Watch out-of-market NFL games with NFL Game Pass International

Price: From 75 USD for the entire season

If you’re looking to watch out-of-market NFL games, or don’t have a U.S. cable subscription, NFL Game Pass International is your best option, as it offers live streams of every NFL game without blackouts.

You can access NFL Game Pass worldwide (outside the U.S. and Canada), but some games are blacked out in parts of Europe as well. Only users who sign up for Game Pass from select locations will have live-streaming access to every game, everywhere. Prices vary by region.

To watch NFL Game Pass International with a VPN:

  1. Get ExpressVPN.
  2. Connect to a non-U.S. location where all games are available. For assistance, contact ExpressVPN Support via live chat.
  3. Go to NFL Game Pass and sign up.
  4. Sit back and enjoy!

NFL International Game Pass vs. NFL+

Until this year, there were two versions of NFL Game Pass: Game Pass International, and U.S. Game Pass. In 2022, the NFL discontinued U.S. Game Pass and introduced the NFL+ app. What’s the difference between watching NFL Game Pass International and NFL+ in the U.S.?


Price: 5-10 USD/month, or 40-80 USD/year

New in 2022, the NFL+ app offers NFL game live streams for a single team (within your home market) along with national primetime games. However NFL+ is only available for live streams on mobile and tablet devices, and does not stream as reliably as Game Pass. It provides streams of out-of-market preseason games, live game audio (for all games, with all feeds), and the NFL Films archive, but if you want to stream NFL games on your TV without blackouts, Game Pass International is the way to go.

NFL Game Pass International

Price: From 78 USD/year

In most other markets, such as Mexico, Brazil, and most EU countries, the international NFL Game Pass offers all 256 regular-season games plus the NFL Playoffs and Super Bowl. Users trying to watch the NFL in the UK or Ireland are subject to blackouts on some games, and for viewers who want to stream the NFL in Canada, Game Pass is available exclusively through DAZN.

Most international Game Pass subscribers get access to NFL RedZone, the NFL Network, and all NFL Films programming. There’s a seven-day free trial available.

NFL streaming options for select games

There are a few options that won’t give you access to all the games, but could fit your needs.

Watch the NFL for free on 7plus

Price: FREE

Australia’s Seven network airs two free games per week, with NFL live streams on its streaming platform 7plus, and will also air every playoff game. During the week you can also find replays, highlights, on-demand shows, and other bonus content on its 7mate channel.

The Week 9 slate on 7plus includes the Miami Dolphins visiting the Chicago Bears at 5 a.m. AEDT, along with the Seattle Seahawks vying for first place in the NFC West against the languishing Arizona Cardinals in the late game at 8:05 a.m. AEDT.

Stream Thursday Night Football on Prime Video

Price: 15 USD/month

After previously airing on Fox and the NFL Network from 2018-21, Thursday Night Football officially moves to Amazon Prime Video for the 2022 season. This marks the first time NFL games have been locked behind a subscription service. However, fans in local markets will be able to watch the games without a Prime subscription. For example, a Chiefs fan living in Kansas City can watch the Chiefs-Chargers showdown through a local affiliate (depending on the market) in Week 2. All TNF games will air at 8:20 p.m. ET each week.

Note that Thursday night games in Week 1 (Buffalo Bills-Los Angeles Rams) and Week 12 (New England Patriots-Minnesota Vikings, playing on Thanksgiving) will air on NBC.

Check out the full Thursday Night Football schedule here.

Stream on Paramount+

Price: 5 USD/month

Channels: CBS

If you follow an AFC team, Paramount+ streams games that are broadcast on CBS, though you’ll have to ensure your location matches the correction market. If you don’t feel like committing to Paramount+ or only want to watch a specific game, there’s a seven-day free trial.

More Game Pass Information

If you’re looking for more information before committing to a Game Pass subscription, here are some answers to some of the questions you may have:

Is NFL Game Pass UK the same as International Game Pass?

In a word, no. Regional broadcasting rights in the UK and the Republic of Ireland mean certain games are subject to blackout restrictions.

This applies even if a subscriber from the UK or Ireland is in another part of the EU. Existing EU Portability Regulations require UK and Ireland blackout restrictions to apply no matter where in the EU the subscriber is.

