Denver Bronco’s Russell Wilson is still praising God after a heartbreaking loss against his former team, the Seattle Seahawks.
On Monday night, Russell Wilson and his current team experienced a heartbreaking loss against the Seahawks. The All-Pro quarterback was able to help Denver rise from a 17-10 deficit to 17-16, a one-point difference.
When kicker Brandon McManus lined up for a last-second 64-yard field goal, his kick sailed wide left. It would have been a game-winning kick for Denver. Seattle won the game 17-16. It was Russell’s first game against his former team. Instead of feeling discouraged by how the game turned out, Russell remained a positive attitude.
“It just didn’t go our way,” he said, smiling. “But guess what? There are 16 more games to go. … I’m looking forward to what we can do.”
He even praised God in a post-game interview with Sports Spectrum.
“First of all, I think for me, I’m just grateful God’s given me the chance to play this game – to sit here in front of you guys and say it’s all for His glory, and His glory alone, it’s not for anybody else. I play for an audience of One. And that’s just for Him.”
The 33-year-old pro football player also expressed his admiration for his former team.
“I have some amazing teammates on the other side of that field that I love to death and gave everything I had to them,” he said, referencing his former Seattle teammates. “They gave everything they had to me, and God brought me somewhere else. I’m here in Denver, I’m excited about where we’re going. I’m just grateful. I give the glory to God because He’s given me the gift of playing this game.”
