How to Live Stream the Saints-Falcons Game for Free

Drew Brees takes on Matt Ryan on NBC at 5:20 p.m. PT, 8:20 p.m. PT on NBC — and for free online

If you’re looking to catch the NFL’s Thanksgiving nightcap between the red-hot New Orleans Saints and the Atlanta Falcons, we’ve got you covered.

The matchup between the two NFC rivals kicks off at 5:20 p.m. PT, 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC. The Saints come into Thursday sporting a sterling 9-1 record behind quarterback Drew Brees and the league’s highest scoring offense. The Falcons are, well, not having as good of a season as the Saints, entering tonight’s matchup with a 4-6 record.

If you can’t catch the game on TV — or are looking to slink away from your irritating family for a few hours — there are several free streaming options.

The NFL app streams all NFL games, and the Yahoo Sports: Scores & News app streams CBS, Fox, and NBC games (including the entire league’s Thanksgiving slate), plus exclusive analysis and commentary.

However, both apps are only available on your smartphones, not via wifi, so check your data plans.

Also, if you’re willing to pay but don’t have cable (or a dependable antennae), there are plenty of TV-compatible options.

Sports-centric service FuboTV is the most robust, with live-streamed games from CBS, NBC, Fox, NFL Network and NFL Redzone.

NFL Network, NBC and Fox are all also available on Sling TV, DirecTV Now, YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, and PS Vue, all of which provide free trials for people who haven’t signed up yet.

Cable customers can also watch the game on the NBC app, using their service provider login.
