The NFL kicks off the 2020 regular season this evening when the Kansas City Chiefs open their Super Bowl title defense at Arrowhead Stadium against the Houston Texans. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET and the game will air on NBC.
If for some reason you won’t be in front of a television tonight, but still want to watch the game, you can find a live online stream at NBCSports.com/live. Some folks have access to other streaming services, and you can find the game on them, whether it be YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV.
The game is often a little bit delayed on live streams, but usually it’s only between 30 and 60 seconds behind the TV broadcast. That can impact you if you’re on Twitter during the game, but otherwise it’s an easy option.
The NFL is returning for an on-time start in spite of the pandemic, and anticipation is high. The first game back, especially after no preseason, would be worth a watch regardless, but having the Chiefs and Texans makes it all the better. Even with the Texans trading DeAndre Hopkins and Chiefs running back Damien Williams opting out of the season, there’s a ton of talent between these two teams. They put together a show in last year’s playoffs, and I suspect we see another fun one to open the season.
