Giants RB Saquon Barkley named NFC Offensive Player of the Week

Saquon Barkley ran all over the Buccaneers during the Giants’ Week 11 win, and now he has an award to show for it.

Barkley, who rushed 27 times for a career-high 142 yards and two touchdowns on the ground (adding a 10-yard touchdown reception for good measure), has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week.

Sunday was Barkley’s third 100-yard rushing game of the season, bringing his total to 728 yards on 158 attempts to go along with seven touchdowns. 

The 21-year-old rookie, who has reached 100 all purpose yards in 9 of the Giants’ 10 games, has hauled in 64 catches for 540 yards and three touchdowns.  

He has a long way to go, but the early returns for Barkley — who has been running behind a brutal offensive line for most of the season — have been incredible.

So, is Saquon on track to be the best Giants running back ever? READ MORE
