Barkley hits an explosive play

NFL: Miami Dolphins at New York Giants Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

It didn’t take long for New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley to have his second 100-yard rushing game in two weeks.

Barkley took advantage of some truly awful run defense by the Washington Redskins to rip off a 67-yard run for a touchdown on the second play of the Giants’ second drive.

That run gave Barkley 108 yards on just four carries in the first quarter, and cemented his second.

The Giants have been waiting since the second week of the season to see Barkley to begin making explosive plays again. It has taken most of the season to return to form following the high ankle sprain he suffered way back in the first half of the Giants’ Week 3 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

So far this game has been a back and forth affair, and the Giants will need Barkley to keep making plays as Washington answers their scores.
