Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are some headlines for your Thursday morning.

Prince: First game is a must win

The Giants cornerback was frank when discussing his feelings about this Sunday night's game against the Dallas Cowboys. Big Blue has historically not been very good out of the gates, compiling a 6-10 record over the last four years during the month of September, while also losing all four season openers. Because of the turmoil the team has faced over the summer, Amukamara knows that starting the season off with a win will help Big Blue's attitude.

"I think that (a season-opening loss) can break the team’s morale," Amukamara said. "Especially with the guys who’ve already been here, who’ve experienced 0-1 and 0-2 and 0-6. It’s just a bad taste in your mouth."

"You definitely don’t want that feeling here," he added. "It’s a bad disease. There’s a lot riding on this game and I’m sure everyone knows that."

Rashad Jennings: Giants can make playoffs

The Giants running back is providing weekly columns to the New York Post and in this week's edition, he opines that the Giants have the tools to make a run to the postseason.

If somebody thought we were going to win the Super Bowl, it doesn’t matter. And if somebody thinks that we’re terrible, it really doesn’t matter. That’s the great thing about playing this game — you have got to go play it.

Sunday night, you’re going to see a team with grit. That fights. Is poised. And determined.

We have the tools to be able to make it to the playoffs.
