NFL Live (stylized as NFL Live presented by FanDuel Sportsbook for sponsorship reasons) is an American National Football League (NFL) studio show, currently airing Monday through Friday at 4:00 p.m ET on sports cable channel ESPN, and rebroadcasts at 5:00 p.m. ET on ESPN2. Formerly known as NFL 2Night, the program is one of the few NFL-related studio programs to air during the week along with NFL Insiders. As such, NFL Live is not a highlight show, as Sunday and Monday game highlights are handled by the various other NFL studio shows, including NFL Primetime during the season. Unlike shows for other sports, NFL Live even runs throughout the entire offseason.

Since 2005, NFL Live has been presented in high definition on ESPN HD.

Beginning in 2011, NFL Live expanded to a full hour.

ESPN announced that beginning in August 2020, Laura Rutledge would assume hosting duties of the program, along with Keyshawn Johnson, Mina Kimes, Dan Orlovsky, and Marcus Spears becoming daily analysts.[1]
