Giants rookie running back Saquon Barkley was New York's leading rusher and receiver in Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium.
Barkley finished with 28 rushing yards on 11 carries and 80 receiving yards on 14 receptions, the most in a game in franchise history, as the Giants fell to 0-2 for the second straight season.
Through their first two games of the season, the Giants have scored just 31 points and totaled 579 yards and two touchdowns. Barkley, alone, has accounted for one of the touchdowns and 236 total yards (or 41 percent of New York's total offense).
A week after he ran for 106 yards and scored a 68-yard touchdowns against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Barkley's longest rush was a 10-yard run, as the Cowboys limited the Giants to just 35 yards on the ground.
Most of his catches came on check-downs from Eli Manning, who was 33-of-44 for 279 yards and a touchdown.
Barkley had five catches for 30 yards on New York's final two drives, which ended with an Evan Engram 18-yard touchdown and a 38-yard Aldrick Rosas field goal, however the Giants' offense struggled for most of the game, recording just 79 total yards of offense in the first half.
As much as the Giants' offense has struggled, Barkley has been the bright spot. He tied the NFL's single-game rookie record for receptions, according to Elias Sports Bureau. His 16 receptions put him in a tie for the eighth-most among all NFL players, and his 102 receiving yards are the ninth-most among all running backs.
