The Carolina Panthers are going to play rest of the season without Cam Newton. The Green Bay Packers have Aaron Rodgers in his prime. That’s almost all the analysis you need.
The Panthers placed Newton on injured reserve on Tuesday, effectively ending his season. This news comes as Carolina heads to Lambeau Field to face what might be their stiffest challenge of the year in the Packers.
Last week, the Packers looked very mortal in a surprise loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. Green Bay fans are hoping that uncharacteristic game was just a bump in the road. With the stellar play of Christian McCaffrey in Carolina, the Packers will have to get back to form if they want to pick up a win and get things back on track.
Here’s everything you need to know to live stream Packers vs. Panthers, including what to watch for on the field.

3) Sling TV
- Cost: $25-$40 per month (40% off first month)

Both Sling Blue ($25 per month) or Sling Orange + Blue ($40 per month) include NFL Network and a number of sports channels—like three ESPN channels and NBCSN—and it’s still a nice perk that Sling subscribers can order a la carte packages. Sling TV also offers a special Latino package for bilingual viewers. Sling TV is currently offering a deal where you can subscribe for 40% off the regular price for the first month of your subscription. That means Sling Blue would cost $15, and Sling Orange + Blue would cost $25. (Here’s a complete guide to Sling TV channels and our Sling TV review.)
For $10 extra per month, you can get NFL RedZone via the Sling Blue Sports Extra package.
Unfortunately, due to a contract dispute, as of Sept. 26, Sling no longer carries Fox, FS1, and FS2. But there is a workaround.
How to use AirTV with Sling
AirTV solves one of 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.” While select football games are no longer on Sling after its contract impasse with FOX—which for now means no FOX, FS1, or FS2 via Sling—you can still catch the Fox telecasts with AirTV.
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.
While select NFL and college football games (on FOX, FS1, and FS2) are no longer on Sling, you can still catch FOX games with AirTV.
4) YouTube TV
- Cost: $50 per month
- YouTube TV devices: Google Chromecast, Roku, Apple TV, Android TV, Xbox One, iOS and Android devices
- YouTube TV local channels: NBC, CBS, Fox, ABC, the CW (enter your ZIP code here to check your availability)
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.
Green Bay Packers vs. Carolina Panthers: Why it matters
Though both of these teams are explosive on offense, the Packers are far more versatile than the Panthers. Backup quarterback Kyle Allen has been effective enough in Carolina, but the team has dipped to 21st in Offensive DVOA with him under center. The only sure path to victory for the Panthers involves lots and lots of Christian McCaffrey, and he has had such a dominant season that this has worked out for the most part, hiding this squad’s weaknesses.
Putting last week aside, the Packers have been incredibly dynamic on offense. While Aaron Rodgers is back to his old self, making his subpar receiving corps look like Pro Bowlers, Aaron Jones’ running attack has dominated opponents some weeks. This team has a number of ways it can beat you.
Though the Packers started out the year with a few strong defensive performances, it has actually been the Panthers who have looked better on D in recent weeks. Players like Shaq Thompson and Donte Jackson have really stepped up in Carolina, turning this unit into a top ten defense. Last week’s four sacks and two picks has become par for the course with this tough team.
There is a lot to like about the Panthers. Kyle Allen connects with D.J. Moore enough and the defense generates pressure enough to allow Christian McCaffrey to win games. Ron Rivera is coaching well, taking the kind of calculated risks that earned him the nickname “Riverboat Ron.” This looks like a wild card team that could nip at the Saints heels right up to the end of the season.
In this particular game, however, we are going side with Aaron Rodgers. Before his uncharacteristically bad Week 9, the Packers’ new offense was allowing Rodgers to play some of the best football of his career. Look for the future Hall of Famer to get back on track this week. Even if McCaffrey has one of his 150-yard, three-touchdown days, the Pack can still win this game.
