NFL blackouts: International Game Pass vs. U.S. Game Pass

What’s the difference between watching NFL Game Pass in Germany, Australia, Canada, or the U.S.? NFL Game Pass is available both inside and outside the States. However, there are key differences every fan needs to know:

The U.S. NFL Game Pass does not offer live streaming of regular-season or postseason games. It provides streams of out-of-market preseason games, on-demand replays of every regular-season game, and the NFL Films archive. There are no blackouts of regular-season games (because none are shown live at all). A seven-day free trial is available.

In most other markets, such as Mexico 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.

Is NFL Game Pass UK the same as the 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 Asia Pacific locations tend to offer the lowest prices. 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 NFL international Game Pass on?

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

What’s the difference between NFL Game Pass and NFL Sunday Ticket?

NFL Game Pass is the NFL’s streaming service. It is different from NFL Sunday Ticket, which is exclusive to AT&T TV Now.

NFL Game Pass comes in two flavors. The domestic Game Pass only shows out-of-market preseason games, regular-season game replays, and the full range of NFL Films. The international Game Pass shows every live regular season and playoff game, including the Super Bowl. Read more about the nuances of NFL Game Pass.

NFL Sunday Ticket is only available to U.S. with a valid service address. Sunday Ticket shows out-of-market games only and excludes select international games. In particular, games broadcast by your local Fox or CBS affiliate will not be available for streaming.

NFL Sunday Ticket starts at 73.50 USD/month for four months. If you live in the U.S. and don’t mind missing a portion of the games, NFL Sunday Ticket might be worth considering. The international version of NFL Game Pass costs at least 125 USD/season but gives you access to every game and a wide range of extras.

Top 2020 Week 8 NFL Games

Thursday Night FootballNew York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles [Oct. 29, 8:20 p.m. ET]

Although neither of these teams are Super Bowl contenders, they should at least be able to move the ball and keep this game entertaining. Both clubs are in the top six in the NFL in passing yardage and Robby Anderson and Calvin Ridley rank second and third in the league in receiving yards. The Panthers have a good chance to come out on top thanks to a superior defense, but this could be a close one.

Late Game of the WeekNew Orleans Saints at Chicago Bears [Oct. 25, 4:25 p.m. ET]

While the Bears saw some shine come off their strong start with a loss to the Rams on Monday, this is still a compelling matchup between teams with a combined 9-4 record. If Chicago hopes to smother the Saints with their defense they’re going to have to find a way to contain Alvin Kamara, who is averaging a staggering 137.4 yards from scrimmage per game so far this year.

Sunday Night FootballDallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles [Nov. 1, 8:20 p.m. ET]

For some reason, NFL schedule makers are under the impression that national audiences are dying for NFC East football even though every team in that division has been abysmal. The Cowboys and the Eagles have won a combined total of four games so far. The Eagles have an edge considering the Cowboys are down to third quarterback Ben DiNucci, but they’re also bad enough to beat themselves.

Monday Night FootballTampa Bay Buccaneers at New York Giants [Nov. 2, 8:15 p.m. ET]

Thanks to an elite defense and a Tom Brady-led offense, the Buccaneers are starting to look like title contenders. However, that perception will fall to pieces if they’re unable to get past a pathetic Giants team that has scored fewer points than anyone in the NFC. This is a huge mismatch on paper, and looks like more of a game for fantasy football enthusiasts and bettors than one you’d tune into for the competition alone.

2020-21 NFL award races

MVP:  At this stage of the season, Russell Wilson has to be the frontrunner considering he leads the league in passing touchdowns and passer rating — even though his Seattle Seahawks are no longer undefeated. Aaron Rodgers is breathing right down his neck after a bounce-back performance in Week 7, though. It’s also impossible to sleep on Patrick Mahomes, who remains the most talented player in the sport, but Wilson and Rodgers are the clear top two right now.

