What a difference a game makes. All hail Washington Football Team, giant slayers. Ron Rivera’s men have stepped things up of late and won three in a row – a feat that looked unimaginable just weeks ago – and their defeat of the otherwise unbeaten Steelers should do wonders for their confidence. Today they face the 49ers in what might just be the match-up of the weekend. Follow our guide as we explain where to find a Washington vs 49ers live stream and watch all the NFL action online from anywhere today.
Both franchises are 5-7, and going into this weekend the 49ers are seeded 11th and Washington are seeded 12th in the NFC. But whereas San Fran are stranded at the bottom of the NFC West, Washington are locked in a battle with the Giants for NFC East supremacy, which would not only see them reach the playoffs, but make them a host.
Washington vs 49ers live stream
Today’s Washington Football Team vs San Francisco 49ers game kicks off at 4.25pm ET/1.25pm PT (9.25pm GMT) at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Full NFL live streaming and TV channel details are below – and you can watch your preferred coverage from anywhere by adding a good VPN to your software roster.
Alex Smith’s comeback has been inspirational, with his performances getting better and better by the week for the Burgundy and Gold. Today he faces his first NFL team and it could prove an emotional reunion, his eight years in San Francisco being far from blissful at times.
It was Washington’s defense that really came up trumps against Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers last week, holding their offense to just 115 yards. Nick Mullens hasn’t had the happiest of times trying to salvage something from this season for the Niners, and San Fran’s running game will need to be on point to help their signal-caller out.
With so much at stake, Washington flying high and San Francisco as inconsistent as ever, this could be a brilliant game, so read on as we explain how to watch the Washington vs 49ers online and get an NFL live stream wherever you are right now.
How to watch the Washington vs 49ers from outside your country
If you’ve mismatched a holiday or you’re away on business and you want to watch your country’s coverage from abroad, then you’ll need to use a VPN. This will help you dial in to a location back in your home country to avoid geo-blocks and regain access to the content and services you already pay for back home.
A VPN is generally perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location when the big game is on.

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 £14.99 a week or £143.99 a year, 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).
