The divisional round of the 2020 NFL Playoffs has arrived and today you’ll get to see the Minnesota Vikings go up against the San Francisco 49ers at Levi’s Stadium. We’re here to make sure you catch every minute of today’s game – see how to get a Vikings vs 49ers live stream regardless of where in the world you are and it’s even free to watch in the US thanks to a simple stream.
This is a game you won’t want to miss as it will be the first time these two teams have played each other since their meeting in week 1 of the 2018 season.
Last Sunday, the Vikings surprised everyone when they defeated the Saints 26-20 during Wild Card weekend thanks to two field goals from place kicker Dan Bailey and two touchdowns from running back Dalvin Cook. However, it was an overtime touchdown from tight end Kyle Rudolph that led the team to victory. The Vikings are the underdog in today’s game against the 49ers and this is a much different team than they faced last season. Can the Vikings repeat last week’s success to win against the 49ers in the Divisional Round?
San Francisco is the No. 1 seed in the NFC and the team finished the regular season 13-3. The 49ers will be playing their first ever playoff game at Levi’s Stadium today as the team earned a first round bye in the playoffs after winning the NFC West. San Francisco will likely be looking to show Minnesota just how different of a team they have become since losing 16-24 to the Vikings during their only meeting last season. Will the 49ers be able to win their first playoff game at home and advance to the Conference Championships and possibly Super Bowl 2020?
Whether you’re a Vikings fan in Minnesota, a 49ers fan in San Francisco or just want to tune in to see who will win the Divisional Round in this year’s playoffs – we’ll show you how to get a Vikings vs 49ers live stream regardless of where in the world you are so you don’t miss a single touchdown.

Watch the Vikings vs 49ers game online from outside your country (or in a blackout)
Watching this game from the US, UK, Canada or Australia? We'll tell you how to catch the NFL game further down in the article.
But if you're somewhere else in the world – or if a coverage blackout is stopping you from watching in the US – then there's still a way you can live stream the Vikings vs 49ers online (and you don't even have to slum it with a grainy, illegal feed you've found on Reddit). Instead you could use a VPN – or Virtual Private Network – to change the IP address to one in a different state or country which does have a stream. And it's not even hard to do.

Can I watch with the NFL Game Pass?
Well it's a no and a yes. The NFL Game Pass in the US will only let you watch a replay of the game, but not the live action.
Interestingly, it's a different story with an International NFL Game Pass where all post season games are being shown absolutely live…shame you can't officially get access to that if you and your laptop's IP address is in the US.
