Tommy DeVito and the Giants had a tough Week 10 game against the Cowboys.
Heading into the game, not a lot was expected from DeVito and the Giants, who were 17-point underdogs in Dallas.
Expectations were low, but New York’s performance on the field was somehow lower.
After the first half, the Cowboys had made 20 first downs, while the Giants had managed just one. Dallas took a 28–0 lead into the break, and New York gave no indication that they would be managing some sort of storybook comeback thanks to an inspirational halftime speech.
Still, the Giants fought as hard as they could. Facing fourth-and-short in the first quarter, when it was still just a 7–0 game, the Giants elected to go for it, apparently well aware that they would need to score a good amount of points to have any hope of keeping pace with Dallas.
Running back Saquon Barkley ran straight into the line, but did not pick up the first down.
Watching from the stands was DeVito’s father, who was just as frustrated as anyone with the play.
Fans found Mr. DeVito’s reaction quite relatable.

That’s all of us Tommy’s dad. Awful and predictable play calling this entire season. A very very bad offense. https://t.co/4bH8MspXHy

Thankfully for the DeVito family, the day wasn’t a total bust. In the second half, DeVito threw a touchdown pass to tight end Lawrence Cager, ensuring the Giants weren’t shut out.
