Peter King names Tommy DeVito, Isaiah Simmons among Players of the Week
After the Giants put together a complete game in their Week 11 win over the Commanders, several players were recognized for their individual performances.
In his weekly ‘Football Morning in America’ column, NBC Sports’ Peter King named Tommy DeVito among the offensive players of the week
“The Jersey kid was sacked nine times in his second start in the NFL Sunday, but played decisively and confidently for an undrafted player who had a pretty undistinguished career at Syracuse and Illinois,” wrote King. “At FedEx Field, DeVito, who grew up 11 miles from MetLife Stadium, completed 18 of 26 passes for 246 yards, with three touchdown passes and no picks for a 137.7 rating. “Not a lot of people get this opportunity,” DeVito said. He’ll get more, beginning next Sunday against Bill Belichick and the Patriots.”
DeVito’s 137.7 passer rating in Week 11 was the highest of any undrafted rookie since 1967.
Meanwhile, he had a perfect passer rating of 158.3 on third down as he completed seven of eight passes for 113 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.
Between his three touchdown passes against the Commanders and his two against the Cowboys last week, DeVito became the first Giants quarterback with at least five in his first two NFL starts since 1950.
‘Good Morning Football’ host Peter Schrager also awarded the rookie quarterback with his Week 11 game ball.
