Unfortunately, Barkley’s first touchdown came in a losing effort. Falling 20-15 to the tough Jacksonville Jaguars, the Giants lose in the most infuriating and frustrating fashion.
Newcomer claimed on waivers Kaelin Clay muffed a punt with under a minute remaining—the last hope for the team. Eli Manning just needed a chance.
Nevertheless, Barkley’s 68-yard scamper saved what was really a poor rushing attack in Week 1 for the Jints.
Saquon Barkley finished with 105 yards (including that 68-yard score) on 18 attempts.
