The New York Giants got their first win of the season today in thrilling fashion, rallying to beat the Tampa Bay Bucs 32-31.
The Giants pulled out the W when Bucs kicker Matt Gay missed a field goal on the final play of the game. The miss set off a sideline celebration, and even the injured Saquon Barkley jumped in.
Barkley injured his right ankle in the first half and spent the second half on the sideline on crutches in a walking boot. Still, he was on the field celebrating with his teammates after the game.
Here’s video of Barkley bouncing around on crutches and hobbling off the field.

Giants fans have to love the enthusiasm, even though that’s not exactly the smartest thing for Barkley to do.
We can forgive him though for getting caught in the moment.
It looks like the Giants can forget about having Barkley for the next few weeks, if he indeed has a high ankle sprain. However, given the fact they got the W and rookie QB Daniel Jones played well, the Big Blue fan base has to be happy.
