Houston Texans quarterback CJ Stroud has had one of the most impressive rookie seasons in recent memory, leading his team to a win over the Cleveland Browns in the first round of the playoffs to move on to face the Baltimore Ravens this weekend.
And after the game, Stroud gave an impressive interview where he first and foremost thanked Jesus Christ for the opportunity.
“First and foremost, I just want to give all glory and praise to my Lord and savior, Jesus Christ.”
Nobody believed in CJ Stroud at the beginning of the season.
He just won the first round of playoffs.

If their intentions were in fact what everybody seems to think they were, it’s a strange move that seemed to have backfired on them, drawing more attention to Stroud’s words than they would have if NBC had just posted the entire clip.
Why edit It lmao, does a little praise to god really kill people in the media like a cross to a vampire or something lmfaooo
NBC has yet to give any explanation for the editing, but if they do (which I doubt) I’m sure it will just be something like, “There was no intent, it was just editing the clip down for social media, blah blah blah.”
But it seems like that decision, whether inadvertent or not, may have backfired…
