The New York Giants’ 31-19 win over the Washington Commanders snapped a three-game losing streak to improve the Giants record to 3-8. Here are some thoughts to come from that game.
Jersey Strong. Given the Giants’ injury situation at quarterback, many thought the team might immediately turn to a veteran to at least try to salvage its season rather than place the season’s fate in the hands of undrafted rookie Tommy DeVito
But the scrappy New Jersey native, while nowhere close to being a finished product, has rewarded the coaching staff’s faith in him by delivering two starting campaigns in which he’s now 1-1 and where, in the loss, he wasn’t the lone reason for the team coming up short.
“I was asked a fair amount of questions about bringing in some older guys and thought this guy was a good, young player to work with,” head coach Brian Daboll said after the Giants defeated the Washington Commanders 31-19.
“Again, he’s played in two and a half games, so there’s a lot of work that needs to be done. But he certainly has put the work in.
When he was out on the look team at practice, you could see some of his instinctiveness even though he was a show team quarterback in terms of throwing the ball on time, anticipation.
And so, thought he’d be a good player to work with. There are a lot of things he did well and many things we can help him improve on.
