Seahawks Star Tyler Lockett Writes ‘Letter to God’ After Dynamite Game Helps Team to Overtime Win

With five touchdown passes and 378 yards through the air, Russell Wilson was the undoubted MVP of the Seattle Seahawks’ 40-34 overtime victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at CenturyLink Field on Sunday.

Tyler Lockett’s performance at receiver was a close second.

Lockett hauled in 152 yards and two touchdowns on an impressive 13 catches.

The big game was no fluke event for the fifth-year receiver. In nine games this year, he already has more receptions than he’s had any other season (59) along with 767 yards and six touchdowns.

After the dramatic overtime win, Lockett, whose Twitter bio simply states “CHRISTIAN,” was ready to deflect any praise.

“I just give God all the glory. I know it’s all about making the best out of all your opportunities, and I just want to be able to stretch myself,” he told Deion Sanders on NFL Network.

Lockett spoke again about the sentiment on Instagram, posting a short “Letter to God.”

Lockett has been an unwavering Christian since he was a child and often talks about his faith publicly.

In September, he said in an interview with NBC Sports: “When you have a faith in God, you don’t worry about your life. What’s the point in serving somebody who created you and has a plan for you but then you never trust that the plan is going to prevail?”

Lockett’s Seahawks (7-2) now are ready to dive into a titanic “Monday Night Football” matchup with the San Francisco 49ers, the NFL’s last undefeated team at 8-0.
