Here’s everything you need to know — and possibly, a few products and services you’ll want to buy or try out during free trials — to watch NFL games during the 2019 season.

The methods for watching NFL games change often as the league signs new contracts and streaming services change their policies, and we’re always updating this guide with the latest broadcast info.

With so many good matchups, you’re probably looking for a way to catch the action online. Here are the best ways to live stream NFL games.

For Cabland Satellite Subscriberse 

NFL RedZone: If you have a cable TV subscription, NFL RedZone lets you watch a football game’s most exciting moments. The service broadcasts live coverage from every game on a given Sunday, but only when a team is in the “red zone,” or about to potentially score a touchdown. Because it also gives you real-time fantasy stats and extended highlights, it’s especially useful for fantasy-football fans.

NFL RedZone games air between 1 p.m. ET and the end of the late-afternoon games on Sundays during the NFL season. You can watch RedZone from your cable or satellite provider’s streaming service or on a variety of apps for smartphones, tablets and connected devices like Apple TV and PlayStation 4. You can also watch games in a web browser.

NFL Sunday Ticket: DirecTV subscribers have one of the simplest paths to streaming full NFL games in NFL Sunday Ticket. This service streams live games in their entirety to televisions, computers, Android and iOS devices, and game consoles. Sunday Ticket applies only to out-of-market games.

You can also get NFL Sunday Ticket as a stand-alone service — but only if you live in an area that doesn’t get DirecTV service.

Watch ESPN: If you subscribe to a cable package that includes ESPN, and most do, you can stream live ESPN programming from just about any device. Simply use your computer, smartphone, set-top box, game console or another connected device to download the ESPN app, then sign in with your cable providerꞌs information. When ESPN airs Monday Night Football, log into the app and enjoy the game.

If you really want to watch football but donꞌt have any desire to clutter up your TV with a cable subscription, Sling TV provides a middle ground. This streaming live-TV service offers ESPN on its $25-per-month Sling Orange service, and Fox and Fox Sports on its $25-per-month Sling Blue service.

To get both ESPN and Fox costs $40 per month, which puts Sling somewhere in the neighborhood of a traditional cable package. But itꞌs much easier to watch Sling remotely, and it works with a huge variety of mobile devices, game consoles and smart TVs.

A current promotion is knocking 40% off the normal $25 monthly rate, so you’d just pay $15 for SlingTV.VIEW DEAL

NFL Game Pass: There is one extremely easy way to watch any NFL game you want online, but it comes with a huge caveat: You have to wait until the game is over. Still, if you can keep yourself from finding out last nightꞌs score, NFL Game Pass will charge you $74.99 per year for the privilege of streaming any game to your computer, mobile device or set-top box.

Game Pass also lets you watch select preseason games, listen to local radio broadcasts of games and watch condensed versions that squeeze an entire game into 30 minutes. While watching the game in real time is arguably half the fun of live sports, thereꞌs something to be said for setting your own schedule.

CBS All Access: CBS All Access is another ideal option for watching games online. In addition to a back catalog of CBS shows, plus some streaming-only shows like Star Trek: Discovery, this service also lets you watch your local CBS station and the game in your market as it airs.

For $6 per month, you can watch the service on most set-top boxes, gaming consoles, mobile devices and computers with limited commercial interruption. If you fork over $10 a month for the service, you’ll get all that commercial-free.

Amazon: Amazon is now streaming live NFL games after it acquired the contract for Thursday Night Football broadcast rights. As long as you have Amazon Prime Video, you can watch Thursday Night Football on the service without ever needing to pay extra. That said, the NFL has retained the rights to five Thursday Night Football games that it airs exclusively on the NFL Network. Amazon Prime Video cannot air those games.

Bypass NFL Game Pass Blackouts with a VPN

Some internet users seem to have found a workaround with NFL Game Pass that lets them watch games live by using a VPN service.

Many online guides suggest that if you use a VPN to make it look like you’re located in Europe, and use that to sign up for the European version of NFL Game Pass, you’ll be able to watch any game you want live. Nearly every European country and former Soviet republic can access NFL Game Pass, but you might not want to pick the United Kingdom or Ireland as your “location,” because some blackouts apply there, too.

We’ve evaluated many VPN services, and our top pick is ExpressVPN. It meets the VPN needs of the vast majority of users, offering outstanding compatibility with most devices and impressive connection speeds. It’s also affordable at $12.95 per month. (Signing up for longer periods of six months or a year reduces the cost even more.)

Free Streaming Options

Yahoo Sports: The Yahoo Sports app for iOS and Android has replaced the old Verizon NFL Mobile app. It streams every NFL game that’s broadcast in your local TV market to your smartphone or tablet for free, including Monday Night Football and Thursday Night Football. You can also sign into your NFL Game Pass subscription and stream it from the Yahoo app.

DIY Streaming Solutions

HD Antenna Streaming Services: This option involves a bit of DIY industriousness, but if you want to catch local games, why not just set up your own stream? Services like Channel Master and Tablo allow you to hook up an HD antenna to a DVR box, then broadcast the stream — either live or recorded — to a set-top box, mobile device or computer just about anywhere in the world.

The cost varies depending on the HD antenna you get and the service you use, but the local channels themselves are free, and you wonꞌt have to jump through any NFL-sponsored hoops.

How to watch NFL games online, with or without cable

In 2019, your options for watching NFL action online are plentiful. Almost all of them will cost you in some way, but there are several avenues for catching nearly any game you want, from now until the big day when the Patriots, er, we mean any number of teams, wins the Super Bowl.

To help keep you close to the action, we’ve compiled this comprehensive guide on how to stream the entire 2019/2020 season online. Put on your jersey and find a comfortable spot to kick back — here’s your ticket to the NFL.

Note: Thanksgiving games are unfortunately not a part of Thursday Night Football. To get the games, you can either use an HD antenna to watch them on Fox, CBS, and NBC (for the night game) or sign up for one of the live TV streaming services listed below to potentially stream your local broadcast channels.

Sunday Night Football

The Sunday Night Football schedule is always complicated for streaming. While NFL Network gets all the games, 11 of them are available from multiple outlets.

In 2018, Fox paid a reported $3.3 billion to land telecast rights for those 11 games for five years, and those available down the road. Meanwhile, Amazon shelled out big bucks for TNF streaming rights, landing the same 11 games for its Amazon Prime Video service, as well as its Twitch video service.

Below is a list of all the TNF games planned for the 2019 season, including those on Fox (available for many with an HD antenna), Amazon Prime Video, and Twitch, as well as the full NFL Network TV schedule. (All games scheduled at 8:20 p.m. ET unless otherwise noted.)

As you can see, while there are great options for cord-cutters to watch most of TNF this year, you’ll have to get creative if you want to watch all of them. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered below.

NFL Sunday Ticket (a la carte)

If you live in a dorm, apartment complex, or city that doesn’t allow for access to DirecTV, you may be eligible to buy the company’s coveted NFL Sunday ticket package without having to sign up for satellite. The standard streaming package — which currently starts at $73.49 a month under a four-month promotional period — allows you to stream out-of-market games on your computer, smartphone, game console, or smart TV, no satellite required. You can find out more about this package, and whether or not you qualify, at the link above.

While this option represents one of the most comprehensive ways to watch the NFL, it does come with a few caveats. First, Sunday Ticket only grants users the ability to watch games on Sunday, without access to Sunday night, Thursday night, or Monday night contests. Local games are also subject to blackout, which means DirecTV is “restricted from showing events near where a game is played or broadcast locally.”

Sling TV

Sling TV offers perhaps the best bang for your buck online, including options for ESPN, NFL Network, and the all-important RedZone Channel — but like a lot of online relationships, it’s complicated.

The package is broken up into two segments, including Sling Orange and Sling Blue. With Sling Orange, you can watch Monday night games on ESPN for $25 a month, but you’ll be restricted to streaming from one device at a time, and there’s no NFL Network or option to purchase NFL RedZone. At the same price, Sling Blue users get access to NFL Network, and the ability to stream to multiple devices, as well as possibly watching games on NBC and Fox (depending on where you live), but you don’t get access to ESPN. You can, however, purchase the Sports Extra package for $10 a month and have NFL RedZone. Yes, it’s convoluted, but that’s where we are now.

For the best shot at the NFL season, we recommend going for the $40 package, which gets you both Sling Blue and Orange and then adding Sports Extra for RedZone. You also get a Cloud DVR, but it isn’t available for ESPN networks. Sure, it gets a bit pricey, but you do get pretty much everything you need for NFL streaming (shy of the full Sunday Ticket package, of course), and you can always drop after the season.

AT&T TV Now (formerly DirecTV Now)

AT&T knows that cord-cutting is popular, so the company has followed suit with competitors in creating an online-only TV service, AT&T TV Now (formerly DirecTV Now). Prices start at $50 per month for the entry-level package, which gets you more than 45 channels — including ESPN for your Monday Night Football fix.

If you’re lucky, you might also be able to watch live Sunday football on CBS and Fox, Sunday Night Football on NBC, and Thursday games on Fox, but live local channels are only offered in select cities — you can find out if you get them with this handy tool. The package also features a Cloud DVR. Unfortunately, NFL Network-exclusive games won’t be available because AT&T has decided to drop NFL Network and NFL RedZone from all DirecTV and U-Verse offerings.

YouTube TV

It is currently available only in select cities, but if you’re in one of those areas, you might want to take a look at YouTube TV. For $50 a month, you’re guaranteed to have CBS, NBC, and Fox, so you’ll be able to get your NFL fix on Sunday (based around your in-market games, of course), Sunday night, and Thursday night for most games this season. It also has ESPN for Monday Night Football, but no NFL Network or RedZone. The service also comes with a cloud DVR system, but with some restrictions.

