NFL Week 15: How to watch, live stream the Bengals and Vikings on CBS All Access

Want to watch the NFL on CBS but don't have cable? CBS All Access has partnered with the NFL so you can stream local market games each Sunday 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.

Bengals and Vikings on CBS All Access

The Vikings are looking to bounce back from a tough loss to the Panthers that allowed the Eagles to get back into first place in the NFC. Although their eight-game win streak has been snapped, the Vikings showed a lot of grit against the Panthers, coming back from a deficit in the fourth quarter. An impressive drive that was set up by a massive Cam Newton run gave the Panthers the win, but the Vikings showed that they can play from behind.

At 5-8, the Bengals' season is all but over, but they're now looking to play spoiler against one of the best teams in the NFC. They've struggled in recent weeks, but spurts of scoring and strong defense have made them a dangerous team at times. At this point, it boils down to pride, and messing up the season for an NFC opponent would be a point of one. Andy Dalton and A.J. Green are looking to continue their impressive connection, and the Bengals defense will be trying to stymie a surprising Vikings offense.
