New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley is still keen on turning things around after the team’s eighth straight loss on Sunday.
It was much of the same for the New York Giants this weekend. The team suffered their eighth straight defeat, with the most recent one coming at the hands of the Green Bay Packers.
After the loss (the team’s 10th of the year), running back Saquon Barkley spoke to reporters in the locker room. The second-year pro expressed that turning things around is still a huge goal within the organization.

“I keep sounding like a broken record, but I promise, when this thing turns around, I’m going to sound like a genius,” Barkley said. “We just gotta continue to keep working. At 2-10, you gotta come in the building like you’re 10-2. That can’t change, your attitude can’t change, your work ethic can’t change… we gotta keep fighting. There’s going to be better days ahead.
“I know I sound like a broken record and everyone’s probably just rolling their eyes saying ‘here he goes again’ but, when it happens, it’s going to be a beautiful thing.”
Barkley was a bit more efficient than he’s been as of late, carrying the ball 19 times for 83 yards on Sunday. He additionally caught three balls for 32 yards through the air.
The loss, paired with the Washington Redskins’ win over the Carolina Panthers, puts the Giants at the very bottom of the NFC East. They’ll kick off against the second-place Philadelphia Eagles next Monday at 8:15 p.m. ET.
