New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley has wowed us countless times already this year. He shows on a weekly basis why he is one of the most gifted running backs in the NFL. This week, he showed it once again with a glorious 51-yard touchdown run against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Barkley was already dominating against the Eagles with a receiving touchdown and several big runs to go with it. He decided to take it a step further in the second quarter and humiliate three of Philadelphia’s players in the process.

It looked like Barkley was stuck with three defenders around him, yet he found a way to make them all miss and slip through the defense then let his speed carry him into the end zone.
It’s just beyond words at this point how great the rookie is and he will only get better as New York’s offense improves.
