Two of the NFL’s most successful franchises of all-time square off for a spot in the NFC Divisional Round, as the Green Bay Packers travel to AT&T Stadium to take on the Dallas Cowboys this afternoon, at 4:30 p.m. ET on Fox.

Though the second-seeded Cowboys enter as significant favorites, the Pack won two of three down the stretch and certainly have the offensive firepower to make this one interesting. As such, this stacks up as a must-watch battle during wild-card weekend. Fortunately, there are plenty of different ways you can watch a live stream of the game, including a handful of free options. Let’s take a look.

Not only does Fubo include Fox in the most markets (there’s only a few throughout the whole country that don’t get it live), but it also comes with 180-plus other TV channels, including CBS, NBC and ESPN. That means that you’ll be able to watch every available NFL game (not including the Dolphins vs Chiefs, which is exclusively on Peacock) this weekend, and you can do it for free with Fubo’s seven-day trial. Throw in the ability to watch on unlimited screens on the same network and 1,000 hours of DVR, and Fubo makes for the perfect option to watch the Packers vs Cowboys on Sunday.

Much like Fubo, they both include Fox in most markets in the US, they both have the other channels you need to watch every NFL playoff game and they both come with a free five-day trial, meaning you could potentially stagger all your free trials to get all the way to the Super Bowl.
