You’ll need a subscription to Sling TV to get access to all the games, but it’s affordable and you can sign up just for the season. You will need to get both the Orange and Blue plans to make this work in your favor as games are played on stations offered in both packages. At $40 a month it may be cheaper than subscribing to cable and with its seven-day free trial, you’ll be able to see if Sling TV is right for you.

Games will be played on Sling TV’s Fox, NBC, ESPN and NFL Network. The only thing you will be missing is games that are played on CBS as Sling TV doesn’t offer this channel, but you will get the majority of games through this streaming service.

Sling TV is offered through Roku and is available as an App for most mobile devices, making it pretty easy to access no matter where you are.

As an added option you can add the NFL RedZone to your Sling TV service. RedZone hops between all the live games that are airing, giving you coverage of everything football going on at the moment. This an extra $5 a month so you’ll have to decide if you want this type of NFL coverage when you sign up.
