NFL Week 5: How to watch, live stream the Seahawks and Rams 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.

Seahawks and Rams on CBS All Access

The Los Angeles Rams are facing a huge prove-it game on Sunday, as they'll be playing against the Seattle Seahawks. The fearsome front seven of the Rams will be looking to feast on Seattle's utterly inept offensive line, and this game has the potential to be like -- well -- every NFC West match-up ever. It seems like every NFC West game ends up with 30 field goals, but Seahawks and Rams games tend to be especially brutal. Perhaps the departure of Jeff Fisher can sway the pendulum one way or the other, as Fisher always seemed to have Seattle's number.

The Seahawks are trying to recover from a rough 2-2 start. They've lost to the Packers and the Titans, and despite basically playing only one half of football against the Colts they crushed Indianapolis to the tune of 46-18. Now travelling to Los Angeles, the Seahawks will try to prove that they belong atop the NFC West. Obviously no mean feat against a team that is playing like the Rams. The surprising Jared Goff and not as surprising pursuit from Wade Phillips' defense has people thinking the Rams may be for real. They'll have a chance to prove as much on a nearly national stage.
