Giants Twitter reacts to Saquon Barkley playing defense

The 2019 Pro Bowl has proved to be the league’s typical lackluster All-Star Game, but that’s not to say there haven’t been at least a handful of noteworthy moments.

Several of those moments took shape late in the third quarter and early in the fourth quarter as Jason Garrett, who is coaching the NFC, decided to put some of his running backs into the game on defense.

New York Giants rookie Saquon Barkley was one of those three backs, joining Alvin Kamara and Ezekiel Elliott.

Barkley has taken four defensive snaps as of this writing, stepping in as defensive back, defensive end and defensive tackle. On one rush around the corner, he and Kamara actually managed to converge on Houston Texans quarterback DeShaun Watson, forcing a quick throw and an incomplete pass.

Here’s how Giants Twitter reacted to Barkley taking defensive snaps (as well as one special teams snap):
