That means you'll be able to watch anywhere you go. It even has apps on VR platforms like Oculus Rift and Google Daydream.

Meanwhile, to score free access to NFL Game Pass, you'll want to head to its homepage (opens in new tab) and click the blue 'Complimentary Access' button. That guides you to sign in or create a free account so you can begin watching.

With NFL Game Pass, you can watch condensed games in just 45 minutes, check out live audio feeds while you're on the go, and access the NFL Originals archive featuring previous seasons of shows like Hard Knocks, A Football Life, and Mic'd Up.
