How big are the Cowboys—especially these 9–1 Cowboys—down in Dallas? A local church actually showed the game as Sunday mass was wrapping up on a giant screen.

The Friendship-West Baptist Church in Dallas projected the team’s 27–17 win over the Ravens for all to see, leaving nearly the entire place thinking about Ezekiel Elliott instead of Ezekiel 3:10. The viewing party did not take place during mass, as many had feared, but rather as mass was turning into an event afterwards.

The church serves the public in all sorts of ways.
