The Chiefs vs Buccaneers live stream is scheduled to start at 4:25 p.m. ET/ 1:25 p.m. PT Sunday, November 29 on CBS.

Today's Chiefs vs Buccaneers live stream is a high-profile matchup between two of the biggest quarterbacks in the entire league. And Tom Brady's Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a lot to prove going into this big afternoon game.

After a 27-24 loss to the Rams on Monday night's NFL live stream, Tampa Bay needs wins to bolster its 7-4 record and stand up to the New Orleans Saints in the NFC South. At 9-1 after beating the Raiders in a 35-31 rematch, the Chiefs are already coasting to dominance in the AFC West and a shot at winning a second consecutive Super Bowl. Oddsmakers favor the Chiefs over the Bucs by three points.

Two generations of quarterbacks meet in this NFL live stream. In his two decades with the Patriots, Tom Brady has arguably established himself as the best QB of the 21st century. Now 43 and helming the Buccaneers, Brady is still a force, with 25 touchdown throws and nearly 3000 yards passing this season. 

But 25-year-old Patrick Mahomes is quickly rising as Brady's possible successor. Not only does he have 27 touchdowns, but just 2 interceptions all season (vs Brady's 9). Mahomes was league MVP (as well as Super Bowl MVP) last season and is odds-on favorite to take the title again.

Mahomes benefits from having a wide range of targets for passes. Travis Kelce leads with 66 receptions, for a whopping 896 yards and seven touchdowns--including the game-winner over the Raiders last Sunday.

Chiefs vs Buccaneers live streams in the US

In America, Chiefs vs Buccaneers is going to be broadcast on local CBS affiliates, which are included on most cable TV packages and available on one of our favorite streaming services: fuboTV. Game time is 4:25 p.m. ET/ 1:25 p.m. PT Sunday, November 29.

Sling TV, our other favorite live TV service, won't be enough to help, as its array of NFL game-hosting networks — FOX, ESPN, NBC and NFL Network — lacks CBS and NFL RedZone.

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 $45 per month, while the Fubo TV Standard package gives you all of the above, for $59.99 per month.
