NBC Sports came under intense scrutiny Wednesday after reporters realized the network edited the post-game interview of Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud.
NBC Sports posted a short video with Stroud on their social media, on Saturday, following the Texan’s win against the Browns. But there’s a pretty big issue with the edit posted by NBC: it completely removed the part of the interview where Stroud dedicated his “glory and praise” to our Lord, Jesus Christ.

NBC literally removed the very first line of Stroud’s interview. “First and foremost, I just want to give all glory and praise to my Lord, Jesus Christ.” (LEARN MORE: ‘God Played Through Me’: RB Donovan Edwards On The First Win Of 2024)
Stroud references his faith in every single interview he does on the field, noted Outkick’s Bobby Burack. The player told Fox in 2023 that, “It’s what’s kept me grounded even through my season. Football has a lot of ups and downs, it has a lot of twists and turns, but at the end of the day, it’s all about your foundation. And something that’s set my foundation is my faith.”
“It’s something I’m not perfect in, but I try to work every day to be better, and I definitely think that’s what saved me. If it helps encourage anybody to help them in their lives, whatever they’re going through, then I’m all for it.”
Why Did NBC Edit Stroud’s Words?
While the network hasn’t said why they chose to edit Stroud, Burack suggested it’s because Jesus Christ, Faith, and Christianity are not pre-approved talking points. Instead, sports networks encourage players to discuss politics and race instead. (LEARN MORE: Hulk Hogan Shares Baptism On Social Media)
“There’s virtually no way NBC would have edited Stroud’s post-game interview had he used the moment after the game to shout out Black Lives Matter or trans rights,” Burack wrote. “But Stroud isn’t a political or Marxian advocate. Rather, he’s an advocate of Christianity.”
