In his latest ‘Football Morning in America’ column, NBC Sports journalist Peter King highlighted several standout players during Week 11. Among the offensive players named by King was New York Giants quarterback, Tommy DeVito.
Despite being sacked nine times during the game, DeVito showcased determination and confidence in his performance. With 18 catches on 26 attempts for 246 yards, three touchdown passes, and no interceptions, DeVito earned a 137.7 passer rating, the highest of any undrafted rookie since 1967. Additionally, DeVito had a perfect 158.3 passer rating on third downs, demonstrating his ability to deliver in key situations.
His two touchdown passes against the Commanders combined with his performance in last 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. Furthermore, “Good Morning Football” host Peter Schrager recognized DeVito’s outstanding performance by awarding him a game ball for Week 11. With future games ahead of him, DeVito’s strong performance has positioned him to make an even more significant impact for the Giants.
