The reigning champion Kansas City Chiefs will take on the Baltimore Ravens on Monday to wrap up Week 3 of the 2020 NFL season at M&T Bank Stadium. The game will kick off at 8:15 p.m. ET and will be aired on ESPN.
Baltimore and Kansas City are entering this matchup unbeaten at 2-0 and among the favorites to reach the Super Bowl, but the Ravens have looked like the more dominant team so far. The Ravens have limited opponents to a league-low 11 points per game and rank third in points per game (35.5) on offense. Lamar Jackson has excelled passing the football and hasn’t needed to run the ball nearly as much as he did in 2019.
The Chiefs might’ve improved their formidable offense by adding rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire through the 2020 NFL Draft, but struggled to put points on the board against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2. Baltimore is every bit as good defensively and should be able to pressure to Patrick Mahomes, who has yet to have an amazing performance in 2020.
If you can’t watch this game on TV, you have the option to stream the matchup on WatchESPN, which requires a cable log-in. If you don’t have cable, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream Monday Night Football this week.
The game is often a little bit delayed on live streams, but usually it’s only between 30 and 60 seconds behind the TV broadcast. That can impact you if you’re on Twitter during the game, but otherwise it’s an easy option.
The Ravens are favored by 3.5 points on DraftKings Sportsbook, but this game could go either way. Bettors favor the defending champs to come out on top though, despite how shaky they’ve looked at times this season. I like Kansas City against the spread, but Baltimore’s superior defense makes me think betting on the under for total points (53.5) seem like the right move. I don’t foresee another barn burner like the 33-28 game Kansas City won against Baltimore at Arrowhead Stadium in 2019.
