Sunday Night Football 2019: Where to Watch New England Patriots vs. Baltimore Ravens, TV Channel, Live Stream, Odds

The New England Patriots travel to Baltimore on Sunday Night Football looking to extend their undefeated streak to nine games.

The reigning Super Bowl champions are 8-0 for only the third time in franchise history after 2007 and 2015 and look a shoo-in to secure top spot in the AFC.

The Patriots boast the best scoring offense and the best defense in the NFL and have been ominously ruthless so far this season.

In the home win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 8, the Patriots' defense had three takeaways in the first half, taking the turnover differential for the season to +17—tied for the fifth-highest margin through the first game of a season since 1970.

New England also has the third-highest point differential at this stage of the season in the history of the NFL and it has looked as close to an unstoppable force as any team Bill Belichick has assembled during his tenure in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

If there is one element that can somewhat take the shine off New England's blistering start is the strength of the teams it has faced so far.

The Patriots have the joint-second easiest schedule in the NFL—as calculated by their opponents' combined winning percentage last year—and the Buffalo Bills are the only team with a record above .500 they have played so far.

The six teams the Patriots have faced in the other seven games—they have played the New York Jets twice—have a combined 9-35 record.

While it would be doing New England a disservice to suggest an easy schedule is the only reason they have gone 8-0, it will be intriguing to see how the Patriots fare against the Ravens, who are by far the best team they have come across so far this year.

Baltimore is top of the AFC North with a 5-2 record and have the second-best offense in the league behind the Patriots—they have scored 30.6 points per game to New England's 31.3—and lead the league with 204.1 rushing yards.

Throughout his career, Belichick has made a habit of nullifying the young quarterbacks he's come up against.

This season alone, Giants' rookie signal caller Daniel Jones has thrown three picks each against the Patriots and his second-year counterparts haven't fared much better.

Dolphins' quarterback Josh Rosen threw one interception as did Browns' signal caller Baker Mayfield, while Josh Allen was picked off three times when the Bills lost to the Patriots. Sam Darnold, meanwhile, complained of "seeing ghosts" after throwing four interceptions as the Jets came unstuck against New England two weeks ago.

Belichick and the Patriots defense come up another second-year quarterback on Sunday in the shape of Lamar Jackson.

In his first season as a starter, the 22-year-old has thrown for 1,650 yards, 11 touchdown passes and five interceptions while completing 63.3 percent of his passes. The epitome of a dual-threat quarterback, Jackson has already rushed for 100 yards in three games this season, the joint-most in NFL history.

Jackson, however, could find life harder against a Patriots defense that ranks fourth in the country for rushing yards allowed, incidentally one place below Baltimore.

The Ravens come off a bye in Week 8, whose significance could be two-fold. Beyond the obvious benefits of having an extra week to recover and prepare for the game, Baltimore has an outstanding record after bye weeks under coach John Harbaugh, winning six and losing twice since 2011—the joint-best record in the NFL.

Here's all you need to know ahead of Sunday.
