How to Watch the ‘Thursday Night Football’ Jets vs. Browns Game Online for Free Tonight

“Thursday Night Football” tonight features the New York Jets vs. the Cleveland Browns. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET, and the game is being broadcast on TV by the NFL Network.

Led by rookie quarterback Sam Darnold, the Jets pulled off a surprisingly dominant 48-17 win over the Detroit Lions in week one of the 2018 season. The Jets are now 1-1 after losing to their AFC East rival Miami Dolphins last Sunday. The “Thursday Night Football” betting odds say the Browns are 3-point favorites to win tonight.

The Cleveland Browns were 0-16 last season, and they have yet to win a game during the 2018 season as well. The Browns wound up in a 21-21 tie against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the season’s first game, and lost 18-21 to the New Orleans Saints last weekend.

Even though the Jets vs. Browns game is airing on the NFL Network — a pay TV channel — there are ways to watch “Thursday Night Football” for free, regardless if you have cable or not. Here are all the details.

How to Live Stream ‘Thursday Night Football’ Games for Free

As we have previously reported, the 2018 season marks the first time that fans can live stream NFL games on their phones — for free, without having a specific wireless provider, and without being asked to log in with a pay TV account and password.

Both the Yahoo Sports app and the NFL App let fans live stream locally broadcast Sunday games (including your area’s teams), as well as nationally broadcast primetime games, including NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” ESPN’s “Monday Night Football,” and “Thursday Night Football,” which is broadcast on a mix of Fox and the NFL Network.

There are some restrictions for watching NFL games via these apps — the big one being that you can only use them on your phone, not a TV. Another complication is specific to “Thursday Night Football” games like the Jets vs. Browns tonight. In an earlier story on how to watch NFL games online, we explained that you might not be able to use the apps for live streaming if you’re connected to wifi:

For the apps to function properly, you must download the latest version. If you have an older version, you may be asked for a pay TV log-in. And while you can live stream most of the games available on the NFL App or Yahoo Sports app while connected to wifi, it seems there are some games that can only be streamed if wifi is turned off. Specifically, it appears as if the “Thursday Night Football” games airing exclusively on the NFL Network can be live streamed with either app only if you’re using data, not wifi. Obviously, that data use has the potential to make “free” streaming a bit more costly, depending on your wireless plan.

How to Watch the Jets vs. Browns Online for Free — on TV or a Laptop

The other way to watch “Thursday Night Football” for free is to sign up for a free trial of a streaming TV package that includes the NFL Network. Streaming TV services that offer the NFL Network in packages include Fubo TV, PlayStation Vue, DirecTV Now, and Sling TV.

(Note: A couple of other well-known streaming TV services, Hulu Live and YouTube TV, do not offer the NFL Network in any of their packages.)

All streaming TV packages are available to new subscribers with free trial periods of five to seven days. You can use one with the NFL Network to watch the Jets and Browns play on “Thursday Night Football” tonight, and you can watch on any kind of screen you like — phone, laptop, tablet, or connected TV.

Just remember to cancel the service before the free trial period ends, or you’ll be charged the full monthly rate. Streaming packages with the NFL Network cost between $ 25 and $ 50 per month, and include dozens of other channels.

Does Amazon Prime Live Stream NFL Games?

Amazon and the NFL signed a contract for the 2018 season allowing some “Thursday Night Football” games to be live streamed for free on Amazon Prime Video. Unfortunately, tonight’s Jets-Browns game is not one of the games you can watch at Amazon.

The “Thursday Night Football” games being broadcast on TV by the NFL Network — including the Jets-Browns tonight — are not being live streamed by Amazon. However, there are 11 “Thursday Night Football” games being broadcast on Fox this season, and all of them are also being live streamed by Amazon. The season’s first “Thursday Night Football” matchup airing on Fox (and simultaneously available for free live stream at Amazon Prime Video) is the Los Angeles Rams vs. Minnesota Vikings next Thursday, September 27.

