Once again the NFL is returning to the United Kingdom for the first time in 2017 today when the Baltimore Ravens and the Jacksonville Jaguars play today in London, but most football fans won’t be able to watch the game on television.
That’s because Verizon, who owns Yahoo, AOL, the Huffington Post, Complex and other properties, has exclusive global streaming rights to the game.
How to stream the game:
Fans can stream the game on desktop or mobile devices from any Verizon-owned site, as well as NFL Mobile, NFL.com, and the NFL app.
