Watch: Barkley Scores Game-Winning TD

It wasn’t the best game Saquon Barkley ever had, but the Penn State graduate probably doesn’t care.

Because the Giants won again and are now a surprising 5-1.

New York came back from a 20-10 fourth quarter deficit to beat the Ravens, 24-20, and the Penn State great scored the winning touchdown on a 1-yard run with 1:43 left.

Baltimore held Barkley to 14 yards on six carries in the first half. He had much more success in the second half, running the ball 16 times for 69 yards and the winning score.

Barkley finished the day with 83 yards on 22 carries for a 3.8 yards per carry average. He came into the week averaging 106.6 rushing yards per game, and the 3.8 yards per carry is well below the 5.5 he entered with.

Penn State fans, of course, know Barkley best for what he did prior to his time in the NFL. After playing at Whitehall High School in Whitehall, Pennsylvania, Barkley came to Penn State and eclipsed 1,000 yards in all three of his seasons in Happy Valley. He’s second on the school’s all-time rushing list, 89 yards behind leader Evan Royster and ahead of greats such as Curt Warner, Larry Johnson and Ki-Jana Carter.

The Giants play the Jaguars in Jacksonville next Sunday at 1.
