With the exception of the morning game played in London (Eagles vs. Jaguars), which is being broadcast on the NFL Network, all of the other NFL games today are airing on a major broadcast network: CBS, Fox, or NBC. Bear in mind, however, that your local stations won’t be showing every game; you should be able to watch your region’s local team and a few other premier games.
To watch these NFL games for free today on TV, turn on your local CBS, Fox, or NBC station. If you have a satellite or cable TV package, you probably have these channels — and perhaps you have the pay channel NFL Network too.
If you don’t have cable, you can still watch the NFL games for free that are airing locally on CBS and Fox, plus the “Sunday Night Football” game, which is broadcast nationally on NBC. All you need to do for access to these channels is hook up your TV to a digital antenna. A basic digital TV antenna costs around $25, and in most of the country that’s all you need to do to watch over-the-air networks, including Fox, CBS, PBS, NBC, and ABC — totally for free.
How to Live Stream the NFL Games Today for Free
As we have previously reported, there’s a new way to live stream NFL games for free on your phone in the 2018 season:
If you are content to live stream games on your phone, you can use the Yahoo Sports app or NFL App. Each app offers live streams for the NFL games broadcast on TV in your area, as well as nationally televised primetime games, including “Monday Night Football” on ESPN, “Thursday Night Football” on Fox or the NFL Network, and NBC’s “Sunday Night Football.”
Unfortunately, these apps only allow live streaming on phones. You cannot use one of the apps for watching the NFL live online with a larger screen, such as a laptop, tablet, or connected TV.
