It’s an all-Ohio game tonight on “Monday Night Football” — the Cincinnati Bengals (4-3) are facing off against the Cleveland Browns (2-5). But this Week 8 NFL game won’t be broadcast over-the-air by ABC. Tonight’s “MNF” matchup is happening on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN Desportes.
Here’s what you need to know to stream tonight’s “Monday Night Football” game on your phone and home TV, even if you don’t have a cable TV provider.

The 2022 NFL regular season is scheduled to run over 18 weeks, and include 272 games in total. For more on how to watch every NFL game of the season, check out our more comprehensive NFL streaming guide.
Week 8 of the 2022 NFL season concludes Oct. 31 at 8:15 p.m. EDT (5:15 p.m. PDT) on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes. This week, “MNF” will be broadcasting the Cincinnati Bengals – Cleveland Browns game.
(For the complete 2022 NFL season schedule, check out this guide put together by our sister site, CBS Sports.)
If you’ve got a cable package that includes ESPN, you should be all set to watch the Cincinnati Bengals – Cleveland Browns game on “MNF”.
Otherwise, if you’re looking for a way to stream all the NFL games this season, including out-of-market Sunday games, we think the best way to go is DirecTV Stream with 2022 Sunday NFL Ticket Max. The Choice streaming package, just $80 per month for the first five months ($90 per month thereafter), offers access to all the major networks that air NFL games, including ESPN. Plus, it includes access to 2022 Sunday NFL Ticket Max, which lets you stream any football game, regardless of where you live.
If you want to watch NFL games, including “Monday Night Football,” exclusively on your mobile device or tablet, NFL+ has you covered. Starting at $5 per month or $30 annually, an NFL+ subscription gives you mobile or tablet access to live local and primetime regular season and postseason games, live game audio for every game and more.
NFL+, $5 and up per month
ESPN is included in most cable packages and in plenty of deluxe streaming subscriptions with a live TV component, including DirectTV Stream, Fubo TV, Hulu + Live TV and Sling TV. If you have a cable package but aren’t sure if it includes ESPN, you can try signing in with your TV provider here.
DirecTV Stream isn’t cheap, but it offers all the networks you’ll need for the 2022 NFL season, including ESPN, ABC and ESPN Deportes. Subscribers to the DirecTV “Choice” tier and above get access to CBS, NBC, Fox 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 $10 off your first five months, meaning you’ll only have to pay $80 for the “Choice” tier with 2022 NFL Sunday Ticket Max for the duration of the NFL season.
DirecTV Stream (“Choice” tier), $80/mo. for first 5 months (new users only)
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. 
In addition to NFL football, FuboTV offers MLB, NBA, NHL, MLS and international soccer games.
FuboTV, starting at $70 per month
YouTube TV offers streaming coverage and pricing similar to Hulu+ Live TV’s, with the added bonus of a cable TV-esque channel grid. A basic subscription costs $65 a month. It’s currently being offered (to new users only) for $55 a month for the first three months.        
YouTube TV, $55 per month for first three months (new users only)
Sling TV is a live-TV streamer. For the NFL season, Sling’s “Orange & Blue” tier will get you almost all of the networks you need to watch every game — including ABC and ESPN — and at a relative bargain of $50 a month. Note: The “Orange & Blue” tier will not get you CBS games, or Amazon Prime Video’s “Thursday Night Football.” 
Still interested? Sling offers new users half off their first month of any package, including the “Orange & Blue” tier. 
Sling TV (“Orange & Blue” tier), $50 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

It’ll deliver any live-aired, free-TV NFL games in your area, plus all the other over-the-air content available in your area. Just connect the antenna to your set, and watch. It’s the 20th-century TV-viewing experience with 21st-century technology.
