How To Watch NFL Live Streaming Free 2020 Online
Following a 100th season that lived up to all expectations and then some, the 2020/21 NFL season hasn’t disappointed so far by way of a sequel! Gravity-defying touchdown catches, bone-crunching hits, ice-cold Bill Belichick stares – it’s all here, and you can watch every minute. Read on for all the ways to catch an NFL live stream this week as we look forward to even more drama in game week 5.
Reigning Super Bowl champions the Kansas City Chiefs and star QB Pat Mahomes are favorites to repeat this February – and, having seen them bulldoze their way to a 4-0 record, you can certainly see why. Having dispatched both the Ravens and Patriots, the Raiders of Las Vegas head their way next.
AFC rivals the Ravens, who are led by last year’s league MVP Lamar Jackson, remain one of the other favorites for this year’s Championship. As do the 4-0 Seattle Seahawks, who have already claimed big name scalps of the Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots – will they be undone by the struggling Vikings?
Over in the NFC, the big pre-season talking was Tom Brady and his new team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brady got his first W under his belt on home turf over the Panthers and then followed that up in Denver and against the Chargers with further wins. Can you ever really bet against Tom Brady leading a team to an unlikely postseason run?
The other big team to watch, as always, are the New England Patriots. It’s a big season in Foxborough as the modern-day dynasty embarks on its first season since 2000 without TB12 on the roster, but they’ve already fallen to a few defeats so will be hoping to get back on track as they host the Broncos.
With so many unexpected twists and turns in the off-season – plus a crop of exciting rookies like Dallas WR CeeDee Lamb, Kansas City running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, and of course new Bengals franchise quarterback Joe Burrows to watch – we’re every bit as excited as you are for the start of the 2020/21 NFL season. Follow our guide below as we explain how to watch the NFL online and live stream every game this week as the action continues.
NFL games in the US are shown by a wide range of broadcasters and under an increasingly confusing number of monikers.
Featured games are those aired Thursday. Sunday and Monday nights as part of the expanded Monday Night Football brand and are shown on TV by NBC, Fox, ESPN and in a very small number of cases, the NFL Network.
Sunday afternoon’s traditional kick-offs get covered by CBS or Fox as before.
The best way to watch NFL games without cable
Therefore, for complete coverage of all nationally televised NFL games in the 2020/21 regular season without cable, you need access to Fox, CBS, NBC, ESPN and The NFL Network.
Of the many over-the-top streaming options, some will give you nearly all of the channels you need for complete coverage – but to our knowledge, only fuboTV currently offers them all.
Pricing starts from $64.99 a month, which is a darn sight cheaper than cable, and there’s even a FREE 7-day fuboTV trial you can take advantage of. One of the things we love about fubo is that it makes cancelling easy if you decide it’s not for you – and it’s easy to get started, too, thanks to a slick payment system that accepts internationally recognized payment platform PayPal as well as major credit and debit cards.
Now, read on to see what channels cover what games each week.
