Is there anything Saquon Barkley can’t do?
The Giants rookie running back was put to the test on Thursday in the Pro Bowl Skills Competition and conquered the showdown like a champion.
The challenge began with Best Hands, then went to Precision Passing, 40-yard Splash, the Gridiron Gauntlet and ended on an epic game of Dodgeball between the AFC and NFC.
Fans received the chance to watch the best NFL players compete in a game kids enjoy playing in elementary school. The final dodgeball challenge was a best-of-three competiton. The AFC picked off each member of the NFC until the last man standing was also the toughest to hit.

Barkley shimmied to the right, hip-checked to the left and dove to avoid AFC’s attack. Finally, Eric Ebron caught Barkley’s throw to eliminate the running back for a 1-0 AFC lead.
Barkley was back for more in the final with the competition tied at 1 apiece. The teams one-upped to 6-on-6 and the AFC athletes were diminishing before our eyes. The NFC eventually eliminated every single AFC member while keeping their six-man army in tact.
Barkley celebrated by holding the Pro Bowl Skills Competition trophy, adding another feat to his list.
