The Giants are taking on the top-seeded Philadelphia Eagles and New York is ready to cement themselves in franchise history. The Giants want to make a statement on Saturday and star running back Saquon Barkley is looking to do just that.

Barkley had a solid regular season, with 1,312 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns, but says great players are the ones who cement themselves in NFL history, so he needs to perform well in the playoffs.

"You've got to do it in both -- regular season and postseason -- throughout your whole career," Barkley said, via "There's going to be ups, there's going to be downs, but you've got to try to be a consistent player."

Barkley helped lead the team to the playoffs for the first time since 2016 and last week the Giants got their first playoff win since the 2011 season, when New York went on to beat the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl. Those 2011 players made their mark by winning when it counted most and that is the type of legacy Barkley is after.

"You want to create a legacy. You look at all the Giants greats -- they did it in the postseason," he said.
