The Baltimore Ravens look nothing like the team that won the Super Bowl following the 2012 NFL season, but they are still in the playoff race this year. However, they have to finish strong, and their opponents this week is a Detroit Lions team that is struggling to hold on to their small lead in the NFC North. According to ESPN on Dec. 16, if the Lions lose tonight, they will lose the NFC North lead to the Chicago Bears. Here is how fans can follow the Baltimore Ravens vs. Detroit Lions live stream for tonight’s Monday Night Football game.

While Detroit remains in danger of losing the NFC North lead with a loss tonight, they are also in danger of losing out on any kind of wild card hopes as well. With a loss tonight, they would be in a situation where they have to win their division or sit at home in the playoffs. With Chicago playing so well right now, a loss tonight could put the Lions in a dangerous position.
Baltimore, on the other hand, plays in the AFC, where only one team has locked up a wild card spot and six teams are within a game or two of taking the second. A win could keep them in contention for the AFC North, but a loss wouldn’t hurt their playoff hopes as bad as a Lions’ loss would hurt Detroit. However, a win tonight could move Baltimore into a tie for that second wild card with two games remaining.
The Baltimore Ravens vs. Detroit Lions live stream kicks off at 8:30 p.m. EST.
