Giants | Mathias Kiwanuka critical of replacement officials

New York Giants DE Mathias Kiwanuka said the replacement officials failed to call many holding penalties in Week 1. Kiwanuka claims he was held by the Dallas Cowboys' offensive line numerous times. "I haven't been held this much since I was a baby," Kiwanuka said after the game. "You've got to understand that these refs have been put in a tough situation, without having weeks, months, years to prepare like the other refs had. It's definitely tough to come in and pick up the nuances of the NFL. I tip my hats to them, but you notice when the real refs aren't out there."
