Ravens vs. Browns Week 16: Time, TV Channel, Live stream, how to watch

Only two teams this season have managed to take down the AFC-leading Baltimore Ravens. Surprisingly, one of them is the Cleveland Browns. In Week 16, Lamar Jackson and the Ravens have a chance to avenge that loss. 

With a win, the Ravens will clinch a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. At 6-8, the Browns are on the fringe of being mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. If they pull off the upset Sunday, they keep their hopes alive. 

Cleveland defeated Baltimore in their first matchup this season 40-25. Since then, the Ravens have won 10 straight games and beat down playoff teams like the Texans, Patriots and Seahawks, among others. Cleveland is a respectable 4-3 at home this season, while Baltimore is 6-1 on the road.

Here's all the information you need to know to watch the division matchup.

Players to Watch

QB Lamar Jackson: The MVP frontrunner has been lighting up defenses all season, expect more of the same in Week 16. The Browns are middle of the pack defensively, but they're no match for Jackson's greatness. With 40 total touchdowns this season, expect him to tack on a few more Sunday. 

CB Marcus Peters: After being traded to Baltimore midway through the season, Peters has fit in beautifully with the Ravens defense. He's recorded five interceptions and three touchdowns this season and was just selected to his third Pro Bowl.  With Baker Mayfield slinging it (17 INT this season), there should be ample opportunity for Peters to make plays. 

RB Nick Chubb: Quietly leading the NFL in rushing this season (ever seen a Lamborghini commercial?), Nick Chubb faces the fifth-toughest rushing defense Sunday. Unstoppable force, meet immovable object.

Lamar Jackson works out with free agent wide receiver Antonio Brown

Lamar Jackson works out with free agent wide receiver Antonio Brown

Lamar Jackson created a buzz throughout the entire 2019 season with his play on the field. 

Recently, he’s created a buzz off the field, too. 

Jackson took pictures with, and was filmed throwing to, free agent wide receiver Antonio Brown earlier Wednesday. The videos and pictures floated across social media and initiated a bit of a stir.

Ravens wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown, who is cousins with Antonio Brown, was also attending the workouts. 

Antonio, who is 31, was cut by the Patriots after Week 2 last season. He is being investigated by the NFL for allegations of sexual assault against his trainer, Britney Taylor, who alleged that Antonio sexually assaulted her in 2017 and 2018. She also claims that in 2018, she was raped by Antonio. 

Antonio has denied all allegations against him and has countersued Taylor for defamation.

The link to the Ravens and Antonio Brown, a seven-time Pro Bowler, is a clear one, as the Ravens are widely expected to make at least one upgrade in their receiving corps in the NFL Draft later this month. 

While the workouts happened on Wednesday, they might not continue for much longer. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis issued a stay-at-home order, effective Thursday at midnight.

Mark Andrews both excited, and sad, about Hayden Hurst’s trade to Atlanta

Mark Andrews both excited, and sad, about Hayden Hurst’s trade to Atlanta

Mark Andrews is in a unique situation with his friend Hayden Hurst. 

He’s happy that Hurst will finally get his chance to be a No. 1 tight end in Atlanta and earn the targets he wasn’t able to receive in Baltimore.

There also won’t be the same relationship between Andrews and Hurst, and fellow tight end Nick Boyle, anymore. 

The three-headed monster was inseparable in the locker room, incredibly productive on the field and one of the brightest spots for the NFL’s best regular season team in 2019. Now, one-third of the group is gone. 

“I think, first of all, it was kind of a shock for me,” Andrews said Tuesday during a conference call. “And selfishly, Hayden being one of my best friends and being someone that I talk to every day and I'm super close with, I'm sad. I'm sad that I won't be able to have him next year, I won't be able to talk to him next year as much, but I'm also excited for him. I'm excited for him to get more of an opportunity with Atlanta.”

Hurst was shipped to Atlanta in mid-March to give the Ravens some much-needed draft capital. It also gave Hurst, a first-round pick in 2018, a chance to be a true No. 1 tight end threat.

The trade gave the Ravens the 55th overall pick in the NFL Draft later this month, as well as a fifth-round pick in exchange for Hurst and a fourth-round pick.

Last season, Hurst posted 349 yards receiving on 30 receptions with two touchdowns. Those numbers ranked fifth on the team in receptions and third in yards.

With Hurst out of the fold, Andrews, Marquise Brown and perhaps a few new offensive additions in the draft will have to pick up the load Hurst left behind.

“He's a great player,” Andrews said. “I love him to death, but it's exciting for him as well. But, firstly, I'm sad. I know Nick is sad. The three-headed monster kind of got broken up a little bit, but again, we're going to be just fine. Nick and I, we'll do our jobs, and then, obviously, we're going to find someone else to help us out.”
