NBC faces backlash as Texans' CJ Stroud's Jesus mention cut from social media clip

Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud was ecstatic after guiding the team to a 45-14 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Saturday, with 274 passing yards and three touchdown passes.

Stroud left the field and spoke with Kathryn Tappen of NBC. Before discussing his team's performance, he praised Jesus.

"First and foremost, I just want to give all glory to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ," he stated

before discussing Houston and the support he has had from Texans fans in less than a year as quarterback.

 The moment was marred during the course of the week when NBC attempted to cut away that portion of his speech from the video posted on X.

The "Sunday Night Football on NBC" X account tweeted a video of Stroud speaking with Tappen, but it began with Stroud praising the city.

"I mean, it's been amazing being in this city for a short as I've been but the love that I've got," he is quoted as saying in the "Sunday Night Football" segment. 

. "I've actually only been doing this for Houston, man. People back home, I consider myself fortunate to be in my current situation