Can I watch NFL Game Pass in Europe?

EU viewers who subscribe to NFL Game Pass from most locations other than the UK or Ireland should have access to all games live, although limited blackouts may apply if such users try to watch from the UK or Ireland.

Where is the cheapest location to get NFL International Game Pass?

NFL international Game Pass prices vary from region to region, but South American locations tend to offer the lowest prices, which can get as low as 75 USD for the season. For information about specific countries, contact ExpressVPN Support.

Subscription refunds are valid up to seven days from the purchase date. Free trial refunds are valid up to three days after the trial ends. More details can be found on the NFL Digital Care site.

Which devices can I watch International NFL Game Pass on?

NFL Game Pass works on the following devices. To set up ExpressVPN on your device, follow the corresponding link below:

NFL Games of the Week

From potential playoff previews to matchups showcasing some of football’s best young talents, we have you covered with the best NFL games to stream this week. You can stream every game, all season long on NFL Game Pass but we have also noted alternative streaming options.

New England Patriots vs. Buffalo Bills – Thursday, December 1, 8:15 p.m. ET / 1:15 a.m. GMT: How the (folding) tables have turned in the AFC East. The Bills enter Week 13 tied for first place in the East, while the Patriots sit in last following a thrilling Thanksgiving Day loss to the Vikings. Granted, the Pats are 6-5 and have a history of excelling in December, so let’s not write them off just yet. Note that Thursday’s game will exclusively air on Amazon Prime Video in the U.S. outside the Buffalo and Boston markets.

Minnesota Vikings vs. New York Jets – Sunday, December 4, 1 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. GMT: After devastating (for very different reasons) Week 11 losses, both the Vikings and Jets bounced back with victories in Week 12. Sunday pits arguably the NFL’s two biggest positive surprises against one another in Minneapolis. Can Mike White help move the Jets to 3-0 against NFC North teams? Watch for free on Australia’s 7plus.

Houston Texans vs. Cleveland Browns – Sunday, December 4, 1 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. GMT: Normally, there’d be no reason to promote a BrownsTexans game in December, especially given their dismal records. However, the Browns are still mathematically alive in the playoff race, and veteran quarterback Deshaun Watson is expected to make his 2022 debut this week. Plenty of eyes will be on this game, and the rest of the Browns’ season, for reasons beyond Watson’s counting stats. The game will air on CBS. 

Las Vegas Raiders vs. Los Angeles Chargers – Sunday, December 4, 4:25 p.m. ET / 9:25 p.m. GMT: The last time these teams met in Las Vegas, the Raiders opted to go for the win rather than a tie in the 2021 regular-season finale. That bold move propelled the Silver and Black to the postseason and sent Justin Herbert and his Chargers teammates home for the year. Let’s see if the Bolts exact some revenge and all but officially end the Raiders’ playoff hopes. Tune in for free on Australia’s 7plus.

Dallas Cowboys vs. Indianapolis Colts – Sunday, December 4, 8:20 p.m. ET / 1:20 a.m. GMT: How do you know the NFL doesn’t care about you, the fan? Rather than flex a more intriguing game, say the Jets-Vikings showdown, into the Sunday night slot, the league stuck with the Colts and Cowboys. If you needed another reason to root against America’s Team in the postseason, here you go! Stream this primetime battle on NBC and Peacock.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New Orleans Saints – Monday, December 5, 8:15 p.m. ET / 1:15 a.m. GMT: The Saints are fresh off being shut out for the first time since 2002, and the Buccaneers fell back to Earth in a crushing OT road loss in Cleveland last week. Their reward? A nationally-televised Monday Night Football game featuring two teams with losing records. ESPN will have full coverage; note that there will not be a Manningcast this week.

2022 NFL storylines

From veteran quarterbacks in new places to potential superstar rookies, there are no shortage of intriguing storylines this season. Here’s what we’re keeping an eye on:

Enter the Jets? Although the New York Jets own the NFL’s longest postseason drought, Gang Green appears ready to change its fortunes after a decade-plus of misery. New York upgraded its offense during the offseason, signing guard Laken Tomlinson and drafting Ohio State receiver Garrett Wilson. Rookie defensive lineman Jermaine Johnson II and cornerback Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner each arrived with fanfare. Don’t look now, but the Jets might not be a laughingstock much longer.

