New York cornerback Prince Amukamara and Dallas starting nose tackle Jay Ratliff will not play when the Giants and Dallas meet on Wednesday night in the kickoff to the NFL season. The Super Bowl champion Giants also said Tuesday that defensive tackle Marvin Austin and offensive tackle James Brewer would miss the game with back injuries. Amukamara is out with a sprained ankle suffered in a preseason game on Aug. 24. None of the three practiced this week. Ratliff (ankle) and rookie safety Matt Johnson (hamstring) won't play for Dallas, while Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten (spleen) and backup safety Danny McCray are doubtful, meaning they only have a 25 percent chance of playing. No one on the Giants is doubtful.

Hakeem Nicks doesn’t care about your replacement refs

T These replacement referees have caused nothing but problems for the fans and the players. It seems Hakeem Nicks of the New York Giants thought he might just go ahead and run into this official to show his frustration.

New York Giants vs Dallas Cowboys Preview

                Although the NFL is restricted to such a small geographic fan base, I think that it is one of the most special sports of all. The NFL has something so unique that other leagues like the NBA, NHL, MLB, and more can’t really replicate as well as the NFL does – its culture. When you think about Sundays, do you think about the NBA, NHL, MLB, or even going...
