Rich Eisen, Steve Mariucci, Kurt Warner and Michael Irvin to Call Week 8

Eagles vs. Jaguars from Historic Wembley Stadium

Special Editions of 'Good Morning Football' Air Live from London October 22-27

 

On Sunday, October 28, NFL GameDay Morning personalities Rich Eisen, Steve Mariucci, Kurt Warner and Michael Irvin will make the jump from NFL Network's Los Angeles studios to the field at London's Wembley Stadium to call the Week 8 matchup between the defending Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles and the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The game is the final of the NFL's three 2018 London Games, kicking off at 9:30 AM ET and airing to a national audience exclusively on NFL Network. Eagles vs. Jaguars will also be available on local broadcast stations in Philadelphia (WPVI) and Jacksonville (WFOX). Several digital streaming options are also available to fans, with the full listing available at NFL.com/watch.

Eisen, Mariucci, Warner and Irvin have paired together on the Emmy-nominated NFL GameDay Morning since 2011, providing viewers with expert analysis, entertaining commentary and up-to-the-minute reports prior to kick off on Sundays.

"NFL GameDay Morning has some of the most knowledgeable voices covering the NFL, and their chemistry resonates with fans every Sunday," said Mark Quenzel, NFL Senior Vice President of Programming & Production. "Bringing this team, their experience and unique perspective together for a live national game telecast between Jacksonville and Philadelphia in London was an opportunity we wanted to take advantage of."

As the three-time Emmy-nominated host of NFL GameDay Morning and the Emmy-nominated Rich Eisen Show, Eisen will handle play-by-play duties on a NFL regular season game for the first time in his 24-year broadcasting career. He has previously called a live game telecast of the Senior Bowl for NFL Network.

"After a decade-and-a-half of planting new broadcast flags for the NFL Network, this one may be the most thrilling of all," Eisen said. "I can't wait to get to Wembley to start the call so I'm going to use this press release to remind everyone that the yellow line is unofficial."

The matchup will also be the first game analyst assignment for Mariucci. Irvin has previously served as an analyst on three games for Westwood One's NFL radio coverage. Additionally, Warner had a previous stint in the booth on a pair of NFL games on NBC, and is currently a color analyst for Westwood One's live radio coverage of Monday Night Football and the Super Bowl. 

Joining the broadcast team are Melissa Stark and Peter Schrager, who will provide news from the sidelines. Stark will be making her first appearance as a sideline reporter since 2002 as a member of ABC's Monday Night Football broadcast team. In addition to co-hosting NFL Network's Good Morning Football, Schrager has served as a NFL sideline reporter for FOX Sports since 2016.

Coverage of Eagles vs. Jaguars begins at 7:00 AM ET on NFL Network with NFL GameDay Kickoff, hosted by Kay Adams alongside Steve Smith Sr., Reggie Bush and Kyle Brandt, live from Wembley Stadium. Halftime and postgame coverage will originate from NFL Films in Mt. Laurel, NJ and feature Colleen Wolfe, Michael Robinson and Mike Garafolo.

In advance of the game, additional NFL Network programming airing on location from London include:

  • Special editions of Good Morning Football with Adams, Brandt, Schrager and Nate Burleson live from London Monday through Friday at 7:00 AM ET, and Saturday at 9:00 AM ET