Free agent watch: Training camp began with numerous high-profile free agents still waiting to ink a new contract. Keep an eye on ex-Los Angeles Rams receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who is recovering from a torn ACL sustained in February’s Super Bowl victory. The Jets signed former Seattle Seahawks offensive tackle Duane Brown following 2020 first-round pick Mekhi Becton‘s season-ending injury. Cam Newton, who spent last season with the Carolina Panthers, is arguably the top remaining free-agent quarterback.

Old faces, new places: The quarterback carousel proved extremely busy throughout the NFL offseason. Former Houston Texans star Deshaun Watson is now on the Cleveland Browns, who subsequently traded former No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield to the Carolina Panthers in July. Seattle Seahawks legend Russell Wilson will continue his career with the Denver Broncos. After missing the playoffs in 2021, the Indianapolis Colts and Washington Commanders will try to get the most out of Matt Ryan and Carson Wentz, respectively. 

Trey Lance’s time cut short: The San Francisco 49ers appeared ready to move on from veteran quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who came minutes shy of winning the Super Bowl in February 2020. However, Jimmy G instead stuck around and regained his starting position in Week 2 following Trey Lance’s season-ending ankle injury.

Young Jaguars: After the Urban Meyer experiment failed disastrously, the Jaguars hired former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson to accelerate the newest rebuild. The Super Bowl LII-winning coach at least has a talented young core in young quarterback Trevor Lawrence, pass-rusher Josh Allen, and defensive lineman Travon Walker, who went first overall in April’s NFL Draft.

2022 NFL award watch

The 2022 NFL season is moving quickly, and it’ll be awards season before we know it. The NFL officially has five major awards related to on-field play: Most Valuable Player, Offensive and Defensive Player of the Year, Offensive and Defensive Rookie of the Year, Comeback Player of the Year, and Coach of the Year. A sixth award, the Walter Payton Man of the Year, recognizes a player’s impact on his community but is not solely tied to performance.

In November 2022, the NFL and AP announced a significant change to the MVP voting process. Rather than only picking one player, voters are allowed to rank five players. At this point in the season, here are who we believe will win each of the NFL’s five major performance-related awards:

NFL MVP: Patrick Mahomes, QB, Kansas City Chiefs

Patrick Mahomes won the MVP Award in 2018, and he’s on pace to join an exclusive club as a multi-time recipient. In hindsight, we should have figured the Texas Tech product was ready for a massive 2022 season when he fired five touchdown passes in a season-opening victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Mahomes is the NFL’s top quarterback, and he’s thrived despite the loss of All-Pro receiver Tyreek Hill, who is enjoying his own MVP-caliber season in Miami.

Other candidates: Derrick Henry, RB, Tennessee Titans; Josh Allen, QB, Buffalo Bills; Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Miami Dolphins; Tyreek Hill, WR, Miami Dolphins

Offensive Player of the Year: Tyreek Hill, WR, Miami Dolphins

Hill earned All-Pro honors in 2020 when he recorded 87 catches, 1,276 yards, and 15 touchdowns for the Chiefs. Although he only reached the end zone four times in his first 10 games with the Dolphins, Hill recorded a league-high 81 catches and 1,148 yards. The six-time Pro Bowler is on pace to become the first receiver in NFL history with 2,000 receiving yards in a single season. That’ll do for the Dolphins, who hope to win their first playoff game since 2000.

Other candidates: Derrick Henry, RB, Tennessee Titans; Jalen Hurts, QB, Philadelphia Eagles; Justin Jefferson, WR, Minnesota Vikings; Lamar Jackson, QB, Baltimore Ravens

Defensive Player of the Year: Micah Parsons, LB, Dallas Cowboys

Parsons finished second in Defensive Player of the Year voting last year, and he’s in the driver’s seat to earn the award this year. Not only is the second-year linebacker still getting to the quarterback, but he’s also a threat to knock the ball out. The Cowboys have a star in Parsons, and historians will understandably wonder how he fell to the 12th overall pick in the 2021 draft. 

