The rookie told ESPN that the decision to bunk up with his parents is "a no-brainer" for him.

"Everything that I need is there at the house," the winning QB said in November 2023 ahead of leading his team to victory against the Green Bay Packers on Dec. 11.

"The decision was made since this level of football is stressful for a rookie, especially from the quarterback position," Tommy continued. "There is a lot going on, a lot of meetings. So everything outside of football is handled by my family."

He went on to hilariously detail, "I don't have to worry about laundry, what I'm eating for dinner, chicken cutlets, and all that is waiting for me when I get there. My mom still makes my bed. Everything is handled for me. Honestly, I don't even know if I could find a place closer to here than where I live. It takes me 12 minutes to get here."

Tommy has become known as "the cutlet king" to his many fans, who rooted him on when he took the top position and led the Giants to victory against the Green Bay Packers in a lead-up match to the 2023 playoffs.

Tommy is in good company to be fair.

According to Statista, as much as 12 percent of females aged 25 to 34 still live in their parents' homes. In the same age range, 18 percent of males are enjoying mom's chicken cutlets, laundry service, and bed-making.

As for Tommy's counterparts on other NFL teams, well, they aren't getting the benefit of dinners from mom quite like "Tommy Cutlets."

For instance, Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes resides with his wife and two kids on an 8-acre compound in Missouri, per Architectural Digest.

But hey, no judgment! Tommy, you do you. Clearly, fans love you and you are killing it on the field this season.

Maybe the secret is those chicken cutlets!
