A Georgia high school recently refused to play a football game against a team with a female kicker because, apparently, it’s against the Bible. The East Atlanta Mustangs cited biblical verse to back their contention that girls aren’t meant to play football.

Maybe the fine folks at East Atlanta are onto something. If you really dig into the good book, it turns out it has plenty to say about football. Here are some other biblical passages you may have overlooked:

10. Jesus turning water into Gatorade

9. It’s harder for a camel to pass through a Cover 2 behind a zone blitz

8. Moses parting the Redskins’ D

7. Lock of the Week: Goliath

6. The multiplying of the fishes, loaves and Travis Henry

5. Render unto Goodell that which is Goodell’s

4. And on the seventh day, woman allowed man to rest by watching 11 hours of football

3. The Immaculate Reception (wait, what?)

2. The Christians were tossed to the Lions -- and went on to win 31-7

1. Noah’s flood: First recorded instance of “Making it rain”
