On Thursday night, the New York Giants took on the Philadelphia Eagles in a must-win game. Perhaps the Giants didn’t get the “must-win” notice as the team failed miserably on both sides of the ball in a 34-13 loss.
Saquon Barkley was the lone bright spot for the G-Men on Thursday night. The No. 2 pick in the 2018 NFL draft, Barkley racked up 229 total yards and a touchdown as he led the team in rushing and receiving.
Barkley may not have been the smart pick at No. 2 as Eli Manning’s continued struggle plays out on the national stage. However, he’s already shown he has what it takes to be a transcendent player.
Life is certainly going well for Barkley these days. He’s excelling on the field and he’s got a lot going on off of it, too.
Barkley is dating Anna Congdon, whom he met at Penn State – and the two recently had their first child.
Anna posted a heartfelt photo of the family together on the field earlier this year.
It’s all going right for the young rookie and his family – apart from the Giants’ woes on the field.
