This has been what I have seen. NBC somehow has the rights to steam all their games live. Something no one else seems to have, including NFL Network. They stripped their live coverage for something called live lookins. They show a couple minutes of the game, then go back to fabion or other stupid analyst who talk about something stupid. Then they come back in 10 minutes later for 2 minutes.
I have never seen fox or cbs steam live.
Europe and other non-american countries can buy nfl pass from nfl.com that lets them view games online officially.
In the end, its all about money, and not the fans. The NFL make more money with exclusive contracts with networks. So the US for now wont have official streaming through NFL.com for awhile.
NBC's contract must just have a good clause in it that allows them to stream.
