Saquon Barkley named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 1

This was a no-brainer.

Saquon Barkley was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his dynamic opening weekend performance in a 21-20 Giants win over the Tennessee Titans in Nashville.

Barkley rushed for 164 yards on 18 carries (9.1 yards per carry), caught a team-high six passes for 30 yards, and added a 4-yard TD run and a game-winning two-point conversion to his 194 yards from scrimmage.

His 164 rushing yards and 194 yards from scrimmage both lead the league after the opening week of games.

Barkley’s 68-run in the early third quarter, with the Giants trailing 13-0, set the table for his touchdown and changed the game. He then made a couple defenders miss with 1:06 remaining to convert a Daniel Jones shovel pass for two points to give the Giants their late one-point lead.

The 164 rushing yards was the third-highest total of his career. Barkley ran for a career-high 189 yards on Dec. 22, 2019 and 170 yards on Dec. 9, 2018, both on the road at Washington’s FedEx Field.
