In his latest column, NBC Sports’ Peter King recognized several players who stood out during Week 11 of the NFL season. Among them was Tommy DeVito, the quarterback for the New York Giants. Despite being sacked nine times during the game, DeVito displayed decisiveness and confidence in his performance. He completed 18 of 26 passes for 246 yards, three touchdowns, and no interceptions, earning him a passer rating of 137.7, the highest for an undrafted rookie since 1967.
Furthermore, 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.
DeVito’s outstanding performance caught the attention of ‘Good Morning Football’ host Peter Schrager, who awarded 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.
