DeVito was a part-time starter for Syracuse for three seasons before transferring to Illinois for his final season, in 2022. He made the Giants as an undrafted free agent and eventually rose to No. 3 on the depth chart before he got his chance to play in Week 8 after injuries to Jones and backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor.


GIVEMESPORT Key Stat: Since winning the Super Bowl following the 2011 season, the Giants have only had two winning seasons and have only made the playoffs twice, losing in the NFC Wild Card Round in 2016 and in the NFC Divisional Round in 2022.


DeVito lost his first start against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11 before reeling off three consecutive wins as a starter. When DeVito regressed and the Giants suffered back-to-back losses to the New Orleans Saints and Philadelphia Eagles, in which DeVito struggled with the basic aspects of the offense, he was benched in favor of Taylor.
