The start to the NFL playoffs kicks off this weekend. The Washington Redskins are one of the teams in the Super Bowl hunt, facing the Green Bay Packers this Sunday.
The Redskins continue their unlikely winning season thanks to the footwork of young running back Alfred Morris.
“The Redskins are my favorite team so I got a chuckle. I said, ‘God you’ve got a sense of humor,’ I never thought the Redskins would be the team that called me on draft day,” he said.
“My prayer was, ‘God I don’t know what’s going to happen with this draft situation, but just place me exactly where I need to be so I can be used,’ and He did just that,” Morris said.
He proved the skeptics wrong after helping the team win their division during his rookie reason, and again this year, finishing the season 9-7 after beating the rival Dallas Cowboys last Sunday. It’s a dream come true for Morris.
“It just gives me goosebumps. This is the NFL and I get to play!” he exclaimed.
