EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The competitive fire drives New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley. As a matter of fact, it burns constantly, perhaps dormant only for the few hours he sleeps each night.
"I'm definitely competitive," Barkley said.
Barkley is next level. To the point where Giants receiver Sterling Shepard, one of his closest friends and most common opponents in his endless pursuit of menial competitions, sometimes feels the need to throw his hands in the air and say, "OK, you got it bro!"
When Barkley and Shepard get together, some type of game or competition breaks out.
