Question of the Week: Picks, Deflategate, and Winning

It’s been a busy week for sports and the media with the Seahawks-Patriots upcoming Super Bowl XLIX. It began with Russell Wilson’s explanation of his win: “That’s God setting it up, to make it so dramatic, so rewarding, so special.” And it continues with Brady and Belichick’s responses to Deflategate, with Brady playing defense.

My questions for the week is this: Does God favor sports teams or athletes who pray? Does winning show God’s favor? Or is this all just part of the business?
