Saquon Barkley Continues Historic Rookie Season Despite Giants’ Loss To Panthers
Saquon Barkley continued his dream rookie season by racking up 129 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns in the Giants’ 33-31 loss to the Panthers Sunday.

Barkley and the Giants take on the Eagles Thursday in a game that will create a loyalty conflict for much of Nittany Nation.