To live stream the Rams vs. Vikings game on Amazon Prime, as well as future “Thursday Night Football” action, simply head to Amazon Prime Video on the night of the game. Amazon’s NFL live streams are available only for members of Amazon Prime, the service that includes two-day shipping on most Amazon purchases and unlimited viewing of certain Amazon video and music. Amazon Prime subscriptions cost $ 119 per year or $ 12.99 per month, after a 30-day free trial period.

How Ballet Dancer Misty Copeland Shattered Barriers

When Misty Copeland first joined the American Ballet Theater, one of the most prestigious dance companies in the world, at age 17, she couldn’t help but feel like an outsider. “We don’t know in history that black women, from the beginning of time in ballet, have been told to lighten their skin, and to shade their nose in a certain way to look white,” Copeland told an audience at a WeWork office in New York City on Sept. 17. “A big part of my youth at American Ballet Theater was hearing those words.”

Copeland, however, more than proved that she belonged. In 2015, she became the first African-American woman to be named principal dancer at the American Ballet Theater. That same year, she was named to the TIME 100, TIME’s annual list of the world’s most influential people. Since then, Copeland has inked endorsement deals with Under Armour, Estee Lauder, Dannon and other companies.

Her road to the top of ballet was an unusual one. “I had a very chaotic upbringing,” she said. One of six children raised by a single mother, Copeland says she was living in a motel when she took her first ballet lesson, at 13, at a Boys & Girls Club in San Pedro, Calif.

Many ballerinas begin training soon after they start walking. But a late start didn’t stop Copeland. By the time she joined the American Ballet Theater, Copeland stood out both because of her graceful performances, and inescapably, her race. “My first three of four years in the company, it was the first time it hit me that I was alone,” Copeland said. “That I’m the only black woman. It was the first time race was brought to my attention. It was shocking.” For example, Copeland says at one point she was told she couldn’t perform in the second act of Swan Lake, the popular ballet first performed in late 19th-century Russia, because of her skin color. Some people were whispering that she shouldn’t be in Swan Lake at all, Copeland says.

As principal dancer, Copeland has taken a special interest in mentoring dancers of color and diversifying ballet. She has responded to letters from aspiring dancers and remained connected to the Boys & Girls Club. In 2016, Mattel released a Barbie doll in Copeland’s likeness. Copeland made sure no skin tone was lightened. No one shaded her nose. “That was extremely important to me,” she said. “It’s so empowering for young girls to grow up with a brown Barbie that’s a ballerina.”

Copeland’s talk, which was moderated by TIME correspondent Haley Sweetland Edwards, was the third event in the TIME 100 x WeWork Speaker Series.

Fan Catches Possum on a Power Trip at the Big Football Game and It Was Clearly a Good Luck Charm

As the Cleveland Browns stormed to their first win since 2016, one fan’s act of courage seemed to usher in a new era for the city’s long-suffering football team.

In the midst of the Browns’ 21–17 victory over the New York Jets on Thursday night, a possum was spotted wandering the stands at FirstEnergy Stadium. Security was quickly alerted to the situation and attempted to coral the wild marsupial. But it wasn’t until one daring Cleveland fan grabbed the animal by its tail and gently placed it in a box that the incident was resolved.

The Browns went on to snap their 635-day losing streak just a few hours later, a turn of events that instantly elevated the possum to good luck charm status. By Friday morning, the newly-nicknamed “Rally Possum” already had its own t-shirt.

And of course, Twitter was rife with on-point possum jokes, including some from an account posing as the possum itself.

Legendary Female Surfers Make Historic Debut at Azores Airlines World Masters Championship

WSL PRESS RELEASE

PRAIA DE SANTA BARBARA, Sao Miguel – Azores Islands (Wednesday, September 19, 2018) – The Azores Airlines World Masters Championship resumed today in clean three-to-four foot surf and strong offshore winds at praia de Santa Barbara in Sao Miguel. The day witnessed historic action with the first-ever women’s Masters heats surfed on Day 2 of the event’s waiting period.

Some of the pioneers of women’s professional surfing put the competition jersey back on for the first time in years and showed how much great athletes they are, putting on big performances in their qualifying round.

