NEW YORK -- For the first time, every single NFL game will be streamed live this sea

NEW YORK -- For the first time, every single NFL game will be streamed live this season. But watching them all wont be easy.In general, its great that the NFL and its television networks are finally taking this step. Last year, most games televised on CBS werent streamed at all.Things are much simpler this season: All games will be streamed live, regardless of the network. But its still tricky to figure out where to find them online, and in many cases youll need pricey cable or satellite TV subscriptions to actually watch them.Heres a stream-by-stream guide to catching all the online pigskin you can.---NETWORK STREAMSIn general, Sunday afternoon games air on CBS and Fox. Sunday night games air on NBC. These games are free if you catch them on TV with an antenna, but to watch any of the networks online, youll need to pony up and get a cable or satellite TV subscription. Even then, youll be limited to hometown-team games plus a few other contests your local station broadcasts. If you want more games, youll need a DirecTV Sunday Ticket subscription.CBS made a few online games available for free last season and might do so again this year, but most of its games will also require a cable or satellite subscription. The $6-a-month CBS All Access online service isnt true to its name in this case; it wont get you the games.Meanwhile, ESPN owns Mondays, while the NFL Network cable channel televises all Thursday games. You can watch online if youre already paying for a TV package that carries these channels. But some of the Thursday games will end up on CBS or NBC as well -- but to stream those games for free, without a TV package, you need to go to Twitter instead (see below).The NFL Network is also getting a few weekend games , but not Thursday nights season opener or anything over the Thanksgiving holiday.To complicate things even more, most network streams are disabled on phones because of a deal the NFL has with Verizon. If youre a Verizon customer, you can watch for free on the NFL Mobile app or through Verizons go90 service. If not, grab a tablet or a PC, or watch on the big screen with a streaming-TV device like Roku or Apple TV.---TWITTERTwitter will stream 10 Thursday night games live without any device restrictions or sign-in requirements. These are the same games available on either CBS and NBC, not the ones exclusive to the NFL Network. Twitter is expected to provide more details on how to watch closer to the first game on Sept. 15.---PLAYSTATION VUESonys online TV service carries all five networks that show NFL games, but only in a handful of markets. Elsewhere, youll be lucky to find even a few of the broadcast networks on Vue. The service costs $35 or $45 a month with the NFL Network, or $30 or $40 without. The higher price applies to seven markets where Vue offers the best selection of broadcast networks.Regardless of the market, an additional $40 for the season gets you the NFL RedZone, a channel that switches from game to game to show key plays and scoring.You need a PlayStation or Amazon Fire TV device to sign up. Some games might be available on other devices once you sign up, but none are on phones unless its a game thats exclusive to the NFL Network.---SLING TVThis online TV service from satellite provider Dish offers Fox, NBC, ESPN and NFL Network for $40 a month. (You can cut the bill in half by opting for fewer channels.) But youll only find Fox and NBC in a handful of markets where the local stations are owned by the networks themselves. The NFL RedZone channel costs $5 a month more. CBS isnt on Sling at all.Games are available on a variety of PCs, tablets and streaming-TV devices. Games exclusive to the NFL Network will stream on phones, too.---NFL SUNDAY TICKETThis service from satellite provider DirecTV gives you Sunday afternoon games you cant get on your local TV station, so it typically excludes hometown teams.Its intended for DirecTV subscribers who pay an extra fee, although its sometimes possible to just buy the online package, which costs $200 for the season. To qualify, you need to show that you cant get the regular DirecTV service. For example, you might live in an apartment building or at a location where the satellite signal is obstructed. College students can also subscribe for half price.There are no restrictions on smartphones.---AFTER THE GAMEAll of the requirements and restrictions only apply to live games. Once a game ends, its available for streaming through the NFL Game Pass service, which costs $100 for the season. You can also listen to radio broadcasts live online.---COLLEGE FOOTBALLWhile all four major broadcast networks will televise some college games, the bulk will be on cable channels, including some for specific football conferences. Online policies vary, but a cable or satellite account is typically required.Sling TV and Vue offer ESPN, Fox Sports, NBC Sports Network, SEC Network and beIN Sports, some as part of higher tiers. Vue also has Big Ten and Longhorn networks plus Fox channels devoted to college sports, while Sling TV has Campus Insiders and Pac-12. Neither has the CBS Sports Network. Vue also has Comcast Sports; Sling TV will soon.Some conferences let fans subscribe separately to view games online. College Sports Live, which is owned by CBS, also offers games from more than 50 schools for $10 a month. But these subscriptions typically exclude any game shown on television. Patrick Willis Super Bowl Jersey .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. Richie James Super Bowl Jersey . The 18th player to shoot 60 on the tour, Jamieson settled for par on the final hole when his 15-foot birdie chip grazed the edge of the hole and stayed out. After opening with rounds of 66 and 73 to make the cut by a stroke, he had 11 birdies in the bogey-free round. . 1 position. The Mustangs (6-0), who beat Queens 50-31 last weekend, earned 17 first-place votes and 287 points in voting by the Football Reporters of Canada. Western was last ranked first in the country in October 2011. Trent Taylor Super Bowl Jersey . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season.

Cook, 31, became the youngest player to pass the 10,000-run mark in Englands nine-wicket victory over Sri Lanka at Durham.He still has some way to go before Tendulkars record of 15,921 runs comes into sight. Watch Cook become the first Englishman to reach 10,000 Test runs However, Botham said on Sky Sports: I think hes got a lot more runs to come yet, this is just a milestone for him. Hes 31, hes got lots of time to go. In five years, he could be chasing Sachin. Who knows?He is fit enough, strong enough, and we know how mentally tough he is. He could play for five or six more years easily. Its down to him. Its how long he wants to play for.Cook is the 12th player in history to pass 10,000 runs, and only the second opener. This is just a milestone for him. Hes 31, hes got lots of time to go. In five years, he could be chasing Sachin. Who knows? Ian Botham He is also the first Englishman to reach the mark, and Botham thinks he has been helped by his interests away from cricket.He has a young family, his farming, he enjoys country pursuits, he is quite happy to go off on his own. I think that is important, Botham said. It gives you time away from the game and you need that, you cannot do cricket 24/7.Botham also believes Cook has benefited from not playing any one-day cricket in the last few years. Cook says it was a very special moment as he reached the 10,000-run milestone His last one-day international was against Sri Lanka in December 2014, and Botham said: His best Test cricket has been when he has not been playing one-day cricket.ddddddddddddHe is so disciplined and it means he doesnt get caught between the two games. The best thing that happened to him was getting away from the one-day game. After he became the first English batsman to reach 10,000 runs, we take a look at how captain Alastair Cook reached this remarkable landmark.
