2. The rookie QB is making the guys around him better
DeVito has been embraced by the team, there's no doubt about that. They respect him and they believe in him. Head coach Brian Daboll has liked how he’s developed and progressed, making that quite clear after Sunday's upset win.
Saquon Barkley has hung tight with DeVito and even defended him when many people were mocking him after the Jets game. On Sunday, Barkley’s faith in him paid off, as he had his best game of the season catching two touchdown passes from DeVito. Barkley had 140 total yards in Week 11 and countless head-turning plays.
As we've previously mentioned, DeVito isn't a QB1 by any means, but he's finding ways to get this offense to move the chains consistently. His long touchdown pass to Darius Slayton was a thing of beauty, as was his first TD pass to Barkley (seen above). DeVito throwing for 246 yards and three scores was wild. Just wait till Darren Waller returns later this campaign too.
