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 NFL world was blown away by his performance.

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