The most successful surfer in the 1980s with four World Titles Frieda Zamba (USA) dominated the women’s opening round of competition. While most previous heats concentrated on the lefts, Zamba widened the field of possibilities with an incredible right on her backhand. Her three-turn combination was flawless and judges rewarded her with a 9 point ride, the highest score of the women’s event so far.

“It’s super fun out there I can’t complain!” Zamba said. “I found that staying active on the inside and not sitting too far out, gives you more opportunity to get those that come across and I found some really fun ones. It’s awesome to be here, I haven’t seen most of the girls in so long and we’ve had some good laughs and it’s a great reunion. It’s a good feeling to be part of that historical event and all the girls are surfing great!”

Zamba went on to win her second qualifying heat in the early afternoon and effectively eliminated long time rival Pam Burridge (AUS) from competition.

Layne Beachley (AUS), the seven-time World Champion from Manly had a similar great start in this event, taking out her two Round One matchups against Rochelle Ballard (HAW) and Jodie Cooper (AUS). Beachley took a page out of Zamba’s book and ripped the rights to pieces on her forehand to advance into the Semifinals.

“I’m not particularly happy with how I performed in that second heat but a win’s a win!” Beachley analyzed. “I’m super happy we got better conditions than the guys! We’ve been here for a few days so fortunately got to do some sightseeing and enjoyed the culinary delights of the Azores. It’s been good to catch up with everyone too, I haven’t had a chance to surf with Frieda since she comboed me at the OP Pro in 1990 so to spend some quality time in the water with her is cool.”

Rochelle Ballard (HAW) and Pauline Menczer (AUS) placed second in groups one and two respectively and will join Zamba and Beachley in the Semis.

The men’s Grand Masters took over the lineup after six heats of the women’s event and the show continued with an incredible first clash between the defending champion Iain Buchanan (NZL) and Glen Winton (AUS). ‘Ratso’ Buchanan seemed in total control with two good scores and his opponent in a combination situation. But Winton came back with an incredible left, locked in a quick little tube time before slaying two huge turns on the wave face for a 9.27, the highest single score of the event. He found a couple more waves and managed to overtake Buchanan and take the win.

“I was the first surfer here on the island and got some good practice so I could get a 9 and save myself!” Winton joked. “I have obviously been in similar situations in my career but not for a long time! Even with that 9, I needed another decent wave so it wasn’t easy. We are all born competitors, and back in the day we had to make the events we wanted to compete in ourselves, so the Grand Masters really appreciate the opportunity here. What’s wonderful is we all got healthy for this event, I personally had to work really hard for the last four months to get in a good enough shape     to compete.”

Legendary Pipe surfer Michael Ho (HAW) went out in the following heat and found the barrel right away to post two good 7+ scores and take the win.

“I was just happy to get a good start cause yesterday I did five mistakes and didn’t want to repeat it,” Ho stated. “Watching Glen’s waves in the heat before got me really fired up and I realized there were a few little barrels out there.”

In the Grand Masters, Australians Rob Bain, Simon Anderson and Cheyne Horan qualified for the Semifinals with two heat wins each. Winton, Ho and Hans Hedemann (HAW) will take part in a three-man surf-off to fight for the fourth ticket into the Semis.

The men’s Masters then continued with three more heats but slightly less pressure as surfers in this category have three heats each to make their case and advance into the Quarterfinals.

Dave Macaulay (AUS) and Sunny Garcia (HAW) locked in a tight battle for first and exchanged good scores, ultimately going Macaulay’s way. Shane Beschen (HAW) followed with a dominant effort to dispatch Gary Elkerton (AUS) and Fabio Gouveia (BRA) took today’s last heat win over Damien Hardman (AUS).

The Masters will be back at 10:30 a.m Thursday to complete the remaining nine heats of Round One, with the Grand Masters coming in later to potentially run their Round Two, three-man surf off to decide who will take the final ticket for the semis. The women’s Masters event has been called OFF for Thursday.

