The start of another National Football League season is approaching, and millions of viewers will be tuning in to watch their favorite teams and players hit the gridiron every Thursday, Sunday and Monday (and a few Saturdays).
However, if you're one football fanatic who is unable to catch your live locally televised game via a traditional format, fear not! There are plenty of live streaming options at your fingertips.