PlayStation Vue

PlayStation Vue — which isn’t limited to PlayStation owners despite the name — offers four subscription levels starting at $50 per month for the Access package. For our purposes, though, you’ll likely want to start with the Core package at $55 per month, which includes NFL Network for Thursday Night Football, as well as a few Monday, Saturday, and Sunday broadcasts. You should also get local broadcasts of games too, depending on where you live.

Users can upgrade to The Sports Pack which comes with NFL RedZone for $10 a month. Vue also includes DVR recording capabilities (with some channel and time-limit restrictions, of course) and, along with PlayStation 3 and PS4 hardware, it’s available to stream via apps on Amazon Fire TV devices, iOS, Apple TV, Android, Chromecast, and Roku devices.

Hulu with Live TV

Hulu’s live tv subscription is proving to be a favorite for a lot of cord-cutters. At $45 per month, you get access to Monday Night Football on ESPN, Sunday Night Football on NBC, and other nationally broadcasted games throughout the week on CBS and Fox. Like most other online subscriptions, your locally televised games may or may not air, depending on where you live. Unlike most other services, you also get access to Hulu’s original programming and on-demand content as part of your package. You don’t, however, get access to NFL Network or RedZone, and if you want to DVR a game you have to pay an extra $15 a month to fast-forward commercials.

Fubo TV

Yet another live TV streaming service, FuboTV is all about sports, so it makes sense it would serve up some NFL action. That said, even though its packages start at $55 per month, it has a huge hole in its coverage: No ESPN. It does, however, carry NFL Network, and depending on your area, local affiliates for Sunday games, as well as an option to add NFL RedZone for another $9 per month through the Sports Plus package. This service will mostly appeal to those into all kinds of sports, including college football nuts, but you may want to check what’s available in your area before signing up. Supported devices include computers, Roku, Apple TV, Fire TV, Android and iOS devices, and Chromecast.

CBS All Access

If you’re not committed to a fantasy team or only watch the NFL casually, CBS All Access might be an option for you. For $6 a month, you get live access to CBS’ AFC games on Sundays. This is the cheapest subscription on the list, but that’s because you’re missing way more games than you get, and most people can access in-market games with a simple HD antenna anyway. Still, if you’re looking to tiptoe your way into football fandom, All Access is a decent starting point, and shows like Star Trek: Discovery alone could make it worthwhile for some.

NFL mobile app

It used to be that only those paying a hefty Verizon bill every month could get NFL streaming on their phones, but as of 2017, everyone can get in on it regardless of carrier. The NFL mobile app and Verizon’s portfolio of streaming properties — including Yahoo Sports and its go90 service — will stream “in-market and national games, including national pre-season, regular season, playoff games, and the Super Bowl nationwide to sports fans,” on mobile devices, along with highlights and other content. The biggest drawback is that, unless you can find a workaround, you’ll be stuck watching on your phone as the app blocks mirroring to your TV from most devices.

NFL GamePass (sort of)

Launched in 2015, NFL.com offers a subscription streaming option called GamePass, but it isn’t as desirable as you might think. For $100 or four installments of $30, a GamePass subscription allows you to stream any regular-season game after it’s aired, and lets you rewatch games going back to 2009. Obviously, the biggest draw to watching sports is watching the game unfold in real-time, so this option doesn’t offer much for most fans. But GamePass is a great choice for fans who can’t watch games live or just students of the game, and it’s also a great place to catch live preseason games ahead of the season.

Pay TV subscription required

These options require you (or someone who likes you very much) to have an active pay TV subscription with one of several providers, which (as noted by the Streaming Observer’s Chris Branton), includes some of the live TV streaming services mentioned above, such as Sling TV.

Fox Sports Go

Football fans with a pay-TV subscription will appreciate the Fox Sports Go app, which gives access to dozens of streamable NFL games. Compatible devices include Chromecast, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV devices, Android TV, and both iOS and Android mobile devices. You can also watch on your browser.

NBC airs Sunday Night Football games (including the season opener on Thursday, September 5) throughout the regular season and the network also streams the games online via its app and NBCSports.com, available with your pay-TV credentials. The NBC Sports app is available on Chromecast, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox, PlayStation 4, iOS, and Android supported devices. The NBC Sports app is actually pretty sweet if your interests go beyond football, too. PGA, Premier League soccer, and the Olympics all air on NBC, so the app is pretty valuable even after football season.

NFL Network online

If you want to go straight to the source, the NFL Network offers streaming access to its broadcast games and RedZone, depending on your cable or satellite provider. As mentioned above, RedZone’s scoring storm showing any team close to putting up points, often splitting the screen between multiple games, is the big-ticket item. If you’re a fantasy guru, this is also a great way to stay on top of all your players. You (or someone you know) will need to purchase the NFL Network from your cable or satellite provider to get it.

WatchESPN

WatchESPN is an online-only companion service that lets you stream live Monday Night Football. For now, you must have a paid subscription to a compatible pay-TV service to use the app, but the good news is the app has gotten a lot better in recent years, losing a lot of its stuttering ways. ESPN only holds the rights to air Monday Night Football games, meaning it won’t work for Sunday games, and, in case you were wondering, the stand-alone app, ESPN+, does not carry the NFL.

If you’re lucky, you might also be able to watch live Sunday football on CBS and Fox, Sunday Night Football on NBC, and Thursday games on Fox, but live local channels are only offered in select cities — you can find out if you get them with this handy tool. The package also features a Cloud DVR. Unfortunately, NFL Network-exclusive games won’t be available because AT&T has decided to drop NFL Network and NFL RedZone from all DirecTV and U-Verse offerings.

YouTube TV

It is currently available only in select cities, but if you’re in one of those areas, you might want to take a look at YouTube TV. For $50 a month, you’re guaranteed to have CBS, NBC, and Fox, so you’ll be able to get your NFL fix on Sunday (based around your in-market games, of course), Sunday night, and Thursday night for most games this season. It also has ESPN for Monday Night Football, but no NFL Network or RedZone. The service also comes with a cloud DVR system, but with some restrictions.

PlayStation Vue

PlayStation Vue — which isn’t limited to PlayStation owners despite the name — offers four subscription levels starting at $50 per month for the Access package. For our purposes, though, you’ll likely want to start with the Core package at $55 per month, which includes NFL Network for Thursday Night Football, as well as a few Monday, Saturday, and Sunday broadcasts. You should also get local broadcasts of games too, depending on where you live.

Users can upgrade to The Sports Pack which comes with NFL RedZone for $10 a month. Vue also includes DVR recording capabilities (with some channel and time-limit restrictions, of course) and, along with PlayStation 3 and PS4 hardware, it’s available to stream via apps on Amazon Fire TV devices, iOS, Apple TV, Android, Chromecast, and Roku devices.

Hulu with Live TV

Hulu’s live tv subscription is proving to be a favorite for a lot of cord-cutters. At $45 per month, you get access to Monday Night Football on ESPN, Sunday Night Football on NBC, and other nationally broadcasted games throughout the week on CBS and Fox. Like most other online subscriptions, your locally televised games may or may not air, depending on where you live. Unlike most other services, you also get access to Hulu’s original programming and on-demand content as part of your package. You don’t, however, get access to NFL Network or RedZone, and if you want to DVR a game you have to pay an extra $15 a month to fast-forward commercials.

Fubo TV

Yet another live TV streaming service, FuboTV is all about sports, so it makes sense it would serve up some NFL action. That said, even though its packages start at $55 per month, it has a huge hole in its coverage: No ESPN. It does, however, carry NFL Network, and depending on your area, local affiliates for Sunday games, as well as an option to add NFL RedZone for another $9 per month through the Sports Plus package. This service will mostly appeal to those into all kinds of sports, including college football nuts, but you may want to check what’s available in your area before signing up. Supported devices include computers, Roku, Apple TV, Fire TV, Android and iOS devices, and Chromecast.

CBS All Access

If you’re not committed to a fantasy team or only watch the NFL casually, CBS All Access might be an option for you. For $6 a month, you get live access to CBS’ AFC games on Sundays. This is the cheapest subscription on the list, but that’s because you’re missing way more games than you get, and most people can access in-market games with a simple HD antenna anyway. Still, if you’re looking to tiptoe your way into football fandom, All Access is a decent starting point, and shows like Star Trek: Discovery alone could make it worthwhile for some.

NFL mobile app

It used to be that only those paying a hefty Verizon bill every month could get NFL streaming on their phones, but as of 2017, everyone can get in on it regardless of carrier. The NFL mobile app and Verizon’s portfolio of streaming properties — including Yahoo Sports and its go90 service — will stream “in-market and national games, including national pre-season, regular season, playoff games, and the Super Bowl nationwide to sports fans,” on mobile devices, along with highlights and other content. The biggest drawback is that, unless you can find a workaround, you’ll be stuck watching on your phone as the app blocks mirroring to your TV from most devices.

NFL GamePass (sort of)

Launched in 2015, NFL.com offers a subscription streaming option called GamePass, but it isn’t as desirable as you might think. For $100 or four installments of $30, a GamePass subscription allows you to stream any regular-season game after it’s aired, and lets you rewatch games going back to 2009. Obviously, the biggest draw to watching sports is watching the game unfold in real-time, so this option doesn’t offer much for most fans. But GamePass is a great choice for fans who can’t watch games live or just students of the game, and it’s also a great place to catch live preseason games ahead of the season.

