Indianapolis Colts quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and Washington Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson step away from the field and behind the broadcasting desk during their teams’ bye weeks, joining the NFL on FOX this Sunday.
Hasselbeck joins play-by-play announcer Chris Myers, analyst Ronde Barber and sideline reporter Jennifer Hale in the booth Sunday as the Arizona Cardinals host the St. Louis Rams at 4:25 PM ET. Hasselbeck teamed with Myers earlier this year for AFTERNOON HUDDLE, a daily show on FOX Sports 1 originating from Radio Row during Super Bowl Week. Currently a backup quarterback with the Colts, Hasselbeck has played in the NFL since 1998 after being drafted by the Green Bay Packers. He spent a decade with the Seattle Seahawks, where he was a three-time Pro Bowler and led the team to the 2005 NFC Championship.
Jackson teams up with Curt Menefee, Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, Michael Strahan and Jimmy Johnson on Sunday as a member of the FOX NFL SUNDAY pregame crew. A wide receiver and return specialist in his first year with the Redskins, Jackson spent the previous six seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles where he was selected to three Pro Bowls and was named a first-team All-Pro in 2009.
The NFL’s No. 1 pregame show, FOX NFL SUNDAY begins at 12:00 PM ET and gets fans ready for the biggest games of the day, including this weekend’s doubleheader on FOX. A three-game regionalized schedule kicks off at 1:00 PM ET, followed by AMERICA’S GAME OF THE WEEK – the New York Giants at Seattle Seahawks – and the St. Louis Rams at Arizona Cardinals at 4:25 PM ET.
