Four wins in their last five games mean the Commanders have a chance to rise above .500 for the first time since the opening weekend of the season. It would mark a remarkable turnaround for Ron Rivera's men who were way off the pace when Carson Wentz was calling the shots. Central to their red-hot form has been Taylor Heinicke, who's surely made the starting QB spot his own. Time to nail it down. It's a cool day in Houston but the rain seems to be holding off. Read on as we explain how to watch a Commanders vs Texans live stream online from anywhere today.

Heinicke certainly has the backing of Terry McLaurin, whose numbers have skyrocketed since the 29-year-old took the reins four weeks ago. Victories over struggling Packers and Colts teams weren't entirely unexpected, but taking down the previously unbeaten Eagles after pushing the 8-1 Vikings all the way shows how far they've come.

Lovie Smith was dealt a cursed hand at the start of the campaign, and it's of little surprise that only two teams have put fewer points on the board than the Texans this term. That victory over the Jags six weeks ago stands alone as the high point of their season.  

A Commanders victory feels like the only feasible result, but one must never underestimate Washington's ability to shoot itself in the foot. Closing in on the Cowboys in the NFC East and right on the shoulder of the 49ers for the No.7 seed in the playoffs – a slip-up today would be par for the course for Commanders fans. 

Can Heinicke keep rolling? Follow our guide on how to watch a Commanders vs Texans live stream wherever you are.

How to watch Commanders vs Texans from outside your country

If you've mismatched a holiday or you're away on business and you want to watch your country's coverage from abroad, then you'll need to use a VPN. This will help you dial in to a location back in your home country to avoid geo-blocks and regain access to the content and services you already pay for back home.

A VPN is generally perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location when the big game is on.
