WATCH: Rookie Texans Quarterback Shares His Faith In Emotional Post-Game Interview - 'To The Glory Of God'

On Saturday, the Houston Texans faced off against the Indianapolis Colts, resulting in a hard-fought 23-19 victory for the Texans led by rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud to get into the playoffs. The 22-year-old quarterback was successful in throwing two touchdowns for a total of 264 passing yards. Following the game, the Texans QB spoke with an ESPN reporter to thank God for his victory.

"Welcome to the playoffs. How does that sound to you," the ESPN reporter asked. Stroud quickly responded by tearfully explaining that he couldn't do anything but "thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."

"I put a lot of work in. My team has. Everybody counted us out from the start, so it is just special to see the city of Houston coming up again, and I'm just blessed enough to be the vessel that Christ picked to lead this great franchise. So I could do nothing but just thank the Lord," he continued. The quarterback then proceeded to explain that he had written "to the glory of God," triple 7s, a cross, Proverbs 3:5-6, and various other abbreviations.

The reporter then asked Stroud what he thought he showed everyone who was watching, to which C.J. responded, "I think it's not me. It's my teammates. My linemen, my receivers running great routes, my running backs doing their job, our tight ends, our defense being really great. It's not just me out there. But I think tonight we showed the world what the Texans can do, and we are going to continue to do that." 

"He went on to explain that "God won't put nothing on me that I can't handle. I feel like who I am as a person, the work I know I put in, that's plenty," he explained. "I put my blood, sweat, and tears into this, and it is just really cool to see the fruits of your labor come out. I am just super blessed."

Following the game, Stroud led over a dozen of his fellow players and coaching staff in a prayer on the field. While the number of Americans who openly share their faith and attend church has declined in recent decades, it is heartwarming to see such a public display of faith from a young and successful quarterback in the NFL.
