Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles wore a small tribute to Jesus during game
Many thought the Philadelphia Eagles’ season was over when Carson Wentz was lost for the season in Week 14.
But Nick Foles took over and led the Eagles to four wins in his five starts, including two playoff victories that got Philadelphia to the Super Bowl.
Now Foles has shocked the world, throwing for 373 yards and three touchdowns as his team stunned the favored New England Patriots and Tom Brady.
Foles, who is an outspoken Christian like many of his teammates, chose to wear a special wristband during the game to use his platform for the Gospel.

The six-year veteran was clearly seen wearing a “WWJD” bracelet on his right wrist.
The slogan stands for “What would Jesus do?” — a question many believers ask themselves in trying to act out their faith.

Foles’ wristband drew comparisons to Tim Tebow’s “John 3:16” eyeblack he wore during the NCAA football championship game.
The Super Bowl is the most watched TV spectacle in the country. The eight most-watched shows of all time are all Super Bowls, with the No. 1 program being Super Bowl XLIX in 2015 when the Patriots beat the Seahawks 28-24. That game was viewed by 114.4 million people.
That means that Foles just potentially exposed more than 100 million people across the country to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Foles, who outlined that he wanted to become a pastor after his playing days are over, gave the Eagles a huge moral boost in the locker room and on the field as he helped dethrone the Patriots dynasty for the time being.
The Eagles, being the under dog, stormed into Minneapolis and beat the Patriots 41-33.
Congrats to Nick Foles and the rest of his teammates on giving the Eagles first Super Bowl win ever and their first NFL championship since 1960.
