New York, New York, an iconic song by Frank Sinatra. New York, New York, the two teams that had their quarterbacks get Offensive Player of the Week.
Tommy DeVito and Zach Wilson won the NFC and AFC OPW awards from their respective performances against the Packers and Texans.
Tommy DeVito led the Giants to a comeback win in primetime against the Green Bay Packers, notching the Giants first primetime home win since in 2017. DeVito’s efforts saw a stat line of 17/21 passing with 158 yards and a touchdown, while rushing for 71 yards off of 10 attempts. DeVito is now 3-1 as a starter and New York has a 94% chance to make the wildcard.
Zach Wilson had the game of his life. After being benched for Tim Boyle, Zach Wilson came back with a lot to prove and he had a revenge game. A 30 point second half led to a blowout win for Gang Green as Wilson went 27/36 passing with 301 yards and 2 touchdowns. The performance by Wilson is undoubtedly the best of his career (so far at least).
The Offensive Player of the Week honors for DeVito and Wilson marks the first time since Week 14 of the 2015 season (Ryan Fitzpatrick and Eli Manning) that the MetLife Stadium teams have shared the honors in their respective conference.
