NFL Wild-Card Weekend: How to watch, live stream the Bills and Jaguars on CBS All Access
CBS All Access allows viewers to stream every NFL game on CBS 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.
How to get CBS All Access
Signing up is simple as well. You simply go to the CBS All Access landing page and pick the plan you want to purchase. Click here if you want to go straight to the free one-week trial, and input the proper information.
The Bills and the Jaguars put their seasons on the line, as two of the most surprising playoff teams in the NFL square off on Wild-Card Weekend. The Bills were able to sneak into the playoffs with a little help from the Bengals, snapping the sports world's longest postseason drought, while the Jaguars were dominant all season to win the AFC South. Now, the Bills are trying to do more in Josh McDermott's first season and win a playoff game.
The Jaguars will be looking to put on a show in front of their home fans, who have been starved for this game for some time. With the tarps off, the Jaguars will look to make a mark at EverBank to play the Steelers in the second round, whom they beat soundly earlier this season. However, no one is overlooking Tyrod Taylor and the Bills. The Bills, if you recall, were thought to be tanking earlier this year. And despite a misstep in putting Nathan Peterman in -- who went on to throw five interceptions in a half against the Chargers -- the Bills managed to survive.
Leonard Fournette and Chris Ivory have been a strong 1-2 punch for the Jags all season, while LeSean McCoy has carried the load for Buffalo. Shady, however, is a gametime decision against Jacksonville -- and without him the Bills' chances will take a huge hit. This game will likely be won on the ground, so the Bills may go to the Mike Tolbert well if McCoy's carries get impacted, but losing such a huge part of their offense just before the wild-card round would be a brutal loss.
