The reigning Super Bowl champions Kansas City Chiefs’ unbeaten streak ended last week but they’re back with new running-back Le’Veon Bell and keen for a backlash display against the Buffalo Bills.

Tom Brady and his Tampa Bay Buccaneers go up against Aaron Rodgers’ Green Bay Packers this week, while Pittsburgh Steelers are the next opponents for the resurgent Cleveland Browns.

Not every NFL game will be shown live in the UK via standard broadcasters, but there will be more options than ever before following the announcement of NFL on Channel 5. has rounded up all the upcoming fixtures on TV in the UK including BST start times and broadcast details.

We’ve got a handy guide showing you how to watch the matches on British TV screens through BBC, Sky Sports, NOW TV and with an NFL Gamepass.
