Cheers for this. Is there a good place to watch highlights by game or by team, rather than by player?

I've never tried Gamepass - can you watch archived/non-live NFL Network shows, with the offseason pass? I think the time difference would make it difficult for me to watch much live content.

They're all in the listings now. Two at a time from 66 Packers to 09 Steelers, (though some seem to have the wrong descriptions).
