The Browns vs Cowboys game starts at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT today (Sunday, Oct. 4).
It's on FOX, as a part of Week 4 of the NFL 2020 season.

We've got a heck of a matchup with the Browns vs Cowboys live stream, and the latter should not expect an easy time getting to an even record. Last week, Cleveland got a bye-week that brings them to Dallas quite rested, plus they've won just two of their last four, just like the Cowboys — the only difference is that Cleveland's wins came in this season.

The big priority for QB Dak Prescott and his team should be to avoid turnovers, their historical achilles heel that's bit them earlier this season. Meanwhile, Baker Mayfield's Browns have been able to rely on its strong running game, but their defense has also been their critical concern. This NFL live stream will give the Browns a chance to show if they can upset on the road, which hasn't been its strong suit.

Last week saw Dallas take a frustrating loss to the Seattle Seahawks, and so they're coming into this game with a bit to prove. If they take this, they stay undefeated at home, which is still feeling like a weird concept in this age of reduced attendance.

Cleveland QB Baker Mayfield is familiar with this turf, though, as Dallas' $1.2 billion stadium is where he won the Big 12 title when playing for Oklahoma, only three years ago. Also, the Browns have a winning record (2-1) for the first time since 2014, and they'll want to keep it that way. 

Dallas, however, is at 1-2 and needs this game to put themselves at even for the season. They don't want to dig that hole any deeper. Here are the best ways to watch the NFL season continue with the Browns vs Cowboys live stream:

How to watch Browns vs Cowboys live streams with a VPN

Football fans, if for some reason you've had to leave your own "bubble" — or you can't get the NFL Network where you are for some strange reason — and you can't watch the Browns vs Cowboys live streams you want, you're not out of luck. With a virtual private network, or VPN, you can appear to be surfing the web from your home town (or somewhere that blackouts won't hit), and access the same streaming services you already paid for. 

Not sure which VPN is right for you? We've tested many different services and our pick for the best VPN overall is ExpressVPN. ExpressVPN offers superb speeds and excellent customer service, and IPVanish's low pricing is shocking.


We think speed, security and simplicity make ExpressVPN second to none. During our tests, we saw fast connection times, and we're impressed by the service's ability to access more than 3,000 services spread out across 160 locations in 94 countries. There's a 30-day money-back guarantee if you're not satisfied.


You should also check out IPVanish, another of the best VPNs, which has unlimited device connections, and it’s also great for working around Netflix’s georestrictions, so you can watch stuff on international Netflix plans that isn’t in your neck of the globe. Its annual plan works out to a low $5.20 per month, too.

Sling TV

If you can stand to miss CBS games, Sling TV provides a middle ground. The $45 per month Sling Orange + Blue package has FOX affiliates for this game, as well as local NBC affiliates and ESPN.
