The New York Giants entered Week 11 hoping to stop the bleeding against a Washington Commanders team they have dominated in recent years.
The Giants came in as near double-digit underdogs on the road with third-string quarterback Tommy DeVito under center.
From the jump, the Giants controlled the game, making the best of six takeaways and four sacks on the day.
The Commanders pulled to within five points late in the 4th quarter, but an interception returned for a touchdown by Isaiah Simmons sealed the deal for the Giants.
The win improved the Giants’ record to 3-8. Here’s how X, formerly known as Twitter, reacted to the upset victory.
There are no meaningless wins. This is a young HC, young GM, and a young core of players.
That need this experience and this confidence to continue building and stacking positives.

Fitting end to this one. Sam Howell just throws it up for grabs and Isaiah Simmons returns the Giants’ sixth takeaway for a clinching interception.

Horrifying win for the Giants. Wow.

i don’t think this win affects the Giants getting a top pick for a QB that much
– 3-14 is still very possible!
– DeVito’s performance probably buys him the rest of the season as the starter
– this team was bound to win at least one more game anyways
– lose vs. NE and we’re good

Thanksgiving at the DeVito household is going to be off the hook on Thursday!

Will be fun to watch that change from week-to-week.

If the Giants only played the Commanders every season they’d be the best team in the NFL.

When Isaiah Simmons still helps the Cardinals secure a higher draft pick…..
