- These 4 NFL players keep their focus on faith.
Outspoken Patriots Team Captain Matthew Slater offers this advice to everyone caught up in the hype of the big game:
Faith and Keeping Perspective
“This is not life and death. This is not the biggest thing that we’ll do,” he says. “The biggest and most important decision we’ll ever make in our lives is what we do with the knowledge of Jesus Christ. And if you don’t know the answer to that question it can be challenging at times. But I think for people that look at this game as the end all, be all, it’s not! It’s a game. We’re thankful to be here, we’re thankful for the opportunity. We love what we do but we have to keep perspective on the greater good!”
In 2002, the up-and-coming New England Patriots stunned the Los Angeles Rams in the Super Bowl. That win marked the beginning of the New England dynasty. Seventeen years later, the storylines are reversed. The Patriots are the powerhouse while the Rams are young and hungry as they face off in Atlanta for Super Bowl LIII.
