Rookie TE Evan Engram was flagged for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for grabbing his crotch after scoring his first-career touchdown during the Giants' 24-10 loss to the Lions on Monday night.
Engram said after the game that the penalty was "bullcrap," and that he didn't try to do anything intentionally.
"I don't know what they were talking about, I did nothing intentional, but that was bull crap," Engram said. "That was not the intention, that was obvious. I haven't seen it, so I guess I'll look at it."
"I was trying to talk to the refs to let them know, but I guess I accidentally touched something, but it was nothing intentional - it was a bad effort."
Engram also weighed in on the abysmal performance of the offense.
"It's unacceptable," he said. Everybody talks about playing complementary football, and we've got to do that better. Got to get more physical up front, including myself, to get the run game going. Just got to make more big plays, got to make drives, got to drive down the field, get the defense off the field, score points. It's just unacceptable."
The 23-year-old Engram has eight catches for 93 yards and one touchdown in two games this season.
