Arizona passed its toughest assignment of the season so far with flying colors last weekend, Kyler Murray leading the Redbirds to a dominant 27-20 win over the mighty Rams, and you fear that this could be a long afternoon for their NFC West rivals. Read on as we explain how to get a 49ers vs Cardinals live stream and watch the NFL week 5 game online from anywhere.
The Cards have established themselves as not only Super Bowl contenders but as the strongest team in the league right now. And it’s not just Murray who’s firing on all cylinders, everything is clicking for Kliff Kingsbury right now.
If only the same could be said for Kyle Shanahan, whose roster is – stop me if you’ve heard this one before – going through the wars. Key men George Kittle and Jimmy Garoppolo are both nursing calf issues, which means the rookie Trey Lance may need to step up again.
That would make this his first ever NFL start… and he’ll be out there against the league’s only remaining unbeaten team, and without the Niners’ biggest weapon to aim for. Good luck, kid.
Follow our guide for how to watch the 49ers vs Cardinals online and get an NFL live stream wherever you are in the world right now.

How to watch 49ers vs Cardinals from outside your country
If you’ve mismatched a holiday or you’re away on business and you want to watch your country’s coverage from abroad, then you’ll need to use a VPN. This will help you dial in to a location back in your home country to avoid geo-blocks and regain access to the content and services you already pay for back home.
A VPN is generally perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location when the big game is on.
