The Las Vegas Raiders face the Jacksonville Jaguars in the first preseason game of the new NFL campaign, and it's a fitting curtain-raiser, with each franchise embarking upon a hopeful new era. Josh McDaniels takes charge of the Silver and Black for the first time, while Doug Pederson finally has the chance to exorcise the ghosts of Urban Meyer's short-lived Jags tenure. Read on as we explain how to get a 2022 NFL Hall of Fame Game live stream and watch the Raiders vs Jaguars online from anywhere - including FREE coverage in some places.

Last season was tumultuous, tragic, and so very nearly brilliant for Raiders fans, who mourned the death of legendary former coach John Madden, saw Jon Gruden, Henry Ruggs, Nate Hobbs and Damon Arnette disgrace themselves, and Derek Carr step up as a truly brilliant leader. He's unlikely to feature tonight, with preseason often used as an opportunity to test players on the fringes of the team.
Pederson, who won the Super Bowl with the Eagles in 2018, has brought a much-needed feel-good factor to the Jaguars, who are coming off a dismal 3-14 record. Jake Luton is likely to deputise for Trevor Lawrence at the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium, and Jags fans will be hoping to see some creative spark against a team that struggled to stop the pass throughout last season.