Pay TV subscription required

These options require you (or someone who likes you very much) to have an active pay TV subscription with one of several providers, which (as noted by the Streaming Observer’s Chris Branton), includes some of the live TV streaming services mentioned above, such as Sling TV.

Fox Sports Go

Football fans with a pay-TV subscription will appreciate the Fox Sports Go app, which gives access to dozens of streamable NFL games. Compatible devices include Chromecast, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV devices, Android TV, and both iOS and Android mobile devices. You can also watch on your browser.

NBC airs Sunday Night Football games (including the season opener on Thursday, September 5) throughout the regular season and the network also streams the games online via its app and NBCSports.com, available with your pay-TV credentials. The NBC Sports app is available on Chromecast, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox, PlayStation 4, iOS, and Android supported devices. The NBC Sports app is actually pretty sweet if your interests go beyond football, too. PGA, Premier League soccer, and the Olympics all air on NBC, so the app is pretty valuable even after football season.

NFL Network online

If you want to go straight to the source, the NFL Network offers streaming access to its broadcast games and RedZone, depending on your cable or satellite provider. As mentioned above, RedZone’s scoring storm showing any team close to putting up points, often splitting the screen between multiple games, is the big-ticket item. If you’re a fantasy guru, this is also a great way to stay on top of all your players. You (or someone you know) will need to purchase the NFL Network from your cable or satellite provider to get it.

WatchESPN

WatchESPN is an online-only companion service that lets you stream live Monday Night Football. For now, you must have a paid subscription to a compatible pay-TV service to use the app, but the good news is the app has gotten a lot better in recent years, losing a lot of its stuttering ways. ESPN only holds the rights to air Monday Night Football games, meaning it won’t work for Sunday games, and, in case you were wondering, the stand-alone app, ESPN+, does not carry the NFL.

Here’s everything you need to know — and possibly, a few products and services you’ll want to buy or try out during free trials — to watch NFL games during the 2019 season.

The methods for watching NFL games change often as the league signs new contracts and streaming services change their policies, and we’re always updating this guide with the latest broadcast info.

With so many good matchups, you’re probably looking for a way to catch the action online. Here are the best ways to live stream NFL games.

For Cabland Satellite Subscriberse 

NFL RedZone: If you have a cable TV subscription, NFL RedZone lets you watch a football game’s most exciting moments. The service broadcasts live coverage from every game on a given Sunday, but only when a team is in the “red zone,” or about to potentially score a touchdown. Because it also gives you real-time fantasy stats and extended highlights, it’s especially useful for fantasy-football fans.

NFL RedZone games air between 1 p.m. ET and the end of the late-afternoon games on Sundays during the NFL season. You can watch RedZone from your cable or satellite provider’s streaming service or on a variety of apps for smartphones, tablets and connected devices like Apple TV and PlayStation 4. You can also watch games in a web browser.

NFL Sunday Ticket: DirecTV subscribers have one of the simplest paths to streaming full NFL games in NFL Sunday Ticket. This service streams live games in their entirety to televisions, computers, Android and iOS devices, and game consoles. Sunday Ticket applies only to out-of-market games.

You can also get NFL Sunday Ticket as a stand-alone service — but only if you live in an area that doesn’t get DirecTV service.

Watch ESPN: If you subscribe to a cable package that includes ESPN, and most do, you can stream live ESPN programming from just about any device. Simply use your computer, smartphone, set-top box, game console or another connected device to download the ESPN app, then sign in with your cable providerꞌs information. When ESPN airs Monday Night Football, log into the app and enjoy the game.

If you really want to watch football but donꞌt have any desire to clutter up your TV with a cable subscription, Sling TV provides a middle ground. This streaming live-TV service offers ESPN on its $25-per-month Sling Orange service, and Fox and Fox Sports on its $25-per-month Sling Blue service.

To get both ESPN and Fox costs $40 per month, which puts Sling somewhere in the neighborhood of a traditional cable package. But itꞌs much easier to watch Sling remotely, and it works with a huge variety of mobile devices, game consoles and smart TVs.

A current promotion is knocking 40% off the normal $25 monthly rate, so you’d just pay $15 for SlingTV.VIEW DEAL

NFL Game Pass: There is one extremely easy way to watch any NFL game you want online, but it comes with a huge caveat: You have to wait until the game is over. Still, if you can keep yourself from finding out last nightꞌs score, NFL Game Pass will charge you $74.99 per year for the privilege of streaming any game to your computer, mobile device or set-top box.

Game Pass also lets you watch select preseason games, listen to local radio broadcasts of games and watch condensed versions that squeeze an entire game into 30 minutes. While watching the game in real time is arguably half the fun of live sports, thereꞌs something to be said for setting your own schedule.

CBS All Access: CBS All Access is another ideal option for watching games online. In addition to a back catalog of CBS shows, plus some streaming-only shows like Star Trek: Discovery, this service also lets you watch your local CBS station and the game in your market as it airs.

For $6 per month, you can watch the service on most set-top boxes, gaming consoles, mobile devices and computers with limited commercial interruption. If you fork over $10 a month for the service, you’ll get all that commercial-free.

Amazon: Amazon is now streaming live NFL games after it acquired the contract for Thursday Night Football broadcast rights. As long as you have Amazon Prime Video, you can watch Thursday Night Football on the service without ever needing to pay extra. That said, the NFL has retained the rights to five Thursday Night Football games that it airs exclusively on the NFL Network. Amazon Prime Video cannot air those games.

Bypass NFL Game Pass Blackouts with a VPN

Some internet users seem to have found a workaround with NFL Game Pass that lets them watch games live by using a VPN service.

Many online guides suggest that if you use a VPN to make it look like you’re located in Europe, and use that to sign up for the European version of NFL Game Pass, you’ll be able to watch any game you want live. Nearly every European country and former Soviet republic can access NFL Game Pass, but you might not want to pick the United Kingdom or Ireland as your “location,” because some blackouts apply there, too.

We’ve evaluated many VPN services, and our top pick is ExpressVPN. It meets the VPN needs of the vast majority of users, offering outstanding compatibility with most devices and impressive connection speeds. It’s also affordable at $12.95 per month. (Signing up for longer periods of six months or a year reduces the cost even more.)

Free Streaming Options

Yahoo Sports: The Yahoo Sports app for iOS and Android has replaced the old Verizon NFL Mobile app. It streams every NFL game that’s broadcast in your local TV market to your smartphone or tablet for free, including Monday Night Football and Thursday Night Football. You can also sign into your NFL Game Pass subscription and stream it from the Yahoo app.

DIY Streaming Solutions

HD Antenna Streaming Services: This option involves a bit of DIY industriousness, but if you want to catch local games, why not just set up your own stream? Services like Channel Master and Tablo allow you to hook up an HD antenna to a DVR box, then broadcast the stream — either live or recorded — to a set-top box, mobile device or computer just about anywhere in the world.

The cost varies depending on the HD antenna you get and the service you use, but the local channels themselves are free, and you wonꞌt have to jump through any NFL-sponsored hoops.

How to watch NFL games online, with or without cable

In 2019, your options for watching NFL action online are plentiful. Almost all of them will cost you in some way, but there are several avenues for catching nearly any game you want, from now until the big day when the Patriots, er, we mean any number of teams, wins the Super Bowl.

To help keep you close to the action, we’ve compiled this comprehensive guide on how to stream the entire 2019/2020 season online. Put on your jersey and find a comfortable spot to kick back — here’s your ticket to the NFL.

Note: Thanksgiving games are unfortunately not a part of Thursday Night Football. To get the games, you can either use an HD antenna to watch them on Fox, CBS, and NBC (for the night game) or sign up for one of the live TV streaming services listed below to potentially stream your local broadcast channels.

Sunday Night Football

The Sunday Night Football schedule is always complicated for streaming. While NFL Network gets all the games, 11 of them are available from multiple outlets.

In 2018, Fox paid a reported $3.3 billion to land telecast rights for those 11 games for five years, and those available down the road. Meanwhile, Amazon shelled out big bucks for TNF streaming rights, landing the same 11 games for its Amazon Prime Video service, as well as its Twitch video service.

Below is a list of all the TNF games planned for the 2019 season, including those on Fox (available for many with an HD antenna), Amazon Prime Video, and Twitch, as well as the full NFL Network TV schedule. (All games scheduled at 8:20 p.m. ET unless otherwise noted.)

As you can see, while there are great options for cord-cutters to watch most of TNF this year, you’ll have to get creative if you want to watch all of them. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered below.

NFL Sunday Ticket (a la carte)

If you live in a dorm, apartment complex, or city that doesn’t allow for access to DirecTV, you may be eligible to buy the company’s coveted NFL Sunday ticket package without having to sign up for satellite. The standard streaming package — which currently starts at $73.49 a month under a four-month promotional period — allows you to stream out-of-market games on your computer, smartphone, game console, or smart TV, no satellite required. You can find out more about this package, and whether or not you qualify, at the link above.

While this option represents one of the most comprehensive ways to watch the NFL, it does come with a few caveats. First, Sunday Ticket only grants users the ability to watch games on Sunday, without access to Sunday night, Thursday night, or Monday night contests. Local games are also subject to blackout, which means DirecTV is “restricted from showing events near where a game is played or broadcast locally.”

Sling TV

Sling TV offers perhaps the best bang for your buck online, including options for ESPN, NFL Network, and the all-important RedZone Channel — but like a lot of online relationships, it’s complicated.

