Enter Tommy "Cutlets" Devito.

Devito has been the Giant's third-string QB but since being thrust into the starting position he's led the Giants to three straight victories bringing their record to 5 and 8 as of the time of this article.

Devito still lives at home in Cedar Grove with his parents and is an avid fan of chicken cutlets, thus the nickname "Tommy Cutlets".
