How to watch the Vikings at Seahawks

Fortunately for cord-cutters, NBC is carried on the major streaming platforms. The hard part is picking out which one is right for you. 

Sling carries NBC on its Blue package in select markets for just $30 a month. But be aware that the low price means you aren't getting certain channels offered on Sling's Orange package, like ESPN. You can get both Blue and Orange for $45 per month. 

On the other hand, competing streaming giants also offer local channels. That's the case with Hulu With Live TV or AT&T TV Now, which each cost $55 per month, as well as YouTube TV and FuboTV at $65 per month each. Make sure to double-check each of their websites to find out what channels are available in your area.

Also be sure to find out what features each service offers, like if it offers RedZone from NFL Network. On FuboTV and YouTube TV, for instance, you can add NFL RedZone from NFL Network and other sports channels for $11 per month via add-ons. Sling offers a similar add-on for $10 per month.

Each service offers a free trial and can be used on popular devices like Roku, Apple TV  and Amazon Fire TV

Vikings at Seahawks preview

Week 5 finds these two NFC teams in very different positions. The Seahawks are undefeated through four games, and quarterback Russell Wilson has been the early-season favorite for the NFL's most valuable player after tossing 16 touchdowns and nearly 1,300 yards. 

The Vikings, meanwhile, showed some life in Week 4 and managed to defeat the Houston Texans for their first win of the season. But that victory came against the winless Houston Texans, who fired their coach Monday. They'll face a much bigger test Sunday night against the potent Seattle offense that hasn't scored less than 30 points this season. 

But the Seattle defense hasn't exactly been a brick wall. They've allowed each of their opponents to score at least 20 points this season. Taken together, Sunday night's game may be a high-scoring affair. 

These two teams last played in December 2019, when Seattle fended off a late-game comeback attempt from the Vikings and came away with a 37-30 win. Both teams were later knocked out of the playoffs during the second round.
