The Packers vs Bills live stream is here, and it catches Buffalo after a dominant preseason performance and Green Bay in the midst of a quarterback conundrum. One team enters this NFL live stream looking to keep their spirits high before the regular season as the other is just trying to finish these exhibitions healthy.

If it’s possible to have a “revenge game” in the preseason, Bills quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has just that against his former team last week in Chicago. The one-time Bears second overall pick, Trubisky engineered four straight touchdown drives against his former club to open last week’s 41-15 stomping of the Bears. He threw for 228 yards on 20-of-28 passing with a touchdown completion to former Packer Jake Kumerow. Those 41 points mark the highest point total for any team this preseason. 

The Packers have had much different luck as they get ready for the regular season. With reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers sitting out the preseason, Green Bay has relied heavily on depth at the QB position. Jordan Love started their first game against the Texans, completing 12 of his 17 passes for 122 yards and a touchdown, but was knocked out of the game when he was sacked late in the first half. He missed last week’s game against the Jets with a shoulder strain.

The Packers then started their third-stringer Kurt Benkert against New York. He played all but the final series for Green Bay last week, before giving way to the recently re-signed Jake Dolegala and he threw an interception on his only pass attempt.  Love is expected to return and start for the Pack in this final week of the preseason. 

It hasn’t been all bad for the Packers. Some of their young draft picks have turned some heads. Most notably, fourth-round pick Royce Newman has solidified a starting job at right guard. Through his first two pro games, the ‘Ole Miss product has been Green Bay’s highest rated offensive player by Pro Football Focus. 

The Bills are big 9.5-point favorites against the Packers. The over/under is 37 points.

If FOX, ESPN, NBC and NFL Network have typically been enough to get you all the football you need, you could rely on Sling (which doesn't include CBS or NFL RedZone). You can get CBS NFL games via Paramount Plus, if you want.

The more comprehensive package comes from Fubo TV, 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 $50 per month, while the Fubo TV Standard package gives you all of the above, for $65 per month.

Fubo.TV: One of the best streaming services with the NFL Network, and the top pick for watching all of the 2021 NFL live streams, Fubo has all of the right network channels and the two cable channels you don't want to go without. Who needs cable? Not Fubo subscribers. It's got a 7-day free trial so you don't need to pay up front.View Deal

If you can stand to miss CBS games, Sling TV provides a middle ground. The $50 per month Sling Orange + Blue package has FOX affiliates, local NBC affiliates and ESPN.View Deal

NFL Sunday Ticket: No pre-season games are included, so the Packers vs Bills game won't be on NFL Sunday Ticket.