The package is broken up into two segments, including Sling Orange and Sling Blue. With Sling Orange, you can watch Monday night games on ESPN for $25 a month, but you’ll be restricted to streaming from one device at a time, and there’s no NFL Network or option to purchase NFL RedZone. At the same price, Sling Blue users get access to NFL Network, and the ability to stream to multiple devices, as well as possibly watching games on NBC and Fox (depending on where you live), but you don’t get access to ESPN. You can, however, purchase the Sports Extra package for $10 a month and have NFL RedZone. Yes, it’s convoluted, but that’s where we are now.

For the best shot at the NFL season, we recommend going for the $40 package, which gets you both Sling Blue and Orange and then adding Sports Extra for RedZone. You also get a Cloud DVR, but it isn’t available for ESPN networks. Sure, it gets a bit pricey, but you do get pretty much everything you need for NFL streaming (shy of the full Sunday Ticket package, of course), and you can always drop after the season.

AT&T TV Now (formerly DirecTV Now)

AT&T knows that cord-cutting is popular, so the company has followed suit with competitors in creating an online-only TV service, AT&T TV Now (formerly DirecTV Now). Prices start at $50 per month for the entry-level package, which gets you more than 45 channels — including ESPN for your Monday Night Football fix.

If you’re lucky, you might also be able to watch live Sunday football on CBS and Fox, Sunday Night Football on NBC, and Thursday games on Fox, but live local channels are only offered in select cities — you can find out if you get them with this handy tool. The package also features a Cloud DVR. Unfortunately, NFL Network-exclusive games won’t be available because AT&T has decided to drop NFL Network and NFL RedZone from all DirecTV and U-Verse offerings.

YouTube TV

It is currently available only in select cities, but if you’re in one of those areas, you might want to take a look at YouTube TV. For $50 a month, you’re guaranteed to have CBS, NBC, and Fox, so you’ll be able to get your NFL fix on Sunday (based around your in-market games, of course), Sunday night, and Thursday night for most games this season. It also has ESPN for Monday Night Football, but no NFL Network or RedZone. The service also comes with a cloud DVR system, but with some restrictions.

PlayStation Vue

PlayStation Vue — which isn’t limited to PlayStation owners despite the name — offers four subscription levels starting at $50 per month for the Access package. For our purposes, though, you’ll likely want to start with the Core package at $55 per month, which includes NFL Network for Thursday Night Football, as well as a few Monday, Saturday, and Sunday broadcasts. You should also get local broadcasts of games too, depending on where you live.

Users can upgrade to The Sports Pack which comes with NFL RedZone for $10 a month. Vue also includes DVR recording capabilities (with some channel and time-limit restrictions, of course) and, along with PlayStation 3 and PS4 hardware, it’s available to stream via apps on Amazon Fire TV devices, iOS, Apple TV, Android, Chromecast, and Roku devices.

Hulu with Live TV

Hulu’s live tv subscription is proving to be a favorite for a lot of cord-cutters. At $45 per month, you get access to Monday Night Football on ESPN, Sunday Night Football on NBC, and other nationally broadcasted games throughout the week on CBS and Fox.

If you really want to watch football but donꞌt have any desire to clutter up your TV with a cable subscription, Sling TV provides a middle ground. This streaming live-TV service offers ESPN on its $25-per-month Sling Orange service, and Fox and Fox Sports on its $25-per-month Sling Blue service.

To get both ESPN and Fox costs $40 per month, which puts Sling somewhere in the neighborhood of a traditional cable package. But itꞌs much easier to watch Sling remotely, and it works with a huge variety of mobile devices, game consoles and smart TVs.

A current promotion is knocking 40% off the normal $25 monthly rate, so you’d just pay $15 for SlingTV.VIEW DEAL

NFL Game Pass: There is one extremely easy way to watch any NFL game you want online, but it comes with a huge caveat: You have to wait until the game is over. Still, if you can keep yourself from finding out last nightꞌs score, NFL Game Pass will charge you $74.99 per year for the privilege of streaming any game to your computer, mobile device or set-top box.

Game Pass also lets you watch select preseason games, listen to local radio broadcasts of games and watch condensed versions that squeeze an entire game into 30 minutes. While watching the game in real time is arguably half the fun of live sports, thereꞌs something to be said for setting your own schedule.

CBS All Access: CBS All Access is another ideal option for watching games online. In addition to a back catalog of CBS shows, plus some streaming-only shows like Star Trek: Discovery, this service also lets you watch your local CBS station and the game in your market as it airs.

For $6 per month, you can watch the service on most set-top boxes, gaming consoles, mobile devices and computers with limited commercial interruption. If you fork over $10 a month for the service, you’ll get all that commercial-free.

Amazon: Amazon is now streaming live NFL games after it acquired the contract for Thursday Night Football broadcast rights. As long as you have Amazon Prime Video, you can watch Thursday Night Football on the service without ever needing to pay extra. That said, the NFL has retained the rights to five Thursday Night Football games that it airs exclusively on the NFL Network. Amazon Prime Video cannot air those games.

Bypass NFL Game Pass Blackouts with a VPN

Some internet users seem to have found a workaround with NFL Game Pass that lets them watch games live by using a VPN service.

Many online guides suggest that if you use a VPN to make it look like you’re located in Europe, and use that to sign up for the European version of NFL Game Pass, you’ll be able to watch any game you want live. Nearly every European country and former Soviet republic can access NFL Game Pass, but you might not want to pick the United Kingdom or Ireland as your “location,” because some blackouts apply there, too.

We’ve evaluated many VPN services, and our top pick is ExpressVPN. It meets the VPN needs of the vast majority of users, offering outstanding compatibility with most devices and impressive connection speeds. It’s also affordable at $12.95 per month. (Signing up for longer periods of six months or a year reduces the cost even more.)

Free Streaming Options

Yahoo Sports: The Yahoo Sports app for iOS and Android has replaced the old Verizon NFL Mobile app. It streams every NFL game that’s broadcast in your local TV market to your smartphone or tablet for free, including Monday Night Football and Thursday Night Football. You can also sign into your NFL Game Pass subscription and stream it from the Yahoo app.

DIY Streaming Solutions

HD Antenna Streaming Services: This option involves a bit of DIY industriousness, but if you want to catch local games, why not just set up your own stream? Services like Channel Master and Tablo allow you to hook up an HD antenna to a DVR box, then broadcast the stream — either live or recorded — to a set-top box, mobile device or computer just about anywhere in the world.

The cost varies depending on the HD antenna you get and the service you use, but the local channels themselves are free, and you wonꞌt have to jump through any NFL-sponsored hoops.

How to watch NFL games online, with or without cable

In 2019, your options for watching NFL action online are plentiful. Almost all of them will cost you in some way, but there are several avenues for catching nearly any game you want, from now until the big day when the Patriots, er, we mean any number of teams, wins the Super Bowl.

To help keep you close to the action, we’ve compiled this comprehensive guide on how to stream the entire 2019/2020 season online. Put on your jersey and find a comfortable spot to kick back — here’s your ticket to the NFL.

Note: Thanksgiving games are unfortunately not a part of Thursday Night Football. To get the games, you can either use an HD antenna to watch them on Fox, CBS, and NBC (for the night game) or sign up for one of the live TV streaming services listed below to potentially stream your local broadcast channels.

Sunday Night Football

The Sunday Night Football schedule is always complicated for streaming. While NFL Network gets all the games, 11 of them are available from multiple outlets.

In 2018, Fox paid a reported $3.3 billion to land telecast rights for those 11 games for five years, and those available down the road. Meanwhile, Amazon shelled out big bucks for TNF streaming rights, landing the same 11 games for its Amazon Prime Video service, as well as its Twitch video service.

Below is a list of all the TNF games planned for the 2019 season, including those on Fox (available for many with an HD antenna), Amazon Prime Video, and Twitch, as well as the full NFL Network TV schedule. (All games scheduled at 8:20 p.m. ET unless otherwise noted.)

As you can see, while there are great options for cord-cutters to watch most of TNF this year, you’ll have to get creative if you want to watch all of them. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered below.

NFL Sunday Ticket (a la carte)

If you live in a dorm, apartment complex, or city that doesn’t allow for access to DirecTV, you may be eligible to buy the company’s coveted NFL Sunday ticket package without having to sign up for satellite. The standard streaming package — which currently starts at $73.49 a month under a four-month promotional period — allows you to stream out-of-market games on your computer, smartphone, game console, or smart TV, no satellite required. You can find out more about this package, and whether or not you qualify, at the link above.

While this option represents one of the most comprehensive ways to watch the NFL, it does come with a few caveats. First, Sunday Ticket only grants users the ability to watch games on Sunday, without access to Sunday night, Thursday night, or Monday night contests. Local games are also subject to blackout, which means DirecTV is “restricted from showing events near where a game is played or broadcast locally.”

Sling TV

Sling TV offers perhaps the best bang for your buck online, including options for ESPN, NFL Network, and the all-important RedZone Channel — but like a lot of online relationships, it’s complicated.

The package is broken up into two segments, including Sling Orange and Sling Blue. With Sling Orange, you can watch Monday night games on ESPN for $25 a month, but you’ll be restricted to streaming from one device at a time, and there’s no NFL Network or option to purchase NFL RedZone. At the same price, Sling Blue users get access to NFL Network, and the ability to stream to multiple devices, as well as possibly watching games on NBC and Fox (depending on where you live), but you don’t get access to ESPN. You can, however, purchase the Sports Extra package for $10 a month and have NFL RedZone. Yes, it’s convoluted, but that’s where we are now.

For the best shot at the NFL season, we recommend going for the $40 package, which gets you both Sling Blue and Orange and then adding Sports Extra for RedZone. You also get a Cloud DVR, but it isn’t available for ESPN networks. Sure, it gets a bit pricey, but you do get pretty much everything you need for NFL streaming (shy of the full Sunday Ticket package, of course), and you can always drop after the season.

