CANTON — The 2022 preseason is ready to begin in Canton, Ohio. It’s just going to require a bit of a delay.
With lightning in the area, the start of the 2022 Pro Football Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio, between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Las Vegas Raiders has been delayed due to inclement weather. Kickoff was originally scheduled for 8 p.m. ET. Per the NBC broadcast, the earliest start will now be 8:40 p.m. ET.
As the Jaguars and Raiders warmed up on the field at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium, a storm front rolled into Canton 30 minutes before kickoff Thursday. Rain began to fall around 7:40 p.m. ET, just minutes after the stadium’s scoreboards displayed a message warning of the arrival of severe weather, sending fans to seek shelter in the concourses.
Scattered thunderstorms intermittently dumped rain on parts of Northeast Ohio for most of the day leading up to the game. The latest thunderstorm has forced the NFL to push back the annual preseason opener.
Around The NFL will have more information as it becomes available.