Other candidates: Chris Jones, DT, Kansas City Chiefs; Matthew Judon, EDGE, New England Patriots; Nick Bosa, EDGE, San Francisco 49ers; Quinnen Williams, DT, New York Jets

Offensive Rookie of the Year: Kenneth Walker III, RB, Seattle Seahawks

Only four running backs have won Offensive Rookie of the Year since 2008, but Walker is well on pace to become the fifth. After carving through Big 10 defenses at Michigan State last year, the 5-foot-10, 210-pound Walker—drafted 41st overall in April—didn’t need long to prove he could do the same in the NFL. Keep an eye on what he does down the stretch as Seattle fights for an unexpected NFC West division crown.

Other candidates: Chris Olave, WR, New Orleans Saints; Dameon Pierce, RB, Houston Texans; Garrett Wilson, WR, New York Jets; Isiah Pacheco, RB, Kansas City Chiefs

Defensive Rookie of the Year: Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner, CB, New York Jets

Although Gardner never allowed a touchdown in college, some draft analysts were skeptical because he achieved the feat at Cincinnati, a mid-major, as opposed to in the SEC or Big 12. Gardner, the fourth overall pick in April, quickly silenced the doubters en route to becoming one of the league’s top young shutdown corners. The 2021 All-American selection has positioned himself to win Defensive Rookie of the Year and land on the All-Pro team.

Other candidates: Aidan Hutchinson, DE, Detroit Lions; Jack Jones, CB, New England Patriots; Tariq Woolen, CB, Seattle Seahawks

Comeback Player of the Year: Geno Smith, QB, Seattle Seahawks

Forget Comeback Player of the Year. This is the comeback of the decade. When Smith replaced then-Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson midway through an October 2021 loss to the Rams, some fans may have been shocked the West Virginia product was still in the league. Seattle traded Wilson to the Denver Broncos in March and named Smith, who turned 32 in October, the starter. Never mind that Smith hadn’t been a full-time starter since 2014 and threw 196 total passes from 2015 through 2021. Not only has Smith outplayed Wilson, but he’s been one of the league’s most efficient quarterbacks and might find himself starting a playoff game in January. Not even Hollywood could come up with such a plot!

Other candidates: Brian Robinson, RB, Washington Commanders (shot during an attempted carjacking in August but returned in October and made his NFL debut only weeks later); Saquon Barkley, RB, New York Giants (missed most of 2020 season with torn ACL and struggled in 2021); Travis Etienne Jr., RB, Jacksonville Jaguars (missed 2021 season with torn ACL)

Coach of the Year: Mike McDaniel, Miami Dolphins

McDaniel has brought something the Dolphins desperately missed during the Brian Flores era: positivity. The first-year head coach rallied around the embattled Tagovailoa at quarterback and built other players up rather than try the tired “Do Your Job” shtick that has worked for Bill Belichick—and only Belichick—in New England over the last two decades. McDaniel’s enthusiasm is contagious, and the Dolphins look like a completely different organization. 

Other candidates: Brian Daboll, New York Giants; Kevin O’Connell, Minnesota Vikings; Mike Vrabel, Tennessee Titans; Robert Saleh, New York Jets

Other professional football leagues

As football fans waited for the 2022 NFL season to begin, they still had plenty of ways to get their gridiron fix. Here’s our guide on which professional football leagues you need to try watching this summer.

Canadian Football League

What to know: Until the NFL returns, the CFL is your best bet for legitimate professional football. The 2022 Canadian campaign began in June and will run through November 20, when two teams will battle it out for the 109th Grey Cup. Dallas Cowboys fans will recognize BC Lions receiver Lucky Whitehead, who has carved out a solid career up North.

Our favorite way to watch with a VPN: All CFL games air in the U.S. on ESPN networks, though some are exclusive to ESPN+, which costs 10 USD/month and comes with a seven-day free trial. ESPN+ is also available in a bundle with Disney+ and Hulu’s on-demand service for 14 USD/month.

Fan Controlled Football

What to know: Have you ever watched an NFL game and believed you’d call better plays? The Fan Controlled Football league offers such an opportunity. Fans vote on all offensive plays in real time and even decide the outcomes of instant-replay reviews. Ex-Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner, plays for the FCF Zappers.

Our favorite way to watch with a VPN: All FCF games air on the league’s official Twitch channel.