AT&T TV Now (formerly DirecTV Now)

AT&T knows that cord-cutting is popular, so the company has followed suit with competitors in creating an online-only TV service, AT&T TV Now (formerly DirecTV Now). Prices start at $50 per month for the entry-level package, which gets you more than 45 channels — including ESPN for your Monday Night Football fix.

If you’re lucky, you might also be able to watch live Sunday football on CBS and Fox, Sunday Night Football on NBC, and Thursday games on Fox, but live local channels are only offered in select cities — you can find out if you get them with this handy tool. The package also features a Cloud DVR. Unfortunately, NFL Network-exclusive games won’t be available because AT&T has decided to drop NFL Network and NFL RedZone from all DirecTV and U-Verse offerings.

YouTube TV

It is currently available only in select cities, but if you’re in one of those areas, you might want to take a look at YouTube TV. For $50 a month, you’re guaranteed to have CBS, NBC, and Fox, so you’ll be able to get your NFL fix on Sunday (based around your in-market games, of course), Sunday night, and Thursday night for most games this season. It also has ESPN for Monday Night Football, but no NFL Network or RedZone. The service also comes with a cloud DVR system, but with some restrictions.

PlayStation Vue

PlayStation Vue — which isn’t limited to PlayStation owners despite the name — offers four subscription levels starting at $50 per month for the Access package. For our purposes, though, you’ll likely want to start with the Core package at $55 per month, which includes NFL Network for Thursday Night Football, as well as a few Monday, Saturday, and Sunday broadcasts. You should also get local broadcasts of games too, depending on where you live.

Users can upgrade to The Sports Pack which comes with NFL RedZone for $10 a month. Vue also includes DVR recording capabilities (with some channel and time-limit restrictions, of course) and, along with PlayStation 3 and PS4 hardware, it’s available to stream via apps on Amazon Fire TV devices, iOS, Apple TV, Android, Chromecast, and Roku devices.

Hulu with Live TV

Hulu’s live tv subscription is proving to be a favorite for a lot of cord-cutters. At $45 per month, you get access to Monday Night Football on ESPN, Sunday Night Football on NBC, and other nationally broadcasted games throughout the week on CBS and Fox. Like most other online subscriptions, your locally televised games may or may not air, depending on where you live. Unlike most other services, you also get access to Hulu’s original programming and on-demand content as part of your package. You don’t, however, get access to NFL Network or RedZone, and if you want to DVR a game you have to pay an extra $15 a month to fast-forward commercials.

Fubo TV

Yet another live TV streaming service, FuboTV is all about sports, so it makes sense it would serve up some NFL action. That said, even though its packages start at $55 per month, it has a huge hole in its coverage: No ESPN. It does, however, carry NFL Network, and depending on your area, local affiliates for Sunday games, as well as an option to add NFL RedZone for another $9 per month through the Sports Plus package. This service will mostly appeal to those into all kinds of sports, including college football nuts, but you may want to check what’s available in your area before signing up. Supported devices include computers, Roku, Apple TV, Fire TV, Android and iOS devices, and Chromecast.

CBS All Access

If you’re not committed to a fantasy team or only watch the NFL casually, CBS All Access might be an option for you. For $6 a month, you get live access to CBS’ AFC games on Sundays. This is the cheapest subscription on the list, but that’s because you’re missing way more games than you get, and most people can access in-market games with a simple HD antenna anyway. Still, if you’re looking to tiptoe your way into football fandom, All Access is a decent starting point, and shows like Star Trek: Discovery alone could make it worthwhile for some.

NFL mobile app

It used to be that only those paying a hefty Verizon bill every month could get NFL streaming on their phones, but as of 2017, everyone can get in on it regardless of carrier. The NFL mobile app and Verizon’s portfolio of streaming properties — including Yahoo Sports and its go90 service — will stream “in-market and national games, including national pre-season, regular season, playoff games, and the Super Bowl nationwide to sports fans,” on mobile devices, along with highlights and other content. The biggest drawback is that, unless you can find a workaround, you’ll be stuck watching on your phone as the app blocks mirroring to your TV from most devices.

NFL GamePass (sort of)

Launched in 2015, NFL.com offers a subscription streaming option called GamePass, but it isn’t as desirable as you might think. For $100 or four installments of $30, a GamePass subscription allows you to stream any regular-season game after it’s aired, and lets you rewatch games going back to 2009. Obviously, the biggest draw to watching sports is watching the game unfold in real-time, so this option doesn’t offer much for most fans. But GamePass is a great choice for fans who can’t watch games live or just students of the game, and it’s also a great place to catch live preseason games ahead of the season.

Pay TV subscription required

These options require you (or someone who likes you very much) to have an active pay TV subscription with one of several providers, which (as noted by the Streaming Observer’s Chris Branton), includes some of the live TV streaming services mentioned above, such as Sling TV.

Fox Sports Go

Football fans with a pay-TV subscription will appreciate the Fox Sports Go app, which gives access to dozens of streamable NFL games. Compatible devices include Chromecast, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV devices, Android TV, and both iOS and Android mobile devices. You can also watch on your browser.

NBC airs Sunday Night Football games (including the season opener on Thursday, September 5) throughout the regular season and the network also streams the games online via its app and NBCSports.com, available with your pay-TV credentials. The NBC Sports app is available on Chromecast, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox, PlayStation 4, iOS, and Android supported devices. The NBC Sports app is actually pretty sweet if your interests go beyond football, too. PGA, Premier League soccer, and the Olympics all air on NBC, so the app is pretty valuable even after football season.

NFL Network online

If you want to go straight to the source, the NFL Network offers streaming access to its broadcast games and RedZone, depending on your cable or satellite provider. As mentioned above, RedZone’s scoring storm showing any team close to putting up points, often splitting the screen between multiple games, is the big-ticket item. If you’re a fantasy guru, this is also a great way to stay on top of all your players. You (or someone you know) will need to purchase the NFL Network from your cable or satellite provider to get it.

WatchESPN

WatchESPN is an online-only companion service that lets you stream live Monday Night Football. For now, you must have a paid subscription to a compatible pay-TV service to use the app, but the good news is the app has gotten a lot better in recent years, losing a lot of its stuttering ways. ESPN only holds the rights to air Monday Night Football games, meaning it won’t work for Sunday games, and, in case you were wondering, the stand-alone app, ESPN+, does not carry the NFL.

Here’s everything you need to know — and possibly, a few products and services you’ll want to buy or try out during free trials — to watch NFL games during the 2019 season.

The methods for watching NFL games change often as the league signs new contracts and streaming services change their policies, and we’re always updating this guide with the latest broadcast info.

With so many good matchups, you’re probably looking for a way to catch the action online. Here are the best ways to live stream NFL games.

For Cabland Satellite Subscriberse 

NFL RedZone: If you have a cable TV subscription, NFL RedZone lets you watch a football game’s most exciting moments. The service broadcasts live coverage from every game on a given Sunday, but only when a team is in the “red zone,” or about to potentially score a touchdown. Because it also gives you real-time fantasy stats and extended highlights, it’s especially useful for fantasy-football fans.

NFL RedZone games air between 1 p.m. ET and the end of the late-afternoon games on Sundays during the NFL season. You can watch RedZone from your cable or satellite provider’s streaming service or on a variety of apps for smartphones, tablets and connected devices like Apple TV and PlayStation 4. You can also watch games in a web browser.

NFL Sunday Ticket: DirecTV subscribers have one of the simplest paths to streaming full NFL games in NFL Sunday Ticket. This service streams live games in their entirety to televisions, computers, Android and iOS devices, and game consoles. Sunday Ticket applies only to out-of-market games.

You can also get NFL Sunday Ticket as a stand-alone service — but only if you live in an area that doesn’t get DirecTV service.

Watch ESPN: If you subscribe to a cable package that includes ESPN, and most do, you can stream live ESPN programming from just about any device. Simply use your computer, smartphone, set-top box, game console or another connected device to download the ESPN app, then sign in with your cable providerꞌs information. When ESPN airs Monday Night Football, log into the app and enjoy the game.

If you really want to watch football but donꞌt have any desire to clutter up your TV with a cable subscription, Sling TV provides a middle ground. This streaming live-TV service offers ESPN on its $25-per-month Sling Orange service, and Fox and Fox Sports on its $25-per-month Sling Blue service.

The NFL mobile app and Verizon’s portfolio of streaming properties — including Yahoo Sports and its go90 service — will stream “in-market and national games, including national pre-season, regular season, playoff games, and the Super Bowl nationwide to sports fans,” on mobile devices, along with highlights and other content. The biggest drawback is that, unless you can find a workaround, you’ll be stuck watching on your phone as the app blocks mirroring to your TV from most devices.

NFL GamePass (sort of)

Launched in 2015, NFL.com offers a subscription streaming option called GamePass, but it isn’t as desirable as you might think. For $100 or four installments of $30, a GamePass subscription allows you to stream any regular-season game after it’s aired, and lets you rewatch games going back to 2009. Obviously, the biggest draw to watching sports is watching the game unfold in real-time, so this option doesn’t offer much for most fans. But GamePass is a great choice for fans who can’t watch games live or just students of the game, and it’s also a great place to catch live preseason games ahead of the season.

Pay TV subscription required

These options require you (or someone who likes you very much) to have an active pay TV subscription with one of several providers, which (as noted by the Streaming Observer’s Chris Branton), includes some of the live TV streaming services mentioned above, such as Sling TV.

