All Verizon Wireless customers have a unique opportunity to stream Monday Night Football free. The NFL Mobile App gives users access to all local and primetime games. This includes Monday Night Football, in addition to all other primetime games each week, like Thursday Night Football and Sunday Night Football. Those who are already Verizon users can just download the app and get to their Monday Night Football live stream once the game starts. The only catch is you can only watch content from NFL Mobile on your mobile devices as mirroring to your TV is blocked with the app.
