1. It wasn't pretty, but the Giants deserved this win

As has been the case for their other wins, the Giants didn't dominate by any means, but they were able to make the plays needed late to capture another close victory. DeVito was far from perfect, but he was able to make some great throws and he took care of the football, not tossing any interceptions. That's big for the youngster.

Also, we've got to give some love to Isaiah Hodgins. He's been pretty much a ghost this year, but he was able to record the lone TD of the day for the Giants. On a short DeVito throw, Hodgins created enough seperation to get by a Patriots defensive back and then he would not be denied for his second score of the fall.

That was a monster play from Hodgins, no doubt about that. With the victory, the Giants are now 4-8 on the season and they've posted back-to-back victories for the first time since 2022. Next up for Brian Daboll and Co. is a Monday Night Football meeting with the Green Bay Packers in Week 14 - NY will be on a BYE next week.
