Sunday Night Football will play host to one of the most intriguing matchups of Week 2 when the New England Patriots travel to Seattle Seahawks. Who will come away victorious? Well, the Patriots made a winning start last week (Tom Brady who?) with a 21-11 win over the Dolphins. Cam Newton brought a new dimension to the Pats offense and rushed 75 yards on 15 carries, scoring two touchdowns. But that was Miami. Let's see how Super Cam fares against tougher opposition...
The Seahawks got off to a flyer in Week 1, beating the Atlanta Falcons 38-25. Quarterback Russell Wilson looked unstoppable and completed 31 of 35 passes for 322 yards. He also led the Hawks in rushing 29 yards on three carries. Seattle will have the home advantage but they could struggle to run the ball against the Pats.
Only one of these teams can go two for zero - but will it be the Pats or the Hawks Read on to find out the best ways to watch the New England Patriots vs the Seattle Seahawks live stream on your TV or mobile device, wherever you are...
Watch Patriots vs Seahawks anywhere in the world using a VPN
We'll look at the best ways to live stream the Patriots vs Seahawks for UK and USA-based NFL fans below, but even if you have subscribed to the relevant services, you won't be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you're accessing aren't aware of what you're doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we'd suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN or NordVPN.

Express also offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.View Deal
Once you've made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you'd like to use to watch the match. When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one that is based in the country whose content you'd like to access. Then navigate to the relevant video streaming app or website and you're in.

Watch Patriots vs Seahawks live in the USA
NFL fans in the United States are spoilt for choice when it comes to live, over-the-air football games. Problem is, NFL has spread the rights across a number of channels including NBC, Fox, CBS, ESPN, NFL Network, NFL Redzone. The NFL will also broadcast 11 games on Amazon Prime Video and Twitch, starting with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Chicago Bears on 8th October 2020.
The New England Patriots vs Seattle Seahawks is on NBC at 8.20pm ET, but those wanting to see the 2020 NFL season in its entirety will need to buy into all of these networks and streaming platforms.
A better option would be to cut the cord and go for an NFL Game Pass. At just $99 for a season, it's a bargain. But there's a catch: the Stateside version of the NFL Game Pass only allows you to watch replays of games. To watch the games live, you would need a VPN and the Pro version of the International NFL Game Pass (£143.99/ $180 per season).
The third option for US fans is to opt for a live TV streaming service. But which one is best?
FuboTV offers all available NFL channels, so it's the best option for US NFL fans. It costs $60 per month for its Family plan and includes NBC - broadcasting tonight's Chiefs vs Texans Kickoff Game - plus Fox, CBS, ESPN and the NFL Network. For an extra $11 per month, the Sports Plus add-on gets you NFL RedZone too. What's more, you can try it free for 7 days if you've not previously subscribed.
Sling TV's combined Orange and Blue package ($45 per month) provides access to NBC, Fox, ESPN and NFL Network. You don't get CBS or RedZone or NFL Network though. On the upside, SlingTV packages are discounted for the first month.
YouTubeTV ($65 per month) carries NBC, CBS, Fox and ESPN - nearly all of the networks showing NFL games live. It's only available in selected US cities, though. Punch in your zip code to see if its available to you.
Hulu with Live TV
Hulu with Live TV ($55 per month) grants access to NBC, Fox, CBS and ESPN. Just like YouTubeTV, the NFL Network and RedZone are not available.
