Lions vs. Texans Live Free Reddit Streams| How To watch From Anywhere​


1606409682229.png



After a dismal start to the season under former coach Bill O’Brien, Houston Texans are finding some consistency under interim-coach Romeo Crennel. Deshaun Watson and Co. have won three of their last six games and will start as favorites in Week 12. Watson will rely on wide receivers Brandin Cooks, Will Fuller and Jordan Atkins for offensive support against the Lions. Week 12 opens with a Thanksgiving Day doubleheader starting with the Texans and Lions at 12:30 p.m. ET

Matt Patricia’s Detroit Lions gear up for a crunch Thanksgiving Day clash against Deshaun Watson-led Houston Texans this Thursday. The home team suffered an embarrassing 20-0 loss at the hands of Carolina Panthers last weekend. They will look to come back strong with an impressive display against the Texans in front of home fans.


The likes of JJ Watt, Zack Cunningham and Justin Reid will be kept busy by the shifty Matthew Stafford on Thursday. It will take a firm overall performance from the Texans to return home with a win.


Here's how to watch all the Turkey Day football action, as well as the rest of the NFL season, without cable.






Despite sporadic COVID-19 outbreaks throughout the league and a handful of teams having their schedule adjusted as a result, the 2020 NFL season has remained largely on track.

Thanksgiving Day NFL Football Schedule:​


Date: Thursday, Nov. 26 | Time: 12:30 p.m. ET


Location: Ford Field (Detroit, Michigan)


TV: CBS | Stream: CBS All Access


Follow: CBS Sports App


Watch Live: Live Stream






After 11 weeks, the Steelers are the lone undefeated team after blowing out the Jaguars on Sunday. The Chiefs beat the Raiders Sunday night to stay one game back of Pittsburgh. Four teams sit at 7-3 in the AFC playoff race: the idle Bills, the Browns after a rainy win against the Eagles, the Colts after an OT win against the Packers and the Titans after an OT win against the Ravens. In the NFC, the Saints moved to 8-2 without Drew Brees and the Seahawks stayed a game back after their Thursday night win against the Cardinals but remain tied for the NFC West division lead after the Rams win over the Bucs on Monday Night Football. Despite their loss on Sunday, the Eagles maintained their grip on first place in the lackluster NFC East with a 3-6-1 record while the Jets remain the last winless team.


How can I watch the NFL without cable?


You can stream the 2020 NFL season, no cable required, on any live-TV streaming service that carries channels with live games. Numerous such services offer broadcast networks like CBS, NBC and Fox as well as ESPN, the NFL Network and NFL RedZone. Exact channels may also vary based on where you live, but the best services for NFL fans are YouTube TV and FuboTV.


You can also watch the Thanksgiving action, as well as other nationally televised games, on the Yahoo Sports or NFL apps. Watch Online Here Click Now


Thursday Night Football -- with the exception of the Thanksgiving games -- is also available to stream on Amazon Prime Video (so long as you subscribe to Amazon Prime), Twitch or in the Yahoo Sports or NFL apps. Fox and the NFL Network broadcast Thursday Night Football games as well.


For those looking for a different experience, Fox will be streaming its Thursday night games in 4K on FuboTV (as well as offering the 4K feed on certain cable and satellite providers). Amazon, meanwhile, will be adding the option to choose from a variety of different announcers in its Prime Video app, so you have options just in case Fox's Joe Buck and Troy Aikman aren't to your liking.

Sling TV








It's complicated, but Sling offers Fox, NBC, NFL Network, RedZone and ESPN






Sling TV splits its live NFL options across its $30-a-month Blue plan and $30-a-month Orange plan, which forces NFL fans into a tricky choice or encourages them to spring for both at $45 a month. Sling Blue includes the NFL Network, NBC and Fox as well as the option to add RedZone through the Sports Extra add-on for $10 per month. Sling Orange includes ESPN.


Sling TV doesn't offer CBS, but its packages are discounted by $10 for the first month. Enter your address here to see which local channels are available where you live.

CBS All Access





CBS All Access costs $6 per month and will let you watch the games being broadcast on your local CBS station on Sundays if you live in one of these 206 markets where the service offers live TV. It makes for a good add-on for Sling TV subscribers, who don't get CBS.

