Are you ready for Preseason Week 4? The NFL has broadcast deals with several networks and streaming services, so you can watch any game you want, when you want, on a multitude of devices. The easiest way to watch all the NFL games live is to get cable TV—but “easiest” doesn’t always mean “least expensive.” Here, we’ve got answers to your questions about how to watch the NFL, both in the US and abroad.
ESPN, NBC, FOX, CBS, and the NFL Network broadcast NFL games. All NFL games are broadcast on over-the-air networks. On Sunday afternoons, there are a lot of different games being played at once.

2022 National Football League regular season (September 8th, 2022 to January 8th, 2023) The 2022 NFL season will kick off on Thursday, September 8.

There have been some recent variations from the norm, such as in 2019, when the Bears faced their rivals the Packers on Soldier Field in a nod to the NFL’s 100th season.
If you are anything like me, you are probably ready for the end of the preseason and the start of the regular season. The games through the first 2 weeks of the preseason have been highly unpredictable, which is exactly what you would expect. The harsh reality is that the best players on every team don’t see much action, while the play calling is vanilla across the board. We might see some more of the starters in the final week of preseason action, but I wouldn’t count on it. As always, we are going to pick some winners and losers for the coming week, but we again have to say that you should be careful when wagering on these games, as you never really know what you are going to get.
The Week 4 preseason NFL schedule starts right at 6:00pm ET and will not wrap up until well after midnight on the East Coast. But know that when the night is over, we will be less than one week from the official start of the 2022 NFL regular season.
