How to watch Jaguars vs Chargers: stream NFL games for free


Two talented young quarterbacks could face off when the Los Angeles Chargers host the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, September 25 at 4:05 p.m. EST on CBS.

The game will take place at SoFi Stadium and will be broadcast on CBS. Viewers without cable or access to NFL games can watch the game for free with a trial of DirecTV Stream, fuboTV, NFL+ or Paramount Plus.


Fans can stream NFL games on CBS using Paramount Plus’ essential plan. As long as the game airs on your local CBS station, it will be available to stream via live TV for the duration of the game.

It remains to be seen whether these young quarterbacks will face each other for the first time this weekend or not. Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert is still listed as questionable on Thursday. Herbert has been limited in training this week due to a broken rib cartilage. The injury occurred after receiving a hit from Kansas City’s Michael Danna during the fourth quarter of last Thursday’s 27-24 loss to the Chiefs. The Chargers would likely start Chase Daniel if Herbert couldn’t play, according to the AP. The Jaguars beat the Indianapolis Colts 24-0, their defense collecting three takeaways for the second straight game.

JAGUARS PLAYER TO WATCH: WR Christian Kirk has 12 catches for 195 yards and two touchdowns, giving Trevor Lawrence a go-to receiver and coach Doug Pederson a chess piece that lines up in the slot, in the backfield and outside.

CHARGERS PLAYER TO WATCH: OLB Joey Bosa has 3 1/2 sacks and five tackles for a three-game loss to Jacksonville. He had two sacks in a 49-10 game against the Jaguars in 2019, one of 10 career games with at least two sacks.

KEY MATCHUP: Chargers RB Austin Ekeler vs. Jaguars LB rookie Devin Lloyd. Given the uncertainty of the Los Angeles quarterback and offensive line, Ekeler will have to step in as a runner and receiver. He struggled on the ground for two games, averaging just 2.68 yards per carry. Lloyd has been a household name on the West Coast since his time at the University of Utah, and the first-round pick picked up his first career interception in the game-clinching win over Indianapolis.

KEY INJURIES: The Jaguars have no player on their injury report for the second straight week, a rare stretch of health for any NFL franchise. … Chargers QB Justin Herbert is questionable to play after fracturing his rib cartilage against the Chiefs. Chase Daniel would make his first start since 2019 if Herbert couldn’t go. … C Corey Linsley (knee) missed practice Wednesday, while RT Trey Pipkins III (foot) was a limited participant. … WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) returned to practice this week after sitting out against Kansas City and is questionable.

SERIES NOTES: The Chargers have won the last two meetings and eight of the last nine. … The Jaguars are 0-5 against the California Chargers. … Herbert earned his first NFL victory against Jacksonville of 2020, throwing for 347 yards and three touchdowns without an interception and running for a score.

STATS AND ITEMS: The Jaguars have forced at least three turnovers in consecutive games for the first time since 2019. … WR Marvin Jones Jr. has caught an assist in 116 consecutive games, the fourth-longest active streak in the NFL. … Jacksonville has five different defenders who intercepted a pass. … The Jaguars outscored their opponents 16-0 in the third quarter. … OLB Josh Allen forced a fumble in back-to-back games to start the season. He had three forced fumbles in his first 40 games. … Now in his second season with Herbert, Daniel is yet to throw a pass for the Chargers. … Los Angeles hasn’t allowed a touchdown this season. … Ekeler had 101 rushing yards and 112 receiving yards against Jacksonville in 2019. He needed just eight carries and four receptions, the fewest total touches in NFL history to reach 100 rushing yards and in reception. … The Chargers have at least a 10-yard run, a 12-yard run by backup RB Joshua Kelley against Las Vegas. … S Derwin James Jr. needs 11 tackles over the next two games to pass Johnathan Cyprien (282) for most by a defensive back in his first 40 games dating back to 1991. … OLB Khalil Mack ranks second in the NFL in sacks (3 1/2) and is tied for fifth in tackles for loss (3).

FANTASY TIP: No one will expect much from the Chargers passing game if they have to turn to Daniel, but WR Mike Williams could still be worth using. Daniel has frequently targeted another big-body option that can be productive in the red zone, and Allen Robinson ended up making seven receptions for 97 yards and two touchdowns for the Bears in London the last time Daniel started a game in the NFL.
