  • How to Watch Out-of-Market Games
  • Sunday Night Football
  • Thursday Night Football
  • Monday Night Football
  • Mobile-Only Streaming Options (only nationally aired games)


Sunday Afternoon Games

TV: CBS or FOX

Where you live will determine what games will air locally on these national channels. And it's a safe bet you will get at least 1 if not 2 games that have match-ups with your location's corresponding teams. If you are a fan of another team that isn't regionally celebrated, you will seriously want to consider NFL Sunday Ticket or Game Pass (details in next section).

506Sports does a great job of showing which NFL games will air on Sunday afternoon for you, depending upon your location. Also includes channels and times.

Streaming Options:
FOX Sports Live, FOX Sports GO app
*CBS All Access, CBS Sports Mobile apps

Login with your cable credentials to gain access to the live stream of all games airing locally on FOX at no additional cost.

For CBS, their All Access service is a standalone streaming subscription that runs $5.99/month.


Watching Out-of-Market Games

DirecTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket. This premium subscription allows you to watch or stream every single out-of-market NFL game, for any team. And it comes with options. You can either add NFL Sunday Ticket to your DirecTV cable package. Or you can get Sunday Ticket as a standalone streaming service.

NFL Game Pass. This option is a little different. You can live stream every out-of-market preseason game. But you won’t be able to live stream regular season games (unless you live outside the U.S.). Instead they provide a full replay of every single NFL game shortly after each game ends, regardless of the market.


Sunday Night Football

TV: NBC

NBC is the home of Sunday Night Football. They air a nationally televised game every Sunday night of the regular season, with the exception of an additional Thursday night game to begin the season and the Thanksgiving night game.

Sunday Night Football Schedule & Live Streams

Streaming Options:
NBC Sports Live, NBC Sports app

Login with your cable credentials to gain live stream access.


Thursday Night Football

TV: NFL Network, FOX, Amazon Prime and Twitch

NFL Network will be airing every single Thursday Night game, with Fox producing every game and broadcasting 11 of those games. Amazon Prime and Twitch will be simulcasting all games that FOX airs.

Thursday Night Football Schedule & Live Streams

Streaming Options:
NFL Network, FOX Sports GO, Amazon Prime, Twitch

You will need to login with cable credentials for access to NFL Network and Fox Sports Go. Amazon Prime requires a subscription to Prime. Though Twitch is a completely free stream.


Monday Night Football

TV: ESPN

Look no further than ESPN for all your Monday Night Football watching. Of course if you don't have cable, you won't be able to get ESPN through a digital antenna, so be aware of that. But ESPN does come standard with most every basic cable package.

Monday Night Football Schedule & Live Streams

Streaming Options:
Watch ESPN, ESPN app


Mobile-Only Streaming Options (only nationally aired games)

NFL Mobile and Yahoo Sports! both offer live streams for any nationally aired NFL game. Best part, its completely free to anyone without the need of any subscription.

There are restrictions however - you can only watch the games from your mobile device (no sending the feed to your TV) and for select games you have to use your cell data as wifi will be disabled. So keep that in mind if you don’t have unlimited data.
