On Monday, September 28 at 8:30 p.m. ET, the Kansas City Chiefs will go up against the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football. This throwdown promises to be an epic matchup, and NFL fans everywhere are excited to watch.
Monday Night Football is hosted weekly by ESPN. But of course, if you no longer have cable, you’re probably wondering how you can tune into ESPN to enjoy the game. Don’t worry, though, we’ve got you covered! You can still legally watch the Chiefs vs. Packers game online, and we’ll show you how.
Kansas City Chiefs vs. Green Bay Packers Preview
In the 2014 season, the Kansas City Chiefs had an up-and-down year, ending with a 9-7 record. Although they didn’t make the playoffs, the Chiefs actually defeated both teams that would go on to play in the Super Bowl: the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots. And, as usual, KC fans cheered their team on in record numbers, and actually broke the crowd noise record for Monday Night Football. With a solid lineup, an experienced coaching team, and some of the best (and loudest) fans in the NFL, the Kansas City Chiefs are looking at a solid season.
But will the Chiefs be up to the challenge of taking on the dominant Green Bay Packers? The Packers finished 12-4 last season, a record that speaks for itself. They clinched the Divisional Playoffs, but their Super Bowl dreams were crushed in the NFC Championship when the Seahawks snagged a late lead in overtime. The Packers had an impressive offensive lineup, and even led the league in scoring with a whopping 486 points. The Packers are a solid team, and they’re looking very good for the 2015-2016 season.
With two aggressive, skilled teams going head-to-head, each backed by thousands of loyal fans, this Monday Night Football throwdown promises to be one to remember!

If you live within the Kansas City area or the Green Bay area, you are likely within the local broadcasting range of one of these teams. If you are, you can simply watch the game on your local sports channel – for free, without cable. All you’ll need is an HD antenna. I use the Mohu Leaf 50, and I’ve been very happy with it.

Basic DVR’s will let you record, pause, rewind, fast forward, etc. while more advanced DVR’s have more features.
