2. QB Tommy DeVito

While the UDFA out of Illinois has proved nearly everyone wrong, he still has a ways to go in order to prove that he can be a consistent backup for the Giants moving forward. He's played decently, but there are still aspects of Tommy DeVito's game that need to improve in the final three games.

Tyrod Taylor's contract is set to expire this offseason, so if the Giants can let the veteran walk and keep DeVito around to be the new backup, they could save a good bit of money. While he's likely earned that spot with his play thus far, he can secure this job with some improved play in the final stages of this season.

In seven games, DeVito has completed 64 percent of his passes for 1,032 yards, eight touchdowns, and three interceptions. While his pocket awareness and overall consistency needs some work, DeVito has done a more than fine job stepping in for the injured Taylor and Daniel Jones, even winning three games in a row.

We finally saw some real cracks in DeVito's game against the Saints last week, so it will be interesting to see if he bounces back or not in the following matchups. If he does, expect Tommy Cutlets to earn his job as the Giants' backup in 2024. If not, things could get very interesting moving forward.
