This week on NFL GameDay Morning: Chicago QB Jay Cutler Sits Down for Interview with Marshall Faulk

Sunday is NFL GameDay on NFL Network, starting at 9 a.m. with NFL GameDay Morning. Host Rich Eisen joins Steve Mariucci, Marshall Faulk, Michael Irvin and Warren Sapp for the first and most comprehensive pregame show every Sunday. Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler sits down for an interview with Marshall Faulk to discuss winning the NFC North and advancing to the playoffs for the first time in his career.

The crew looks back at the Philadelphia Eagles' improbable win over the New York Giants last week at the New Meadowlands Stadium. Trailing 31-10 in the fourth quarter, the Eagles scored 28 consecutive points in the final 7:28 of the game to come from behind to defeat the Giants 38-31. Philadelphia's DeSean Jackson scored on a 65-yard punt return as time expired - the only game-winning punt return touchdown with no time remaining in NFL history.

Also, with the Giants and Packers each coming off difficult losses from the previous week, which team will bounce back in a game full of playoff implications? And which team - the Jets or the Bears - will emerge victorious in a battle of 10-4 teams?

» Michael Lombardi reports from Kansas City for Titans-Chiefs

» Albert Breer reports from Green Bay for Giants-Packers
