New York Giants quarterback Tommy DeVito has been named one of the standout offensive players of the week by NBC Sports’ Peter King in his recent ‘Football Morning in America’ column. Despite being sacked nine times during the game, DeVito displayed decisiveness and confidence in his performance. With 18 completions on 26 attempts for 246 yards, three touchdown passes, and no interceptions, DeVito earned a passer rating of 137.7, the highest of any undrafted rookie since 1967.
Moreover, DeVito had a perfect passer rating of 158.3 on third down, demonstrating his ability to deliver in crucial situations. His two touchdown passes against the Commanders, combined with his performance in the previous week’s game against the Cowboys, made him the first Giants quarterback with at least five touchdowns in his first two NFL starts since 1950.
Peter Schrager from ‘Good Morning Football’ also recognized DeVito’s outstanding performance by awarding him with a game ball for his efforts in Week 11. With future games ahead, DeVito’s strong showing has put him in a position to continue making a positive impact for the Giants.
