After the Seahawks beat the Packers in last season’s playoffs, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson shared his belief that God had a hand in the team’s victory.
Wilson, who has never been shy about discussing his belief that God takes an active role in determining the outcome of football games, said his four interceptions in the game were part of a divine plan to make Seattle’s ultimate win “so dramatic, so rewarding, so special.” Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said he didn’t think anyone upstairs cared about more than the people involved in the game, but he may have reconsidered.
Either that or he may have decided to give a different answer as a way to tweak the Seahawks quarterback after Rodgers was on the right side of a comeback win on Sunday night. Rodgers revisited the question of divine interference in football after the 27-17 win came to an end.
“And then getting help from God. I think God was a Packers fan tonight, so he was taking care of us,” Rodgers said, via ESPN.com.
Rodgers was not chugging nanobubble-rich water while making the comment, in case you were wondering.
With running back Eddie Lacy joining Jordy Nelson on the sideline with injuries, Sunday night certainly provided Rodgers and Green Bay with a test. It was one that the Packers passed, whether or not anyone was pulling the strings from up above.
