NFL Week 6: How to watch, live stream the Chargers and Raiders on CBS All Access
CBS All Access allows viewers to stream every NFL on CBS game in their local market
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.

The Chargers are coming off of their first win of the season. Granted, it came against the winless Giants, who are having the most demoralizing year in recent memory -- but sometimes you have to count your blessings. The 2-3 Raiders are still dealing with the injury to Derek Carr, and the Oakland . Struggles aside, at this point the health of Carr is of paramount importance. Should his injury get worse, the Raiders' high hopes for 2017 could come crashing down.
For the Chargers, drawing level with the Raiders in the AFC West would be a nice bonus, given their struggles since moving to Los Angeles. This game could turn out to be ugly, but after the game that Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa had in Week 5, the ability to put pressure on quarterbacks is apparent. Although the L.A. era hasn't started how the Chargers anticipated (or wanted), there is time to turn it around.
