L, 28-14 vs. Bills
It stinks to think it, but the New York Giants are wasting some of the prime years of running back Saquon Barkley, who was again dominant in the G-Men’s 28-14 home loss against the Buffalo Bills.
Barkley picked up 107 yards on 18 carries with a touchdown, averaging 5.9 yards in the process.
But Barkley’s prowess wasn’t enough to help propel New York’s offense to more than 370 total yards at home. Quarterback Eli Manning wasn’t good, tossing one touchdown against two interceptions, and hitting less than 58 percent of his passes in the game.
Going 3-of-12 on third down didn’t help matters for the Giants, either.
Outside of Barkley, this New York squad is simply boring and uninspiring. And Manning’s days as a starter could be numbered.
