Tommy DeVito Shines with 3 TD Passes as Giants Dominate CommandersNovember 20, 2023
LANDOVER, Md. — The Giants won despite allowing an insane nine sacks to Washington’s defense, which Kayvon Thibodeaux commented on after a win at FedEx Field.
The turnover-prone Commanders handed the ball over six times to the Giants, who were in desperate need of a victory after a difficult stretch that included a pair of humiliating losses on the road.
Rookie quarterback Tommy DeVito threw three touchdown passes, including two to Saquon Barkley, to secure a 31-19 win.
The victory provided hope for a team that had only managed one win in their previous eight games. It was a much-needed confidence boost for the squad, which will look to build upon this triumph to end the season on a high note.
Getting two takeaways on the Commanders’ first two offensive possessions generated momentum. A rookie safety Owens recovered Byron Pringle’s fumble forced by McCloud and Dane Belton.
DeVito’s 18-of-26 passing performance for 246 yards and three touchdowns provided enough offensive spark, and the Giants escaped with their third win of the year.
Thibodeaux credited the team’s comeback to their resilience after a difficult stretch of losses and comments from disappointed players. The defense stepped up to the plate, and the young players made some giant plays to turn the game in favor of the team from New York.
DeVito completed 18-of-26 passes for 246 yards and three touchdowns; he played smoothly and confidently to secure his first NFL victory. His performance was a comforting sign for the offense and defense alike.