Michael Phelps Opens Up About Retirement and Mental Health Awareness: ‘I Struggle Through Problems Just Like Everybody Else’

Now, when 28-time Olympic medalist Michael Phelps swims butterfly, it’s usually for an audience of one. When his 2-year old son Boomer waves his arms in imitation of the stroke, he knows what the toddler wants to see. “He knows the motion of the butterfly,” says Phelps. “So I do a couple of laps.”

Since leaving competitive swimming after the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janiero, Phelps has been enjoying retirement in Arizona with his wife Nicole and sons Boomer and Beckett, seven months. He’s also become an advocate for water conservation (he’s in his second year as global water ambassador for Colgate, working to remind people to turn off the faucet while brushing their teeth) and mental health awareness, and has openly discussed his struggle with depression.

“For me to know there are a lot of people out there in the world who are struggling the same exact way I do still struggle and have struggled — I’m a human being. But I was so used to compartmentalizing everything,” he says. “Being an athlete you’re supposed to be this strong person who doesn’t have weaknesses, doesn’t have any problems. No, that’s wrong. I struggle through problems just like everybody else does. I wanted to open up and just talk about it. It is what makes me who I am.”

Phelps says he now sees the “red flags popping up when I’m starting to go down that path,” and knows when to reach out to his wife or therapist. “Communication is something I really just learned, just to be completely wide open,” he says. “I joke that I learned how to communicate when I’m 30. But I did. And it’s better late than never.”

Those skills are making the connections he has with the U.S. national swim team stronger as well; he admits that at the first of his five Olympic Games, he probably wasn’t as approachable as he was during his last Olympics in Rio. “I think it’s crazy that in the four previous Games people did not reach out to me because I was probably a little different, and hard to approach then,” he says. “But going into [the 2016 Games] I was able to kind of relax, let my guard down a little bit and enjoy the experience. It was the first time I ever talked to everybody on the national team. That might be why I’m being approached more, and I like that. I want to help continue to grow the sport.”

It’s a new role for Phelps, who welcomes the responsibility, and applauds other athletes who are using their visible positions to advocate for issues that are important for them. “For me, to be able to have that power, to have people listen to you and to open up and speak about things that are important to me whether that is mental health or saving water; that’s amazing,” he says. “I never thought people would sit and listen to me, or care about what I was saying. It’s pretty incredible to have that voice and be able to spread my message as loud as I can to get people to really open up, understand what is actually going on and what we are doing to the world we live in, no matter what it is.”

Just don’t expect him to be racing again at the next Olympics in Tokyo in 2020. Now, he just laps the pool as an escape. “It’s the only time it’s peaceful, quiet and I can escape in my own head and let go of whatever I need to let go of,” he says. “I always thought of myself as a swimmer and that’s it. Now I try to think of myself more as a human. And that’s a good way to live.”

Serena Williams Breaks Silence on U.S. Open Controversy

Serena Williams has maintained that she did not receive coaching in the U.S. Open women’s singles final in her first public comments since the post-match press conference.

In a forthcoming interview with Australian talk show The Project, the tennis superstar refuted comments that her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, made about gesturing to her from the stands during her matchup with Japan’s Naomi Osaka.

“We all know that all the coaches coach at every match, all year long,” Mouratoglou said. “So this is the rule. Then there is the psychology the chair umpire is supposed to have. Tell Serena, ‘I’ve seen your coach do a movement, stop, otherwise you’ll have a warning.’ I don’t understand why he didn’t do that.”

Chair umpire Carlos Ramos issued Williams a code violation when he spotted Mouratoglou making a hand gesture toward her. This led to an argument between Williams and Ramos that escalated throughout the final. “I don’t cheat to win, I’d rather lose,” Williams was heard telling him.

“He [Mouratoglou] said he made a motion,” Williams says in a clip from the interview. “I don’t understand what he was talking about. We’ve never had signals.”

Williams also reasserted her belief that a gender-based double standard exists in tennis. “I just don’t understand,” Williams told The Project. “If you’re female, you should be able to do even half of what a guy can do.”

