Just as it seemed New York Giants running Saquon Barkley would begin his NFL career on a dull note, the rookie delivered with a monster run for his first touchdown.
In the first quarter with the Giants trailing and in need of a big play, Barkley came through in the clutch with a beautiful 68-yard touchdown run.
WELCOME TO THE NFL SAQUON BARKLEY!

After his first career touchdown pass, Twitter erupted with celebration and joy seeing the first big play in what should be an outstanding career.
Saquon Barkley is a boss hog.
If you were dumb enough to pass on his services “until he proved it,” I look forward to your open admission of idiocy.

That's why you take a Saquon Barkley #2 in the #NFLDraft. You draft game breakers that can do that.. average backs don't bring you that element of the quick strike
