John Harbaugh Trusts God’s Plan After AFC Championship Loss

By Movieguide® Contributor

The Baltimore Ravens were the favorite going into the AFC championship game on Sunday, but their season came to an end after losing to the Kansas City Chiefs 10-17.

After the game, the Ravens’ head coach, John Harbaugh, began the press conference with Jeremiah 29:11:

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Harbaugh declared that the verse is “where I’m hanging my hat at this point,” saying he would not linger on the loss but trust in the Lord and his plan for Harbaugh’s life.

In the post-game press conference, he added, “I was proud of them [the team]. I’m proud of the season that they had. I feel like it was a team that had a lot of challenges. I don’t think it was a team that was too highly touted coming into the season by the pundits and the prognosticators and all that. I think they proved a lot of people wrong all year.”

During the AFC Championship game, quarterback Lamar Jackson and his offensive line struggled to connect all day.

With three turnovers in the team’s loss to the Chiefs, Jackson said after the game, “It’s crazy. We had some opportunities out there. We’ve just got to take advantage of them. We scored one touchdown, and that’s not like us.”

“They played the game basically perfect,” he added later. “I felt like if we wouldn’t have turned the ball over, we definitely would have had a shot. We definitely would have came out with a win, but they did a great job not turning the ball over and putting points on the board.”

Jackson was right. “The Ravens hadn’t been held under 20 points since Week 5 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Even when they got off to a sluggish start last week in the divisional playoffs, they turned it on in the second half to pull away,” the Baltimore Ravens reported.

Movieguide® recently reported on the Harbaugh and the Ravens:

On Saturday, the Ravens faced the Houston Texans. The Texans came out hot in the beginning, but in the second half, Baltimore took the game in a 34-10 win over Houston.

After the game, Harbaugh credited God for the win.

“There was something that was sent to me before the game,” Harbaugh told the press. “It just is meaningful to me so I am going to share it with you. Because I think it’s the right thing to do. It’s a verse.”

The coach then read 1 Chronicles 29:11, which says, “Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.

“So, there’s an amazing spirit on this team. And I just want to kind of give honor and glory where it’s due,” he added.
