How to Watch Jags vs Raiders Hall of Fame Game Online for Free

Jarrett Stidham and Nick Mullens

Getty Backup QBs Jarrett Stidham and Nick Mullens will try to impress for the Raiders vs. the Jaguars.

Trevor Lawrence won’t start the first official game of the Doug Pederson era when the Jacksonville Jaguars face the Las Vegas Raiders on Thursday night. It’s the annual NFL Hall of Game, the curtain-raiser for preseason, and Lawrence won’t play a snap.

It’s a similar story for the Raiders, who are unlikely to give Derek Carr many snaps under center.

Still, football is back, and we’re all going to be watching.

The game (8 p.m. ET) will be televised on NBC.

If you don’t have cable, the game will also stream live on Peacock Premium, but that option isn’t free, so here’s a look at all the different ways you can watch a live stream of the Jaguars vs Raiders, with the first three options all offering a free trial:

Hall of Fame Game 2022 Preview

Edge-Rushers Highlight First Depth Charts

Walker, a stud for the national champion Georgia Bulldogs, is expected to be a do-all game-wrecker for the Jags. His first attempts to make a splash at this level will come from the SAM linebacker spot, according to the depth chart relayed by Demetrius Harvey of Sports Illustrated’s All Gators:

Walker can play multiple positions along the front seven, but Jones will do his damage from the edges. The Raiders are transitioning to a 3-4 scheme under new defensive coordinator Patrick Graham, and Jones is key to the switch.

Jones is a lock on the depth chart, but other positions will remain fluid. Especially right tackle, where former draft flop Alex Leatherwood is slated to start at the moment, per Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter Vincent Bonsignore:

The members of the depth chart most significant for this game are the backup quarterbacks.


Unheralded QBs In Focus

Lawrence’s absence means the Jags can focus on the passers who are set to backup 2021’s first-overall draft pick. Ordinarily, that would mean extended action for de facto No. 2 C.J. Beathard, but the former San Francisco 49ers deputy passer is out with a groin injury.

No Beathard means third-stringer Jake Luton will start, and the 26-year-old is already relishing the prospect, per John Oehser of the team’s official site: “I just want to go out there and execute. I think this camp we’ve done a lot of good things. We’ll go out and put our best foot forward. I want to move the ball around, get the ball in my guys’ hands and help the offense be in the best position to just execute.”

One player Luton won’t be getting the ball to is running back Travis Etienne. Like Lawrence, the second-year pro will sit this one out, according to Pederson:

Snoop Conner will take the reins in the backfield after thriving during training camp, per John Shipley of Sports Illustrated’s Jaguar Report: “Conner had a terrific practice on Monday, breaking off several long runs, picking up blitzes in pass-protection and making a few nice runs.”

The Raiders and McDaniels will also field reserve quarterbacks. Stidham and Mullens are both in the mix to be the next man up after Carr this season.

If there’s an inside track, Stidham should have it, thanks to his time with McDaniels as members of the New England Patriots. Yet, Stidham’s hopes could be dashed by the more experienced Mullens, who has been a starter for both the 49ers and Cleveland Browns.

Mullens last won a game he started against the Los Angeles Rams back in November, 2020, but he’s been impressing at this year’s camp, according to Raiders Digital Reporter Levi Edwards:

Neither McDaniels nor Pederson should expect much from their patchwork teams this early in preseason. The focus is more about fitness and building play speed, but any standouts here will cement their chances of securing precious roster spots.
