Thanks to some nasty juke moves and his sensational balance, Barkley went 68 yards for the score.
He drew praise from Jacksonville defenders after the game for his athleticism.
"I traded jerseys with (Barkley) after the game because I was like, 'OK, if he can stay healthy, he might one day be a Hall of Famer," Jaguars defensive lineman Calais Campbell told ESPN.
High praise from a player who might be destined for Canton himself.
Barkley finished the game with 128 yards from scrimmage. The human highlight reel has equaled or surpassed 100 yards from scrimmage in 10 of his 11 NFL games so far.
