Rookie QB C.J. Stroud Praises 'Lord and Savior Jesus Christ' on National TV After Historic Performance

A breakout rookie NFL quarterback is highlighting his faith in Jesus after leading a comeback win.

C.J. Stroud of the Houston Texans spoke of his religion in a post-game interview with CBS News on Sunday.

Stroud had just capped off a game-winning 75-yard touchdown drive to defeat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at home 39-37.

However, the 2023 second-overall draft pick pivoted to faith in response to Evan Washburn’s question about the game-winning touchdown pass to Tank Dell.

“First and foremost man, I’ve got to give all glory and praise to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, man,” Stroud made it clear.

“These last couple weeks, I’ve been up and down. I’ve been going through a lot on and off the field.”

“But when you give your life to the Lord, man, he gives you opportunities, and it’s what you do with it.”

“I do it for the glory of God, man.”

Stroud went on to cite the route-running of his receivers and the time management of the Texans’ coaching staff as instrumental to the comeback victory.

The high-scoring game saw Stroud attain 470 passing yards — a hefty sum for a rookie quarterback.

The yardage was enough to break the NFL single-game rookie record.

The win adds another distinction to a rookie season that has impressed even the biggest believers in Stroud’s talent.

Stroud has thrown 14 touchdown passes — to go with only one interception, according to ESPN.

The Ohio State standout also discussed his experiences coping with his father’s incarceration after the game, according to the Associated Press.
