Justin Simmons is off to yet another strong start for the Denver Broncos. The All-Pro safety has seven solo tackles and one interception in helping the Broncos get off to a 3-0 start.

He had the opportunity to talk about his team’s unblemished start to the season following Sunday’s 26-0 win over the New York Jets, doing an on-field interview with Spero Dedes of CBS Sports.

But his mind was focused elsewhere, as he shared on Instagram following the game, and what resulted was a powerful moment between him and his teammate, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

“After every game, home or away, a group of players from both teams come together to say a prayer at midfield. It’s my favorite thing about game day on Sunday. Giving thanks and praise to God win or lose,” he said. “Well, after the game was over, I was asked to do an interview talking about the big win. Once the interview was over I immediately looked behind me towards the 50 yard line, nervous that I had missed the prayer, and I did. However, Teddy was there waiting and told me ‘J! I got you man..I know you didn’t wanna miss this’ and started praying.

“There is a reason God brings people in your life depending on what ‘season’ of life you’re in. Teddy didn’t know, I never told him, but I needed that prayer.”
