull off an upset in Pittsburgh to remain in contention for the conference. Bookmakers are favoring the Steelers over the Ravens by at least three points.

The Ravens' situation at QB has drastically changed, as Lamar Jackson tested positive for COVID-19. Robert Griffin III is now starting in his place. And he's going up against one of the best defenses out there: Pittsburgh has allowed the third-fewest points in the NFL this season.

Meanwhile the Ravens' traditionally strong defense has been decimated by injuries. Defensive ends Calais Campbell and Jihad Ward, defensive tackle Brandon Williams, and safety Geno Stone are all out for this game. Defensive weakness was on display in the Titans match, in which RB Derrick Henry ran all over the Ravens, including a 29-yard touchdown drive in overtime that clinched them game.

Ravens vs Steelers live streams in the US

In the US, Ravens vs Steelers is going to be broadcast on NBC, which are available on two of our favorite streaming services fuboTV and Sling TV. The game begins at 3:40 p.m. ET / 12:40 p.m. PT on Wednesday, Dec. 2.

Sling TV on the other hand, may be more affordable, but it still gets you four out of the five networks listed above (no CBS for Sling, or NFL RedZone).
