The NFL on CBS brings fantastic football action to fans on Sunday afternoon all season long. The NFL on CBS schedule is traditionally filled with home games from AFC team cities, but in recent years the rules on broadcasts have become more flexible. Also CBS takes turns offering a double header of football, so many weeks they’ll broadcast two games back to back Sunday afternoons. 

Football fans often see their favorite local team as part of the NFL on CBS, and many of those fans will watch it online. Here's how to watch the NFL on CBS online, including this week’s Las Vegas Raiders vs. Kansas City Chiefs live stream game, including with a free trial of CBS All Access.

The NFL on CBS — Week 3 Raiders vs. Chiefs Preview

The Las Vegas Raiders (2-2) have been hot and cold this season, with two impressive wins followed by two deflating losses. At first, Jon Gruden’s team looked like the surprise team of the season, with the team scoring 34 points in both big wins over the Panthers and the Saints. In their second two games, a new pattern showed up as the Raiders stayed close through halftime only to fall way behind in the second half. 

The Patriots and Bills outscored the Raiders 38-20 in the second half of the last two games, so the Raiders need to focus on second half adjustments this week against the Chiefs. They get away from their excellent rusher Josh Jacobs in these games, so Raiders fans are hoping to see more running late against the Chiefs on Sunday.

The Kansas City Chiefs (4-0) continue to pass every test they’ve faced this season. Last weekend, it was a second straight Monday Night Football game after their matchup against the Patriots was delayed due to COVID-19 positive results. The Chiefs found it hard to run away from the Patriots early on, but the Chiefs defense forced four turnovers and turned one into a defensive touchdown. 

Even on a difficult day, star quarterback Patrick Mahomes managed two touchdowns and no interceptions. Expect Mahomes to come out firing to regain his form against Las Vegas, because he has a career 4-0 record with 11 touchdowns and only 1 interception against the Raiders.
