Giants RB Saquon Barkley willing to do whatever it takes to help team win

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley carried the ball just 11 times while catching four passes during his team’s 35-17 season-opening loss to the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday.

As you might expect, Barkley’s lack of touches have drawn a lot of attention, especially considering the second-year back racked up 120 rushing yards on limited attempts.

But Barkley says he is not concerned about any of that and merely wants to help the Giants win football games.

Of course, many would probably say that New York stands a better chance of winning games if it gives the ball to Barkley more, but it’s not always that simple, as the Giants fell behind early in Week 1 and essentially had to throw the ball to try and get back in the game.

New York will get an opportunity to right the ship this weekend when it plays host to the Buffalo Bills in its home opener. The Bills sport a 1-0 record after defeating the New York Jets
in the very same building last Sunday.
Meanwhile, Barkley is coming off of a rookie campaign in which he racked up 1,307 yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground while hauling in 91 receptions for 721 yards and four scores, making the Pro Bowl as a result.
