The Ravens vs Bills is looking like the best match-up of this weekend’s Divisional Round games, with two of the NFL’s brightest starlets in Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen set to do battle on the East Coast. Both franchises got through the Wild Card Round in nail-biting fashion, and we’re fully expecting another serving of edge-of-your-seat action today. Read on as we explain how to get a Ravens vs Bills live stream and watch the NFL playoffs online wherever you are right now.
For all the talk of how red-hot the Bills are, it’s hard to shake the feeling that Baltimore is growing stronger by the week. Jackson buried his playoff choker tag with a special performance against the Titans last weekend, the highlight of a flashpoint-loaded game being his spectacular 48-yard slaloming touchdown run.
It was Jackson at his best, and he and his teammates should be walking on air after dominating Derrick Henry and breaking the hearts of their newfound rivals.
The build-up to this one has been dominated by talk of whether Jackson can lead the Ravens to victory with his arm, but he could barely have hoped for a better opponent than Buffalo this weekend, who allowed 21 rushing touchdowns in the regular season.
But on the other side of that is Josh Allen, the beating heart of what has arguably been the NFL’s most entertaining team this season. Allen also notched the first playoff win of his career last weekend – and the Bills’ first since 1995 – and we can’t wait to see him and Stefon Diggs pit their wits against this monstrous, Marcus Peters and Marlon Humphrey-led Ravens D.
This could be the most entertaining game of the weekend, so follow our guide below as we explain how to watch Ravens vs Bills online and get an NFL live stream from anywhere today.
How to watch Ravens vs Bills from outside your country
If you’ve mismatched a holiday or you’re away on business and you want to watch your country’s coverage from abroad, then you’ll need to use a VPN. This will help you dial in to a location back in your home country to avoid geo-blocks and regain access to the content and services you already pay for back home.
A VPN is generally perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location when the big game is on.

How to watch Bills vs Ravens: live stream NFL playoffs in Australia
If you live in Australia, you’re spoilt for choice as the big Bills vs Ravens Divisional Round game is being covered by a number of Aussie outlets – kick-off being scheduled for 12.15pm AEDT on Sunday.
100% FREE-TO-AIR channel 7Mate will be showing this game – so that’s obviously a great option for fans Down Under.
Even better, anyone located in Australia can also watch the channel absolutely free online. You just need to quickly create an account on its companion 7Plus streaming service and all that’s required is a name, verifiable email address, and Australia zip code.
It’s not the most elegant platform we’ve ever seen, but if you head there and click the ‘Live TV’ tab at kick-off time, the Bills vs Ravens game should be on. Its lack of future listings is particularly frustrating but, hey… free is free, right?
Not in Australia? Anyone out of the country at the moment will find that using a reliable VPN allows them to regain access to the 7Plus platform and other region-locked sites in Oz. We’ve tested this as of January 2021, and can confirm that the service is accessible – provided you quickly make an account as above.
The best way to watch NFL online in Australia
In general, Kayo Sports is our favourite streaming solution for cord-cutters Down Under – and it’s also offering a Bills vs Ravens live stream. In fact, it should be showing all the NFL games from now on, plus loads more sporting coverage from top-tier soccer (La Liga, Serie A, FA Cup) to US sports like the NBA and NHL.
The streaming service has a Basic and a Premium plan, with the difference being you can watch on two devices with the Basic plan for $25 per month and on three devices with the Premium plan for $35 per month.
The best news? Both plans come with a FREE 14-day trial, so if you’re looking just to watch a specific game or two you can cancel after the 14 days.
Plus, our latest testing reveals that Australian residents who’ve subscribed to Kayo can use the streaming service even if they’re abroad – our No.1 rated VPN offering 3-months FREE right now with an annual plan working brilliantly with the platform as of January 2021.
Alternatively, live-for-it NFL fans can sign up for an NFL Game Pass as it is also available in Australia, and even though it is marginally more expensive you have a much wider range of features.
Should I buy an NFL Game Pass?
Watching NFL online has never been easier thanks to the wide variety of streaming services now available. However, the league also has its own streaming service called the NFL Game Pass which allows die-hard football fans to watch every game.
It’s really geared towards international fans and that’s where it’s a great option. In most of the NFL’s main international markets, a Game Pass Pro subscription will get you access to every single regular season and playoff game live, plus the Super Bowl, and you also get the league’s live highlights show, RedZone. It costs £1.99 a week or £50 through July 2021 in the UK so if you’re a big fan who watches multiple games every week, it breaks down quite favourably.
As well as the UK and Ireland, the service is available in countries like Mexico, Germany and most of Europe, and Australia – with only ‘domestic markets’ the US and Canada missing out on the full-fat offering.
Instead, there’s a US and Canada-only Game Pass option available for $99 a a year that lets you watch commercial-free full game replays right after they’ve finished. Not the worst offer we’ve ever heard, but don’t get caught out – GamePass does not offer live NFL games in the US or Canada.
Should you decide to give Game Pass a shot, apps for Android and iOS mobile devices as well as on the likes of Chromecast, Apple TV, Roku, PS4, and more – plus you can obviously watch on your laptop or desktop computer through a browser.
The only caveat for non-domestic markets (e.g. the UK) are that some games are subject to blackout restrictions due to deals with local pay TV providers (e.g. Sky).
