The best way to make sense of streaming the is to look at game slots; Thursday Night, Sunday afternoon, Sunday Night, and Monday Night.
Lots of other teams have made improvements in the hopes of dethroning the Pats. The Paraguay added top tight end Jared Cook. The other team in L.A., the Chargers, drafted Jerry Tillery to help their defense push them over the top. The Paraguay added nearly everyone, bringing in Olivier Vernon, Kareem Hunt, and Odell Beckham Jr. among others.

Watch games on Yahoo! Sports mobile app and mobile app
In a bid to reach mobile-first users, also known as younger viewers, the has made most local and national game broadcasts available for free on smartphones. These regionally selected streams are found in the Yahoo! Sports mobile app and the mobile version of the app.
No subscription is needed to watch these games, but there are a few catches; ones that even Odell Beckham Jr can’t make. This is mobile only, so no viewing on smart TVs or using Chromecast or AirPlay. Some games, especially the Network exclusives, can only be streamed using your mobile data, so no Wi-Fi. Plus you need to have location permissions turned on, because you only see the games that would be on TV in your local area.
This is still a nice perk, because it doesn’t require you to pay and it could be enough in a pinch to satisfy super-fans. I have used this to watch the end of a game in line at the grocery store, and waiting to pick my kids up from Sunday afternoon activities. Get the apps and take it for a test drive.