Fox Sports Go

Football fans with a pay-TV subscription will appreciate the Fox Sports Go app, which gives access to dozens of streamable NFL games. Compatible devices include Chromecast, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV devices, Android TV, and both iOS and Android mobile devices. You can also watch on your browser.

NBC airs Sunday Night Football games (including the season opener on Thursday, September 5) throughout the regular season and the network also streams the games online via its app and NBCSports.com, available with your pay-TV credentials. The NBC Sports app is available on Chromecast, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox, PlayStation 4, iOS, and Android supported devices. The NBC Sports app is actually pretty sweet if your interests go beyond football, too. PGA, Premier League soccer, and the Olympics all air on NBC, so the app is pretty valuable even after football season.

NFL Network online

If you want to go straight to the source, the NFL Network offers streaming access to its broadcast games and RedZone, depending on your cable or satellite provider. As mentioned above, RedZone’s scoring storm showing any team close to putting up points, often splitting the screen between multiple games, is the big-ticket item. If you’re a fantasy guru, this is also a great way to stay on top of all your players. You (or someone you know) will need to purchase the NFL Network from your cable or satellite provider to get it.

WatchESPN

WatchESPN is an online-only companion service that lets you stream live Monday Night Football. For now, you must have a paid subscription to a compatible pay-TV service to use the app, but the good news is the app has gotten a lot better in recent years, losing a lot of its stuttering ways. ESPN only holds the rights to air Monday Night Football games, meaning it won’t work for Sunday games, and, in case you were wondering, the stand-alone app, ESPN+, does not carry the NFL.

Here’s everything you need to know — and possibly, a few products and services you’ll want to buy or try out during free trials — to watch NFL games during the 2019 season.

The methods for watching NFL games change often as the league signs new contracts and streaming services change their policies, and we’re always updating this guide with the latest broadcast info.

With so many good matchups, you’re probably looking for a way to catch the action online. Here are the best ways to live stream NFL games.

For Cabland Satellite Subscriberse 

NFL RedZone: If you have a cable TV subscription, NFL RedZone lets you watch a football game’s most exciting moments. The service broadcasts live coverage from every game on a given Sunday, but only when a team is in the “red zone,” or about to potentially score a touchdown. Because it also gives you real-time fantasy stats and extended highlights, it’s especially useful for fantasy-football fans.

NFL RedZone games air between 1 p.m. ET and the end of the late-afternoon games on Sundays during the NFL season. You can watch RedZone from your cable or satellite provider’s streaming service or on a variety of apps for smartphones, tablets and connected devices like Apple TV and PlayStation 4. You can also watch games in a web browser.

NFL Sunday Ticket: DirecTV subscribers have one of the simplest paths to streaming full NFL games in NFL Sunday Ticket. This service streams live games in their entirety to televisions, computers, Android and iOS devices, and game consoles. Sunday Ticket applies only to out-of-market games.

You can also get NFL Sunday Ticket as a stand-alone service — but only if you live in an area that doesn’t get DirecTV service.

Watch ESPN: If you subscribe to a cable package that includes ESPN, and most do, you can stream live ESPN programming from just about any device. Simply use your computer, smartphone, set-top box, game console or another connected device to download the ESPN app, then sign in with your cable providerꞌs information. When ESPN airs Monday Night Football, log into the app and enjoy the game.

If you really want to watch football but donꞌt have any desire to clutter up your TV with a cable subscription, Sling TV provides a middle ground. This streaming live-TV service offers ESPN on its $25-per-month Sling Orange service, and Fox and Fox Sports on its $25-per-month Sling Blue service.

To get both ESPN and Fox costs $40 per month, which puts Sling somewhere in the neighborhood of a traditional cable package. But itꞌs much easier to watch Sling remotely, and it works with a huge variety of mobile devices, game consoles and smart TVs.

A current promotion is knocking 40% off the normal $25 monthly rate, so you’d just pay $15 for SlingTV.VIEW DEAL

NFL Game Pass: There is one extremely easy way to watch any NFL game you want online, but it comes with a huge caveat: You have to wait until the game is over. Still, if you can keep yourself from finding out last nightꞌs score, NFL Game Pass will charge you $74.99 per year for the privilege of streaming any game to your computer, mobile device or set-top box.

Game Pass also lets you watch select preseason games, listen to local radio broadcasts of games and watch condensed versions that squeeze an entire game into 30 minutes. While watching the game in real time is arguably half the fun of live sports, thereꞌs something to be said for setting your own schedule.

CBS All Access: CBS All Access is another ideal option for watching games online. In addition to a back catalog of CBS shows, plus some streaming-only shows like Star Trek: Discovery, this service also lets you watch your local CBS station and the game in your market as it airs.

For $6 per month, you can watch the service on most set-top boxes, gaming consoles, mobile devices and computers with limited commercial interruption. If you fork over $10 a month for the service, you’ll get all that commercial-free.

Amazon: Amazon is now streaming live NFL games after it acquired the contract for Thursday Night Football broadcast rights. As long as you have Amazon Prime Video, you can watch Thursday Night Football on the service without ever needing to pay extra. That said, the NFL has retained the rights to five Thursday Night Football games that it airs exclusively on the NFL Network. Amazon Prime Video cannot air those games.

Bypass NFL Game Pass Blackouts with a VPN

Some internet users seem to have found a workaround with NFL Game Pass that lets them watch games live by using a VPN service.

Many online guides suggest that if you use a VPN to make it look like you’re located in Europe, and use that to sign up for the European version of NFL Game Pass, you’ll be able to watch any game you want live. Nearly every European country and former Soviet republic can access NFL Game Pass, but you might not want to pick the United Kingdom or Ireland as your “location,” because some blackouts apply there, too.

We’ve evaluated many VPN services, and our top pick is ExpressVPN. It meets the VPN needs of the vast majority of users, offering outstanding compatibility with most devices and impressive connection speeds. It’s also affordable at $12.95 per month. (Signing up for longer periods of six months or a year reduces the cost even more.)

Free Streaming Options

Yahoo Sports: The Yahoo Sports app for iOS and Android has replaced the old Verizon NFL Mobile app. It streams every NFL game that’s broadcast in your local TV market to your smartphone or tablet for free, including Monday Night Football and Thursday Night Football. You can also sign into your NFL Game Pass subscription and stream it from the Yahoo app.

DIY Streaming Solutions

HD Antenna Streaming Services: This option involves a bit of DIY industriousness, but if you want to catch local games, why not just set up your own stream? Services like Channel Master and Tablo allow you to hook up an HD antenna to a DVR box, then broadcast the stream — either live or recorded — to a set-top box, mobile device or computer just about anywhere in the world.

The cost varies depending on the HD antenna you get and the service you use, but the local channels themselves are free, and you wonꞌt have to jump through any NFL-sponsored hoops.

How to watch NFL games online, with or without cable

In 2019, your options for watching NFL action online are plentiful. Almost all of them will cost you in some way, but there are several avenues for catching nearly any game you want, from now until the big day when the Patriots, er, we mean any number of teams, wins the Super Bowl.

To help keep you close to the action, we’ve compiled this comprehensive guide on how to stream the entire 2019/2020 season online. Put on your jersey and find a comfortable spot to kick back — here’s your ticket to the NFL.

Note: Thanksgiving games are unfortunately not a part of Thursday Night Football. To get the games, you can either use an HD antenna to watch them on Fox, CBS, and NBC (for the night game) or sign up for one of the live TV streaming services listed below to potentially stream your local broadcast channels.

Sunday Night Football

The Sunday Night Football schedule is always complicated for streaming. While NFL Network gets all the games, 11 of them are available from multiple outlets.

In 2018, Fox paid a reported $3.3 billion to land telecast rights for those 11 games for five years, and those available down the road. Meanwhile, Amazon shelled out big bucks for TNF streaming rights, landing the same 11 games for its Amazon Prime Video service, as well as its Twitch video service.

Below is a list of all the TNF games planned for the 2019 season, including those on Fox (available for many with an HD antenna), Amazon Prime Video, and Twitch, as well as the full NFL Network TV schedule. (All games scheduled at 8:20 p.m. ET unless otherwise noted.)

As you can see, while there are great options for cord-cutters to watch most of TNF this year, you’ll have to get creative if you want to watch all of them. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered below.

NFL Sunday Ticket (a la carte)

If you live in a dorm, apartment complex, or city that doesn’t allow for access to DirecTV, you may be eligible to buy the company’s coveted NFL Sunday ticket package without having to sign up for satellite. The standard streaming package — which currently starts at $73.49 a month under a four-month promotional period — allows you to stream out-of-market games on your computer, smartphone, game console, or smart TV, no satellite required. You can find out more about this package, and whether or not you qualify, at the link above.

While this option represents one of the most comprehensive ways to watch the NFL, it does come with a few caveats. First, Sunday Ticket only grants users the ability to watch games on Sunday, without access to Sunday night, Thursday night, or Monday night contests. Local games are also subject to blackout, which means DirecTV is “restricted from showing events near where a game is played or broadcast locally.”

Sling TV

Sling TV offers perhaps the best bang for your buck online, including options for ESPN, NFL Network, and the all-important RedZone Channel — but like a lot of online relationships, it’s complicated.

The package is broken up into two segments, including Sling Orange and Sling Blue. With Sling Orange, you can watch Monday night games on ESPN for $25 a month, but you’ll be restricted to streaming from one device at a time, and there’s no NFL Network or option to purchase NFL RedZone. At the same price, Sling Blue users get access to NFL Network, and the ability to stream to multiple devices, as well as possibly watching games on NBC and Fox (depending on where you live), but you don’t get access to ESPN. You can, however, purchase the Sports Extra package for $10 a month and have NFL RedZone. Yes, it’s convoluted, but that’s where we are now.

