The 2012 NFL season, the 93rd regular season of the National Football League, is set to begin Wednesday, September 5, 2012, and will end with Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday, February 3, 2013, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
Here are some of the legitimate ways to watch NFL games beyond those available on over-the-air broadcasts and basic cable:
•With the software(the best way):
Watch online now: Satellite Direct.

This channel carries all the preseason games, weekly season games and hosts the popular show, NFL Total Access. It also includes “NFL Replay,” which offers the five best games of the week.
•For a free but legitimate viewing option, check out Hulu‘s NFL page online. You can watch past games, highlights and interviews. Just look under your favorite team’s name or in the Game of the Week section.
They signaled that Mark Sanchez might not be the franchise QB after all. They piled pressure on Sanchez, shortening his leash and crafting a situation where the first few games of the 2012 season are do or die.
And at the same time, they ensured themselves that their "Plan B" if Sanchez falters is also insufficient — because Tebow, while talented and unique and everything else, is not a good quarterback.
It's the nightmare scenario — Sanchez stinks, the team panics, they put in Tebow, Tebow stinks, and the franchise slides back into rebuilding mode.
And that's why Sunday's Week 1 game against the Buffalo Bills is so vital.
The distance between stability and chaos for the Jets is unbelievably short. In order to avoid a meltdown, they need to establish a beachhead on the 2012 season.
If they can squeak past Buffalo, everyone calms down, and they buy themselves a couple of weeks without the Tebow situation bubbling to the surface.
But if they lose, things can spiral out of control quickly. After Buffalo, the Jets play away at Pittsburgh, away at Miami, home to San Francisco, and home to Houston.
They'll be big underdogs in three of those games. So they're looking at a catastrophic 1-4 start. The schedule gets super easy after that. But heads will already be rolling if they lose four out of their first five.
The win allowed New York to edge Dallas for the division title and propel the Giants into the playoffs, where a fourth-seeded Big Blue squad maintained its surge of momentum by upending conference front-runners Green Bay and San Francisco on the road to advance to Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis, then became the first 9-7 team in NFL history to capture the Lombardi Trophy by outlasting New England in a 21-17 thriller.
New York also topped the Cowboys by a 37-34 count in Dallas in mid-December, scoring a pair of touchdowns in the game's final 3 1/2 minutes to overcome a 12-point deficit
Had the Cowboys prevailed in either of those outings, they would have been the NFC East's playoff representative, and witnessing the Giants march to their second world championship in five seasons made the two losses even tougher to stomach.
"You've got to give them all the credit in the world," Dallas linebacker Sean Lee said of the Giants. "They're a very good team and they did a great job last year, but [the two losses] has been a big motivation for us.
The 2012 regular season picks up right where the last one left off, with a Wednesday night kick off game between those two bitter division rivals. For the Giants, the game is the first stop on what figures to be a difficult defense of a championship, when hungry opponents line up for a shot at temporary notoriety.
The Giants are ready, says Eli Manning. In fact, the Giants quarterback says that opening the season against Dallas is a great way to start. He elaborated in a Tuesday morning appearance on the Pan Patrick Show:
"We know our potential. We saw the level of play we played towards the end of the season when we won six straight games and I think we've had the right mindset. We worked this offseason like we were 7-7. We got tons of room of improvement and we do. Each player has taken that same attitude and taken it into the offseason to get better. We'll have a great week of preparation getting ready for the Cowboys knowing we gotta play our best football if we expect to win. I like starting the season with a division rival. Setting that intensity and setting that mentality and getting it right from week one."

Where do the Giants have the edge over the Cowboys?
Well, let's just say the Giants KNOW they can win close games and get the job done at crunch time. The Cowboys? Umm, well, one playoff win in 15 years answers that question.
