Week 8 NFL action is here, and there are a number of key football games on the Sunday schedule. If you’re looking to catch one — or more — of today’s games, we’ve got everything you need to know: What NFL teams are playing, when and on what network. 
Whether you’re trying to watch your local team play or catch and out-of-market game, we’ve got everything you need to get your Sunday NFL fix. Here’s how to watch all the Week 8 Sunday NFL football games airing on CBS, NBC, Fox and ESPN+ today.

The 2022 NFL regular season is scheduled to run 18 weeks and include 272 games in total. The season will run all the way to Super Bowl LVII on Feb. 12, 2023. (For the complete 2022 NFL season schedule, check out this 2022 NFL guide put together by our sister site CBS Sports.)
It’s Week 8 of the NFL season, and this Sunday, Oct. 30 there are plenty of great football games for you to watch. The only catch — they’re all spread out across four networks.
You can stream all of today’s games on your phone (and other mobile devices only) via NFL+; plans start at $5 per month.  But if you want the freedom to watch whatever game you want on Sunday, regardless of network, on your television, the best way to go is with a DirecTV Stream Choice streaming plan. That’s because Choice plans and higher include 2022 NFL Sunday Ticket Max, which offers access to any Sunday football game. You can even watch up to eight games at once.
The DirecTV Streaming Choice plans starts at $80 per month for the first five months (and $90 per month after), which will get you through the whole football season. You can get just NFL Sunday ticket if you’d like — plans start at $69. But given that you get access to more than 105 channels with a Choice streaming plan — including access to Monday games airing on ESPN — we think Choice is the smartest way to go.
DirecTV Streaming Choice, $80 per month for the first 5 months
There’s something unusual about the Week 8 NFL schedule: An early game airing on ESPN. On Sunday, Oct. 30, ESPN+ will be the home of the Denver Broncos – Jacksonville Jaguars game. The football action starts at 9:30 a.m. EDT / 6:30 a.m. PDT.
If you’re trying to catch this game, you’ll need ESPN+. The service runs $7 per month.
ESPN+, $7 monthly
There are five Week 8 NFL games airing on CBS today, but most of the action happens early. On Oct. 30 at 1 p.m. EDT / 10 a.m. PDT, CBS will be airing the Miami Dolphins – Detroit Lions game, the Las Vegas Raiders – New Orleans Saints game, the New England Patriots – New York Jets game and the Pittsburgh Steelers – Philadelphia Eagles game. That game you’ll see depends on where you live.
Then, at 4:05 p.m. EDT / 1:05 p.m. PDT CBS will air the Tennessee Titans – Houston Texans game.
You can watch your local game over-the-air via your current cable provider, using an HDTV tuner or stream these games on Paramount+. Again, we think the best value is with a DirecTV Streaming Choice plan, which offers access to all Sunday and Monday football games, regardless of region.
DirecTV Streaming Choice, $80/mo. for the first 5 months
Stream CBS football with the Walmart+ and Paramount+ bundle: $12.95 per month or $98 per year
Watch with an antenna: Amplified HDTV antenna, $29
There’s plenty of Week 8 football happening on Fox today. On Sunday, Oct. 30 at 1:00 p.m. EDT / 10:00 a.m. PDT, Fox will be airing the Carolina Panthers – Atlanta Falcons game, the Chicago Bears – Dallas Cowboys game and the Arizona Cardinals – Minnesota Vikings game. Again, what game you’ll see depends on where in the U.S. you live.
NFL on Fox continues at 4:25 p.m. EDT / 1:25 EDT with three more matchups: the Washington Commanders – Indianapolis Colts game, the San Francisco 49ers – Los Angeles Rams game and the New York Giants – Seattle Seahawks game.
There’s no dedicated Fox network streamer. So, to stream these games, the best way to go is with a DirecTV Streaming Choice plan.
DirecTV Streaming Choice, $80/mo. for the first 5 months
At 8:15 p.m. EDT (5:20 p.m. PDT) on Sunday, NBC will air the Green Bay Packers – Buffalo Bills game..
The most cost effective way to stream this football matchup is via the Peacock streaming service. Right now, you can subscribe to Peacock for just $4.99 per month. Click the button below to find out more.
