ESPN+ is ramping up its lineup of NFL content for the 2022 season, including multiple live games and the first-ever ESPN+ exclusive matchup. In the past, ESPN+ has been lacking when it comes to live NFL coverage, so this year’s streaming schedule should make the service a better value for football fans.
Most of the NFL games on ESPN+ will be Monday Night Football matchups, which will also air on the ESPN cable channel and ABC. ESPN+ will also stream Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli, also known by fans as the Manningcast, during three weeks of the season.
ESPN+ costs $10 a month, and can also be bundled with Disney Plus and Hulu for a current starting price of $14 a month. The standard bundle price will increase to $15 a month starting December 8.
A total of nine NFL games are scheduled to stream on ESPN+ during the 2022 season, including five Monday Night matchups, a Wild Card playoff game, two Saturday games, and the NFL’s annual London game.
The London game on October 30 will be exclusive to ESPN+. Every other NFL game on ESPN+ will be simulcast by ESPN and/or ABC.
Though the ESPN cable network will broadcast additional NFL games throughout the season, not all of these matchups will stream on ESPN+. Unfortunately, that means there won’t be NFL games on ESPN+ during every week of the season.
Beyond live NFL games, ESPN+ features additional NFL content and analysis, including programs like “NFL Primetime,” “NFL Turning Point,” and “NFL Matchup.”
Chris Berman and Booger McFarland host the ESPN+ show “NFL Primetime.” The series recaps games every Sunday night during the season. There will be a total of 22 episodes.
Meanwhile, “NFL Matchup” is hosted by Sal Paolantonio and offers detailed breakdowns of the week’s upcoming games. New episodes are available to stream every Saturday morning.
“NFL Turning Point” is an ESPN+ show that examines game footage from the prior week for deep analysis. New “Turning Point” episodes are available every Wednesday.
ESPN+ members also get access to multiple exclusive articles on ESPN.com every week during the season. ESPN analysts like Bill Barnwell, Field Yates, and Mike Clay provide written analysis of the league and fantasy football advice.
Finally, Season four of Peyton Manning’s ESPN+ show “Peyton’s Places” will begin on October 30. The show features interviews with NFL players and coaches as Manning reflects on the league’s history. New episodes will air every Sunday during the season.
