On Sunday night, will God be influencing the outcome of Super Bowl XLVII? Our new survey shows that nearly 3-in-10 (27%) Americans believe that God plays a role in determining which team wins a sporting event, while a majority (53%) agree that God rewards athletes who have faith with good health and success. Will this pay off for the Ravens’ Ray Lewis, who frequently talks about his Christian faith, or the 49ers’ Colin Kaepernick, who has Bible verses tattooed on his arms? Learn more about Americans’ perspectives on God’s influence on sports in this week’s graphic.
