Ravens vs Texans channel, start time

Ravens vs Texans is scheduled for 4:25 p.m. ET / 1:25 p.m. PT today (Sunday, Sept. 20). It's on CBS as part of the 2020 NFL season's week 2.

It's almost time for the Ravens vs Texans live stream of the game between the AFC teams in week 2 of the 2020 NFL season. The Ravens are coming off a beatdown of the Browns, and we're wondering if they're going to issue another one, to the Texans who still smarting from a bad loss at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Baltimore is favored in this match-up, though Houston will have home field advantage. Even without many fans in attendance, due to social distancing restrictions, the Texans should get a boost from playing at home.

The Ravens are a strong Super Bowl contender, led by quarterback Lamar Jackson, who notched the highest passing rating in week 1 and also ran for 79 yards. He's already making a case to win back-to-back MVP honors. Baltimore's suffocating defense will make life difficult for Texans QB Deshaun Watson. 

Meanwhile, the Texans' defense will have to find a way to slow down Jackson, as well as running backs Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins. On offense, Watson will do what he can to evade Baltimore's pass rush and get the ball to Marquise Brown, who had five receptions for 101 yards against the Chiefs.

Here's everything you need to know about how to watch the Ravens vs Texans game.
