With most of the Week 11 schedule in the books let’s take a look at some of the biggest winners around the NFL.
Tommy DeVito, QB, New York Giants. The most stunning performance of the day on Sunday came from the Giants’ backup quarterback. DeVito bounced back from a miserable performance in Dallas a week ago and led the Giants to a 31-19 win in Washington.
DeVito played the game of his life in throwing all over a terrible Commanders defense, finishing the day with 246 yards and three touchdown passes. With Daniel Jones sidelined for the remainder of the season DeVito is going to have an opportunity to audition for both the Giants and other NFL teams when it comes to his future, and Sunday was a great showing.
Micah Parsons, DL, Dallas Cowboys. It was another dominant performance by the Cowboys on Sunday as they were no match for a Carolina team that might be the worst in the NFL. One of the big standout stars for the Cowboys was Parsons as he continued his push for NFL Defensive Player of the Year consideration. He finished with 6.5 tackles, 2.5 sacks, two tackles for loss and three quarterback hits.
Myles Garrett, DL, Cleveland Browns. The Browns’ 13-10 win over the Steelers probably set offense back about 25 years, but there was also a lot of great defense played. Nobody played better than Garrett who seemed to be in the backfield even before the football was on my Steelers plays.
He had two sacks, two tackles for loss and three quarterback hits. One of his sacks came on the first defensive snap for the Browns and nearly resulted in a safety.
