It looks like there isn't going to be any kind of quarterback controversy in East Rutherford after all - well, not for the NY Giants at least. We can't speak for the Jets. For the past week, a lot of fans have been wondering who Brian Daboll will rock with as his starter against the Packers.
Tyrod Taylor was expected to be the guy once Daniel Jones went down, but he was forced to be placed on Injured Reserve due to a serious rib injury against the Jets. Now that he's healthy, though, he's still going to have the football out of his hands.
Tommy DeVito named the Giants starter for Week 14 vs. Green Bay
That's because Tommy DeVito will be leading the offense out in primetime against the Packers next Monday night. On Tuesday afternoon, Daboll met with the media and he announced that DeVito, AKA Tommy Cutlets, will the starter against Green Bay. Daboll said the rookie earned the right to keep playing, which we can't argue with.
DeVito will now be making his fourth start of the year, hoping to earn his third win. DeVito is 2-1, suffering a loss against the Cowboys, but taking down the Commanders and Patriots in back-to-back games. DeVito was brilliant in the win over Washington, throwing for 246 yards and three touchdowns. He followed that up with 191 yards and one TD vs. New England.
Taylor has more experience than DeVito, but Tommy D has been playing solid football in recent weeks and he's playing for a chance to be QB2 moving forward. With Taylor likely set to leave this offseason, it doesn't make a ton of sense to keep on playing him in what feels like a lost season.
The Giants have an outside chance of making the postseason, but Daboll and Co. need to keep seeing what kind of potential DeVito has. This feels like the right call.
