Canton – Preliminary preparations for the 2022 season are ready to begin in Canton, Ohio. It will require a little 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 the Las Vegas Raiders has been delayed due to bad weather. Kickoff, which was originally scheduled for 8 p.m. ET, is now expected to be 8:40 p.m. ET, according to an NBC broadcast.
As Jaguars and Raiders heated up on the field at the Tom Benson Hall of Fame, a storm rolled into Canton 30 minutes before kick-off on Thursday. The rain began around 7:40 p.m. ET, just minutes after stadium scoreboards displayed a message warning of the arrival of severe weather, sending fans seeking shelter at the rendezvous.
Scattered thunderstorms dumped intermittent rain over parts of northeastern Ohio for most of the day before the game. A recent thunderstorm forced the NFL to postpone its annual pre-season opening.
