Jaguars vs Raiders Live Stream: How to Watch Online

Demarcus Robinson

Getty Demarcus Robinson is one of a few Raiders who should shine vs. the Jags in the Hall of Fame Game.

Getting a win won’t be at the forefront of the minds of the Jacksonville Jaguars and Las Vegas Raiders when they meet in the NFL’s annual Hall of Game on Thursday.

The contest is an appetizer ahead of preseason proper and, as a result, a tuneup for both of these rebuilding teams. Each will arrive at the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio with a new head coach and several new personnel.

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:

Jaguars vs Raiders Predictions

Jaguars Will Lead the Game in Sacks

The Jags already had a useful pass rush before they made Travon Walker the top pick in this year’s draft. Walker was highly disruptive for national champion Georgia last season and he should get a few snaps to showcase his talents at this level:

Pairing Walker with Josh Allen will give the Jaguars bookend pass-rushers opposing teams fear. Even if they don’t see the field much in Ohio, the Jags have the strength in depth to still make life difficult for Raiders QBs.

The team’s riches at defensive end showed up at training camp on Tuesday, August 2, per John Shipley of Sports Illustrated’s Jaguar Report: “There was one play in team drills where Dawuane Smoot, Arden Key and K’Lavon Chaisson all shared the field.”

With this many skilled quarterback hunters at their disposal, the Jaguars will have no problem wracking up five or six sacks in this game.


Jarrett Stidham Will Outperform Nick Mullens

Backing up Derek Carr may be a thankless task, but Jarrett Stidham and Nick Mullens are in direct competition for the job. Stidham played for McDaniels with the New England Patriots, while Mullens has started games for the San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns.

Stidham’s experience with the Pats will show up in this game. Knowledge of the playbook is the best way to offset limited preparation time, so Stidham will outperform Mullens.

McDaniels and the Raiders should hope Stidham looks the part after going to the trouble to trade for the 25-year-old earlier this offseason. Both Stidham and Mullens will be helped if a wideout other than Davante Adams of Hunter Renfrow emerges as a true playmaker.

There’s no shortage of candidates, with former Jaguar Keelan Cole and ex-Kansas City Chiefs speedster Demarcus Robinson already catching Carr’s eye, per Raiders Digital Reporter Levi Edwards:

Robinson showed he could stretch the field and work from the slot for the Chiefs, so he should win the vital niche role of third receiver. This is his first opportunity to show he merits the responsibility.

It’s also a chance for Stidham to build a rapport with his receivers and show McDaniels he can be trusted to step in for Carr if needed.


Raiders RB Best of Camp Standouts Likely to Shine

A game like this is perfect for an unheralded player who turned heads at training camp to continue to shine. There are some good candidates, but few as compelling as Raiders’ running back Zamir White.

The team’s fourth-round pick this year has earned praise for his recent performances from running backs coach Kennedy Polamalu, per Vic Tafur of The Athletic: “He’s tough, has good contact balance, and you can see the growth in a new system.”

A star at Georgia, just like Walker, White should get ample carries, despite the more experienced options behind starter Josh Jacobs. Depth includes former Patriot Brandon Bolden and holdover Kenyan Drake, but White can gain a step on both with a solid showing here.

The Jags have a potential standout of their own, in the shape of Jay Tufele. A former starter at USC, the second-year defensive tackle has flashed some impressive traits during camp, according to Demetrius Harvey of SB Nation’s Big Cat Country:

Despite Tufele and the rest of the Jags’ D-line, the Raiders ultimately will have more on offense than a team Pederson confirmed will be missing quarterback Trevor Lawrence and running back Travis Etienne, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport:

Third-stringers Jake Luton under center and Snoop Conner in the backfield will struggle to keep pace with the Raiders. There’ll still be enough room for fringe players like Stidham, Robinson, White and Tufele to make an impact in a game the Silver and Black should take by 10.
