The thin Oakland Raiders travel to the under-performing Minnesota Vikings in a high-stakes Week 3 matchup on Sunday. It’s a classic NFL rivalry that recalls cold memories of Super Bowl XI—and more recently, that almost-was Super Bowl in 2000 when both lost on Championship Sunday to the Giants and Ravens, respectively, depriving us of a Rich Gannon vs. Daunte Culpepper quarterback duel.
Minnesota has all the tools of a Super Bowl contender, but under Kirk Cousins has always faltered in big games. Last week at Green Bay, the Vikings sputtered on offense and despite a 21-16 final score, never seemed to be in it. Oakland has less talent but does seem like an inspired lot. Now on the other side of the Antonio Brown saga, the team has responded with plucky performances in two games where it’s been an underdog. I’m a Derek Carr truther and he’s doing his part to guide his young team into relevance. But if the Raiders get blown out again, the locker room may start to tune-out the leadership.

Oakland Raiders vs. Minnesota Vikings live stream: How to watch NFL online
- Cost: $44.99 per month
- Hulu devices: Roku, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire Stick and Fire TV, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Switch, and iOS and Android devices
- Hulu local channels: ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, the CW (check your local availability here)
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.)
2) Sling TV
- Cost: $25-$40 per month (40% off first month)
- Sling TV devices: Amazon Fire TVs, Android Fire Stick, Apple TV, Android TV, Roku, Xbox One, Google Chromecast, Oculus Go, and iOS and Android devices
- Sling TV local channels: NBC, Fox (check your local availability here)
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, NBCSN, and FS1—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.
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.
- Cost: $54.99 per month
- FuboTV devices: Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Android TV, iOS and Android devices
- FuboTV local channels: Fox, NBC, CBS (check local availability here)
If you’re a big-time sports fan, FuboTV is your best streaming service option. If you love international soccer and you’re a Spanish speaker, FuboTV also offers various add-on packages, including Fubo Latino and Fubo Português. FuboTV’s basic plan showcases nearly 100 channels and includes NFL Network. At $54.99 per month, you’ll also get FS1, FS2, NBCSN, NBA TV, Big Ten Network, Pac 12 Network, BeIn Sports, and CBS Sports Network, along with premium channels like FX/FXX/FXM. The only notable omission for sports fans is ESPN. You can add Fubo’s Sports Plus package for an additional $8.99 per month, which allows you to stream NFL RedZone, (Here’s the complete FuboTV channels list.)
- Cost: $44.99-$79.99 per month
- PlayStation Vue devices: PlayStation 3 and 4, Roku, Amazon Fire, Google Chromecast, Kodi, iOS and Android devices
- PlayStation Vue local channels: NBC, Fox, ABC, CBS (enter your ZIP code here to check your availability)
If you’d like to watch live NFL games directly from your PS4, PlayStation Vue is your best bet. PlayStation also works with streaming devices like Roku and Amazon Fire products, but what separates PlayStation from the rest of the streaming services is that it’s also compatible with Kodi. No matter how you stream, you’ll get to choose from four tiers of channels—all but the cheapest include NFL Network. From there, you can also add NFL RedZone as part of the $10-per-month Sports Pack, which also unlocks ESPN Bases Loaded, ESPN Classic, Longhorn Network, Outside TV, and NBCUniversal regional sports networks. You can see the full list of PlayStation Vue channels here. Two other great perks: You can stream on up to five devices at once, and there’s also unlimited cloud DVR.
5) 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.
Raiders vs Vikings: Why it matters
Are Minnesota and Oakland who we thought they were? Both sides better hope not. We’ve seen this movie: The Raiders are a lit match away from being a dumpster fire, and the Vikings are going to waste a loaded roster on a limited signal-caller who won’t win a thing. At least Case Keenum played with some guts.
But, as the great Chris Berman told us for years, that’s why they play the game.
And for the Vikings, there’s a lot to love. Dalvin Cook, after two years of injury-plagued seasons, looks like the most dominant back in the NFL. He’s like 2017 Todd Gurley: a battering ram off the line of scrimmage, gets downhill fast, and has the jets to break away. He can lead the league in rushing and this offense is built around him. Cousins just needs to make 10 throws a game to get to 24 points. If the Vikings want to turn a corner they should blow out the Raiders, a team that has pieces but seems too young to contend in 2019.
But unlike the Vikings, the Raiders have played inspired this season. Coach Jon Gruden’s reclamation project might just work if he keeps showing improvement. In the NFL there are three types of QBs: Those who can win a Super Bowl, those who can’t, and those who might. Carr has the drive and accuracy to be special, he’s just a little late on his timing and, as a result, misses throws that the great ones don’t shy from. That 12-4 season under Jack Del Rio seems like a lifetime ago; for Carr, 2019 is about stealing some upset wins and showing you’re the franchise QB Gruden thought he was inheriting when he took over.
We should have clarity on the matter Sunday.
