God is with the Seattle Seahawks, according to wide receiver Tyler Lockett, who’s revealing how much his team worshiped God after fighting their way to the NFC Divisional playoff game.

The Seahawks did more than just win the NFC wildcard game against the Minnesota Vikings last Sunday, they did so after trailing 9-0 leading into the last quarter. Somehow, quarterback Russell Wilson missed a snap from center Patrick Lewis and got the ball back to complete a 35-yard pass to Lockett.

Two plays later, Wilson threw the ball to receiver Doug Baldwin on third-and-10, which resulted in the Seahawks nabbing a 10-9 victory in the game that would keep them alive in the playoffs.

“I never thought in a million years he’d shank it to the left, but God was on our side,” Lockett said after the game, according to ESPN. “You saw people out there, praising [God]. People were jumping, [yelling] ‘Hallelujah!’ on the ground, with their face on the ground. Nobody has ever seen anything like that.”

The receiver took to Twitter to further witness about how his team worshipped following their win.

“God was definitely on our side! If yaw (sic) could’ve only seen our sideline praising and worshiping God! An amazing experience! #NeverQuit,” Lockett tweeted.
