NFL Week 7: How to watch, live stream the Ravens 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.

Ravens vs. Vikings on CBS All Access

The Ravens exist in a weird flux between good and awful. They're coming off of a difficult overtime loss to the Bears as they continue to seek any form of consistency within their season. Now 3-3, they have looked dominant in their wins and embarrassing in their losses. Joe Flacco doesn't look like himself, and the lack of a running back is shining through. The defense, so stout in Weeks 1 and 2, looks like a shell of itself in recent weeks. The Ravens will need to develop a streak to keep up with the equally sporadic Steelers.

The Vikings, meanwhile, are 4-2 in spite of one of the most confusing quarterback situations in the league. Teddy Bridgewater returned to practice, but he's still a while out from playing, and Sam Bradford could be playing this week or never again based on Mike Zimmer's evaluation process. However, the Vikings are winning games. The defense is one of the stingiest units in the league, and the offense has been doing just enough to win games. Now first in the NFC North, the Vikings are in the driver's seat. However, they have a long season ahead of them. This game could be a defensive standoff from beginning to end.