Preseason prediction: Patrick Mahomes (QB, Kansas City Chiefs)

Offensive Player of the Year: : You could argue for one of the quarterbacks here, but the best case might belong to Alvin Kamara. Right now the New Orleans Saints running back is doing it all, leading the league in both scrimmage yards and touchdowns, despite the fact the Saints have already had their bye. As Drew Brees has declined, Kamara has been there to pick up the slack — and put up eye-popping numbers.

Preseason prediction: Christian McCaffrey (RB, Carolina Panthers)

Defensive Player of the Year: Another massive game from Myles Garrett has put him back in the lead for this award. The Cleveland Browns pass rusher is in the midst of a career year, leading the league in sacks (9) and forced fumbles (4). He’s had at least one sack in every game since Week 1.

Preseason prediction: Aaron Donald (DT, Los Angeles Rams)

Offensive Rookie of the Year:  As Joe Burrow has slipped a little bit in recent weeks, the door for this award has cracked open. Clyde Edwards-Helaire looks like the first obvious candidate to take advantage, but since the Chiefs signed Le’Veon Bell he might be sharing the workload. Justin Herbert of the Los Angeles Chargers has been outstanding, and this award tends to go to a quarterback if there’s a worthy contender.

Preseason prediction: Joe Burrow (QB, Cincinnati Bengals)

Defensive Rookie of the Year: Although Baltimore Ravens linebacker Patrick Queen was on bye in Week 7, he’s probably made the most balanced defensive contribution of any rookie. Along with his 44 tackles, he’s also got two sacks, two forced fumbles, and a pair of fumble recoveries — including one he returned 53 yards for a touchdown in Week 5.

Preseason prediction: Isaiah Simmons (LB, Arizona Cardinals)

Comeback Player of the Year: The prohibitive favorite for this one was Cam Newton, but he’s on a firm downward trajectory in recent weeks. Our preseason pick of Ben Roethlisberger is looking pretty good right now as the 38-year-old is putting up rock-solid passing numbers across the board, contributing to the Pittsburgh Steelers’ undefeated run.

Preseason prediction: Ben Roethlisberger (QB, Pittsburgh Steelers)

Coach of the Year:  This favorite for this award fluctuates wildly week-to-week, but right now Mike Vrabel of the Titans is in a good spot despite losing to the Steelers in Week 7. His team has been outstanding even though they’ve endured a coronavirus outbreak, limiting their practice time and altering their schedule. In the midst of the chaos, this club is functioning like a well-oiled machine, and their head coach deserves credit for that.

Preseason prediction: Kliff Kingsbury (Arizona Cardinals)

Who’s making Super Bowl LV?

Past the quarter pole of the season the true contenders are beginning to emerge. The Kansas City Chiefs look primed to defend their crown thanks to an offense that somehow got even better with the added dimension brought by rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire. The Chiefs defense only needs to be respectable for this team to roll over its opponents, and even if it comes down to a shootout they are well equipped to win those games. Despite an anomalous loss to the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 5, the Chiefs are still the favorites.

In the second tier of contenders are teams like the Green Bay Packers, Pittsburgh Steelers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Seattle Seahawks. Each of these clubs is helmed by a veteran quarterback who’s won at least one Super Bowl before. What’s more, all four offenses look exceedingly strong out of the gate. The Steelers are especially dangerous because they have an elite defense to match, but they need Ben Roethlisberger to stay healthy to compete, and that’s been a tall order in recent years. The Baltimore Ravens also aren’t going anywhere, but their decisive Week 3 loss to the Chiefs raises questions about their ability to topple the reigning champs.

There are also a few dark horses in the field, like the Buffalo Bills, who’ve seen their previously-erratic quarterback Josh Allen take the next step, and the Titans, who were the story of last year’s playoffs. Ryan Tannehill is making the case that he’s an elite quarterback after all his mediocre years in Miami, and Derrick Henry is downright special.