A Paramount+ subscription includes live access to “NFL on CBS.” That’s the CBS slate of live, AFC Sunday games. The streamer also offers NFL fans the weekly studio show, “Inside the NFL,” and the pregame show “The NFL Today,” plus access to CBS Sports HQ, a 24/7 stream of unfiltered sports news, scores, highlights and analysis. 
Paramount+ has two subscriber tiers available — the $5 per month “Essential Plan,” a budget-minded tier with ads, and the $10 per month “Premium Plan,” which costs more but is ad-free. Paramount+ also offers a one-week free-trial period, so if you were thinking of trying the platform, you can catch a Sunday of football on CBS risk-free.
Paramount + subscription, $5 and up per month
Subscribers to the Walmart+ shopping service now get Paramount+ included in their subscription at no extra cost.
Walmart+ members now get free access to the ad-supported Paramount+ Essential plan. Paramount+ Essential includes tens of thousands of movies and TV episodes, including “Sonic the Hedgehog 2,” “Yellowstone” spin-off “1883,” “Star Trek: Lower Decks,” “NCIS” and “Survivor.” Perhaps most importantly, Essential plan members get access to NFL on CBS live.
Walmart+ and Paramount+ bundle: $12.95 per month or $98 per year
CBS Essentials and Paramount+ are both subsidiaries of Paramount.
“Sunday Night Football” will air weekly on NBC, and simultaneously stream live on Peacock. (You can also stream NBC via a live-TV streaming app, à la DirecTV Stream.) 
An important streaming heads-up: While Peacock offers plenty of ad-supported shows and movies for free, if you want access to Peacock’s premium content, including “Sunday Night Football,” you need a paid subscription.
Peacock Premium subscription: $4.99 per month
Paramount+ and Peacock aren’t the only ways to watch Sunday football. You might also want to consider options like DirecTV, which will offer access to all the Sunday football games: “NFL on Fox”, “Sunday Night Football” on NBC and more.
DirecTV Stream isn’t cheap, but it streams all the networks you’ll need for the 2022 NFL season. DirecTV Stream’s least-expensive tier, called “Entertainment,” offers Fox, CBS, NBC and ESPN for $70 a month. But get this: Subscribers to the $90 per month “Choice” tier (and above) get Fox, CBS, NBC and ESPN, plus regional sports networks and no-extra-cost access to 2022 NFL Sunday Ticket Max, a plan that streams every live out-of-market Sunday game (and usually runs $395).  
Right now, DirectTV Stream is offering new users $10 off their first five months. (Conditions apply, see site for details.)       
DirecTV Stream (“Choice” tier), $80 per month for the first 5 months
FuboTV is a sports-centric streaming service that offers access to almost every NFL game of the season. Packages include CBS, Fox, NBC, ESPN, NFL Network, NFL RedZone and more. 
Fox, so you know, offers Sunday NFC games via “NFL on Fox”; while ESPN is the home of “Monday Night Football.” ABC airs some “MNF” games, too. 
In addition to NFL football, FuboTV offers MLB, NBA, NHL, MLS and international soccer games.
FuboTV, starting at $70 per month
ESPN+ will simulcast some of ESPN’s “MNF” games, but it includes access to very few live NFL games. During the 2022 NFL season, ESPN+ will exclusively broadcast one single game: Denver Broncos vs. Jacksonville Jaguars on October 30. (The game will take place at Wembley Stadium in London at 9:30 a.m. ET.)
This means, if you truly want to the ability to stream every single game of the season, you’ll need access to ESPN+ — at least for the month of October. The $7 per month streaming service does not currently offer a free trial. 
ESPN+, $7 monthly
Another way you can gain access to ESPN+ is through the Disney+ bundle, which includes Disney+, Hulu’s most basic ad-supported plan and ESPN+ for $14 a month. If you’re wondering what else you can watch with the Disney+ bundle, check out our guide on what to watch on Disney+ and what to watch on Hulu this month
Disney+ bundle, $14 monthly
NFL+ lets you stream games exclusively on your mobile device or tablet. Starting at $5 per month or $30 annually, an NFL+ subscription gives you mobile or tablet access to live out-of-market preseason games, live local and primetime regular season and postseason games, live game audio for every game and more.
NFL+, $5 and up per month
If you don’t want to watch on your phone, you’ll need access to NFL Network, which many of the streamers listed below offer.
