While the first quarter of Thursday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles didn’t go well for the New York Giants, rookie running back Saquon Barkley put on a show.
Barkley had perhaps the best nine-yard run anyone will ever see. He also caught a screen from Eli Manning and made seemingly the entire Philadelphia defense miss as he went for 55 yards.

The 49ers don’t play the NY Giants until Nov. 12, but they’ve already missed six tackles against Saquon Barkley.

It was certainly a special performance from the No. 2 overall pick. He will be fun to watch for quite some time.
