Philadelphia Eagles’ AJ Brown: ‘I’m playing for God’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Wide receiver AJ Brown helped the Philadelphia Eagles start this season undefeated, and the football player credits God for his success.

Brown has been playing for the Eagles for just under a year after being traded by the Tennessee Titans.

“I play for God,” Brown said before this season. “I don’t play for man’s expectations. I play this game because God gave me the ability to play this game, and to do my best is to do my due diligence to Him.

One of the most impressive wins of the season, according to Brown, was against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

“Our backs were against the wall,” he shared. Just counterattack. Fighting, and that’s what this league is about. It’s a very good team. … It was our best win so far this season.

Brown frequently shares his faith on Instagram and draws a black cross under each eye during many games.

“Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. “ALL THINGS,” he captioned a post. “New beginnings start tonight!”

“I am a Christian first and foremost,” said the footballer. “When I go out on the pitch, I want to say thank you for the blessing, for everything, because I don’t have to do this. I can do this. So I always wear a cross.
