The NFL has closed out its regular 2020 season and kicks off the 2021 NFL Playoffs with the Wild Card Round. This round features an AFC North divisional rivalry, with the Pittsburgh Steelers hosting the Cleveland Browns. The game kicks off at 8:15 p.m. ET and airs on NBC.

Plenty will be watching the game on TV, but if you’ve cut the cord on cable or otherwise don’t prefer cable, or just won’t be in front of your television, there are several options for live streaming the game.

NBC will stream the game on the NBC Sports App, but that requires a cable log-in. If you don’t have a cable subscription, there are quite a few streaming services offering free trials for one or two weeks. You can check YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV and be able to stream the matchup between the Browns and Steelers this week.

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.