All of the services above offer free trials, allow you to cancel anytime and require a solid internet connection. Looking for more information? Check out our massive streaming services guide.


As mentioned above, the NFL will also once again stream 11 games live on Amazon Prime Video and Twitch. The full list of remaining dates and games for that platform is:

  • Dec. 3: Dallas Cowboys at Baltimore Ravens​
  • Dec. 10: New England Patriots at Los Angeles Rams​
  • Dec. 17: Los Angeles Chargers at Las Vegas Raiders​
  • Dec. 25: Minnesota Vikings at New Orleans Saints (Note: this Christmas Day matchup is on a Friday.)​

Finally, cord-cutters can receive free local CBS, Fox and NBC broadcasts using an over-the-air antenna.


When did the NFL season start?


The NFL regular season began on Thursday, Sept. 10, with the Houston Texans visiting the Kansas City Chiefs.


Where are games being played?


The current plan is for teams to play their games as scheduled in their respective home stadiums.


Are fans allowed in?


There is no single answer, with some teams allowing fans and some not.


The Chiefs, for example, hosted their home opener on Sept. 10 with 15,895 fans in attendance, 21% of Arrowhead's capacity.


Other teams, including the Tennessee Titans and Chicago Bears, hosted their respective home openers without fans in the stands in Week 2. This so far has been a team-by-team, city-by-city situation that is subject to change throughout the season.


Best for everything NFL Week 11: YouTube TV


Last year our streaming service pick for NFL fans was PlayStation Vue at $55 a month, but Sony shut down its service earlier this year. That leaves cord-cutters with two more expensive options.


At $65 per month each, a FuboTV Family plan and regular YouTube TV subscription check all the NFL channel boxes. Local channels CBS, NBC and Fox are included in many markets, as are ESPN and the NFL Network, so you can watch Monday night, Thursday night and Sunday night.


Want RedZone for following your fantasy team? That’s available on either service as part of an add-on for an extra $11 per month. YouTube TV users can add the Sports Plus add-on by clicking on your profile and going to Settings, then the Membership tab. FuboTV users can go into My Profile and choose Manage Add-ons for its Sports Plus offering.


Both YouTube TV and FuboTV’s Family plan allow for three simultaneous streams, with YouTube offering unlimited cloud DVR and FuboTV offering 500 hours of storage. The two services are widely available too, with apps on iOS and Android, the web and on TVs through Roku, Chromecast, Android TV, Apple TV and Fire TV.


If we had to choose between the two, we’d recommend YouTube TV overall. While FuboTV does get points for broadcasting the Fox Thursday night games in 4K, YouTube TV has access to Turner channels like TNT, TBS and CNN, as well as PBS, and a superior DVR.


The budget alternative for NFC fans in big cities: Sling Blue


Those looking to save some cash might want to check out Sling Blue for $30 a month. While it lacks ESPN, meaning you’ll miss out on Monday Night Football, in select markets you’ll be able to get Fox and NBC. The catch is that those markets are mainly in big cities, so if you live outside one of those areas, Sling Blue might not be for you.


The NFL and Dish agreement during Week 10 restored the NFL Network to the Sling Blue package while allowing sports fans to add RedZone through the company’s $10 per month Sports Extra add-on.


Fox, of course, broadcasts most NFC and Thursday night games (with the others on NFL Network), while NBC has Sunday Night Football. CBS, which broadcasts the bulk of AFC games, isn’t included on Sling at all. Of course, an antenna can fill those local channel gaps.


Budget alternatives: CBS All Access, Locast or an antenna


There are some apps that offer CBS’ slate of Sunday AFC games live, including CBS All Access for $6 per month. Depending on where you live, however, your local CBS station (and those NFL games) might not be available. CBS offers live streaming services in many markets; you can check for yourself if your area has live CBS streaming here.


Locast, meanwhile, is 100% free. It’s currently offered in only 23 cities, however, and not all will have CBS, Fox and NBC. And as we mentioned above, an over-the-air antenna connected to your TV provides another free option, no streaming required, as long as you have good reception.


Local and prime-time games will also be available to watch for free on your iOS or Android phone or tablet through the Yahoo Sports app. Some games, like next Thursday’s Bengals and Browns matchup on NFL Network, will require you to be on a cellular connection and not on Wi-Fi due to “rights restrictions.” Keep that in mind if you’re on a limited data plan.


