New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley has been noticeably humble since the literal moment he stepped on stage at the 2018 NFL Draft. That carried over throughout the season as Barkley routinely praised his teammates — even those who were arguably undeserving — for his own success.

On Friday, Barkley was backed into a corner when asked by ESPN reporter Dianna Russini to state his case for NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year over Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.

The question clearly caught Barkley off guard and it took him a moment of tripping over his own words before finally blurting out, “put on the film.”

“Well, you put me on the spot there,” Barkley said with an almost embarrassed smile. “Put on film. If you put on film and watch my peers, and you see people who play against me and coaches who play against me, they can answer that question better than I can.”

Barkley isn’t wrong. His best case for the 2018 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award is film of his play. He was the most electric player in football and save for a two-game stretch late in the season, dominated on a weekly basis.

The award winner will be officially announced at the NFL Honors Award Show on Saturday, February 2 at 9:00 p.m. ET.
