NFL Live (stylized as NFL Live presented by Autotrader for sponsorship reasons) is a National Football League studio show, currently airing Monday through Friday at 1:30 p.m ET ESPN. Formerly known as NFL 2Night, the program is one of the only 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 ESPNHD.
Beginning in 2011, NFL Live expanded to a full hour.
- NFL Live Wired: A segment at the beginning of the show detailing the top stories and breaking news from around the National Football League. This segment was discontinued in the summer of 2007. It eventually was re-added as an unnamed segment where the news stories of the day are listed in chronological order of their release or when an item hit the transaction wire (e.g. "10:33 a.m.: the Cincinnati Bengals placed (player name) on injured reserve").

- Hurry-Up Offense: A segment at the end of each show, in which analysts are given a certain amount of time to discuss various topics.
