Who plays on ‘Monday Night Football’ tonight? Time, TV channel, schedule for NFL Week 14
Baker Mayfield and the Browns get an opportunity to keep cooking in front of a national audience on Week 14’s “Monday Night Football.”
Mayfield has featured nationally in plenty of commercials this season, but it’ll only be Cleveland’s second appearance in prime time despite a 9-3 record. The Browns will host Lamar Jackson and the Ravens (7-5) in a classic AFC North rivalry between the team that once was the Browns franchise and the current Browns.
In Week 13, Mayfield threw for four touchdowns in the first half as Cleveland put up a franchise-record 38 points before the break against the Titans. It could be a bit tougher against a strong Baltimore defense, but if Mayfield keeps playing like this with Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt pounding the rock, the Browns could be a tough out in the postseason.
Below is more about the matchup, plus everything to know about how to watch “Monday Night Football.”
