It was a tale of two halves Sunday for the Eagles and Giants.
It was also a tale of two halves for Saquon Barkley.
Barkley dominated in the first half with two touchdowns and 127 yards on 15 touches, but in the second half, things took a different turn and the rookie RB. He saw just five touches for 15 yards. We all know how things ended for the Giants (see Roob's observations).
Safe to say, Giants fans were not happy about Barkley’s lack of playing time and took to Twitter to vent their frustrations.

Even Odell Beckham Jr. took a swipe at his coaching staff.
Odell Beckham Jr. on not the #Giants not taking advantage of banged-up #Eagles secondary: "That’s more of a question for coach. Coming in, knowing that they struggled in the secondary, personally I would have loved to attack them. But it wasn’t in our game plan.”— Pat Leonard (@PLeonardNYDN) November 25, 2018
Meanwhile, Eagles fans were singing a different tune.
