Game Balls from NY Giants thrilling week 4 win over the Saints
Number 2: Saquon Barkley
He’s back, baby!
After three weeks of slowly working his way back into the offense, Saquon Barkley exploded onto the scene this game.
This was without a doubt the best game of the season for the 4th year running back, and while he didn’t get the work load like he did in the past. it seems as if it can only go up from here.
Barkley’s final stats: 13 rushes for 52 yards and a TD, 5 receptions for 74 yards and a TD
Things started off kind of slow for Barkley, only rushing the ball 6 times for 34 yards and 1 reception for -4 yards in the first half.
While Saquon is still in the process of coming back from an ACL injury, only rushing the ball 6 times to a running back of his caliber is not ideal.
After a moment of dead offense for the whole team in the 3rd quarter, Barkley became a game changer in the 4th quarter and overtime.
Down 21-10 with 6:42 remaining in the game Barkley caught a beautiful pass from Daniel Jones. Showcasing his trademark speed and elusiveness he evaded 2 defenders on his way to a 54 yard touchdown to bring the Giants back into the game.
Heading into overtime with the ball 1st the Giants offense looked to Barkley to seal the game. 3 plays prior to the final touchdown, Barkley received an 18 yard pass from Daniel Jones to help bring the offense closer to the red zone.
And after a beautiful pass to Golladay from Jones the Giants had the ball on the Saints 6 yard line where Saquon Barkley called game. Bouncing between Nate Solder and Will Hernandez. Barkley eventually fought his way around and through 2 defenders and found his way into the end zone for the game winning TD.
