NFL Playoffs 2018: How to watch, live stream the AFC Championship on CBSSports.com

Want to watch the NFL on CBS but don't have cable? Head to CBSSports.com or the CBS Sports App for OTT devices to watch the game for free. Additionally, CBS All Access has partnered with the NFL so you can stream local market games to your computer, tablet or OTT device.

It's a concerted effort to allow viewers to watch football wherever they're at, all without needing a cable or satellite subscription (or even a television) in your local market.

Obviously CBS All Access is about more than streaming football (although it doesn't have to be). For as low as $5.99 a month, the service allows subscribers to stream hundreds of hit shows. The real benefit, however, lies in being able to watch CBS live wherever you are. If you got roped into a wedding, you're stuck at a baby shower or you're just a good mom or dad and want to be at your kid's soccer game on Sunday, you can stream games directly to your tablet or laptop.

Jaguars and Patriots on CBS All Access

Against all odds, the Jacksonville Jaguars are here. But to be frank, they don't care about their odds either. After dismantling the Steelers in a 45-42 shootout, the Jaguars will look to take down the other titan in the AFC: The team that just beat the Titans. The Patriots are clearly the Goliath in this matchup, as Tom Brady is looking at a playoff field populated by Nick Foles, Case Keenum and Blake Bortles. Not that there's anything wrong with those quarterbacks, and Bortles looked stellar against the Steelers, but in a playoffs that was also boasting the likes of Ben Roethlisberger, Drew Brees and Matt Ryan, it's a bit surprising.

For the Patriots, this is nothing new. This will be their seventh consecutive AFC Championship Game appearance, and they've won three of the previous six. Getting to the Super Bowl might be starting to feel old hat for Pats' fans, but that just seems motivate them even more. It's been another stellar season for Brady, and in spite of a defense that struggled early on, the Patriots had another first-seeded season. They dismantled the Titans in the divisional round, and will look to do the same against another AFC South opponent (side note: who would have thought that the Patriots' road to the Super Bowl would involve two AFC South teams at the beginning of the season). It's a Cinderella season for the Jags, but the Patriots want to remind them that midnight can strike very quickly.
