How to stream all the Week 3 NFL action

Another week, another troubling story about New England Patriots receiver Antonio Brown. He’s still expected to suit up in Foxborough, Massachusets, against the sorry New York Jets, a team now on its third quarterback this season. With backup Trevor Siemian out for the season with a busted ankle and Sam Darnold down with mono, third-stringer Luke Falk will get the start. 

But the monster matchup for Week 3 kicks off first thing after church: Baltimore Ravens vs. Kansas City Chiefs. As QB Patrick Mahomes continues his transcendent ascent, counterpart Lamar Jackson has swiftly come into his own this season. During Baltimore’s 2-0 start, the second-year pro has shown the accuracy, pocket awareness, and top-end decision-making required to become a franchise QB.

Two other contests—Houston vs. Los Angeles Chargers and Los Angeles Rams vs. Cleveland—have all the makings of great, temperature-taking games. The Browns are a particularly hard read given the difference in their two previous games—an awful blowout loss to the Tennessee Titans followed by a good win over the Jets. Answers for Mayfield & Co. will arrive on Sunday night.

Here’s the big rundown, including these games and the rest of Week 3—plus everything you need to stream the NFL.

NFL Week 3 live stream

There are a number of options for watching the NFL on streaming platforms that carry Fox, CBS, ESPN, and NBC. However, consult a coverage map to see what game your regional channel will be playing.

If a game is not being carried in your area, the only option might be an NFL Sunday Ticket package.

1) Hulu with Live TV

Hulu with Live TV includes sports programming among its offerings, including ESPN and FS1, and as a subscriber to the service, you’ll get free access to Hulu’s sizable on-demand library. (Check out the full list of Hulu Live TV channels.)

2Sling TV

Sling TV provides two base channel package options, each priced at $25 per month. Sling Orange includes three ESPN channels, while Sling Blue includes sports channels like NFL Network, FS1 and FS2, NBCSN, and local channels. If you’re Team “Why Not Both,” Sling Orange + Blue combines the two for just $40 per month. Sports Extra: Sling Blue ($10 per month) also includes NFL RedZone.

Sling TV Latino is another Spanish-language package for $10 per month, including NBC Universo, History en Español, and—of import to soccer fans—four beIN SPORTS channels. (And choosing Sling TV Latino + Sling Orange for $30 per month gives you access to ESPN Deportes.) For more information, check out our guide to Sling TV channels and our Sling TV review.

How to use AirTV with Sling

AirTV solves one of the Sling’s biggest problems: The inability to receive all of your local channels. By purchasing a basic AirTV for $79.99 or the AirTV Player for $119.99, you can merge those local channels into your Sling TV, (or on your mobile device if you have the basic AirTV). As the Daily Dot wrote in its AirTV review, “it’s practically magic.”

The basic AirTV is a dual-tuner streaming device, while the AirTV Player is basically an upgraded Chromecast that has Netflix preinstalled. You’ll still need to own an HD antenna because even though AirTV gets you access to your local channels, it doesn’t actually physically show them to you.

But AirTV—which has no monthly fee—serves to strengthen one of Sling’s biggest weaknesses compared to other live streaming services like Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, and PlayStation Vue. All those services have plenty of local channels.

PlayStation Vue is a fantastic option for fans who already own a PlayStation console, but this streaming platform is available on a variety of devices. ESPN and FS1 are part of the Core package of channels, and the options increase at the Elite and Ultra levels.

5) NFL Sunday Ticket

NFL week 3 streaming NFLSundayTicket

 

NFL Sunday Ticket

Cost: $73.99 per month for four months, or one single payment of $293.96

There are two—and only two—ways of acquiring NFL Sunday Ticket without DirecTV. There’s NFLSundayTicket.TV, which costs $73.99 per month for four months. It’s everything you love NFL Sunday Ticket but online-only. You can stream from pretty much any device that connects to the internet (but only on one device at a time).

You can also upgrade to the NFLST.TV Max bundle for a total of $99 per month for four months or one single payment of $395.99. You can also add on NFL Game Pass, which allows you to watch replays of every game after they air, for $50 for the full season.

There’s another way to watch NFL Sunday Ticket without DirecTV: Amazon Prime. While you can’t pay for the package using Amazon Prime, you can at least watch all of the games on the service. To start, first download the NFL Sunday Ticket channel on Amazon Prime. It’s free. From there, you’ll just need to sign in with your subscription credentials.

College students can purchase NFL Sunday Ticket at a discounted price through NFLSundayTicket.TV U.
