Never a doubt! How can you even begin to describe that win for the NY Giants over the Green Bay Packers on Monday night? It looked like the Packers were going to leave East Rutherford with a win after a Saquon Barkley fumble late in the fourth quarter, but Tommy DeVito had other ideas.

With the Packers up 22-21, DeVito led a memorable drive downfield and put Randy Bullock in position to win the game. Bullock had previously missed a field goal too, so a lot of people were worried sick he'd blow it. He didn't and the Giants are not only 5-8 on the year, but they're only one game back of the No. 7 seed in the NFC.

Give a ton of credit to Bullock for drilling this field goal, but my goodness, talk about Tommy Cutlets having some STONES on that final drive. For a rookie quarterback, hey, that stage might have been too big for him.

Imagine, he was down late in the fourth quarter, his team was feeling dejected after the Saquon fumble and everything was against him. Instead of going into panic mode, DeVito kept his cool and the final drive was highlighted by a perfect 32-yard pass to Wan'Dale Robinson.

You've got to give Robinson a ton of credit for his performance as well. Not only did he have that fantastic play with less than a minute on the clock, but his huge gain on a flea flicker, which he leaped into the air to grab, helped set up the touchdown to Isaiah Hodgins.

Giants fans had seen this movie before, but usually it ends with heartbreak and pain. This time around, people are going to have a smile on their face for the rest of the week thanks to DeVito, Bullock and others. Talk about a gutsy, gutsy win for this team.
