Falcons vs Jaguars Live Stream: How to Watch Preseason Game Online

The Atlanta Falcons remain men down on offense, as they prepare to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3 of NFL Preseason action on Saturday.

The game is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. ET. If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, here’s a rundown of all your live stream options, which vary depending on if the game is televised in your market or not:


If The Game is Televised in Your Market

First, check to see what local channel the game is on in your area–it will be either ABC, CBS, CW, Fox or NBC. Then, if you sign up for one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services, you’ll be able to watch a live stream of your desired channel.

For example, for fans in Atlanta or Jacksonville, where the game is The CW and Fox, respectively, either Hulu with Live TV or FuboTV are good options. If you’re in Savannah, where the game is on CBS, Amazon Prime is the way to go.

Here’s a rundown of all the streaming services, what they include, and how to sign up and watch (note that local channels are available live in select markets):

Hulu With Live TV

Local channels included: ABC, CBS, CW, Fox, NBC

In addition to its massive Netflix-like library of on-demand movies and TV shows, Hulu also offers a bundle of 50-plus live TV channels, which includes ABC, CBS, CW, Fox and NBC. You can sign up for “Hulu with Live TV” right here, and you can then watch a live stream of any of those channels on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Hulu app.

If you can’t watch the game live, “Hulu with Live TV” also comes with 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of DVR space and the ability to fast forward through commercials).

FuboTV

Local channels included: CBS, CW, Fox, NBC

A streaming service that is largely tailored towards sports fans, FuboTV includes CBS, CW, Fox and NBC. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial right here, and you can then watch a live stream of those channels on your computer via the FuboTV website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the FuboTV app.

If you can’t watch the game live, FuboTV also comes with 30 hours of Cloud DVR (with the ability to upgrade to 500 hours), as well as a “72-Hour Lookback” feature, which allows you to watch games and shows up to three days after they air even if you forgot to record them. The main FuboTV channel package also comes with NFL Network, which will air a replay of every preseason game.

Amazon Prime

Local channels included: CBS

If you have Amazon Prime or want to start a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime, you can watch all CBS content (both live and on-demand) via the CBS Amazon Channel, which also comes with a 7-day free trial.

Once you’re signed up for both Amazon Prime and the CBS channel, you can then watch a live stream of your local CBS channel on your computer via the Amazon website, or you can watch on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Amazon Video app.

Sling TV

Local channels included: Fox, NBC

Fox and NBC are both included in the “Sling Blue” channel package. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial, and you can then watch a live stream of either channel on your computer via the Sling website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Sling TV app.

If you can’t watch live, you can get 50 hours of cloud DVR storage as an additional add-on. “Sling Blue” also comes with the NFL Network, which will air a replay of every preseason game, so you can also watch that way if you miss it live.


If The Game is Not Televised in Your Market

You can watch every out-of-market preseason NFL game online via NFL Game Pass, which costs $99.99 for the season (or four installments of $29.99). Once signed up, you can watch games on your computer via the Game Pass website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the NFL app.


Preview

Head coach Dan Quinn announced Wednesday that wide receiver Julio Jones and running back Devonta Freeman will be held out for the remainder of the preseason in preparation for the Philadelphia Eagles opening night on September 6.

Jones, who underwent offseason foot surgery, has not played in either of Atlanta’s preseason games thus far. Freeman is nursing his knee, but seems to be preparing to play Week 1 against the Eagles.

Atlanta is being super conservative heading into Jacksonville, as safety Ricardo Allen (undisclosed) and linebacker Deion Jones (hamstring strain) were both ruled out vs. the Jaguars on Thursday.

Jacksonville has been the subject of multiple trade rumors this week.

First, it was reported by Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News the New York Jets had called in on the availability of defensive end Dante Fowler. In related news, the Jets also reportedly called in on Khalil Mack of the Oakland Raiders, so the organization is doing their due diligence when it comes to the league’s potential premiere pass rushers who are still young enough to lock up long-term.

The Jaguars were also reportedly connected to quarterback Teddy Bridgewater earlier in the week, but those trade rumors have seemed to die down.

The Jaguars offense will rely more on second-year running back Leonard Fournette this season. According to Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone, Fournette is expected to take on a bigger role on third down, which is code these day for “receiving option.”

“He seems to be doing a good job. It’s a little bit different on third down, schematically what we do. He’s just getting himself comfortable with that.”

The Jaguars enter the regular season with Marquise Lee and Dede Westbrook atop the depth chart at wide receiver, so incorporating Fournette, along with versatile pass-catching back Corey Grant, more into the offense makes sense.
