Giants running back Saquon Barkley recorded 197 total yards from scrimmage for the second time this season in Sunday's 40-16 win over the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field, yet he put others in the spotlight after the game.
"I think I've done a good job of surrounding myself with the team outside of the facility," Barkley said, according to ESPN. "Obviously, inside the facility, the trainers and the doctors do a great job, but also taking care of my body outside. You go for 170, it's not by yourself. It starts with the team. The coaches made unbelievable calls and the offensive line dominated up front."
Barkley, who became the first Giants rookie to top 1,000 rushing yards, reeled off a 78-yard touchdown run and a 52-yard gain in the second quarter, recording a career-high 170 rushing yards and getting into triple digits for the fourth straight game.
