After a tumultuous week, the LA Chargers will take to their home field in Southern California today opposite the Buffalo Bills.
Last week, the Chargers suffered a crushing 21-63 defeat at the hands of the Las Vegas Raiders. It was the straw that broke the Charger management’s back, apparently: The day after, coach Brandon Staley and general manager Tom Telesco were both fired. The Bills, on the other hand, could be looking at a playoff spot if they can extend their two-game winning streak.
If you’re looking to watch the Bills vs. Chargers game online, read on. Below is a quick guide on how to livestream the Bills vs. Chargers game online without cable.
Where to Watch Bills vs. Chargers Online Without Cable
The only place to watch the Bills vs. Chargers game is Peacock. The streaming service will provide an exclusive broadcast of the game, meaning the Bills vs. Chargers will not be shown on any cable TV channel. (The only exception is the Buffalo-area NBC affiliate, WGRZ, which will show the game for residents).
If you’re not a Peacock subscriber, you can sign up here. Peacock does not offer a free trial, but subscriptions are very affordable. Peacock Premium (the cheapest plan) costs $5.99 a month and gets you live sports games and events (including the Bills vs. Chargers stream today) and tons of on-demand content from Yellowstone to Fast X. There’s also an upgraded Premium Plus plan, which removes ads on on-demand content, lets you livestream your local NBC channel 24/7, and lets you download shows and movies. The Premium Plus plan costs $11.99 a month.
How to Stream Bills vs. Chargers With a VPN
One other way to watch the Bills vs. Chargers game is to use a VPN with a live TV streaming service like DirecTV Stream. The streamer’s Choice package will let you watch NBC, as well as over 100 other live TV channels, and it starts with a five-day free trial.
Once you have a live TV streaming service, get a streaming-enabled VPN (virtual private network) like ExpressVPN. This will let you virtually change your streaming device’s location to somewhere in the Buffalo area, letting you access WGRZ through your streaming service. This way, you can watch the Bills vs. Chargers game without Peacock.

Bills vs. Chargers Odds
No surprise: Buffalo is heavily favored to nab a victory in Los Angeles tonight. The Bills are favorited in a 12.5-point spread, showing a -800 moneyline against the Chargers’ +560.
Last week, the Bills pulled off an impressive 31-10 win over the Dallas Cowboys — one of the NFC’s top teams. This was their second big win in a row — the week before they beat the Chiefs 20-17 — which has led many to believe the Bills may have found their groove just in time to make the playoffs. They’re now at 8-6, along with the Bengals, Jaguars, Colts, and Texans.
