This year is an odd one for baseball, with coronavirus-related delays causing the MLB to shorten the season from 162 games to just 60. If baseball seasons are usually marathons, 2020 will be a sprint, and it’s likely that this faster tempo will shape the strategies and performances of the various teams in each division. Early victories will be important for establishing momentum that will hopefully be enough to carry teams through the short season and into the playoffs.

Last season, the Rockies failed to make it to the postseason, while the Athletics were eliminated when they lost the 2019 American League Wild Card Game play-in to the Tampa Bay Rays. Colorado has only made it to the World Series one time in the team’s short history (the Rockies were formed as an expansion team in 1993), making them the clear underdog here. Nonetheless, having won four of their five games so far, the Rockies are off to a very strong start this year and the short 2020 season could have some surprising and unpredictable outcomes in store for players and fans.

If you don’t have a cable TV subscription that includes ESPN and you’re looking for a way to watch the 2020 MLB: Colorado Rockies vs. Oakland Athletics livestream, then you’ll need to sign up for ESPN+ . For $5 per month or $50 per year, you get full access to the Major League Baseball 2020 season along with a ton of other live events, analysis, interviews, exclusive shows, and much more. Looking for a bigger streaming package to help you cut the cord? This high-value bundle offer gets you ESPN+ along with Hulu and Disney+ for just $13 per month.

How to watch the free Chiefs vs. Ravens live stream (legally)
Mark Andrews of the Ravens puts his hands up on the football field.

It's Conference Championship Sunday in the 2024 NFL Playoffs. The first game will feature Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs traveling to M&T Bank Stadium to face Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship.

The Chiefs are playing in their sixth straight AFC Championship Game. The only team with more consecutive AFC title game appearances is the New England Patriots, with eight from 2011 to 2018. If Mahomes wins this game and then the Super Bowl, he will have a legitimate claim to be the second-greatest quarterback in NFL history. Meanwhile, Baltimore is making their first AFC Championship appearance since Jackson became the starter in 2018.

George Kittle of the San Francsico 49ers points his fingers up.

Sunday marks one of the best football days of the year. Two conference champions will be crowned in the 2024 NFL Playoffs. The NFC Championship features Brock Purdy and the San Francisco 49ers hosting Jared Goff and the Detroit Lions. Kickoff starts at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT on January 28. The game will air on Fox and feature the network's top broadcast team – Kevin Burkhardt (play-by-play), Greg Olsen (color), Erin Andrews (sideline), and Tom Rinaldi (sideline).

The Lions have a chance to make history. If they defeat the 49ers, Detroit will appear in their first Super Bowl in franchise history. The Lions won multiple NFL Championship Games in the 1950s before the creation of the Super Bowl. On the other sidelines, it's business as usual for the 49ers as they attempt to win the NFC Championship for the second time in five seasons.

Dallas Mavericks vs. Atlanta Hawks live stream: How to watch the NBA online
Luka Doncic walks down the court for the Mavericks.

Friday night will feature an exciting NBA game between two of the best young talents in the league. Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks head to State Farm Arena to face Dejounte Murray and the Atlanta Hawks. The game tips off on NBA TV at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on January 26.

Dallas and Atlanta are two teams heading in different directions. Dallas is currently a play-in team in the Western Conference. Although the Doncic and Kyrie Irving pairing has worked this year, Dallas needs to trade for another wing who can hit an outside shot and guard multiple positions. Meanwhile, Atlanta is below 500 and going nowhere fast. With the trade deadline a few weeks away, do not be surprised if Murray moves to a different team in February.
