NFL Network is broadcasting the Washington Football team vs. the New England Patriots for out-of-market viewers on August 12. We break down national and local broadcasting options, and how to watch the game via live stream.

NFL Network will be broadcasting one game on Thursday, August 12th for out-of-market viewers. The first game of Week 1 will feature the Washington Football Team and New England Patriots, both of whom face significant questions this year.

Washington is pivoting to journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick, but Taylor Heinicke will look to build on a late season showing. The Patriots drafted Mac Jones to compete with Cam Newton as they continue to try and figure out their post-Tom Brady identity.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out the NFL Network slate, you can stream the games via, the NFL Network app, and through NFL Gamepass. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription for these. If you don’t have a cable login, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the games.
