The Houston Texans face the Oakland Raiders at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City in Week 11 on Monday Night Football. Here’s all you need to watch online.
For the first time in NFL history, the league is heading to Mexico City for Monday Night Football in Week 11. And the fans south of the United States border get a high-quality AFC matchup to host. The Oakland Raiders can take sole possession of the AFC West lead with a win. Meanwhile, the Houston Texans would extend their lead in the AFC South with a victory. They’ll clash at Estadio Azteca to cap off the week.
Derek Carr and the Raiders were circled by many as a potential dark horse in 2016 and they’ve lived up to the billing. Coming out of their bye week, they’ve won seven of the nine games they’ve played and have seemingly improved each week. Carr, Amari Cooper, and Michael Crabtree behind Kelechi Osemele and one of the best offensive lines in football have been full of firepower all season. What’s more, though, Khalil Mack and the defense have taken steps forward after early season struggles.
The Texans on the other hand have been a mixed bag. Whitney Mercilus and the defense have been formidable even without J.J. Watt. However, Brock Osweiler and the defense have left a lot to be desired. The high-priced free-agent signing has been abysmal. Consequently, the likes of Lamar Miller and DeAndre Hopkins have suffered. They can’t afford that against the high-octane Oakland offense on Monday.
Monday Night Football, as always, will be broadcast on ESPN. Therefore, you can stream the game online using the WatchESPN service. Access the stream online or through the ESPN app using a cable or satellite subscription to log in.

Though their records are similar and the environment unfamiliar to both teams, the Raiders should win this one running away. Houston has looked fraudulent all season and Oakland has the talent to expose that. Expect the Silver and Black to take back sole possession of first-place in the AFC West.
