Giants Beat: Top-form RB Saquon Barkley missing in action

Saquon Barkley returned, but top-form Saquon Barkley still is missing in action.

Barkley said it was good to be back but as the story said he didn't get enough touches, six rushes for 25 yards and six catches for 31 yards. Barkley added, "I’m going to do whatever it takes to get my brain and my feet and my legs caught up together."
