The Philadelphia Eagles are finally Super Bowl champions.
The NFC East is now the first division out of eight where every team has at least one Super Bowl championship win.
And Philly coach Doug Pederson had something magnificent to say after his team’s incredible win.
This year’s Super Bowl match-up was a thrilling and record-breaking game to watch.
Both the Eagles and the Patriots’ offense set the record for an unprecedented amount of yards between the two juggernauts.
Although golden child Tom Brady lost, he still threw for 505 yards and 3 touchdowns at 40-years-old.
But backup Eagles quarterback, Nick Foles, really stole the show—and won the game.
Like the old biblical story of David and Goliath, the underdog came away with a massive upset.
But when moments like these happen, many players are shy to mention their faith and give glory to God in the wake of victory.
Some players just don’t want to seem “polarizing.”
But that didn’t stop Eagles’ coach Doug Pederson from sharing with the world exactly how he feels about his faith in God.
“The Philadelphia Eagles took down the reigning champs Sunday with a thrilling 41-33 victory over New England.
Following the game, Eagles coach Doug Pederson proclaimed his faith and thanked Jesus Christ for the opportunity.
“How do you explain this, that nine years ago you’re coaching in high school and here you are with this trophy?” Dan Patrick asked.
Pederson replied, “I can only give the praise to my lord and savior Jesus Christ for giving me this opportunity and I’m going to tell you something: I’ve got the best players in the world.”

Many Christians are afraid to testify in church in front of believers let alone on a world stage. Thank God for the courage of Coach Doug Pederson. Amazing story. From coaching a small private high school to coaching in the pros and giving God the credit for it all! OORAH https://t.co/Q2KkPBEdGk

Super Bowl MVP, Nick Foles, also gave glory to God after the game as well.
