Saquon Barkley can manage nasty juke relocations versus linebackers on the football field, however when it pertains to dodgeball and Demario Davis … ehhh, not a lot.
The New York Giants star showed he ain’t precisely elite at the kids’s game during the 2023 Epic Pro Bowl Dodgeball competition … taking a big shot right to the face!!
Here’s what occurred … Barkley and Davis, a New Orleans Saints linebacker, were the only ones left in the NFC offense vs. NFC defense competitors on Thursday in Las Vegas — and needed to take each other out in a one-on-one face-off to win all of it.
Barkley displayed some outstanding protective relocations by bobbing and weaving initially … however that ended rapidly after Davis tossed a heating unit right at the person’s face.
Waiting for your authorization to fill the Instagram Media.
To his credit, Saquon shook it off — and it really assisted his NFC group win … since headshots aren’t permitted, and Davis was DQ’ed for it.
“Got hit in my face,” the 25-year-old stated later on the Giants’ Instagram, “but at the end of the day, we got the win. That’s the only thing that matters.”
Outside of the uncomfortable minute for Barkley, the night went off without a drawback … including an insane scene including Cleveland Browns star Myles Garrett … who actually displayed his athleticism in the NFC vs. AFC last.
