Tonight, the NFL Hall of Fame Game live stream brings Gang Green up against Cleveland for the first action of the fall. We watch the Browns vs Jets because there's been no NFL action since February. Sorry XFL and AFL, you just don't cut it. This NFL live stream is where it's at. And you can watch from anywhere with ExpressVPN

NFL Hall of Fame Game live stream channel, start time

The Browns vs. Jets live stream is today (Wednesday, August 3)
Time — 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT / 1 a.m. BST / 11 a.m. AEDT
• U.S. — Watch on NBC via Sling or Fubo.TV or on Peacock
• U.K. — Watch on Sky Sports Main Event
• Watch anywhere — try ExpressVPN 100% risk free

The Jets, of course, have practically earned this slot by being the most newsworthy team of the offseason. The acquisition of Aaron Rodgers makes Gang Green instant playoff contenders.

Unfortunately for NBC's ratings and those looking to see the high-profile QB in action, he won't be playing in this pre-pre-season game. Instead, 2021's No. 2 Draft pick Zach Wilson will get the ball, and try and erase last season's memories that led to him becoming second to Rodgers.

For the Browns fans, they're hopeful to see something out of Deshaun Watson, who may or may not start, and only threw for 58.2 percent last season. Nick Chubb's running will be key for Cleveland.

For those curious about the odds, DraftKings has the Jets (-135) as extremely slight favorites. At +114, the Browns are practically at even. These odds have grown slightly in either direction since this morning.

Here's everything you need to watch the NFL Hall of Fame Game live stream online, plus options that give you the game for free.
