The Steelers vs Ravens live stream is starting soon, and it has two teams with slim playoff chances looking to keep whatever hope they have alive. Both Pittsburgh and Baltimore will look to this NFL live stream as a way to help their odds at a postseason appearance.

The Steelers (8-7-1) are coming off last Monday night’s emotional 26-14 win over the Browns. The game marked what will likely be Ben Roethlisberger’s last game at Heinz Field. The 39-year-old two-time Super Bowl Champion seems set to retire at the end of this season. 

Pittsburgh's signal caller was able to enjoy walking off his home field much thanks to their dynamic running game led by rookie Najee Harris. The Alabama product ran for 188 yards on 28 carries including a 37-yard touchdown run that capped off the Steelers’ scoring. 

The Ravens’ (8-8) playoff hopes are also alive, but their chances are even more microscopic than the Steelers. Baltimore needs to win Sunday, then have the Colts, Dolphins and Chargers all lose this week. So, to quote the great Lloyd Christmas, “You’re telling me there’s a chance!” At the very least, a win Sunday would snap their five-game losing streak.

Baltimore finds themselves in this scenario thanks mostly to a bevy of injuries this season. Before the year, they lost running backs J.K. Dobbins to a torn ACL as well as Gus Edwards to a knee injury. Most recently quarterback and former MVP, Lamar Jackson suffered an ankle injury causing him to miss the last three games. Jackson has again been ruled out for this week meaning Tyler Huntley will make his third straight start and fourth on the season.  

The Ravens are currently 3-point favorites against the Steelers. The over/under is 41.

Steelers vs Ravens live streams in the US

In the U.S., the Steelers vs Ravens live stream is going to be broadcast on CBS, which is available with most cable packages and on one of our favorite streaming services: fuboTV

The game starts at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT Sunday (Jan. 9)

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. Who needs cable? Not Fubo subscribers. It's got a 7-day free trial so you don't need to pay up front.

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.

NFL Sunday Ticket: This game is included in NFL Sunday Ticket, which is available even if you don't have DirecTV. For more details check out our guide on How to get NFL Sunday Ticket without DirecTV.
