How Ya Doin’? Tommy Devito Leads Giants To Another Win

Hometown legend and Giants Quarterback Tommy Devito has led the Giants to another win on Monday Night Football against the Packers. It was announced by the Giants last week that despite second-string QB Tyrod Taylor coming off injury, Devito would remain the team’s starting QB with Daniel Jones still out. 

With a win on Monday Night, it seems Devito has survived another week and, barring an unexpected decision, will be the Giants QB in their next matchup. Now winning three of his four starts, Monday’s match might be Devito’s most convincing yet.

In the matchup, Devito went 17 of 21—passing for 158 yards, a touchdown and zero interceptions. Among those stats was a 26-yard sneak by Devito, evading three Packers in the process and getting the ball to the 1-yard line, eventually scoring a play later. 

The biggest story of the matchup was a game-winning drive that came in the final minutes with the Giants down 22-21 to the Packers. With less than two minutes to go, the Giants took possession of the ball at their own 25-yard line. Devito then led the Giants down a 57-yard drive, setting up Giants’ kicker Randy Bullock for a 37-yard field goal—propelling the Giants to a 24-22 victory over the Packers. 

With each start, Devito seems to be gaining confidence in his ability to be an NFL Quarterback. What started as a “hometown hero” type of story for the young star has turned into a genuine winning formula for the Giants, who have now won three straight. In doing so, Devito becomes just one of three undrafted Quarterbacks to win three of their first four starts.

Monday Night Football saw Devito’s best performance to date and with it, the Giants have a newfound confidence in the hometown kid.
