Two of the NFL’s best teams will square off for tonight’s “Monday Night Football” game: Kansas City Chiefs vs. Los Angeles Rams.
The Chiefs and Rams are both 9-1 and, after their “Monday Night Football” game, it wouldn’t be surprising to see these teams playing again in the Super Bowl. The New Orleans Saints are the only other team with one loss so far in the 2018 NFL season.
The Chiefs vs. Rams game is being played at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and the host Rams are 3.5-point favorites to win, according to most betting odds. Meanwhile, both the Rams and Chiefs have high-powered offenses, and the over-under is a whopping 63.5 points.
Here’s how to watch the Chiefs vs. Rams on “Monday Night Football” — online or on TV, for free.
What Channel Is the Chiefs vs. Rams Game on Tonight?
“Monday Night Football” is on ESPN, with a kickoff scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET.
ESPN is a pay channel, of course, and it’s included with most basic satellite and cable TV packages. If you have cable or another pay TV service, all you have to do to watch the Chiefs vs. Rams is find ESPN.
If you don’t have cable, there are still ways to watch “Monday Night Football” for free tonight. Options for how to get a free live stream of the Chiefs vs. Rams are explained below.
How to Live Stream the Chiefs vs. Rams for Free

Specifically, the Yahoo Sports app and NFL app provide free live streams of “Monday Night Football” on ESPN, “Sunday Night Football” on NBC, “Thursday Night Football” on Fox, and all of the games broadcast on your local CBS and Fox stations on Sunday afternoons.

How to Watch “Monday Night Football” for Free Online
If you’re not a cable subscriber and don’t want to head to a bar, restaurant, or friend’s house to watch the Chiefs vs. Rams on “Monday Night Football,” it’s worth considering a free trial of a streaming TV service that includes ESPN in its packages.
Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV all include ESPN in basic packages, alongside dozens of other channels. And all of these live streaming TV services come with free trials that last about a week for new subscribers.
Tonight’s much-hyped “Monday Night Football” game could give you an excuse to try out one of these services. Afterward, you’d still have most of the week to test it out further and see if you want to become a paid streaming TV subscriber.
Starting at $25 per month, Sling TV is the cheapest streaming TV service available that includes ESPN. Other streaming TV services with ESPN generally start at $40 to $45 per month, though these options come with more channels compared to the basic Sling TV bundle.
If you simply want to watch the Chiefs vs. Rams online for free on “Monday Night Football” tonight and do not want to become a paying subscriber, remember to cancel the service in time. You’ll be charged in full for the first month if you do not cancel before the streaming TV service’s free trial period ends.
