3. Both TD passes to Saquon Barkley in win over the Commanders
It's pretty clear that over the last few weeks, Giants running back Saquon Barkley has thrived off the opportunities he is getting from his new quarterback, and it seems the chemistry on and off the field between the two has grown quickly. The Barkley-DeVito duo was certainly out in the Giants' 31-19 victory over the Washington Commanders in Week 11.
The victory over the Commanders allowed DeVito to earn his first career win as the Giants' starting quarterback. A significant reason why the G-Men were successful was the help of their star running back. While DeVito was lights out, throwing for 246 yards and three touchdowns, Saquon had two of those touchdowns and was simply unstoppable for the Commanders' defense.
The first touchdown was on the Giants' third drive of the game and it was a 24-yard pass to Barkley to give Big Blue a 7-0 lead and open up the scoring. It was an impressive play for Saquon to make, as he was able to hold on to the ball in double coverage and made the catch on the way down - he managed to keep both feet in bounds for an early score.
The second Barkley touchdown came at the beginning of the fourth quarter, and it was a five-yard pass from DeVito to give the Giants a 21-12 lead. The play was set up by a Barkley 36-yard run at the end of the third quarter and a Daniel Bellinger 26-yard reception to open up the fourth. The second touchdown was just as impressive as Barkley's first and provided the Giants with insurance points to hold onto the lead towards the end of the game.
