Saquon Barkley Named NFC Offensive Player of the Week

Former Penn State star running back Saquon Barkley’s talent has never been questioned.

The only thing that people have wondered about Barkley is can he stay healthy in order to display his immense talent because when he does, he’s a special player.

Barkley showed off his talent in Week One of the 2022 NFL season and has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week.

In the New York Giants week one upset of the Tennessee Titans, Barkley had his best game since 2019 as he rushed the ball 18 times for 164 yards and a touchdown. Barkley also caught 6 passes for 30 yards and scored the game-winning two-point conversion.

This is the third time in his young career that Barkley has won this award.

Barkley and the Giants will look to go 2-0 as they take on the Carolina Panthers (0-1).
