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.

Green Bay Packers vs. San Francisco 49ers live stream: watch the NFL Divisional Round for free
An aerial view of the fans in the crowd at Levi's Stadium.

On Saturday night, the Green Bay Packers head west for the Divisional Round of the 2024 NFL Playoffs to play the top-seeded San Francisco 49ers. Fox will broadcast the game starting at 8:15 p.m. ET/5:15 p.m. PT on January 20. Fox will have their top broadcast team – Kevin Burkhardt (play-by-play), Greg Olsen (color), Erin Andrews (sideline), and Tom Rinaldi (sideline) – call the game from Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

The Packers became the first seven-seed to win in the Wild Card Round after throttling the Dallas Cowboys by a score of 48-32 last week. If quarterback Jordan Love plays like an All-Pro again, the sky is the limit for the Packers. However, the 49ers have the Packers' number, having won the last four head-to-head matchups in the postseason. For San Francisco, it's Super Bowl or bust -- anything less than that will be a disaster.

Best new movies coming to theaters in 2024
Tom Hardy and Austin Butler in The Bikeriders.

It seems that Hollywood was too quick to crown Bad Boys: Ride or Die as the savior of the summer box office. Because Pixar's Inside Out 2 blew away all box office projections with a $154 million opening last weekend. That's not too far behind Barbie's $162 million opening from last year. Inside Out 2 probably won't have the legs that Barbie did at the box office, but it's well on its way to being one of the biggest hits of the year. A $500 million domestic finish for Inside Out 2 is not an unreasonable estimate when the film finally leaves theaters.

In the short run, this week's new addition, The Bikeriders, has no shot at overtaking Inside Out 2. None. This battle was over before the first motorcycle started. Unfortunately for The Bikeriders, it's unlikely to take No. 2 either, since Bad Boys: Ride or Die proved to be good counterprograming for Inside Out 2 last weekend. That's likely going to mean a third place finish for The Bikeriders at best.
