Stop the presses! The New York Giants have won a football game!
Despite being nearly 10-point road underdogs, the Giants managed to do what they always do on Sunday afternoon at FedEx Field — find a way to make the Washington Commanders look more futile than they are.
Led by undrafted rookie quarterback Tommy DeVito, who tossed three touchdowns in the game, the Giants took it to Washington from the jump. The defense tallied four sacks and Big Blue was +6 in turnover ratio.
It was a nice change of pace.
Here are the snap counts that contributed to the Giants’ most recent win.
Offensive snaps: 55
Defensive snaps: 81
Special teams snaps: 29
There wasn’t much rotation on offense in this game. Eight players took more than 90 percent of the snaps and 11 took more than 50 percent of the snaps. Notable, however, was the increased usage of wide receiver Sterling Shepard for the second week in a row. He seems to be getting his job back.
Defensively, four players took all 100 percent of the 81 snaps, which is entirely too much no matter what position they’re playing.
Linebacker Azeez Ojulari took 49 total snaps but you’d hardly know it as his impact was minimal.
