An NFL coach won a huge playoff game and then quoted this Bible verse
The NFL has been mired in political controversy for several years now.
But the league isn’t a total woke wasteland.
And an NFL coach won a huge playoff game and then quoted this Bible verse.
The Baltimore Ravens – behind MVP favorite quarterback Lamar Jackson – thrashed the Houston Texans 34-10 in the AFC Divisional Playoff round.
Baltimore will now host the AFC Championship Game this Sunday.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh began his postgame press conference by quoting Biblical scripture reciting 1 Chronicles 29: 11-13.
“Greatness, power, glory, victory, and honor belong to you because everything in heaven and on earth belongs to you. The kingdom belongs to you, Lord,” Harbaugh stated.

Harbaugh making a public display of his faith came one week after NBC edited out Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud praising God following a 45-14 route of the Cleveland Browns in the AFC Wildcard round.

Faith is a pillar of the Harbaugh family.
John’s brother Jim Harbaugh just won the national championship in college football leading the University of Michigan to the title.
Jim Harbaugh spoke at the March for Life less than two weeks after winning the College Football Playoff.

Abortion is an issue near and dear to Jim Harbaugh’s heart as he told the Daily Caller at the march.
“You know, we all talk about human rights. There’s really no rights that are important unless you have the right to life,” Harbaugh stated. “This is a great day for a march. It’s a great day for the sanctity of life, and [it is] football weather. Let’s make it a great day.”
On a weekend when the NFL announced it planned to divide America by playing both the Star-Spangled Banner and the black national anthem at the Super Bowl, the Harbaughs were a refreshing reminder that the woke mob hasn’t completely taken over the pro football.
