A lot of people like watching sporting events from home, especially when it comes to National Football League games. It's a pretty big deal!

And it sounds like we'll finally know whether or not that will become a reality pretty soon.

Apple is in talks with the National Football League regarding streaming rights, reports Reuters. Citing two sources familiar with the situation, the outlet says the iPhone-maker is among a group of tech firms pursuing the opportunity to live-stream 3 NFL games next season.
