Saquon Barkley was largely held in check by a staunch Jacksonville Jaguars defense for most of his regular season NFL debut.

Then, in the fourth quarter, the New York Giants rookie running back showed off some of the same magic that made him such a game-changer at Penn State:

Thanks to some nasty juke moves and his sensational balance, Barkley went 68 yards for the score.

He drew praise from Jacksonville defenders after the game for his athleticism. 

"I traded jerseys with (Barkley) after the game because I was like, 'OK, if he can stay healthy, he might one day be a Hall of Famer," Jaguars defensive lineman Calais Campbell told ESPN.

High praise from a player who might be destined for Canton himself.

Barkley finished the game with 128 yards from scrimmage. The human highlight reel has equaled or surpassed 100 yards from scrimmage in 10 of his 11 NFL games so far.
