I'm not in the NEP market but I use NLGamepass. https://www.nflgamepass.com/en
It's as close to Sunday Ticket as you can get.
NFL GamePass does not allow streaming of "live" games in the U.S . So I just make them think I'm in a country that does
I pay $20 a year for a smart DNS Proxy ( in my case I just choose the UK but there's about 400 I can choose from) we enjoy streaming British TV services, so it's a sunk cost anyway. I prefer using a DNS because there's no impact on internet speed like you get with a VPN. It takes seconds to set up. And you can't argue with $20 a year.
I have the NFL Gamepass App on mutiple Apple TVs dotted around the house. Once you sign up for Gamepass you can pay for the entire season, which is around $200 or in my case I pay weekly which is around $20 ( that's a rough conversion because my credit card is charged in pounds) . So if I know the Pats are on national TV I don't pay for that week. Or if I'm out of the U.S and won't get a chance to watch the game live I don't bother. I'll quite happily pay $20 to sit at home and watch Pats games when not on National TV. Probably just paying $200 for the entire season is a better deal since the Pats this season aren't exactly prime time.
I think there's a free week trial of Gamepass. And there's a free trial of the SmartDNS proxy service if you want to try it out. But remember, when setting up the Gamepass account make sure you've manipulated things to show you're IP is not in the U.S. And as I said, I love the DNS service because it's pretty seamless.
