Giants CB Prince Amukamara hit hard by crushing defeat

The New York Giants' devastating opening loss to the Dallas Cowboys has left the team emotionally drained. Perhaps no one has taken the loss harder than cornerback Prince Amukamara.

The fourth-year player has never cried in a football game, even dating back to his collegiate days at Nebraska, but this hit hard. He told beat reporter Art Stapleton that this game almost got him to the point of shedding his first tear.

Later, the most commonly quiet Amukamara took his frustration to social media with a post reacting to the loss:

Amukamara and fellow outside cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie did an excellent job containing the Cowboys' outside wide receivers. Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams were held in check for most of the game.

The Cowboys' passing game did damage over the middle of the field and on designed passes to the running backs. Give credit to Tony Romo and the Cowboys' coaching staff for attacking the Giants' defense where they are their weakest -- at linebacker and safety.
