NBC catches heat for cutting C.J. Stroud thanking Jesus in social media clip
NBC wasn’t having itself a religious experience.
Texans rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud thanked Jesus in a live postgame interview after Houston’s 45-14 wild-card round win Saturday over the Browns but when the network’s “Sunday Night Football” on NBC account on X posted the clip shortly after, that part was edited out.
First of all, I just want to give all glory and praise to my lord and savior, Jesus Christ, Stroud told Kathryn Tappen on the live broadcast.
I mean, its been amazing being in this city for as short as Ive been but the love that Ive got. Ive really just been doing it for Houston, man. The people back home, Im blessed enough to be in the position that Im in and blessed enough to be playing at a high level right now. We gotta just keep it going, but Im super blessed.
Whether it was an intentional cut or a misguided attempt at shortening a video for social media is unknown, but the discrepancy did not go unnoticed.
“It seems like being religious and praying to a god is no longer allowed,” aggregation account @_MLFootball wrote on X.

“What was the first words out of his mouth from the interview?” Another X user wrote in response to @SNFonNBC’s post. “Mustve been a glitch”
Stroud, 22, threw for 274 yards and three touchdowns in the win.
APThe rookie who has “Follower of Christ” in all his social media bios is not shy about discussing his faith.
Its whats kept me grounded even through my season, he told Fox New Digital last year. Football has a lot of ups and downs, it has a lot of twists and turns, but at the end of the day, its all about your foundation. And something thats set my foundation is my faith.
Its something Im not perfect in, but I try to work every day to be better, and I definitely think thats what saved me. If it helps encouraging anybody to help them in their lives, whatever theyre going through, then Im all for it.
Stroud and Houston take on the Ravens on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. EST, a game set to be aired on ESPN.
