Jacksonville Jaguars preview
The franchise is looking to turn the page after a tumultuous season in 2021 with Urban Meyer as head coach. The Jaguars hired Super Bowl winning head coach Doug Pederson to come in and stabilize the organization, and his first opportunity to show how he plans to run the team will come on Thursday.
It has already been announced that key starters Trevor Lawrence and Travis Etienne will not participate in the Hall of Fame game. Pederson has been impressed with the way Lawrence has played in training camp so far. Jacksonville fans were hoping to get their first look at Etienne in a real game, but he will not be available due to an illness. The running back missed the entire 2021 season due to a foot injury.
The Jaguars have said that quarterback Jake Luton will start the preseason opener. He played in three games for the team in 2020 season, throwing two touchdowns to six interceptions in that time. It will be interesting to see if he is joined on the field by wide receiver Christian Kirk and tight end Evan Engram. Both players were added to the roster to help improve the talent on the offensive side of the ball.
Las Vegas Raiders preview
Similar to their opponent, the Raiders are also moving forward in 2022 under new leadership. The front office decided not to retain interim head coach Rich Bisaccia, and hired longtime New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels instead. This will be the second head coaching job for McDaniels, as he previously served in that capacity for the Denver Broncos from 2009-2010.
Las Vegas has not confirmed whether or not their starters will appear against Jacksonville. If they do participate, it will likely only be for one series. The team drastically reshaped their offense in the offseason with the acquisition of two-time All-Pro Davante Adams. He has consistently been amongst the league leaders in receiving for the last several years, including the 2020 season where he led the NFL in receiving touchdowns. Adams and Las Vegas starting quarterback Derek Carr were teammates in college at Fresno State University.
There has been a lot of discussion regarding how Las Vegas’ backfield usage will shake out. The team seems to like Georgia running back Zamir White, who they selected in the fourth round of the 2022 NFL draft. White should get a chance to play in the Hall of Fame game.
