Iron E-Sports News was given an exclusive interview with the 266th pope of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis (or Jorge Mario Bergoglio to his mom) to get his take on the current state of the NFL as well as a few thoughts on last year’s season.
Pope Francis, a well respected sports gambler, said he had his money on Aaron Rodgers early on in the season.
“Aaron is blessed,” the Francis revealed. “He’s the only one who consistently relies on the holy ‘hail mary’ pass. Other quarterbacks neglect it to their own detriment.”
“You may not know this, but I also always put a little money down for the Browns because God roots for the underdog.”
When asked about how God handles conflicting prayers from the various teams, Pope Francis had some surprising remarks: “God plays favorites. And I know you’re going to bring up New England but, come on, we just have to trust that He knows what He’s doing.”
“I’ll end with this: keep your eye on Dallas. Yeah, we–I mean He–never did like Romo, but now things are looking up for Dallas (pun intended).”
