Giants vs. Eagles Livestream: How to watch NFL Week 18 online today

The Eagles have lost two straight games and are in danger of being passed by the Cowboys for the division crown. But they can still win the division and a first-round bye as the top team in the conference with a win at home against the Giants on Sunday (or a Cowboys loss against the Commanders). For the Giants, they secured a Wild Card spot last week and are locked in as the NFC’s sixth seed. Kickoff in Philadelphia is set 4:25 PM ET (1:25 PM PT) on CBS.

The game will be televised in the Philadelphia and New York/New Jersey areas (per 506 Sports) on live TV broadcast services, but there may be cases where you get blocked due to an internet location error or just want an extra layer of privacy for streaming. It’s an option that doesn’t require you to subscribe to something like NFL Sunday Ticket or NFL Plusor search the internet for an outlined site: a virtual private network, or VPN.

Here’s how to watch the game from anywhere in the US with a VPN.

How to watch Giants vs. Eagles game online from anywhere using a VPN

If you are unable to watch the game locally due to incorrectly applied blackout restrictions, you may need a different way to watch the game, which is where using a VPN can come in handy. A VPN is also the best way to stop your ISP from throttling your speed on game day by encrypting your traffic, plus it’s a great idea when you’re traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network, and you’ll add an extra layer of privacy to your devices and logins.

With a VPN, you can virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to access the game. So if your ISP or mobile operator has stuck you with an IP address that falsely shows your location in a blackout zone, a VPN can correct that problem by giving you an IP address in your correct, non-blackout area . Most VPNs, like ours Editors’ Choice, ExpressVPNmakes it very easy to do this.

Using a VPN to watch or stream sports is legal in any country where VPNs are legal, including the US and Canada, as long as you have a legitimate subscription to the service you’re streaming. You should make sure your VPN is properly configured to prevent leaks: Even where VPNs are legal, the streaming service can terminate the account of anyone it deems to be circumventing properly applied blackout restrictions.

Live stream the Giants vs. Eagles game in the USA

This week’s Giants-Eagles game is on CBS, so in addition to a VPN, you’ll need one live TV streaming service which has a local CBS affiliate broadcasting the game. The cheapest such service is Paramount Plus. You must subscribe to Paramount Plus’ Essential or Premium plans to view the game (or an older “limited commercials” plan).

Paramount Plus has two main options: Essential for $5 per month ($50 per year if you pay annually) and Premium for $10 per month ($100 per year if you pay annually). Both offer live NFL games, though the cheaper Essential option lacks live CBS feeds, ad-free content for on-demand streaming or the ability to download shows to watch offline later.

Since both options work for the NFL games, if all you want is football, the cheaper Essential option would be the way to go.

Many others live TV streaming services also has local CBS stations, namely YouTube TV, Hulu Plus Live TV, DirecTV Stream and FuboTV. They all cost more than Paramount Plus, but they also have more channels, including football-specific channels like Fox, ESPN, NFL Network and/or RedZone. Check out ours live tv streaming channel guide for details.

Quick tips for streaming Giants vs. Eagles games using a VPN

  • With four variables at play – your ISP, browser, video streaming provider and VPN – your experience and success can vary.
  • We tested the game successfully using an ExpressVPN server in New York, so that’s one place you can choose to watch the game.
  • If you don’t see your desired location as the default option for ExpressVPN, try using the “search by city or country” option.
  • If you’re having trouble getting the game after turning on the VPN and setting it to the correct viewing area, there are two things you can try for a quick fix. First, log into your streaming service subscription account and make sure the address registered for the account is an address in the correct viewing area. If not, you may need to change the physical address registered to your account. Second, some smart TVs—like Roku—don’t have VPN apps you can install directly on the device itself. Instead, you need to install the VPN on the router or mobile hotspot you use (like your phone) so that any device on your Wi-Fi network will now appear in the correct viewing location.
  • All of the VPN providers we recommend have helpful instructions on their main page to quickly install the VPN on your router. In some cases with smart TV services, after you install a cable network’s sports app, you will be asked to confirm a numeric code or click on a link sent to your email address registered with the smart TV . This is where having a VPN on your router will help, as both devices will appear to be in the correct location.
  • And remember that browsers can often give away a location despite using a VPN, so make sure you’re using a privacy-first browser to log into your services. We usually recommend Brave.

How we test VPN streaming for Sunday NFL games

For each game, we use a combination of ExpressVPN and either Paramount Plus (for CBS games) or Sling TV Blue (for Fox games). Using the maps on 506 Sports, we determine which servers are nearby and connect to one, then start the streaming service and tune in to the local CBS or Fox affiliate. If the channel comes through, it is successful and we report the results above. We’ve also screenshotted the relevant program guide (see above) on either the local CBS affiliate website or Sling TV.