For the best shot at the NFL season, we recommend going for the $40 package, which gets you both Sling Blue and Orange and then adding Sports Extra for RedZone. You also get a Cloud DVR, but it isn’t available for ESPN networks. Sure, it gets a bit pricey, but you do get pretty much everything you need for NFL streaming (shy of the full Sunday Ticket package, of course), and you can always drop after the season.

AT&T TV Now (formerly DirecTV Now)

AT&T knows that cord-cutting is popular, so the company has followed suit with competitors in creating an online-only TV service, AT&T TV Now (formerly DirecTV Now). Prices start at $50 per month for the entry-level package, which gets you more than 45 channels — including ESPN for your Monday Night Football fix.

If you’re lucky, you might also be able to watch live Sunday football on CBS and Fox, Sunday Night Football on NBC, and Thursday games on Fox, but live local channels are only offered in select cities — you can find out if you get them with this handy tool. The package also features a Cloud DVR. Unfortunately, NFL Network-exclusive games won’t be available because AT&T has decided to drop NFL Network and NFL RedZone from all DirecTV and U-Verse offerings.

YouTube TV

It is currently available only in select cities, but if you’re in one of those areas, you might want to take a look at YouTube TV. For $50 a month, you’re guaranteed to have CBS, NBC, and Fox, so you’ll be able to get your NFL fix on Sunday (based around your in-market games, of course), Sunday night, and Thursday night for most games this season. It also has ESPN for Monday Night Football, but no NFL Network or RedZone. The service also comes with a cloud DVR system, but with some restrictions.

PlayStation Vue

PlayStation Vue — which isn’t limited to PlayStation owners despite the name — offers four subscription levels starting at $50 per month for the Access package. For our purposes, though, you’ll likely want to start with the Core package at $55 per month, which includes NFL Network for Thursday Night Football, as well as a few Monday, Saturday, and Sunday broadcasts. You should also get local broadcasts of games too, depending on where you live.

Users can upgrade to The Sports Pack which comes with NFL RedZone for $10 a month. Vue also includes DVR recording capabilities (with some channel and time-limit restrictions, of course) and, along with PlayStation 3 and PS4 hardware, it’s available to stream via apps on Amazon Fire TV devices, iOS, Apple TV, Android, Chromecast, and Roku devices.

Hulu with Live TV

Hulu’s live tv subscription is proving to be a favorite for a lot of cord-cutters. At $45 per month, you get access to Monday Night Football on ESPN, Sunday Night Football on NBC, and other nationally broadcasted games throughout the week on CBS and Fox. Like most other online subscriptions, your locally televised games may or may not air, depending on where you live. Unlike most other services, you also get access to Hulu’s original programming and on-demand content as part of your package. You don’t, however, get access to NFL Network or RedZone, and if you want to DVR a game you have to pay an extra $15 a month to fast-forward commercials.

Fubo TV

Yet another live TV streaming service, FuboTV is all about sports, so it makes sense it would serve up some NFL action. That said, even though its packages start at $55 per month, it has a huge hole in its coverage: No ESPN. It does, however, carry NFL Network, and depending on your area, local affiliates for Sunday games, as well as an option to add NFL RedZone for another $9 per month through the Sports Plus package. This service will mostly appeal to those into all kinds of sports, including college football nuts, but you may want to check what’s available in your area before signing up. Supported devices include computers, Roku, Apple TV, Fire TV, Android and iOS devices, and Chromecast.

CBS All Access

If you’re not committed to a fantasy team or only watch the NFL casually, CBS All Access might be an option for you. For $6 a month, you get live access to CBS’ AFC games on Sundays. This is the cheapest subscription on the list, but that’s because you’re missing way more games than you get, and most people can access in-market games with a simple HD antenna anyway. Still, if you’re looking to tiptoe your way into football fandom, All Access is a decent starting point, and shows like Star Trek: Discovery alone could make it worthwhile for some.

NFL mobile app

It used to be that only those paying a hefty Verizon bill every month could get NFL streaming on their phones, but as of 2017, everyone can get in on it regardless of carrier. The NFL mobile app and Verizon’s portfolio of streaming properties — including Yahoo Sports and its go90 service — will stream “in-market and national games, including national pre-season, regular season, playoff games, and the Super Bowl nationwide to sports fans,” on mobile devices, along with highlights and other content. The biggest drawback is that, unless you can find a workaround, you’ll be stuck watching on your phone as the app blocks mirroring to your TV from most devices.

But GamePass is a great choice for fans who can’t watch games live or just students of the game, and it’s also a great place to catch live preseason games ahead of the season.

Football fans with a pay-TV subscription will appreciate the Fox Sports Go app, which gives access to dozens of streamable NFL games. Compatible devices include Chromecast, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV devices, Android TV, and both iOS and Android mobile devices. You can also watch on your browser.

NBC airs Sunday Night Football games (including the season opener on Thursday, September 5) throughout the regular season and the network also streams the games online via its app and NBCSports.com, available with your pay-TV credentials. The NBC Sports app is available on Chromecast, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox, PlayStation 4, iOS, and Android supported devices. The NBC Sports app is actually pretty sweet if your interests go beyond football, too. PGA, Premier League soccer, and the Olympics all air on NBC, so the app is pretty valuable even after football season.

NFL Network online

If you want to go straight to the source, the NFL Network offers streaming access to its broadcast games and RedZone, depending on your cable or satellite provider. As mentioned above, RedZone’s scoring storm showing any team close to putting up points, often splitting the screen between multiple games, is the big-ticket item.

The Chicago Marathon 2019

The Chicago Marathon 2019: Live Stream Bank of America Half Marathon This year’s event has a killer men’s field and a women’s field that could produce a new American record. With only five days until one of the biggest running events of the year  On Sunday, October 13 at 7:00am US Easter..Read Now..”Chicago Marathon 2019”

CLICK HERE TO WATCH NOW

More than 45,000 runners from 50 states and more than 100 countries will navigate the streets of the Windy City for Chicago Marathon 2019 Live this weekend.

Held every October, the Chicago Marathon is one of six World Marathon Majors, along with the races held in Boston, New York, London, Berlin and Tokyo. The first edition of this race was held in 1977, and it’s taken place every year since, except for 1987.

Before the 42nd Chicago Marathon takes place on Sunday, here’s everything you need to know for this year’s race.

On Sunday, October 13, nearly 45,000 elites, seasoned runners, celebrities, and newbie marathoners will charge to the finish line in Chicago’s Grant Park during the Chicago Marathon, a race so pancake-flat and well-supported by spectators that fast times are almost guaranteed.

Since the marathon’s founding in 1977, the event has witnessed world-class athletes break numerous records, race-day temperatures ranging from as high as the upper 80s to as low as the 20s, thousands of sports drinks and energy gels being consumed, and too many finish line celebrations to count. Here, we’re giving you a rundown of the marathon—including facts and figures about field size, past winners, and weather stats—plus a preview of the 2019 race.
How the Chicago Marathon Came to Be

In 1977, Michael Bilandic, who was then the mayor of Chicago and an enthusiastic runner, threw his support behind putting on a race along the downtown streets of the Windy City. The Chicago Marathon was dreamed up by five founders, including original race director Wendy Miller, in November of 1976, and officially kicked off on September 25, 1977.

When: Sunday, October 13

Start time: 8:30 a.m. ET/7:30 a.m. CT

Course map: Available on ChicagoMarathon.com

Road Closures: More than 40 streets will be closed beginning at 7 a.m. CT, and they’re not scheduled to reopen until between 10 a.m.-6 p.m. CT. A full list of closures can be found at ChicagoMarathon.com.
The History of the Berlin Marathon

Chicago Marathon 2019

Fees for that debut event were just $5, and more than 4,200 runners showed up to compete—including 8-year-old Wesley Paul, who finished in 3:15:20—making the Mayor Daley Marathon (named after former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley) the largest 26.2-mile race in the world at the time. The 1977 men’s winner was Indiana native Dan Cloeter, who ran 2:17:52, while Texan Dorothy Doolittle won the women’s race in 2:50:47.

The enormous success of that debut marathon not only established the annual race for years to come, but it also set other running initiatives into motion. Under Bilandic’s hand, what was once an old equestrian trail along Lake Michigan was paved into a five-mile running path, which eventually became the 18-mile lakefront route that Chicago runners know and love today.
Past Winners and Prize Money

Since the event’s founding, Chicago has grown tremendously in size and talent. The combination of a deep field, fast course, and a sizable prize purse has attracted the best of the best over the years.
What You Need to Know About the Marathon Majors

In 1982, race organizers awarded winners with prize money for the first time; that year, Americans Greg Meyer (2:10:59) and Nancy Conz (2:33:23) each took home $12,000. In 2018, Mo Farah and Brigid Kosgei each won $100,000 for breaking the tape, while wheelchair division winners Daniel Romanchuk and Manuela Schär took home $15,000. Chicago also offers a $75,000 bonus for runners who set the course record, and a $5,000 bonus for wheelchair athletes who do.

Four marathon world records have been set on the course: in 1984, Steve Jones set the men’s record of 2:08:05; Khalid Khannouchi set the men’s record of 2:05:42 in 1999; Catherine Ndereba set the mixed-gender women’s record of 2:18:47 in 2001; and Paula Radcliffe lowered that mark to 2:17:18 in 2002.

