Browns vs Chiefs live stream: how to watch the NFL playoff game online from anywhere
Can the Browns’ fairy tale story continue? Cleveland overcame Covid-induced adversity and 26 years of grim history to sucker-punch the Steelers, in a game that featured one of the most jaw-dropping opening quarters you’ll ever see. Read on as we explain how to get a Browns vs Chiefs live stream and watch the NFL playoffs online wherever you are right now for this Divisional Round clash.
They’re major underdogs again as they visit the home of the defending Super Bowl champs, the Kansas City Chief…but considering what went down last weekend, Kevin Stefanski may just be starting to believe.
KC should be healthy and well-rested thanks to that first-round bye, and their performances down the stretch suggested that they might have been in need of a break. They haven’t blown an opponent away since the Jets came to town all the way back in Week 8, though there’s every chance Andy Reid wanted it that way.
In Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill and Patrick Mahomes, they have one of the most destructive offenses in the league, and everyone knows they’ll be stepping things up in the playoffs.
However, it’s now been three weeks since the Chiefs’ starters last took to the field, which makes you wonder, at what point do you go from refreshed to rusty? With the way Cleveland got out of the traps last weekend, a sluggish start for Kansas City could prove fruitful for the Browns.
That said, nobody left in the playoffs allowed more passing yards than Cleveland in the regular season, and unlike Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh offense, KC have more than enough ability and experience to take full advantage.
If KC have a weakness it’s their run defense, and arguably no team in the NFL has the means to expose that more brutally than the Browns. Nick Chubb was a sight to behold in the Wild Card Round, gliding through Steelers bodies like a hot knife through butter, and he and his partner in crime Kareem Hunt should cause this KC D some serious problems.
Would a similarly ludicrous shootout be too much to hope for here? Follow our guide below as we explain how to watch Browns vs Chiefs online and get an NFL live stream from anywhere today.

100% FREE-TO-AIR channel 7Matewill be showing this game – so that’s obviously a great option for fans Down Under.
Even better, anyone located in Australia can also watch the channel absolutely free online. You just need to quickly create an account on its companion 7Plus streaming service and all that’s required is a name, verifiable email address, and Australia zip code.
It’s not the most elegant platform we’ve ever seen, but if you head there and click the ‘Live TV’ tab at kick-off time, the Chiefs vs Browns game should be on. Its lack of future listings is particularly frustrating but, hey… free is free, right?

The best way to watch NFL online in Australia
In general, Kayo Sports is our favourite streaming solution for cord-cutters Down Under – and it’s also offering a Chiefs vs Browns live stream. In fact, it should be showing all the NFL games from now on, plus loads more sporting coverage from top-tier soccer (La Liga, Serie A, FA Cup) to US sports like the NBA and NHL.
The streaming service has a Basic and a Premium plan, with the difference being you can watch on two devices with the Basic plan for $25 per month and on three devices with the Premium plan for $35 per month.
The best news? Both plans come with a FREE 14-day trial, so if you’re looking just to watch a specific game or two you can cancel after the 14 days.
Plus, our latest testing reveals that Australian residents who’ve subscribed to Kayo can use the streaming service even if they’re abroad – our No.1 rated VPN offering 3-months FREE right now with an annual plan working brilliantly with the platform as of January 2021.
ESPN, available through Foxtel, is broadcasting the game too, and you can stream it to your laptop or mobile device using the Foxtel Go app, but you’ll need your Foxtel ID to access the app.
Alternatively, live-for-it NFL fans can sign up for an NFL Game Pass as it is also available in Australia, and even though it is marginally more expensive you have a much wider range of features.
Should I buy an NFL Game Pass?
Watching NFL online has never been easier thanks to the wide variety of streaming services now available. However, the league also has its own streaming service called the NFL Game Pass which allows die-hard football fans to watch every game.
It’s really geared towards international fans and that’s where it’s a great option. In most of the NFL’s main international markets, a Game Pass Pro subscription will get you access to every single regular season and playoff game live, plus the Super Bowl, and you also get the league’s live highlights show, RedZone. It costs £1.99 a week or £50 through July 2021 in the UK so if you’re a big fan who watches multiple games every week, it breaks down quite favourably.
As well as the UK and Ireland, the service is available in countries like Mexico, Germany and most of Europe, and Australia – with only ‘domestic markets’ the US and Canada missing out on the full-fat offering.
Instead, there’s a US and Canada-only Game Pass option available for $99 a a year that lets you watch commercial-free full game replays right after they’ve finished. Not the worst offer we’ve ever heard, but don’t get caught out – GamePass does not offer live NFL games in the US or Canada.
Should you decide to give Game Pass a shot, apps for Android and iOS mobile devices as well as on the likes of Chromecast, Apple TV, Roku, PS4, and more – plus you can obviously watch on your laptop or desktop computer through a browser.
The only caveat for non-domestic markets (e.g. the UK) are that some games are subject to blackout restrictions due to deals with local pay TV providers (e.g. Sky).
