The Texans vs Ravens live stream is coming up and it will see if Baltimore (13-4) can carry their regular season dominance through the playoffs and all the way to Super Bowl 2024. Standing in their way is C.J. Stroud and the (10-7) Houston Texans. Last week, Stroud and company showed that they were playoff-ready with a 45-14 blowout victory over the Browns. Now, they’ll be put to the test against the NFL's best in this NFL live stream

There was no better way for rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud to announce his playoff presence with authority than the way he did in the Wild Card round. In his first postseason game, the second-overall pick threw for 274 yards on 16-of-21 passing with three touchdowns while posting a near-perfect passer rating of 157.2. In the win, the 22-year-old became the youngest NFL quarterback ever to win a playoff game. Now he looks to be the youngest to win two.

While Stroud’s postseason resume is off to a good start, Ravens’ quarterback Lamar Jackson is looking to add to his. In Jackson's six seasons in the league, he has earned three Pro Bowl selections, two All-Pro nods and (for now) one MVP award. Despite all those accolades, he’s just (1-3) in the playoffs and never posted a passer rating higher than 79 in any of those four starts.

This season, Jackson is the favorite to take home his second MVP award. He finished the year with the fourth-highest quarterback rating (64.5) and the third-highest passer rating (102.7).

Defensively, this game has two of the best units in the league trying to contain Jackson and Stroud. In their week 1 game, the Texans sacked Jackson four times while limiting him to some of his worst numbers on the season. The Ravens, however, are bringing the best overall defense in the league into this game. Baltimore leads the NFL in the fewest points allowed per game (16.5), lowest passer rating allowed (74.6) and most sacks (60).

DraftKings has the Ravens as HUGE 10-point favorites against the Texans. The over-under is 44. This game will mark the second meeting between these two teams this season as they met all the way back in Week 1. The Ravens took that game 25-9, scoring 15 points in the second quarter to take control.
