There’s no better way to comprehensively enjoy an entire Sunday of football than NFL RedZone. The channel, which jumps around from game to game and shows live coverage as teams get close to scoring or make a big play, has become a staple for both fantasy football players and NFL enthusiasts alike.
If you haven’t experienced it, you need to change that. It’s a game-changer for NFL viewing, and you don’t even need cable or a TV to watch. If you’ve cut the cable cord, or are looking to do so, you can still watch NFL RedZone online, on your phone or on another streaming device by signing up for a free trial of one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:

Week 9 Preview
For the uninitiated, NFL RedZone doesn’t have live coverage of nationally televised games, so no Sunday Night Football or Monday Night Football. Still, that leaves 10 games and seven straight hours of live coverage, highlights and seemingly endless touchdowns.
The most intriguing game of the week has to be the Kansas City Chiefs traveling to Dallas to take on the Cowboys. Two of the best young running backs in the league, two explosive offenses and two shaky defenses equals an over/under of 54 points, the highest of the week. And lots of points means lots of RedZone time.
Another game likely to get lots of coverage is the Falcons vs. Panthers. One of only two matchups (Kansas City vs. Dallas being the other) to feature two teams with a record above .500, this one will have major implications in the NFC South, where both squads are chasing the New Orleans Saints.
Other intriguing games on the Week 9 slate: Tampa Bay vs New Orleans has shootout potential and an over/under of 52. Brock Osweiler makes Denver a significant underdog against Philadelphia, but it will still be fun to see how Carson Wentz and a red-hot offense fares against the Broncos’ stout defense. The Redskins are reeling and banged up, but it’s not long ago they were playing extremely well, so they present a good matchup for a surging Seahawks team that just added left tackle Duane Brown.
And even if the rest of the games aren’t all that intriguing, you’ll only see them when something enticing is happening. That’s the beauty of RedZone.
