The New Orleans Saints (11-2) look to take one giant step toward clinching home -field advantage in the NFC playoffs when they host the spiraling Carolina Panthers (6-7) as Week 15 action concludes with Monday Night Football.
The game is scheduled to start at 8:15 p.m. ET and will be broadcast nationally on ESPN. If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can still watch a live stream of the game (or DVR it) on your computer, phone or streaming device by signing up for one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
In addition to a Netflix-like on-demand streaming library, Hulu also offers a bundle of 50-plus live TV channels, including all the ESPN channels. You can sign up for “Hulu with Live TV” right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the game on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your tablet or streaming device via the Hulu app.
If you can’t watch live, “Hulu with Live TV” also comes with 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of DVR space and the ability to fast forward through commercials).
ESPN and ESPN 2 are both included in the “Sling Orange” channel package. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial, and you can then watch a live stream of the game on your computer via the Sling TV website, or on your tablet or streaming device via the Sling TV app.

Despite a recent two-week stretch where the Saints were threatened by the Cowboys (loss) and Buccanneers (win), they remain optimistic and now unexpectedly sit in the driver’s seat in the NFC playoff picture after consecutive losses by the Rams.
Brees and company, including mark Ingram, are aware they need to play better as the division champs head into January. Ingram told reporters:
“We had a rough stretch there. Football is not a perfect game. Everything is not going to be perfect. Everything’s not going to be scripted exactly how you want to be.
“So, our defense and our special teams have been able to keep us in games and give us a chance to win versus Dallas. And it gave us a chance to be able to come back and go on our run in the second half right there to build a comeback and win the (Tampa Bay) game on the road.”
In the Panthers loss, they would all be eliminated from the NFC playoff race at 6-8. They would need three of the Vikings, Cowboys, Eagles and Redskins to stumble ahead of them in order to sneak in.
