In his recent ‘Football Morning in America’ column, NBC Sports’ Peter King highlighted several standout players from Week 11. Among them was Tommy DeVito, the quarterback for the New York Giants, who earned the title of offensive player of the week.
Despite being sacked nine times during the game, DeVito displayed remarkable decisiveness and confidence in his performance. He completed 18 out of 26 attempts for a total of 246 yards, with three touchdown passes and no interceptions. This impressive performance gave him a passer rating of 137.7, which is the highest ever achieved by an undrafted rookie since 1967.
DeVito also had a perfect passer rating of 158.3 on third down, demonstrating his ability to deliver in critical situations. His two touchdown passes against the Commanders, combined with his previous week’s performance 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 took notice of DeVito’s outstanding performance and awarded him with a game ball for Week 11. With more games to come, DeVito’s strong showing has put him in a prime position to continue making a positive impact for the Giants.
