Barkley went 68 yards for the score on his impressive scamper.
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.
It was a rare bright spot for New York during the 20-15 loss, though Odell Beckham Jr. did have 11 receptions for 111 receiving yards in his first regular season game back from the ankle injury he suffered last October.
With OBJ and Saquon leading the way, it's hard to believe the Giants' offense will stay down for long.
