‘All the Glory Belongs to God’: The Faith of the Super Bowl-Winning Philadelphia Eagles
Do faith and football go together? For players on the Philadelphia Eagles, the answer is a resounding “yes.”
The Eagles won their first Super Bowl 41-33 over the New England Patriots in a hard-fought game Sunday night in Minneapolis.
“All glory to God,” MVP Quarterback Nick Foles said right after the win.
I felt calm. We have such a great group of guys, such a great coaching staff,” Foles said. “We’re very blessed.”
Just nine years ago, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was coaching high school. Now he’s a Super Bowl champion.
“I can only give the praise to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for giving me this opportunity,” Pederson said Sunday night.
Touchdown-scoring Wide Receiver Zach Ertz echoed the same sentiment.
“Glory to God first and foremost,” Ertz said.
And despite being sidelined by a season-ending injury, Eagles franchise QB Carson Wentz threw all his support to Foles, and all the glory to God.
