has never had a promising young quarterback like Carr.

EAST RUTHERFORD Womens Patrick Mahomes Jersey , N.J. (AP) — Saquon Barkley needed one play to justify the hype.

After banging and grinding for small gains much of the game, the No. 2 overall draft pick wowed New York Giants‘ fans in his NFL debut with a spectacular 68-yard, fourth-quarter touchdown run in a 20-15 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

The Penn State product finished with a game-high 106 yards rushing, caught two passes for 22 yards and showed there was a good reason why he was the most-hyped rookie to join the franchise since Lawrence Taylor started a Hall of Fame career in 1981.

“That’s why we drafted that young man,” Giants coach Pat Shurmur said after the Jaguars spoiled his coaching debut with New York.

Defensive end Calais Campbell, one of six Pro Bowlers on a Jaguars defense that was ranked No. 2 overall last season, was impressed with Barkley after the first few plays of the game, a run for zero and another for minus-3.

“The first run and the first couple of times I tackled him, I said, this kid has something,” Campbell said. “Obviously, you see it on tape, but we didn’t get to watch a lot of tape on him. It’s his college tape. Coming into the NFL against a team like ours, and making some of the plays he made, that kid’s going to be special.”

Campbell said he traded jerseys with Barkley after the game.

“I was like, “OK http://www.dolphinsauthorizedshops.com/ … the-jersey , if he can stay healthy, he might one day be a Hall of Famer,” Campbell said.

The touchdown run was impressive. Barkley took a handoff from Eli Manning inside, cut it to the outside, stepped out of a tackle attempt and ran down the right sideline, getting a great block from receiver Sterling Shepard.

“It was amazing; it was a great feeling, but it was a feeling that came and went,” Barkley said. “One touchdown is not going to win the game, and that touchdown didn’t win the game this week, but to get in there, it was a dream come true to find the end zone. I did keep the ball, but it was just like ‘Move on, next play,’ and find a way to get in there again.”

For most of the game, the Jaguars held Barkley in check . Eleven of his 18 carries were for 3 yards or less.

“Yeah, obviously Authentic Taylor Hall Jersey , you wish that they were all 75- and 80-yard runs, but it wasn’t like that in college and I didn’t expect it to be like that in the NFL,” the 21-year-old said. “You have to take what they give you. It’s kind of like playing chess: When you get your opportunity, you have to execute.”

Barkley said there was one play where he realized that NFL is going to be a lot different than college. He made a player miss on a run, broke outside and was tackled by free safety Tashaun Gipson Sr.

“In college, that was a touchdown,” Barkley said. “It was a great play by him.”

It just reminded Barkley that big plays are special.

“Today, we didn’t pop one until like the fourth quarter or end of the third, so you just have to continue to stay with it,” he said. “That’s what I kept saying, the offensive line and also to just stay with it, something is going to pop, and when they give us that chance, we have to make them pay for it.”

When Jon Gruden was hired for a second stint as Oakland Raiders coach, there were immediately questions about how quarterback Derek Carr would respond to Gruden's intensity, cursing and hands-on approach after four seasons with more low-key coordinators and defensive-minded head coaches.

Carr laughed off those doubts Adidas Shea Weber Jersey , pointing out that he's familiar with the swear words Gruden sometimes spews even if Carr doesn't use them, and he said he welcomes the challenge of a coach who will always keep him on edge.

"I have to be on my game in front of my teammates," Carr said. "It's awesome, man. I absolutely love it. He wants me to get up in front of the room and show them the way I do things and hear it from my voice. Just the way the quarterback position is treated. He's a quarterback guy, being the head coach is completely different."

Carr began his career with Dennis Allen as head coach back in 2014 and Jack Del Rio came in the following year for three seasons. Their expertise was defense, leaving much of the offense and the tutoring of Carr to the coordinators.

It's been completely different with Gruden in charge, as he will call the plays, runs the offensive meetings and frequently peppers Carr with questions about how he would handle all types of situations.

"Whenever we're not doing something, we're together," Carr said. "If we're in an offensive meeting. If we're not in an offensive meeting, I'm sitting right next to him in the quarterback room. If I'm not in on a rep, I'm standing right by him. He's (saying,) 'Hey what do you think? What would you get to here? What would you do? What would you do?' That's the way it should be. He challenges me. He pushes me. He wants the best for me. You can tell that with his preparation every day. He's ready every day to give me something to let me dominate that day. It's awesome."

The success of the relationship between Gruden and Carr will go a long way in determining the success of the Raiders this season as they try to bounce back from a disappointing six-win season.

After showing steady progress his first three seasons that helped Carr grow from a second-round pick in 2014 to a quarterback with MVP support in a breakthrough 2016, Carr took a major step back last season under first-time coordinator Todd Downing.

After breaking his leg in the next-to-last regular-season game in 2016 to cost him an opportunity to play in the postseason, Carr had another injury early last season when he broke a bone in his back in a Week 4 loss at Denver.

He missed only one game because of the injury but never looked completely comfortable in the pocket after that as he matched his career high with 13 interceptions and recorded his worst totals in yards, touchdowns and passer rating since his rookie year in 2014.

Carr has looked like a new quarterback in practice this season.

"Derek looks like a completely different person in my eyes Dean Lowry Jersey , just from the way he's attacking the game," tight end Jared Cook said. "From the way he's attacking the challenges that Gruden has been giving to him. Every time that Gruden asks him a question, he gets it right, no hesitation. Every time Gruden asks him to get up in front of a meeting room and call out a play, run a play, get to the right check, get to the right audible, he does it every time. That's a responsibility that Derek never had last year. You see a totally different player out of him. He's attacking the game differently mentally and he has a totally different attitude going in to this year."

The Raiders hope that translates on the field starting with Monday night's opener against the Los Angeles Rams. Carr didn't get tested much in the preseason, playing just two drives.

But Gruden has done his best to challenge him at practice and sees the quarterback he was so high on back at the "Gruden QB Camp" four years ago. Gruden has never had a promising young quarterback like Carr.

He had success with veteran Rich Gannon his first time in Oakland and won a Super Bowl with Brad Johnson in Tampa Bay. But Gruden struggled to find a consistent passer in his later years with the Buccaneers. He believes Carr can be that guy.

"I try not to over-coach him," Gruden said. "He is a blast to be around. He is extremely talented. He's a great worker. We're trying to give him a system that he can sink his teeth into and take control of when the game starts. He's got tremendous leadership and style. But, I think we're making progress. I can't speak for him, but I sure enjoy coming in here and working with him every day."
