The NFL has arrived in Houston for the first game of the Wild Card Weekend and 2020 playoffs! And today you’ll get to see the Buffalo Bills face off against the Houston Texans at the NRG Stadium. We’re here to make sure you catch every minute of today’s game – see how to get a Bills vs Texans live stream regardless of where in the world you are and it’s even free to watch in the US thanks to a simple stream.
This is a game you won’t want to miss as today’s winner remains in the playoffs and advances to the Divisional Round while the losing team will be eliminated. Yep, this is yet another step on the way to Super Bowl 2020.
Buffalo is currently the No.5 seed in the AFC playoffs and the team is going into today’s game 10-6 after losing their last two games of the regular season to the Patriots in week 16 and to the Jets last Sunday. The last time the Bills took on the Texans was in October of 2018 and during that meeting, the Texans won 20-13. A win today would be huge for Buffalo as the team hasn’t advanced to the Divisional Round since 1995 and they haven’t been to the Super Bowl since 1993. Can quarterback Josh Allen lead the Bills to victory in his first trip to the playoffs?
Houston holds the No. 4 seed in the AFC playoffs and just like the Bills, the team ended the regular season 10-6. The Texans suffered a 35-14 defeat last Sunday to the Titans with only Duke Johnson and AJ McCarron scoring touchdowns in the first and third quarter. Last season Houston also made it to the Wild Card round but the team lost 7-21 to the Colts. Texans fans will be excited to know that defensive end JJ Watt is returning to play in today’s game after he tore his left pectoral earlier this season during week 8’s game against the Raiders. Will the Texans be able to defeat the Bills and advance to the Divisional Round?
Whether you’re a Bills fan in Buffalo, a Texans fan in Houston or just want to tune in to see all the action at Wild Card Weekend – we’ll show you how to get a Bills vs Texans live stream regardless of where in the world you are so you don’t miss a single touchdown.

Watch the Bills vs Texans game online from outside your country (or in a blackout)
Watching this game from the US, UK, Canada or Australia? We'll tell you how to catch the NFL game further down in the article.
But if you're somewhere else in the world – or if a coverage blackout is stopping you from watching in the US – then there's still a way you can live stream the Bills vs Texans online (and you don't even have to slum it with a grainy, illegal feed you've found on Reddit). Instead you could use a VPN – or Virtual Private Network – to change the IP address to one in a different state or country which does have a stream. And it's not even hard to do.

Can I watch with the NFL Game Pass?
Well it's a no and a yes. The NFL Game Pass in the US will only let you watch a replay of the game, but not the live action.
Interestingly, it's a different story with an International NFL Game Pass where all post season games are being shown absolutely live…shame you can't officially get access to that if you and your laptop's IP address is in the US.
