You’ll want ESPN to stream Monday Night Football.
Hulu Live TV
Hulu Live TV is a great way to stream live TV, as it comes with access to Hulu’s massive library of on-demand content. You’ll be able to choose from movies, shows, and Hulu’s original programming, and keep up with what’s new each month. Hulu plans even include a bundle option where you can access Disney+ and ESPN+ along with Hulu.
Hulu Live TV’s sports coverage includes the full suite of ESPN channels (including ESPN2, ESPNews, ESPNU, and ESPN College Extra), FS1 and FS2), NBSCN, the Olympic Channel, and the Big Ten Network. Hulu’s also got you covered for news and entertainment in its nearly 70-channel package.

If you’re looking for a streamlined, cost-effective streaming package, check out Sling TV. It offers two basic cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each of which costs $30 per month. There’s also the third option of getting Sling Orange + Blue for just $45 per month. You’ll get more Sling TV channels by choosing Sling Blue, with its 40 channels including sports favorites like FS1 and NBCSN and cable mainstays like Food Network and Discovery Channel. But Sling Orange brings must-haves Disney Channel and ESPN as part of its package.
There’s also a Sports Extras option for Orange + Blue subscribers, with MLB Network, NBA TV, and NHL Network part of the plan. There’s also a Sports Extra add-on for the Sling Blue package, and another one for the Sling Orange package.
|Orange + Blue||$50|
FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans. It’s since evolved into a broadly-appealing option with entertainment and news options alongside its robust sports choices. It starts at $54.99 a month, and depending on the package, you can access as many as 180+ FuboTV channels. Fubo can entertain you with Bravo, IFC, MTV, and VH1 at even Fubo’s most basic tier.
The Fubo channel list still includes plenty of sports, including the Fubo Sports Network, which has original programming mixing sports and humor. Fubo added the ESPN suite of channels in an agreement that also brought ABC and the Disney Channel. That means you can stream Patriots vs Jets and all the Monday Night Football matches.
This season, unlike others, you ca stream Monday Night Football with Fubo. Now, pretty much every sports channel you could think of is available through Fubo, including BeIN Sports, CBS Sports Network, and TUDN.
For under $40 a month, Vidgo brings more than 60 English-language channels into its National English Package. Vidgo channels include ABC, Fox, the ESPN family of channels (including ESPN to stream Monday Night Football and ESPN Deportes), and NFL Network. It’s also one of the few streaming services that carries BeIN Sports. Like Fubo, it started out for streaming sports but carries a lot more now. There’s even a Social TV platform that allows you to chat with other Vidgo viewers about what you’re watching.
Vidgo has two Latino options featuring ESPN Deportes, Fox Deportes, and TyC sports at both levels. At the Plus level on the English side, you get NFL RedZone and all the Pac-12 Network regional options.

AT&T TV Now
If you’re already looking to AT&T for your wireless needs, you might consider AT&T TV Now to cover streaming for you. AT&T TV Now channels start with Plus and Max, which even include HBO. Then, AT&T plans expand from there, approaching cable selection and pricing with AT&T TV Now’s biggest packages. AT&T streaming also comes with Cloud DVR, letting you record up to 20 hours of TV per month.
At its most basic Plus tier, you can find sports staples like ESPN, ESPN2, and FS1. Considering that AT&TV TV Now plans include the loaded Ultimate and Premier tiers, as well as the Spanish-language Optimo Mas package, you can find whatever sports channel you’re seeking in at least one of the AT&T TV Now plans. You can stream ESPN with every AT&T TV Now package, save for Optimo Mas.

It even comes with a few Spanish-language channels like Telemundo and NBC Universo. YouTube add-ons include HBO Max, Showtime, and Starz. YouTube TV packages have some advantages over their competitors, including a generous DVR and multiple screens package.

Deeper sports cuts, like NBA TV, MLB Network, CBS Sports Network, and ESPNU are also part of the YouTube TV plan. For $10.99 more a month, upgrade to the Sports Plus plan to get NFL RedZone and six additional sports channels.
Preview: Bills vs. Patriots
For much of the last decade, a Week 16 game for the Patriots would be about securing home-field advantage. Now, the Patriots are out of the playoff picture entirely, and it’s the AFC East champion Bills looking to improve on its current No. 3 seed. A win over the Pats would allow the Bills to compete for the No. 2 spot currently occupied by a Steelers team that stopped a recent slide.
Last week, the Bills routed the Broncos 48-19 in a Saturday matchup; Josh Allen threw for three touchdowns and ran for another in the contest that wasn’t. Meanwhile, the Patriots dropped a divisional game to the Dolphins, 22-12, ensuring that they can’t finish above .500.
The Bills are 7-point road favorites, according to BetMGM (on Dec. 28), with an over-under of 46.5.