Other Paid Options with Free Trials


Amazon Prime Video



All Thursday Night Football games can be live-streamed using Amazon prime video. If you already have a prime subscription, you can stream the games at no additional charge.


Hulu


This year, fans can watch NFL games live with Hulu+LiveTV. The normal Hulu package doesn’t include NFL coverage, but users can watch ESPN, NBC, Fox, and CBS for a fee.


Price: $54.99/month


What’s missing?: NFL Redzone and NFL Network


FuboTV


Subscribers will have access to sports channels including ESPN and NFL Network. Additionally, there is an option for a 7 day free trial and for an extra $10.99, you can watch NFL Redzone too.


Price: $64.99


What’s missing?: ABC


YouTube TV


This may be the most comprehensive option for streaming NFL in 2020. With Youtube TV, you can access every channel you need for the NFL (and more). However, you will have to pay an additional $10.99 for Redzone similar to FuboTV. Both streaming services will be available via mobile apps on Android and IOS. Moreover, fans can watch the games on their TVs using Roku, Chromecast, Android TV, Apple TV and Fire TV with both Youtube TV and FuboTV.


Price: $64.99


What’s missing?: Technically, nothing. You’ll have to pay an additional fee for Redzone, though.


Other Streaming Services


Fans can also stream games on a number of other platforms including Sling, AT&TV Now, Vidgo, and CBS All Access.


Thursday Night Football has also been available for Amazon Prime users since week 10. Not the worst option for casual fans who don’t need a full blown cable replacement.


Finally, DirecTV will offer a non-satellite version of NFL Sunday ticket to people living in apartments or condos. These fans will be able to watch every Sunday afternoon game live.


Thursday Night Football: NFL Network, Fox, Amazon Prime and Twitch Thursday Night Football is probably the most complicated part of the NFL streaming schedule. Most games will be available on the NFL Network, Fox, Amazon Prime Video and Twitch.


A handful of Thursday games, however, are being shown exclusively on NFL Network, including the Week 15 and Week 16 Saturday doubleheaders.


The Christmas Day matchup (or “Thursday Night Football on a Friday”) between the Vikings and Saints in Week 16, however, will be shown on all platforms: Fox, NFL Network, Amazon Prime Video and Twitch.


As mentioned above, if you want the NFL Network you’re going to need FuboTV or YouTube TV or use the Yahoo Sports app.


RedZone options


A frequent fan-favorite method of following all the NFL action, RedZone is a way to catch every big play around the league. The cheapest road to RedZone is through YouTube TV or FuboTV and getting either of their respective $11 per month sports add-ons.


If you’re fine with watching on your phone, the NFL offers RedZone as an in-app subscription for $35 for the season. While one of the cheapest options for getting RedZone, as The TV Answer Man points out, it is a bit tricky to find this option and you will only be able to watch through the NFL app on your iPhone or Android phone.


Once in the app, click on the profile icon in the upper-right corner. You’ll see a section labeled “Subscriptions” with a line for NFL RedZone. Tap “Access” and you should be able to sign up.


With Dish making peace with the NFL, Sling TV Blue and Sports Extra is another option. This will run $40 per month ($30 for Sling Blue plus $10 for Sports Extra add-on), but can be streamed on a host of devices including iOS, Android, Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV and in web browsers.


Sling is currently offering RedZone and Sports Extra for free for one month for new Sling Blue subscribers.


If you only subscribe to Sling’s Orange package you won’t be able to get RedZone in Sports Extra. Your base package needs to be either Sling Blue or its larger Sling Blue Plus Orange bundle to be able to get RedZone as an add-on.






What happened to the preseason?


The NFL canceled the entire 2020 preseason in July, with teams focusing on doing their own training camps to prepare for the upcoming season.

Will the NFL move some Sunday games to other days?


The NFL had been rumored to be looking at moving some games to Saturday if college football was scaled back significantly this fall, but this scenario seems unlikely now that the Big Ten, Pac-12, Mountain West and MAC conferences announced they will play truncated seasons, which reversed previous decisions to postpone their fall seasons. The ACC, Big 12 and SEC have already begun their 2020 campaigns.


The NFL would potentially need to seek government approval if it did want to move games to Friday or Saturday nights due to Chapter 32 of the United States Code, which was designed to keep those nights free from September through December for high school and college football.
