Schedules - NFL 2020 Week 13
Where to stream NFL 2020 Week 13?
Best for everything: YouTube TV
Last year our streaming service pick for NFL fans was PlayStation Vue at $55 a month, but Sony shut down its service earlier this year. That leaves cord-cutters with two more expensive options.
At $65 per month each, a FuboTV Family plan and regular YouTube TV subscription check all the NFL channel boxes. Local channels CBS, NBC and Fox are included in many markets, as are ESPN and the NFL Network, so you can watch Monday night, Thursday night and Sunday night.
Want RedZone for following your fantasy team? That's available on either service as part of an add-on for an extra $11 per month. YouTube TV users can add the Sports Plus add-on by clicking on your profile and going to Settings, then the Membership tab. FuboTV users can go into My Profile and choose Manage Add-ons for its Sports Plus offeringm, CNET suggests.
Both YouTube TV and FuboTV's Family plan allow for three simultaneous streams, with YouTube offering unlimited cloud DVR and FuboTV offering 500 hours of storage. The two services are widely available too, with apps on iOS and Android, the web and on TVs through Roku, Chromecast, Android TV, Apple TV and Fire TV.
If we had to choose between the two, we'd recommend YouTube TV overall. While FuboTV does get points for broadcasting the Fox Thursday night games in 4K, YouTube TV has access to Turner channels like TNT, TBS and CNN, as well as PBS, and a superior DVR.
FuboTV's base plan, called Standard, is available for $60 per month and offers the same channels as the Family plan, so it may be an option for football fans who want to save a bit. But since it offers a paltry 30-hour DVR and just two simultaneous streams, we think the extra $5 is worth it.
Many other live TV streaming services carry those local channels and ESPN, but most lack NFL Network and RedZone. Hulu with Live TV and AT&T TV Now (formerly DirecTV Now) lack both. Hulu with Live TV, while currently cheaper than Fubo and YouTube TV, will rise to $65 per month starting on Dec. 18.
Sling TV's Orange and Blue plan for $45 a month gets you ESPN, and, in select major markets, Fox and/or NBC, but you'll still lack CBS. During Week 1 the streaming service reached a deal with the NFL to restore the NFL Network to its Sling Blue package and bring RedZone back to its $10 per month Sports Extra add-on.

Budget alternative for NFC fans in big cities: Sling Blue
Those looking to save some cash might want to check out Sling Blue for $30 a month. While it lacks ESPN, meaning you'll miss out on Monday Night Football, in select markets you'll be able to get Fox and NBC. The catch is that those markets are mainly in big cities, so if you live outside one of those areas, Sling Blue might not be for you.
The NFL and Dish agreement during Week 1 restored the NFL Network to the Sling Blue package while allowing sports fans to add RedZone through the company's $10 per month Sports Extra add-on.
Fox, of course, broadcasts most NFC and Thursday night games (with the others on NFL Network), while NBC has Sunday Night Football. CBS, which broadcasts the bulk of AFC games, isn't included on Sling at all. Of course, an antenna can fill those local channel gaps.
Budget alternatives: CBS All Access, Locast or an antenna
There are some apps that offer CBS' slate of Sunday AFC games live, including CBS All Access for $6 per month. Depending on where you live, however, your local CBS station (and those NFL games) might not be available. CBS offers livestreaming services in many markets.
Locast, meanwhile, is 100% free. It's currently offered in only 23 cities, however, and not all will have CBS, Fox and NBC.
And as we mentioned above, an over-the-air antenna connected to your TV provides another free option, no streaming required, as long as you have good reception.
Local and prime-time games will also be available to watch for free on your iOS or Android phone or tablet through the Yahoo Sports app. Some games, like next Thursday's Bengals and Browns matchup on NFL Network, will require you to be on a cellular connection and not on Wi-Fi due to "rights restrictions." Keep that in mind if you're on a limited data plan.
Thursday Night Football: NFL Network, Fox, Amazon Prime and Twitch
Thursday Night Football is probably the most complicated part of the NFL streaming schedule. Most games will be available on the NFL Network, Fox, Amazon Prime Video and Twitch.
A handful of Thursday games, however, are being shown exclusively on NFL Network, including the Week 15 and Week 16 Saturday doubleheaders.
The Christmas Day matchup (or "Thursday Night Football on a Friday") between the Vikings and Saints in Week 16, however, will be shown on all platforms: Fox, NFL Network, Amazon Prime Video and Twitch.
As mentioned above, if you want the NFL Network you're going to need FuboTV or YouTube TV or use the Yahoo Sports app.

A frequent fan-favorite method of following all the NFL action, RedZone is a way to catch every big play around the league. The cheapest road to RedZone is through YouTube TV or FuboTV and getting either of their respective $11 per month sports add-ons.
If you're fine with watching on your phone, the NFL offers RedZone as an in-app subscription for $35 for the season. While one of the cheapest options for getting RedZone, as The TV Answer Man points out, it is a bit tricky to find this option and you will only be able to watch through the NFL app on your iPhone or Android phone.
Once in the app, click on the profile icon in the upper-right corner. You'll see a section labeled "Subscriptions" with a line for NFL RedZone. Tap "Access" and you should be able to sign up.
With Dish making peace with the NFL, Sling TV Blue and Sports Extra is another option. This will run $40 per month ($30 for Sling Blue plus $10 for Sports Extra add-on), but can be streamed on a host of devices including iOS, Android, Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV and in web browsers.
Week 13 NFL player props, best bets, picks, predictions
With an ailing throwing shoulder, quarterback Kyler Murray leads the Arizona Cardinals against the Los Angeles Rams in an important NFC West showdown on Sunday. The dual-threat signal caller has been dealing with a right shoulder injury the last two games. Because of the injury Murray, has had just five total rushing attempts in the last two games, tying a career-low. On Sunday, he faces an Aaron Donald-led defense that ranks second in the NFL in total defense (296.7 yards per game allowed). Can you trust Murray with your Week 13 NFL player props?
William Hill Sportsbook has set the Over-Under for Murray's passing yards at 250.5. The Over-Under for Murray's passing attempts is 34.5 in the latest NFL prop bets. Those are just two of many NFL props for Week 13. Before making any NFL prop bets, you need to see what the SportsLine Projection Model has to say, according to CBSS Sports.
The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up more than $7,900 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception five-plus years ago. It is a sizzling 20-10 on top-rated NFL picks this season, returning almost $900. The model also enters Week 13 on an incredible 116-75 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.

The model ranked in the Top 10 on NFLPickWatch three of the past four years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 95 percent of CBS Sports office pool players three times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
With the Week 13 NFL schedule for Sunday quickly approaching, the model has attacked the NFL player props from William Hill and found five strong bets. You can only see them here.
After simulating every Week 13 game 10,000 times and examining the hundreds of player props from William Hill, the model loves Kansas City Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill to go over 74.5 receiving yards (-115) against the Denver Broncos.
The field-stretching burner averages 92.8 receiving yards per game. That ranks third in the NFL behind Davante Adams and DK Metcalf.
In addition, Hill has been on a roll. Last week, he torched the Buccaneers for seven catches for 203 yards and two touchdowns, all in the first quarter. He finished the game with 13 receptions for 269 yards and three scores. Over his last four games, he has 582 yards and eight touchdown catches.
