On Sunday, Aaron Rodgers carved up the Raiders with more than 400 yards passing and 5 touchdown throws (plus another rushing TD), Lamar Jackson outdueled Russell Wilson in a win over the Seahawks, the Cowboys moved into first place with a convincing win against the Eagles and the 49ers moved to 7-0 with a win over hapless Washington in one of the shortest games ever. You can see all of the Week 7 NFL results here.
Week 7 concludes in New Jersey with the New York Jets hosting the New England Patriots. Sam Darnold is back behind center for the Jets, while the ageless Tom Brady still leads the Pats. The Jets are looking for their second win in a row and the Pats are looking to stay undefeated and move to 7-0 on the season. And while you watch the titanic battle between the Empire from New England against the outmatched rebel force from New York, be on the lookout for the final trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker to drop (probably at halftime).
Tonight’s game between the Pats and Jets kicks off at 8:15 p.m. ET on ESPN. Here’s how cord cutters can watch Monday Night Football without cable — as well as the rest of the NFL games this season on Thursday nights and Sundays.
How can I watch my local team’s NFL games?
For teams in your local market — Jets fans in New York/New Jersey, Pats fans in New England, and so on — you’ll be able to watch your local team’s games on a major local network channel.
Games are typically broadcast on CBS and Fox on Sunday afternoons. National broadcasts are shown on NBC on Sunday nights, ESPN on Monday nights and the NFL Network on Thursday nights. Most of the Thursday night games are simulcast on Fox, Amazon Prime and Twitch. (Note that CBS is the parent company of CNET.)
There is also NFL RedZone to consider, a channel that springs to life each fall and shows live coverage from around the league with the promise to show you every touchdown from every Sunday afternoon game. It’s a great way to watch out-of-market action and essential viewing for fantasy football GMs.

Other stuff to know about live TV streaming services:
Note CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the services featured on this page.
PlayStation Vue offers all the networks that show NFL games, and you can add the NFL RedZone channel for $10 a month extra. The $55 Core plan is the cheapest option that includes the five channels NFL fans need — CBS, Fox, NBC, ESPN and NFL Network — and the $10-a-month Sports Pack will get you NFL RedZone. The Core plan is currently discounted to $45 a month for the first two months.
Sling TV splits its live NFL options across its $25-a-month Blue plan and $25-a-month Orange plan, which forces NFL fans into a tricky decision or encourages them to spring for both at $40 a month.
Sling Blue includes Thursday and Sunday games on NBC, Fox and the NFL Network. Sling Orange includes Monday night games on ESPN. And if you want to add the NFL RedZone, you’ll need Sling Blue. Blue — but not Orange — subscribers can add the $10-a-month Sports Extra package, which includes NFL RedZone. Sling TV does not offer CBS, which typically carries AFC games on Sunday afternoons.
Sling’s packages are discounted 40% for the first month.
Hulu with Live TV costs $45 a month and includes CBS, Fox, NBC and ESPN but not NFL Network or RedZone.
YouTube TV costs $50 a month and includes CBS, Fox, NBC and ESPN, but not NFL Network or RedZone.
FuboTV costs $55 a month and includes CBS, Fox, NBC and NFL Network but not ESPN. You’ll miss out on Monday Night Football on ESPN but will get the games on Sunday afternoons (CBS and Fox), Sunday nights (NBC) and Thursday nights (NFL Network). The $9-a-month Sports Plus package adds NFL RedZone.
CBS All Access costs $6 a month and lets you watch AFC matchups on Sunday afternoons. It makes for a good add-on for Sling TV subscribers, who don’t get CBS.
Prime Video will stream the Thursday Night Football games this season that will be simulcast on Fox. The games on Prime Video will also be streamed live on the Amazon-owned Twitch, which means you don’t need an Amazon Prime membership to stream Thursday night football.
