Watch 2021 NFL Playoffs Online Without Cable

One of the most packed weekends of NFL Playoffs in history is here with a total of six Wild Card games scheduled to be played between Saturday and Sunday. By Sunday night, six teams will have been eliminated while six others will advance.

Each of the six games will be televised on either CBS, Fox, NBC, or ABC/ESPN. New this year are some unusual simulcasts including the Bears vs Saints Wild Card game that will be on both CBS and Nickelodeon as the NFL seeks younger viewers.

Not everyone has access to a TV so if that’s you, here’s the best way to stream each of the 2021 NFL Playoffs Wild Card weekend games without cable on any of the aforementioned channels. You can do so on a phone, tablet, computer, Amazon Firestick or Fire TV, Roku, Apple TV or other smart Internet-enabled device.

CBS Games via Amazon Prime

The Colts at Bills (Saturday, 1:05 pm ET) and Bears at Saints (Sunday, 4:40 pm ET) games will be televised on CBS. Taking advantage of a free 7-day trial of CBS All Access via Amazon Prime for Prime Members allows you to stream either game, and upcoming CBS games including the big one, on CBS online for free. Then you can decide if you want to keep CBS All Access to watch future NFL games before the trial expires.

If you don’t have Amazon Prime yet, sign-up for a 30-day Prime free trial or a six-month free trial if you’re a student, then take advantage of the 7-day CBS All Access free trial and football will be at your fingertips or voice by saying “Alexa, watch football on CBS All Access.”
