With four minutes left in the first quarter Giant backup QB Tommy DeVito was picked off by Jets defensive back Brandin Echols, who makes a amazing catch, return for a TD. Jets lead 14-0 in the first quarter
As head coach Brian Daboll indicated, the New York Giants did not change their plan on Saturday against the New York Jets due to Aaron Rodgers’ debut. They sat their starters and relied mainly on backups and players fighting for a 53-man roster spot. It’s a good thing, too, since the injuries to those players mounted by the minute.
How that influences the team’s decisions on Tuesday remains to be seen but it will likely result in some waiver claims.
