For the Cowboys to advance to the postseason, the Giants would have to beat the Eagles and beat the Washington Redskins. Barkley is helping them complete the former.
In the third quarter of the Giants and Eagles NFC East tilt, Barkley took it in his own hands to perform the upset. Watch below, as he bursts out of the gates for a 68-yard touchdown scamper to tie the game at 17.

Barkley bounced the run outside, saw a lane and then took it. The 2018 Offensive Rookie of the Year shot through a cannon, sprinting down the hearts of the Eagles' playoff hopes all the way to the end zone for a touchdown.
Just like that, the Eagles' playoff hopes are at risk. The Cowboys' playoff hopes look better. For the Giants, they are just enjoying playing the part of spoiler. What's better than Week 17 NFL mayhem?
The answer: nothing.
Upset Saquon Barkley to spark more of that mayhem, because why not?
Everyone wants to get in on the fun. The Giants have nothing to play for but that.
