The New Orleans Saints say they couldn't lose their game at the weekend after receiving an accidental blessing from the Pope.
The NFL team claimed their fifth win of the season in the NFC South, beating the Jacksonville Jaguars 13-6 yesterday.
The team says they were blessed and highly favoured throughout the game because of this tweet from Pope Francis earlier in the day.
Today we give thanks to the Lord for our new #Saints. They walked by faith and now we invoke their intercession.

Now we're not sure who is behind the Pope's twitter account, but they accidentally used the hashtag which New Orelans fans use to tweet about the Saints.
The Pontiff even used the hashtag which includes the team's logo!

Regardless, it means the New Orleans are now on a 4 game win streak.
Maybe they'll be hoping for more tweets from the man in Rome in the weeks to come!
