NFL games streaming this month (November 2019)
Thanks to the advent of Thursday Night Football, there are four NFL games streaming this month, mostly on Amazon Prime Video.
Amazon will host the first three free streaming games to its massive Prime membership audience. Fans of Thanksgiving football can also catch the Buffalo Bills at Dallas Cowboys with a CBS All Access subscription. Or this might be the perfect time to test out a free, one-month trial.
The initial three November matchups are divisional contests. Those become all the more important at this juncture of the year as division record is a key tiebreaker for the playoffs.
Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns (Amazon Prime Video – Nov. 14, 8:20 p.m. ET)
No team has been more disappointing in the NFL this year than the Browns. Two historically productive, young receivers in Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry. One of the best backs in the league in Nick Chubb. A formidable defensive line led by Myles Garrett.
As if Cleveland hasn’t endured enough woes: quarterback Baker Mayfield has imploded into a sophomore slump. Mayfield has seven touchdown throws to 12 interceptions. He’s forcing the ball, and stubbornly refuses to change his cocky attitude for the betterment of the team.
Oh, and new head coach Freddie Kitchens is floundering and drowning on game days.
The Browns (2-6) probably can afford to lose just one more game, if that, to secure a playoff berth. Even at home and with a massive talent advantage, it won’t be easy for Cleveland to get the “W” here.
Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans (Amazon Prime Video – Nov. 21, 8:20 p.m. ET)
This would’ve been the best game of the bunch if Colts starting quarterback Jacoby Brissett’s health wasn’t in question. He’s week-to-week with a sprained MCL suffered in Week 9.
In Brissett’s place is journeyman backup Brian Hoyer. While he did throw for three touchdowns and positioned Indy for a game-winning field goal attempt that went awry, Hoyer also threw a 96-yard pick-six near halftime of last week’s 26-24 loss to the Steelers.
These Colts have overcome the odds to go 5-3 to this point after the sudden retirement of Andrew Luck. They should beat Miami in Week 10, since the Dolphins are essentially trying to lose. However, Week 12 could be the start of Indianapolis’ decline.
Buffalo Bills at Dallas Cowboys (CBS All Access – Nov. 28, 4:30 p.m. ET)
The NFL Thanksgiving tradition puts the brakes on Amazon’s rights to Thursday games for just this one week.
Buffalo (6-2) has been one of the surprises of the year. The team boasts an elite defense that ranks third in total yards allowed and points allowed per game. It’s probably the most optimistic the fanbase has been in over two decades.
That’s not to say the Cowboys (5-3) don’t have difficulties, too. They have among the most difficult schedules in the NFL from Weeks 10 through 16. America’s Team is home against Minnesota before road trips to Detroit and New England. All those opponents figure to take a physical toll on Dallas, and could drop its record to at least 6-5 before Thanksgiving.
Don’t expect a lot of offensive fireworks in this one. Don’t be surprised, though, if the Cowboys pull it out thanks to the running of elite back Ezekiel Elliott.
