We reported this week that a new survey shows 3-in-10 Americans say God plays a role in outcomes of sports events.
A majority (53 percent) of Americans also agree that God rewards athletes who have faith with good health and success, compared to 42 percent who disagree.
So the question, perhaps, is who has the most faithful team? Baltimore or San Francisco?
Who do you think God wants to win the Superbowl?
