Some of the top quarterbacks in the NFL these days all happen to share one thing in common – they call Jesus Christ their Savior and Lord, and they’re not ashamed to talk about it.
On any given Sunday, you can catch these incredible athletes tearing up the football field. But they can also be quite eloquent when talking about their Christian faith and what matters most in life.
Among these top quarterbacks are the two leaders of the 2018 Super Bowl-winning Philadelphia Eagles, Nick Foles and Carson Wentz, and the newly crowned #1 NFL passer, Drew Brees.
Here are some great quotes from 10 faith-filled quarterbacks:
Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints
“I live for God, for the faith that I have in Him, and knowing the sacrifices that Jesus Christ made on the cross for me, and just feeling like it’s in God’s hands and all I have to do is just give it my best, commit the rest to Him, and everything else is taken care of. That takes a weight off my shoulders,” Brees once told CBN.
Derek Carr, Oakland Raiders
“I have a very strong faith in God. He is the reason I play football. He has given me this special talent and I want to use it to glorify Him. I am grateful for the opportunity to further His kingdom by sharing my faith on and off the football field. At any moment, any second, my football career could be taken away but my faith and relationship with God will never be taken from me,” Carr says on his website. “Being a Quarterback is what I do but it does not define who I am. I am first and foremost a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ.”
