Jets vs. Redskins Live Stream on Sling TV
One of our favorite options for the NFL preseason is Sling TV. And recent additions to the streaming service make it all the more better for cord-cutting NFL fans.
Sling subscribers now have access to NFL Network, which was announced earlier this month. Not all, but a lot of preseason games are being streamed live on NFL Network. And of course, you’re going to get the news, analysis and highlights that NFL Network provides.
Local games in-market are blacked out, so if you’re in New York or Washington, you’re out of luck. Sling also was updated to include live feeds from in-market NBC and Fox affiliates, but those affiliates aren’t broadcasting this game this week. (CBS doesn’t offer a streaming option for football fans right now.)
Sling TV starts at $20 per month and gives you access to ESPN and ESPN 2, plus a slew of other channels. We reviewed the service. Read it here. The streaming service still has a free trial day. If you like the service, you can get a free Roku 2 when you sign up for three months of service.

For $99/season (there is a 7-day free trial), you can watch the Jets vs. Redskins live stream on NFL Game Pass. The service that replaced the league’s old Game Rewind service offers access to all preseason games live and all 256 regular season games on-demand.
For Jets fans in New York and Redskins fans in Washington, you won’t be able to watch this preseason game live while in-market, but it’s available on-demand once the game clock hits zero.
If you’re an NFL super fan, the Game Pass NFL live stream does give you access to all games since the 2009 season on demand.