Eli Manning’s Disappointed Face Makes For a Very Relatable Meme

The New York Giants lost miserably to the Dallas Cowboys, 20-13, on Sunday in Arlington, Texas, an event that provided ample opportunity to see the distressed and pained facial reactions of Giants quarterback Eli Manning as he was sacked multiple times during the game.

Manning, whose emotive faces have captured the whimsy of the Internet before, seemed to be fairly stressed after getting hit hard during the game, something that football fans on social media quickly capitalized on to make the season’s most relatable meme, appropriately dubbed “Eli Manning face.”

For anyone who’s had things go awry, Manning’s face feels like a perfect representation of what it feels like to be simultaneously horrified and disappointed, as the tweets below demonstrate.

Week 2 of the 2018 NFL season features the Seattle Seahawks vs. the Chicago Bears on “Monday Night Football.”

Like all “Monday Night Football” matchups, the Seahawks-Bears game is being broadcast on TV by ESPN. But it is possible to watch tonight even if you don’t have cable TV. The 2018 season brought with it new options for live streaming NFL games for free on smartphones. Streaming TV services such as Hulu Live and Sling TV have packages that include ESPN as well.

Here are all the game details and all the options to watch “Monday Night Football” for free.

What Time Does “Monday Night Football” Start?

Kickoff for the “Monday Night Football” Seahawks-Bears game is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET, on ESPN. The Chicago Bears and the Seattle Seahawks both lost their first games of the season, and both will be looking to snag their first victories of 2018.

The game is being played at Soldier Field in Chicago, and the Bears are 3.5-point favorites to win. Among the other Seahawks-Bears betting odds, the over-under is set at about 43 points by most sports books.

How to Live Stream the Seahawks-Bears Game for Free

The 2018 season marks the first time that football fans can live stream NFL games for free on their phones, without any special subscription package, via the Yahoo Sports app or the NFL App

You can’t live stream every NFL game, however. Once you have the newest version of one of the apps downloaded, you can watch NFL games aired by on your local broadcast networks, as well as nationally broadcast games, including NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” ESPN’s “Monday Night Football,” and Fox and the NFL Network’s “Thursday Night Football.” These app live streams are available to watch on smartphones, and cannot be viewed on TV.

As we’ve reported before, some fans have complained that the new apps’ live streaming capabilities have been glitchy thus far in the season. Also, because you’re generally restricted to watching on a tiny smartphone screen, watching the game online via the Yahoo Sports or NFL App is hardly the optimal viewing experience.

If you don’t have cable and find it too frustrated to stream “Monday Night Football” on a phone, consider subscribing to a streaming TV service (explained below).

How to Watch “Monday Night Football” Online on TV — for Free

The streaming TV services Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, Sling TV, and YouTube TV all have packages that include ESPN. They also all offer free trial periods of five to seven days for new subscribers. So it’s possible to use them to watch “Monday Night Football” tonight for free on any device of your choosing — including a connected TV.

Just be sure to cancel the service before the free trial period expires, assuming you do not want to become a paid subscriber. If you don’t cancel in time, you’ll be charged the full monthly rate — which starts at around $ 25 to $ 45 depending on the provider and package you choose.

Note that not all streaming TV services come with ESPN. For example, the sports-focused streaming service Fubo TV comes with access to many NFL broadcasts including local Sunday games on Fox and CBS, as well as “Sunday Night Football” and “Thursday Night Football,” but its packages do not come with ESPN. In other words, you can’t use Fubo TV to watch “Monday Night Football.”

Vontae Davis Retired From the NFL at Halftime. Good for Him.

When Buffalo Bills cornerback Vontae Davis took the highly unusual step of ending his NFL career at halftime of Buffalo’s 31-20 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, the predictable rebukes swarmed down on him. One columnist called him “selfish.” Another reporter labeled his decision “an unconscionable act.” Some of his teammates were understandably perturbed. Buffalo linebacker Lorenzo Alexander said Davis’ halftime retirement was “completely disrespectful to this teammates.”

