Bills vs Rams live stream: How to watch the 2022 NFL Season opener online

25

The Bills vs Rams live stream kicksoff the 2022 NFL regular season and it has L.A. fans hoping this NFL live stream will be just the first step towards a second-straight Super Bowl appearance. 

Matthew Stafford’s first season in Los Angeles could not have gone any better. On the way to winning the Super Bowl, the now 13-year veteran matched his career high for touchdown passes in a season with 41 and threw for 4,800-plus yards for the first time in 10 years. If the Rams are going to get back to the game’s biggest stage, it will again be on the arm of the 34-year-old signal caller.

This season Stafford has a brand-new target wide out Allen Robinson who signed with the Rams this offseason. The eight-year vet joins last season’s offensive player of the year and Super Bowl MVP Cooper Kupp as a key weapon in LA’s offense.

The Bills are coming off back-to-back postseason appearances, something they haven’t done in twenty years. Quarterback Josh Allen and head coach Sean McDermott have been the biggest reasons for the team’s turnaround. Allen has worked his way into MVP conversation in each of the last two seasons, while McDermott has helped turn the Bill’s defense into one of the best in the league. Last year they allowed the fewest yards and points-per-game in the NFL.

Despite their defensive rankings, the Bills still looked to improve on that side of the ball in the offseason.  They traded up in the draft to take cornerback Kaiir Elam with the 23rd overall pick and made a signing who the Rams are quite familiar with in Von Miller. 

Los Angeles acquired the veteran edge rusher at last season’s trade deadline and he helped them hoist the Lombardi Trophy. In 12 games as a Ram, Miller came up with 9 sacks, including two in the Super Bowl. The now 33-year-old Miller signed a six-year $120 million dollar deal with the Bills in March.   

According to the Action Network (opens in new tab) the Bills are a 2.5 point road favorite and -110 bet on the moneyline.

The game starts at 8.20 p.m. ET / 5.20 p.m. PT Thursday (Sept. 8). 

If FOX, ESPN, NBC and NFL Network have typically been enough to get you all the football you need, you could rely on Sling (which doesn’t include CBS, and RedZone is available with the Sports Extra add on). You can get your local CBS NFL games via Paramount Plus, if you want.

The more comprehensive package comes from fuboTV, as it has all five of the main channels you’ll want: CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC and the NFL Network. That’s why it’s one of the best streaming services.

It’s a case of “you get what you pay for” as Sling Orange & Blue (which you’d need to get ESPN, FOX, NBC and NFL Network) costs $50 per month, while the Fubo TV Standard package gives you all of the above, for $70 per month.

Oh, and if you’re OK with just watching the Bills vs Rams live stream on mobile devices (phones and tablets), it’s also available on the $4.99 per month NFL Plus.
