The NFL Network’s flagship show “NFL GameDay Morning” is heading overseas for the first time when the Philadelphia Eagles play the Jacksonville Jaguars at London’s Wembley Stadium.
Rich Eisen, Steve Mariucci, Kurt Warner and Michael Irvin will call the Oct. 28 game live from London in place of their usual home at the NFL Network’s Los Angeles studios.
In addition, “The Rich Eisen Show” namesake and ESPN veteran Eisen will handle play-by-play duties on an NFL regular season game for the first time in his 24-year broadcasting career. Melissa Stark and Peter Schrager will also be on hand to provide sideline reports.
“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 Week 8 matchup will see Carson Wentz and the reigning Super Bowl champions take on the Jaguars’ mighty defense, headed by defensive end Calais Campbell and cornerback Jalen Ramsey.
The game marks the final of the NFL’s three 2018 London Games and kicks off at 9:30 a.m. ET. on the NFL Network, as well as airing on local stations in Jacksonville and Philadelphia.
Coverage of Jaguars vs. Eagles begins at 7 a.m. 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.
Since 2007, the NFL has hosted international games every year, first in London and now with the addition of Mexico City. The Jaguars are no strangers to playing in England and have an agreement with Wembley Stadium through 2020, while the Eagles make their first visit to London.
This Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks take on the Oakland Raiders at Wembley, while the Tennessee Titans and Los Angeles Chargers head there Oct. 21.
Eisen, Mariucci, Warner and Irvin have teamed up on the Emmy-nominated “NFL GameDay Morning” since 2011.
Jaguars vs. Eagles will be streamed live through the NFL app on smartphones, tablets, PCs and connected TV devices. Access is available for NFL Network subscribers of participating TV providers.
