How to watch Bucs vs. Washington in the Wild Card Round of the 2021 playoffs via live online stream

The 2021 NFL playoffs kick off with the AFC and NFC Wild Card Rounds. If you don’t have access to a TV to watch the game, we’ve got you squared away with live online stream options.

The NFL has closed out its regular 2020 season and kicks off the 2021 NFL Playoffs with the Wild Card Round. This round features the Washington Football team hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at FedExField on Saturday, January 9th. 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 Bucs and Washington Football team 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.
