Twitter exploded over Saquon Barkley and Micah Parsons on Monday Night Football

Monday Night Football turned into a bit of a showcase for Penn State football as Micah Parsons and the Dallas Cowboys visited Saquon Barkley and the New York Giants in an NFC East battle.

Parsons and the Cowboys came out on top in front of the Giants’ version of the whiteout in the Meadowlands, and Parsons put on quite the show.

Parsons went into the game feeling under the weather, although he did not test positive for COVID so he was still able to take the field and make some plays on defense.

 The 2021 NFL defensive rookie of the year was determined to make this his Michael Jordan flu game.

Unfortunately for Parsons, his defensive production was scaled back from his typical performance.

Parsons ended the night with just one tackle, but he did have a couple of eye-popping QB hurries on Giants quarterback Daniel Jones.

Barkley was not going to let the game go without a couple of highlights of his own, of course. Barkley ripped off a 36-yard touchdown run midway through the third quarter to give the Giants a lead.
