Drafting Saquon Barkley No. 2 overall over a quarterback is paying off quite well for the New York Giants.
Already through Week 14, Barkley has set a new franchise record for the G-Men by total touchdowns by a rookie.
The touchdown to break the record was an incredible 78-yard scamper against the Washington Redskins. Well, we should say trot, to the end zone as he went untouched in the second quarter. The closest anyone was to the running back was when he lined up at the line of scrimmage.
And as always, Twitter did not disappoint.
