The Jaguars vs Raiders live stream kickoffs tonight at Canton, Ohio’s historic Tom Benson HOF Stadium. The game marks the first time each franchise will be led onto the field by their new head coaches.
The 2017 Super Bowl Champion coach Doug Pederson will take the reigns for the Jags, while the Raiders will be led by long-time Patriots' offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels in this NFL live stream.

This game will not only be debut but also a homecoming for McDaniels. The 46-year-old grew up in the Canton area and even played high school football for McKinley High School when Benson stadium was known as Fawcett Stadium.
“For me personally, going there is maybe a little bit different than some other people because of where I grew up” McDaniels said at a press conference last week. “It was a great place to be a young boy [who] loved football.”
This will play out like your typical preseason game. Some starters will play a few snaps, most will not. Pederson announced this week starting quarterback and last year’s number one overall pick, Trevor Lawrence will not see any playing time Thursday night, nor will his back-up CJ Beathard. Jake Luton will start under center for the Jags. Also, running back Travis Etienne will sit this one out.
Though highly unlikely, all of Raider Nation is eager to see their prized offseason acquisition five-time pro bowler Devanta Adams take his first in-game reps with Vegas. The Raiders' Chandler Jones, and the Jags' Brandon Scherff and Christian Kirk are three other big acquisitions people would love to see on the field.
According to Action Network (opens in new tab), the Raiders are the current favorite at -115, while the Jaguars are at -105, the game has an Over/Under of 30.5.
The Hall of Fame Game will be on NBC, which is available on the $35 per month Sling TV (opens in new tab) Blue — and Sling is free until August 20 (billing beginning August 21) for new subscribers. The $50 per month Sling Orange + Blue package has NBC affiliates for this game, as well as local FOX affiliates plus ESPN.
