Monday Night Football live stream: How to watch NFL games online from anywhere

Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills have been all smiles for most of the season, but still have something to play for heading into the postseason.

One final Monday Night Football game to close out what has been, to put it mildly, an extremely odd season. We've had more Monday night games than usual thanks to rescheduling. We've had more Tuesday night games than usual. Hell, we've had a Wednesday night game.

Regardless, we're closing things out and are getting ready for the playoffs with one of the teams that's been more fun to watch this year, and another that's had quite the downfall. The 11-3 Buffalo Bills head up to Foxborough, Mass., to face what's left of the 6-8 New England Patriots in a divisional matchup that doesn't really mean anything.

Buffalo already has won the AFC East, joining Pittsburgh, and Kansas City atop their respective divisions in the AFC. New England, meanwhile, is playing for that thing called pride and in all likelihood won't see the best team the Bills can put on the field.

That said, Buffalo has won four straight, and a fifth consecutive win would do a lot for their momentum before hosting Miami in the regular-season finale next week. (The Dolphins are going to need to win that game to make the playoffs on their own terms.) Buffalo can't do any better than third in the AFC, and they could fall to fourth should they lose their last two games. It's doubtful they'd want to let that happen without a fight.

So in other words, game on.

Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. Eastern time. The game, per usual, is on ESPN.

How to watch Monday Night Football live stream in the U.S.

The 2020 Monday Night Football season will be available on ESPN in the U.S. You can watch ESPN online on five of the largest live TV streaming services. 

Hulu with Live TV and some of the other services offer a variety of free trials, and it includes ESPN. Hulu also has tons of other live sports channels to watch a full Sunday of NFL action, along with other popular sports. (See all Hulu with Live TV channels.)

Sling TV’s Orange Plan offers the lowest regular price among the live streaming services, and it includes live ESPN stations in many local markets. Just be careful because the Blue Plan doesn’t come with ESPN. (See all Sling TV channels.)

And be sure to take advantage of that Sling TV free trial if you haven't already.

YouTube TV is the best recommended option for fans who want to see every NFL game. The service has all the broadcast networks plus ESPN and NFL Network, and now offers NFL RedZone for an additional cost. (See all YouTube TV channels.)

If you need help trying to decide between YouTube TV vs. Hulu, we've got you covered.

Fubo TV has a strong focus on sports, and includes ESPN for Monday Night Football games. (See all Fubo TV channels.)

AT&T TV Now includes ESPN, with Monday Night Football, on all of their plans starting with the $55 Access plan.

If you are OK with watching games only on your mobile devices, you can see Monday Night Football games for free in the U.S. in apps made by the NFL and Yahoo! The official NFL app, the official NFL team apps, the Yahoo! Fantasy app and even the Yahoo! Mail app will have local live streams of nationally televised games. These live streams will only work on your smartphones and some tablets, so don’t expect to watch them on your smart TVs.
