Panthers vs Packers live stream channel, start time

The Panthers vs Packers live stream is scheduled to start at 8:15 p.m. ET/ 5:15 p.m. PT, today (Saturday, Dec. 19) on the NFL Network.

The Panthers vs Packers live stream is here and it's very likely to be a lopsided affair. At 10-3, Green Bay is on fire this season and boasts the most effective quarterback in the NFL. They are already locked in as champs of the NFC North, and so they've got little to play for.

Struggling at just 4-9 and battered by injuries, the Panthers are near the bottom of the league standings, with no shot at the playoffs. Carolina sports some solid players of its own, including QB Teddy Bridgewater and RB Christian McCaffrey, but it may not be enough. Oddsmakers currently expect Green Bay to prevail by a hefty 8 points in this NFL live stream.

Although Green Bay is very likely to win this NFL live stream, Carolina may still put up a spirited effort worth watching. Teddy Bridgewater is a very competent quarterback, completing 70.7 percent of his passes for 3,102 yards, 14 touchdowns and eight interceptions. And while the team's win-loss ratio looks grim, some of those recent defeats have been very close shaves--such as a single-point deficit to Minnesota in week 12 or two points to mighty Kansas City in week 9.

But the Panthers are going up against an especially tough rival in the Packers. The team's power is centered on quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He's completing 69.6 percent of his passes for 3,685 yards, 39 touchdowns (the most in the league) and a mere four interceptions--making him the top-performing QB in the NFL this season and a frontrunner for MVP. 

Rodgers has a perfect complement in running back Davante Adams, who has plucked 14 TD passes from the air. Green Bay is not an all-passing team, though. It runs an average of 124 yards per game, led by running back Aaron Jones with 823 yards and seven TDs. 

How to watch Panthers vs Packers live stream with a VPN

Football fans, if for some reason you've had to leave your own "bubble" — or you can't get FOX where you are for some strange reason — and you can't watch the Panthers vs Packers live streams you want, you're not out of luck.

Panthers vs Packers live streams in the US

In the US, Panthers vs Packers is going to be broadcast on NFL Network, which is available with most cable packages and on two of our favorite streaming services fuboTV and Sling TV. The game starts at 8:15 p.m. ET/ 5:15 p.m. PT Saturday, December 19.

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). 

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.

Fubo.TV:a 7-day free trial

Fubo.TV: One of the best streaming services with NFL Network, and the top pick for watching all of the 2020 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.

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 NFL Network for this game, as well as local NBC affiliates and ESPN.

NFL Sunday Ticket: Panthers vs Packers is one of the games that DirecTV subscribers can watch via NFL Sunday Ticket (provided that you're not living in the market of either team). Sunday Ticket streams live games in their entirety to televisions, computers, Android and iOS devices, and game consoles.

You can also get NFL Sunday Ticket as a stand-alone service — but only if you live in an area that doesn't get DirecTV service.
