In his post-game interview with CBS’ Evan Washburn following Houston’s dramatic come-from-behind victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Stroud was asked about his game-winning touchdown pass to Tank Dell that capped off a 75-yard drive and gave the Texans a 39-37 victory over the Bucs.
But Stroud wouldn’t talk about his exploits or that of his teammates without first giving praise to his “Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
“First and foremost, man, I’ve got to give all glory and praise to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, man,” Stroud said.
“These last couple weeks, I’ve been up and down. I’ve been going through a lot on and off the field. But when you give your life to the Lord, man, he gives you opportunities, and it’s what you do with it.”
Stroud added, “I do it for the glory of God, man.”