Radcliffe’s time is still the current women’s course record for Chicago, while Dennis Kimetto owns the course record for men, 2:03:45, which he ran in 2013.
Here are the past 10 male and female winners, respectively, of the Chicago Marathon:

2018: Mo Farah of Great Britain (2:05:11), Brigid Kosgei of Kenya (2:18:35)
2017: Galen Rupp of USA (2:09:20), Tirunesh Dibaba of Ethiopia (2:18:31)
2016: Abel Kirui of Kenya (2:11:23), Florence Kiplagat of Kenya (2:21:32)
2015: Dickson Chumba of Kenya (2:09:25), Florence Kiplagat of Kenya (2:23:33)
2014: Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya (2:04:11), Mare Dibaba of Ethiopia (2:25:37)
2013: Dennis Kimetto of Kenya (2:03:45), Rita Jeptoo of Kenya (2:19:57)
2012: Tsegaye Kebede of Ethiopia (2:04:38), Atsede Baysa of Ethiopia (2:22:03)
2011: Moses Mosop of Kenya (2:05:37), Ejegayehu Dibaba of Ethiopia (2:22:09)
2010: Samuel Wanjiru of Kenya (2:06:23), Atsede Baysa of Ethiopia (2:23:40)
2009: Samuel Wanjiru of Kenya (2:05:41), Irina Mikitenko of Germany (2:26:31)
2008: Evans Cheruiyot of Kenya (2:06:25), Lidiya Grigoryeva of Russia (2:27:17)

Field Size and Weather

While Chicago’s flat course certainly contributed to fast performances in the past, the infectious atmosphere, competitive field, and weather on race day has helped, too. In 2007, the race began capping its field at 45,000 participants, making the it more than 10 times larger than it was 30 years prior. Every year since then, more than 40,000 runners have participated in Chicago; in 2018, 44,571 runners crossed the finish line in Grant Park.

In 2007, marathoners suffered record-high temps of 89 degrees and 73 percent humidity on race day. In 1988—the coldest race ever recorded—they endured temps as low as 21 degrees. In 1993, participants ran through snow. Last year, conditions were damp and rainy, which produced slick spots on the road and air that felt warmer than usual, because of the humidity. The average highs/lows in early October for Chicago is usually in the lows 60s to low 40s.
How to Get In

Registration dates usually aren’t announced until race weekend, but in years past, you’d apply for the lottery starting in October, then find out in December. You’re guaranteed entry if you already ran the race five or more times over the last decade. (Find more information on the registration process, including how to run for charity, on the Chicago Marathon website.)

To secure guaranteed entry, you have to hit a time standard between January 1 and when registration usually closes in late November.

Here are the current time standards for Chicago, broken down by age group:

16 to 29 years old (3:05 for men, 3:35 for women)
30 to 39 (3:10 for men, 3:40 for women)
40 to 49 (3:20 for men, 3:50 for women)
50 to 59 (3:35 for men, 4:20 for women)
60 to 69 (4:00 for men, 5:00 for women)
70 to 79 (4:30 for men, 5:55 for women)

Because much of the route is flat as a pancake, and race day mornings are usually brisk, it can be hard to hold back in the early miles of Chicago—but no matter how good you feel from the gun, 26.2 miles is still a long ways to go, so proper pacing is key for staying strong through the finish.

The loop course starts and finishes in Grant Park along Lake Michigan; runners go northward for about eight miles, then turn back south, going past Lincoln Park and Old Town until they hit the halfway point, where they change directions and head east. For miles 14 through 19, runners pass through the West Loop and University Village, where they are cheered on by two enormous block parties along the course. During mile 20, the course turns westward again before heading back to the lakefront. Runners take a spin through Chinatown, then on mile 24, head toward Michigan Avenue via Indiana Avenue before kicking it in for the straightaway finish.

More than 45,000 runners from 50 states and more than 100 countries will navigate the streets of the Windy City for Chicago Marathon 2019 Live this weekend.

Held every October, the Chicago Marathon is one of six World Marathon Majors, along with the races held in Boston, New York, London, Berlin and Tokyo. The first edition of this race was held in 1977, and it’s taken place every year since, except for 1987.

Before the 42nd Chicago Marathon takes place on Sunday, here’s everything you need to know for this year’s race.

On Sunday, October 13, nearly 45,000 elites, seasoned runners, celebrities, and newbie marathoners will charge to the finish line in Chicago’s Grant Park during the Chicago Marathon, a race so pancake-flat and well-supported by spectators that fast times are almost guaranteed.

Since the marathon’s founding in 1977, the event has witnessed world-class athletes break numerous records, race-day temperatures ranging from as high as the upper 80s to as low as the 20s, thousands of sports drinks and energy gels being consumed, and too many finish line celebrations to count. Here, we’re giving you a rundown of the marathon—including facts and figures about field size, past winners, and weather stats—plus a preview of the 2019 race.
How the Chicago Marathon Came to Be

In 1977, Michael Bilandic, who was then the mayor of Chicago and an enthusiastic runner, threw his support behind putting on a race along the downtown streets of the Windy City. The Chicago Marathon was dreamed up by five founders, including original race director Wendy Miller, in November of 1976, and officially kicked off on September 25, 1977.

The History of the Berlin Marathon

Chicago Marathon 2019

Fees for that debut event were just $5, and more than 4,200 runners showed up to compete—including 8-year-old Wesley Paul, who finished in 3:15:20—making the Mayor Daley Marathon (named after former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley) the largest 26.2-mile race in the world at the time. The 1977 men’s winner was Indiana native Dan Cloeter, who ran 2:17:52, while Texan Dorothy Doolittle won the women’s race in 2:50:47.

The enormous success of that debut marathon not only established the annual race for years to come, but it also set other running initiatives into motion. Under Bilandic’s hand, what was once an old equestrian trail along Lake Michigan was paved into a five-mile running path, which eventually became the 18-mile lakefront route that Chicago runners know and love today.
Past Winners and Prize Money

Since the event’s founding, Chicago has grown tremendously in size and talent. The combination of a deep field, fast course, and a sizable prize purse has attracted the best of the best over the years.
What You Need to Know About the Marathon Majors

In 1982, race organizers awarded winners with prize money for the first time; that year, Americans Greg Meyer (2:10:59) and Nancy Conz (2:33:23) each took home $12,000. In 2018, Mo Farah and Brigid Kosgei each won $100,000 for breaking the tape, while wheelchair division winners Daniel Romanchuk and Manuela Schär took home $15,000. Chicago also offers a $75,000 bonus for runners who set the course record, and a $5,000 bonus for wheelchair athletes who do.

Four marathon world records have been set on the course: in 1984, Steve Jones set the men’s record of 2:08:05; Khalid Khannouchi set the men’s record of 2:05:42 in 1999; Catherine Ndereba set the mixed-gender women’s record of 2:18:47 in 2001; and Paula Radcliffe lowered that mark to 2:17:18 in 2002.

Radcliffe’s time is still the current women’s course record for Chicago, while Dennis Kimetto owns the course record for men, 2:03:45, which he ran in 2013.
Here are the past 10 male and female winners, respectively, of the Chicago Marathon:

2018: Mo Farah of Great Britain (2:05:11), Brigid Kosgei of Kenya (2:18:35)
2017: Galen Rupp of USA (2:09:20), Tirunesh Dibaba of Ethiopia (2:18:31)
2016: Abel Kirui of Kenya (2:11:23), Florence Kiplagat of Kenya (2:21:32)
2015: Dickson Chumba of Kenya (2:09:25), Florence Kiplagat of Kenya (2:23:33)
2014: Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya (2:04:11), Mare Dibaba of Ethiopia (2:25:37)
2013: Dennis Kimetto of Kenya (2:03:45), Rita Jeptoo of Kenya (2:19:57)

2011: Moses Mosop of Kenya (2:05:37), Ejegayehu Dibaba of Ethiopia (2:22:09)
2010: Samuel Wanjiru of Kenya (2:06:23), Atsede Baysa of Ethiopia (2:23:40)
2009: Samuel Wanjiru of Kenya (2:05:41), Irina Mikitenko of Germany (2:26:31)
2008: Evans Cheruiyot of Kenya (2:06:25), Lidiya Grigoryeva of Russia (2:27:17)

Field Size and Weather

While Chicago’s flat course certainly contributed to fast performances in the past, the infectious atmosphere, competitive field, and weather on race day has helped, too. In 2007, the race began capping its field at 45,000 participants, making the it more than 10 times larger than it was 30 years prior. Every year since then, more than 40,000 runners have participated in Chicago; in 2018, 44,571 runners crossed the finish line in Grant Park.

In 2007, marathoners suffered record-high temps of 89 degrees and 73 percent humidity on race day. In 1988—the coldest race ever recorded—they endured temps as low as 21 degrees. In 1993, participants ran through snow. Last year, conditions were damp and rainy, which produced slick spots on the road and air that felt warmer than usual, because of the humidity. The average highs/lows in early October for Chicago is usually in the lows 60s to low 40s.
How to Get In

Registration dates usually aren’t announced until race weekend, but in years past, you’d apply for the lottery starting in October, then find out in December. You’re guaranteed entry if you already ran the race five or more times over the last decade. (Find more information on the registration process, including how to run for charity, on the Chicago Marathon website.)

To secure guaranteed entry, you have to hit a time standard between January 1 and when registration usually closes in late November.

Here are the current time standards for Chicago, broken down by age group:

16 to 29 years old (3:05 for men, 3:35 for women)
30 to 39 (3:10 for men, 3:40 for women)
40 to 49 (3:20 for men, 3:50 for women)
50 to 59 (3:35 for men, 4:20 for women)
60 to 69 (4:00 for men, 5:00 for women)
70 to 79 (4:30 for men, 5:55 for women)
