Cleveland Browns lock horns with Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field in today's rare Christmas Day NFL match-up that has all the makings of a classic. It's a near freezing late afternoon in Green Bay. With Aaron Rodgers' Packers on the verge of securing the NFC North title, no quarter will be given. Kick-off is at 4.30pm ET / 9.30pm GMT. Make sure you know how to watch a Packers vs Browns live stream from anywhere the world. You can even watch for free in some places – we'll show you how with a VPN below.

There are two games on the schedule for Christmas Day 2021: Green Bay Packers vs Cleveland Browns and Indianapolis Colts vs Arizona Cardinals. Both are a big deal – and only the eighth and ninth games to be played on Christmas Day since 2010.

The covid-ravaged Cleveland Browns (7-7) are currently bottom of AFC North and struggling to stay in the race for an AFC Wild Card. Their season hangs on the health of their players including star QB Baker Mayfield, who was part of the first wave of Browns players to test positive for COVID-19 a week ago. Fingers crossed he's back to face Aaron Rodgers at Lambeau this week.

The Packers (11-3) are currently sitting pretty at the top of the NFC North – but they'll want to crush Cleveland to stave off red-hot rivals such as Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Arizona Cardinals and LA Rams, all of whom are in the running for the NFC's No.1 seed. The Packers might have struggled to run the ball against the Ravens last week, but the Browns' covid concerns could leave the field wide open for Rodgers.

It's a 4.30pm ET / 9.30pm GMT kick-off today, Christmas Day. Read on for more details on how to watch a Packers vs Browns live stream wherever you are in the world.

Watch a Packers vs Browns live stream from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant NFL rights holders, you won't be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30 days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.

2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For the NFL, you may wish to choose 'Canada' to access DAZN.

3. Then head over to DAZN on your browser or device and enjoy the Packers vs Browns live stream.
