To learn the answers to these questions, or just to watch how your fantasy team's doing in real-time, you'll need to watch as the NFL regular season officially kicks off this Thursday, September 7, with the New England Patriots playing the Kansas City Chiefs.
Luckily, there are plenty of ways to watch all the action live, from now through February of next year when the season ultimately ends with the Super Bowl. Even if you're only in it for the halftime show, or the hilarious commercials, this guide will be your key to catching those, too.
First off: It's important to determine if a game in market or out-of-market. In market games are those that are broadcast locally, so if you live in the city where your favorite sports team is from, these games will usually be in market. If you live in Texas, however, and are a Patriots fan, most of these games will be out-of-market (unless they're playing the Cowboys).
