Admittedly, the history (and future) of broadcast rights for NFL games is puzzling. What is now offered via NFL+ was previously offered through an exclusive agreement between Verizon and the NFL. The deal between Verizon and the NFL allowed you to stream NFL games to your iPhone using Yahoo! Mathematical application.
The deal between Verizon and the NFL expired, and the NFL took what was once included in that agreement and split it up to a direct-to-consumer streaming service.

Apple + NFL Sunday Ticket
What does this mean for the NFL Sunday Ticket, the package that Apple is said to be planning to spend billions of dollars on?
Once again, NFL Sunday Ticket and mobile access to NFL games have coexisted for years. The mobile broadcast rights were previously owned by Verizon, but the NFL now holds those rights to NFL+.
The NFL Sunday Ticket, on the other hand, is an out-of-market sports package that broadcasts regular season NFL matches every week. This allows you to watch any NFL game out of the market, while NFL+ only offers local and great NFL games (and only on your smartphone or tablet).
As it stands now, Apple is believed to be a front-runner for the rights to the NFL Sunday Ticket; The current NFL deal with DirecTV expires after the 2022-2023 season. report from New York times This weekend indicated that while Google has made a bid for the rights to the NFL Sunday Ticket, Apple is “considering the number one contestant” for now.
Apple has made winning the bundle a priority. Apple CEO Tim Cook has met with influential league officials and team owners such as Jerry Jones, who owns the Dallas Cowboys, and the Kraft family, which owns the New England Patriots, according to three people familiar with the operation. Apple declined to comment.
