How to watch the NFL: Browns vs. Steelers playoff online in the U.S.

Peacock is NBC’s new streaming service offering both free and premium subscription plans. Launched nationwide last July, Peacock is home to a variety of classic shows like The Office and 30 Rock as well as new exclusive content like the Saved by the Bell reboot and Psych 2. And since NBC holds NFL broadcasting rights, it’s also a great place to watch football games like the Cleveland Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers playoff round tonight (and you can do it for free, with no credit card required).

This NFL Wild Card Round is an interesting one. For starters, the Cleveland Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers rivalry is the oldest one in the American Football Conference, dating back to 1950, with more than 135 meetings between the two teams. This is also a big moment for Cleveland fans considering that the Browns have not made the playoffs since 2003 — a 17 year-long playoff drought that finally ended in the 2020 season.

Cleveland made it into the playoffs by narrowly defeating the Steelers in their previous meeting last Sunday, January 3. The Browns started off strong with the Steelers rallying in the second half, but it wasn’t enough of a comeback for Pittsburgh to prevent Cleveland from taking the game 24-22 and securing their seed in the playoffs for the first time in 17 years. Cleveland fans are no doubt excited to see their team’s playoff drought finally ended, but whether or not they can clinch another victory over their decades-old rival tonight remains to be seen.

There are three Peacock membership tiers available — a free plan, a $5 per month Premium plan with ads, and a $10 per month Premium Plus plan without ads — and you can watch the Browns vs. Steelers playoff game tonight by signing up for a free Peacock plan now. No credit card is required to sign up for the free subscription tier, and this plan also lets you enjoy other content including the first two seasons of The Office and more. The Premium plans give you full access to the entire Peacock library of shows and movies.
