NFL Week 7: How to watch, live stream the Panthers and Bears on CBS All Access
Want to watch the NFL on CBS but don’t have cable? CBS All Access has partnered with the NFL so you can stream local market games each Sunday to your computer, tablet or OTT device. It’s a concerted effort to allow viewers to watch football wherever they’re at, all without needing a cable or satellite subscription (or even a television) in your local market.
Obviously CBS All Access is about more than streaming football (although it doesn’t have to be). For as low as $5.99 a month, the service allows subscribers to stream hundreds of hit shows. The real benefit, however, lies in being able to watch CBS live wherever you are. If you got roped into a wedding, you’re stuck at a baby shower or you’re just a good mom or dad and want to be at your kid’s soccer game on Sunday, you can stream games directly to your tablet or laptop.

The Chicago Bears are coming off of a huge win against the Baltimore Ravens in overtime. The Carolina Panthers are coming off a Thursday night loss to the streaking Eagles. The Panthers are now 4-2 and stand atop the NFC South, while the Bears now have their sights set on a surprisingly wide open NFC North race with the injury to Aaron Rodgers and the recent struggles of the Lions. Rookie Mitchell Trubisky has been as advertised for the Bears so far, if a bit on the conservative side, but there’s an air of excitement in Chicago that they didn’t open the season with.
For the Panthers, they’re still riding high on Cam Newton, who threw the ball 52 times against the Eagles. The Panthers will look to get that number down come Sunday, as they try to widen their gap in the division from the Saints, who have won three straight. This game could be huge for the Panthers because a loss could knock them out of first place in the division, and sitting near the halfway point of the season, it’s a terrible time to cool down. The Falcons are also right on the Panthers’ heels, so in the competitive NFC South every game matters from here on out.
