No matter how big of a football fan you are, other events can sometimes get in the way. Life sadly doesn’t stop and start at the NFL’s convenience.
In the past, a scheduling conflict like a job or a party meant scrambling toward the nearest TV set or sneaking peeks at a text-based game center on your phone.
But no more! With last weekend’s arrival of the live NFL playoff streaming on the Yahoo Sports app, there are no longer any obstacles to watching every single second of the this season’s playoffs.
Some of our own football-mad Yahoo Sports employees and readers learned this the easy way during the divisional playoffs, seamlessly using the app to watch the great endings in Philadelphia, Minneapolis and Pittsburgh.
Here’s a sampling of where people used the app to watch the games:

Last Sunday, during halftime of my kids' flag football game, I showed them the livestream of Steelers-Jaguars as an example of how NOT to play defense. Tune in to the AFC/NFC championships this weekend on the @YahooSports app! #WatchAnywhere https://t.co/1Q0vfsSTrg

Pulled off a solid #lifehack this past weekend, watching the last quarter of the Steelers vs Jags tilt from a 4yo’s bday party. Gonna crush this Sunday’s play date while I #WatchAnywhere on @YahooSports. #NFLPlayoffs #ConferenceChampionship #Winning

And with both of Sunday’s games set to stream on the Yahoo Sports app, people are already making plans within their plans to watch.
Not sure if it's socially acceptable to watch Bortles take down Brady on my @yahoosports app during a baby class, but I can always have more kids. This may only happen once. #WatchAnywherehttps://t.co/P0qMAaElKW

Even if it’s with a cat.
