Texans QB CJ Stroud Praises God After Unbelievable Win

By Movieguide® Contributor

Houston Texans quarterback CJ Stroud threw a game-winning touchdown and immediately gave all the glory to God.

“First and foremost, man, I got to give all the glory and praise to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,” Stroud said. “These last couple weeks have 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, He gives you opportunities and it’s what you do with it. So, He gave me this opportunity to come back in that two-minute drill and we run great routes, got great time management with the coaches, and we go score touchdowns. It’s really big for us.”

Many fans commented on the post with their encouragement to Stroud.

“Love it when these athletes recognize that Jesus is everything in this world. He’s our Lord and Savior,” one fan said.

“I love it man. Standing with God and our Lord and Savior is never a bad thing. We are nothing without God,” another person commented.

On Sunday, Stroud threw the 15-yard touchdown that sealed the win for his team.

Stroud said one thing to his offensive line: “If you give me a little bit of time, I will make them pay.”

“The rookie quarterback stunned the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, leading a six-play, 70-yard touchdown drive in 40 seconds to secure a 39-37 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He hit Tank Dell for a 15-yard touchdown with six seconds remaining to cap a frantic final quarter that saw the Texans lean on a running back to kick a field goal,” Yahoo Sports reported.

Tank Dell, Stroud’s teammate, said, “C.J. is different. He told us to stay poised and be ready, and he executed. He didn’t panic. But we knew that out of him, and that’s what he do.”

Buccaneers quarterback Baker Mayfield said of Stroud, “I’ll tell you what—C.J. Stroud doesn’t look like a rookie to me. That guy, he’s so impressive. Looks like a polished NFL quarterback. So, hats off to him. He played extremely, extremely well today.”

Movieguide® previously reported on Stroud:

Despite week two’s loss to the Indianapolis Colts, Stroud glorified God first.

“First and foremost, I want to give all glory and praise to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,” he stated in a post-game press conference. “Had a hard week, man, just trying to fight my tail off just to be able to play because my shoulder was hurting me. But at the end of the day, I wanted to be out there for my guys. I wanted to play.”

In week 2, Stroud played through the entire game with a shoulder injury, even earning the most yards for any quarterback that week (384 yards). Despite the injury, he doesn’t want pity from anyone.

“I don’t want anybody to feel bad for me, but the odds have been stacked against me since I’ve been a kid,” Stroud said in the press conference. “And I think God has put a special plan in my life, and I think that He’s not done with me yet…I have a lot more, not even just football, but a lot more life to live to give to people.”
