How to watch Rams-49ers Monday Night Football online for free

The Rams are finally back, and while most will have TV access, there are options for those who do not.

The Los Angeles Rams face the San Francisco 49ers in the one of the team’s three guaranteed nationally televised games. They will also face the New York Giants on NFL Network in London in Week 7, and the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday Night Football in Week 17.

ESPN broadcasts Monday Night Football, so more than likely you’ll be able to watch the game. However, for folks not in front of a TV during those hours, or for those who don’t have cable there is an alternative for this week, and it’s free!

ESPN offers a streaming service called WatchESPN, but that requires a cable subscription. If you have a cable subscription and will not be at your TV, that could be an option. However, if you don’t have a cable subscription, another option is Sling TV. It is a streaming service that offers a whole host of channels, including ESPN. The cheapest package is $20 a month, but it’s a good way to cut the TV cord. More importantly, they offer a one-week free trial offer. You can sign up for it today, and cancel after the game if you are so inclined. It’s actually a pretty solid service, but if you don’t need it long-term, this is an option.
