The Las Vegas Raiders will take on the Jacksonville Jaguars to kick off the 2022 NFL preseason in Canton, Ohio. 

The Hall of Fame Game will take place Thursday, Aug. 4 at 8 p.m. on NBC at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium, marking the start of the league's 103rd season.

The Raiders will be making their fourth appearance at the game while the Jaguars are going for their second.
