Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp told reporters Sunday night God had revealed him being named Super Bowl MVP in a vision.
Kupp gave all the glory to God after he made several key plays, including the game-winning touchdown, to secure a 23-20 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.
“I don’t feel deserving of this,” Kupp said. “God is just so good. I’m just so thankful for the guys I get to be around, for the coaches, for my family.”
Speaking to the media after the big game and holding his 1-year-old Cypress, Kupp said God gave him a vision of the special moment three years ago when he was unable to play in the Super Bowl due to an injury.
“In 2019, we walked off the field that last time after losing to the Patriots; I wasn’t able to be a part of that thing,” Kupp said. “But I don’t know what it was, there was just this vision God revealed to me that we were going to come back, we were going to be part of a Super Bowl, we were going to win it, and somehow I was going to walk off the field as the MVP of the game.
“I shared that with my wife because I couldn’t tell anyone else obviously what that was, but from the moment this postseason started, there was just a belief every game that it was just written already. It was written already and I just got to play free knowing that, I got to play from victory, not for victory. I got to play in a place where I was validated not from anything that happened on the field but because of my worth in God and my Father.”
Sports Spectrum reports after he was asked how that vision was revealed Kupp said, “It was just walking off the field. It was as clear as day. I walked off the field, I turned around before walking back through the tunnel and it just hit me. It was as clear as I can see you guys here right now. Pretty incredible.”
