Amukamara: Monday 'A Punch In The Face'
The Giants entered the season with a revamped secondary confident that the unit would be one of the best in the league. Then Calvin Johnson happened. The Detroit superstar torched the Giants for 164 yards and two touchdowns on seven receptions. One of those touchdowns was a 67-yarder.

We learned from it and we didn't shy away from the film. It's hard to look at but we definitely looked at it and learned from it," cornerback Prince Amukamara said. "Not taking anything away from the Lions, they made a lot of plays, but a couple plays I felt like we kind of hurt ourselves, 'shot ourselves in the foot,' but we just have to be smarter."
