Want to watch the NFL on CBS but don’t have cable? CBS All Access has partnered with the NFL so you can stream local market games each Sunday to your computer, tablet or OTT device. It’s a concerted effort to allow viewers to watch football wherever they’re at, all without needing a cable or satellite subscription (or even a television) in your local market.
Obviously CBS All Access is about more than streaming football (although it doesn’t have to be). For as low as $5.99 a month, the service allows subscribers to stream hundreds of hit shows. The real benefit, however, lies in being able to watch CBS live wherever you are. If you got roped into a wedding, you’re stuck at a baby shower or you’re just a good mom or dad and want to be at your kid’s soccer game on Sunday, you can stream games directly to your tablet or laptop.

Two very good teams will be squaring off on “Thursday Night Football” as the Philadelphia Eagles and the Carolina Panthers will be putting their respective 4-1 records on the line in primetime. The Panthers are coming off of a pair of offensive explosions, whereas the Eagles have been steady all season. Carson Wentz has proven that he’s a strong quarterback, and Torrey Smith and Nelson Agholor have become reliable targets over the course of the season. The Eagles are coming off of a 34-7 trouncing of the Arizona Cardinals, and they’ll look to carry that offensive momentum.
For the Panthers, Devin Funchess has stepped up in a big way, and Cam Newton seems to have recovered from the loss of his favorite target Greg Olsen. Since an awful game against the Saints in Week 3, Newton has exploded for 671 yards, six touchdowns and only one interception in his last two games. The Panthers defense, while not quite the Panthers defense of old, has given up points towards the end of games — holding teams in check early. This will be a prove-it game for both teams as they try to stay atop their respective divisions.