Davis, who started the game for Buffalo, put on his street clothes at the half, and eventually left the stadium during the game. “Today on the field, reality hit me fast and hard,” Davis said in a statement, released after the game, confirming his retirement. “I shouldn’t be out there anymore.”

By trusting his gut on this one, however, Davis may have done his teammates a service. Too many things can go wrong in football under normal circumstances. If a player is distracted, his mind elsewhere, the consequences could be catastrophic.

Sure, Davis could have just asked out of the game due to its physical toll, and announced his retirement afterwards. Or at least taken a night to sleep on it. But there’s something authentic about Davis having what he termed an “honest moment” with himself, prioritizing his long-term health over his professional football career, and declining to just go through the motions. Davis, a 10-year veteran, was done with football. He knew it. Leave it behind and never look back.

So many people fantasize about saying “take this job and shove it.” Davis got to live that dream. But just because he’s an NFL player, he’s a pariah?

Over the years, NFL coaches, executives, players, media and fans have created a culture that equates professional football with the battlefield. Players with the “warrior mentality” are lionized: you must view your teammates as brothers in arms.

But some perspective is key. Davis didn’t go AWOL. He decided to stop playing a game. He also likely cost himself a hefty payday, as Buffalo can likely recoup most of the $ 5 million Davis was owed this season.

A year after making the playoffs for the first time in nearly two decades, the Bills are back to frustrating Buffalo’s irrationally loyal fans. The Baltimore Ravens wiped them out 47-3 in the season opener; in that game starting Bills QB Nathan Peterman turned in one of the uglier stat lines (5-18, 24 yards, 2 interceptions) you’ll ever see. The team’s now in the hands of promising, but unproven, rookie quarterback Josh Allen. The schedule does Buffalo no favors: the Bills face a couple of tough NFC North teams, the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers, over the next two weeks.

Buffalo has bigger problems to worry about than an aging, injured cornerback who wanted out. The Bills needs to move on from Vontae Davis. Just like Vontae Davis moved on from them.

Eagles’ Mike Wallace suffers fractured fibula

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Mike Wallace has a fractured fibula and will miss the next few weeks, coach Doug Pederson announced Monday. The Eagles have not decided yet whether Wallace will be placed on injured reserve, Peterson said. Wallace suffered the injury in the first half of Sunday’s 27-21 loss to Tampa Bay on Sunday. The injury makes the Eagles suddenly thin at wide receiver. Mack Hollins was placed on injured reserve before Week 1 with a groin injury, and Philadelphia is still waiting for Alshon Jeffery to return from shoulder surgery. Pederson said Monday that Jeffery is still considered week-to-week. Wallace was targeted three times in the Eagles’ first two games but didn’t have a reception.

This Football Player Retired at Halftime Because He Felt He ‘Shouldn’t Be Out There Anymore.’ People Are in Disbelief

Sunday’s biggest shock in sports came when Buffalo Bills cornerback Vontae Davis retired abruptly at halftime.

It wasn’t how the 10-year NFL veteran imagined his departure, but in a post-game statement, he said the physical toll was what dawned on the field.

“I shouldn’t be out there anymore,” the 30-year-old Davis said, noting the toll the game had taken on his body. “The season is long, and it’s more important for me and my family to walk away healthy than to willfully embrace the warrior mentality and limp away too late … This was an overwhelming decision, but I’m at peace with myself and my family.”

Davis did not cite a specific injury, but research has suggested a link between playing football and traumatic brain injuries.

Davis signed onto the struggling Bills team earlier in the year, and his mid-game departure took his coach and teammates by shock.

“[Davis] pulled himself out of the game,” Bills coach Sean McDermott said. “He communicated to us that he was done.”

“Never have seen it ever,” linebacker Lorenzo Alexander said. “Pop Warner, high school, college, pros. Never heard of it. Never seen it. And it’s just completely disrespectful to his teammates.”

Fans watching online were as stunned by Davis’ timing as ever, and could not resist the joke opportunities.

The Los Angeles Chargers ultimately beat the Buffalo Bills 31-20, laying out a challenging road ahead for the team.
