NFL Streams: As the NFL reaches its fifth week, fans already have a better grasp of which teams will be Super Bowl competitors for the season. They are also figuring out which teams should start looking at the next draft class.
A matchup between the Los Angeles Rams and the Seattle Seahawks opens up Week 5 on Thursday Night Football. From there, we have some great duels – such as the Cincinnati Bengals trying to prove their worth against the Green Bay Packers. There is also the NFC West divisional clash between the San Francisco 49ers and the Arizona Cardinals.

Don’t forget, there is a morning game as well, with the New York Jets and the Atlanta Falcons flying and playing in London. We’ll be treated to watch NFL games all Sunday.
If you are among the fans wondering how to watch the action live if you don’t have cable or subscriptions to other streaming platforms, worry not. Here’s a complete guide to view the NFL’s Week 5 games.
Can you stream NFL Week 5 games for free on Reddit?
Not anymore, as Reddit has banned the NFL streams subreddit due to copyright infringement. They also did the same with NBA and MMA subreddits.
The r/nflstream subreddit was illegal by all accounts, so Reddit shut it down. It was seemingly a move the platform made itself without any notice from the NFL. Reddit released the following statement after it shut down the subreddit.
How to watch Week-5 games for free in the USA?
There are a few ways to stream NFL games in the USA without Reddit. The recent trend of viewers moving to online platforms has created new ways for fans to watch football games.
The first way to watch games if you’re a cable subscriber is on the channel’s website. You can watch Monday Night Football on the ESPN app, for example, or the Sunday Night Football through the NBC Sports app.
FOX/CBS games work the same way.
If you do not have cable, then you’ll have to look for other options. First, you have to check out which channel your team is playing on, and then discover a streaming platform where you can watch those specific channels.
Here are some streaming platform examples you may find the games:
- FuboTV: A seven-day free trial service that provides access to NFL Network programs like Good Morning Football, NFL Total Access and NFL GameDay. Get FuboTV 7-day free trial Now!

How can I stream NFL games live online if I don’t have a cable subscription?
There is a wide variety of options for people who would prefer to watch on their phone, tablet, or some other online-device:
NBC’s streaming service will give you access to Sunday night games and others aired on that network. You can get a seven-day free trial, followed by a $5 or $10 monthly charge. (The free version of Peacock does not include live sports.)
CBS’s streaming service will give you access to games aired on that network. You can get a one-month free trial, followed by a $6 monthly charge.
Hulu with Live TV
You can try the service free for a week. Once that’s up, you’ll pay $65 per month.
After a two-week trial, you can expect monthly charges of $65.
Dish Network’s Sling lower tiered “Orange” plan will run you $35 per month. Adding the more comprehensive “Blue” plan bumps the cost to $50-per-month. You’ll have a 7-day free trial first—and right now, the cord cutting service is dropping the first month’s bill to $10.
Formerly known as DirecTV Now and AT&T TVNow, AT&T’s streaming service will run you $70 per month and up. There is no longer a free trial option.
Disney’s bundle of Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ can be enjoyed for free for seven days, after which you’ll pay $13.99 per month for all three combined
This sports-focused cord cutting service carries broadcast networks in most markets. There’s a seven-day free trial, followed by monthly charges of $65-$80, depending on the channels you choose.

Can I watch NFL games on Amazon?
You’re getting closer to being able to do so, but not this week. Amazon Prime subscribers will be able to watch 11 games this year (including the Minnesota Vikings vs. New Orleans Saints on Christmas Day). The online retailer has struck a deal with Fox to air select Thursday night games. The first co-aired game occurs Oct. 8, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers facing the Chicago Bears. They’ll be featured in the Prime Video section and Amazon will also offer the NFL Network pregame show before each game at 7:30 p.m. ET.
If you don’t have Prime, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial.
Does the NFL offer any viewing packages to watch the games I want?
Three, in fact:
The NFL App will let you stream games that are being broadcast locally in your market on Sundays. If you want to watch an ‘out of market’ game, you’ve got two choices.
NFL Game Pass
There are couple hitches with this service. You can’t use it to watch live games, but you can watch anything once its main broadcast ends. There’s a seven-day free trial, after which you’re looking at a $100 charge per season.
NFL Sunday Ticket
DirecTV customers have access to it, but if you’re not a subscriber and live in an area where it’s not available, you can watch any NFL game live, online or on TV for $73.49 per month or $293.36 for the entire season.
NFL streams in the US
Looking at the NFL 2021-22 schedule, you can see that games will air on a wide range of services and channels, including old standbys like ESPN, NFL Network and your local FOX, NBC and CBS affiliates.
Just like last season, ESPN has Monday Night Football and NBC will have Sunday Night Football. CBS gets AFC games on Sunday afternoons, and FOX will have the NFC games. Amazon Prime Video has some Thursday Night Football games, while the NFL Network will continue to offer a bunch of games throughout the year.
So, that makes it really easy to recommend where cord-cutters should turn to watch the NFL season: Fubo TV. Built for all things sports, Fubo has all three of those local broadcasters, plus ESPN and NFL Network. That’s why it’s one of the best streaming services.
NFL streams in the UK
You’re going to want Sky Sports for watching NFL games in the U.K. The Sky Sports NFL channel (which will feature more than 100 live games this season) and Sky Sports Main Event are the primary destinations for your viewing pleasure.
Sky Sports NFL will pack a lot of content. Specifically, expect at least 5 live games per week, with “first-pick exclusive games … in the 6pm and 9pm slot every Sunday” (according to Sky) and every Thursday, Sunday and Monday Night Football game. It’s also getting NFL RedZone, and NFL Network programming, including Good Morning Football and Total Access.
Also expect documentaries “and other content” via NFL Films and NBC Sports, and original Sky Sports programming about the NFL.
If you’re an existing Sky customer, you can get all of that with the Sky Sports Complete Pack, for £39 per month.
If you’re not looking to spend that much, you can get a less comprehensive Sky Sports pass from Now TV. Daily, weekly and monthly passes range from £9.99 to £33.99.
NFL streams in Canada
Get in, folks, we’re going to Da Zone. Or to be more specific, Canadian football fans will need DAZN to watch the NFL 2021-22 season. DAZN is trying to get GamePass rights, but that has not been announced yet.
