Watch Bills vs. Vikings, Colts vs. Bengals and more preseason week 4 games – NFL 2019 Online Live Stream

Cincinnati Bengals
NFL football is back… well, almost back. Fans of the college game get a full slate this weekend, but for those looking to watch largely meaningless NFL preseason games, all of the week 4 contests are happening tonight. With exactly a week left until opening day — the Packers take on the Bears Sept. 5 — it’s time for NFL teams to start making their final roster evaluations.

After last week’s surprise Andrew Luck news and Lamar Miller’s unfortunate injury, a few teams are looking for answers before the real games begin. What happens with the Chargers and Cowboys backfields? Is Duke Johnson the answer in Houston? Will the Colts let Jacoby Brissett take snaps against the Bengals? As fantasy footballdrafts continue to roll through the holiday weekend, we’ll start getting answers to these questions and more this Thursday night.

Here’s how cord cutters can watch the games live without cable.
