NFL Week 6: How to watch, live stream the Browns and Texans 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.

Browns vs. Texans on CBS All Access

The Browns are starting yet another quarterback on Sunday. Kevin Hogan, the team's 28th different starting QB since the franchise rebooted in Cleveland in 1999, will be getting the nod against the Houston Texans. That would have been terrifying in Week 1, but the Texans defense hasn't shown the teeth that most people expected throughout the season. With the season-ending injury to J.J. Watt, that isn't necessarily expected to change. 

For Houston, the offense has shockingly been able to pick up the defense's slack. Now 2-3, a game back of the Jaguars, the Texans will look to draw themselves back to .500 for the season. Deshaun Watson has proven himself to be a reliable quarterback, while Houston has been able to move the ball with relative ease over the past several games. Of course, those gains need to translate to wins, and the Houston defense is still a question mark, but the pieces are there. With some questioning if the Jaguars can keep up their pace, now is as good a time as any to move up in the AFC South and for Houston to at least give itself a chance to draw even with the leaders in the division.
