If you were to tell me that the NY Giants would be on a three-game winning streak and have a chance at making the playoffs after the 2-8 start, I wouldn't have believed it. However, with the 5-8 record, Big Blue fans can keep the postseason dreams alive.

After starting quarterback Daniel Jones went down with a torn ACL injury in Week 9, head coach Brian Daboll had to call on a new signal caller to run the offense. Enter Tommy DeVito, who after a tough early stretch is now looking quite sharp with the ball in his hands.

Since No. 15 has taken the field for the Giants, he has provided the team with some life after many fans thought the team should tank for a good draft pick and start over. DeVito quickly silenced those fans, becoming the first undrafted rookie quarterback in NFL history to win three straight starts without throwing an interception. In games that he has started, the G-Men are 3-1 and 2-0 at MetLife Stadium, which happens to be a couple of miles away from where DeVito grew up and still lives with his family. DeVito has proven he belongs back with the team in 2023. Here are five plays that fans should keep in mind for the rest of the fall and winter:

5. DeVito makes three Packers miss on 26-yard run

Entering this past week, we knew DeVito had a great arm after displaying his throwing capabilities over the past two games against the Commanders and Patriots; however, Giants fans learned about the rookie quarterback's mobility on MNF when he showed off some fancy footwork and made a couple of Packers defensive players miss to set up multiple Giants scoring opportunities.

On Monday night, the undrafted rookie quarterback rushed for 71 yards on 10 attempts, including a 26-yard run in the third quarter to put the Giants on the one-yard line, setting up a Saquon Barkley rushing touchdown to take the lead.

DeVito averaged 7.1 yards per rush and showed his ability to drive down the field, allowing the Giants to win this 24-22 thriller over the Packers. DeVito's mobility is definitely an underrated part of his game.
