Giants OT Kareem McKenzie described his behavior in Sunday's loss to the Titans as "despicable" when speaking to reporters in front of his locker on Monday.

McKenzie received two personal-foul penalties and was benched by head coach Tom Coughlin. McKenzie met with Coughlin in the morning to discuss the penalties.

"I spoke with him and it was a conversation that needed to be had. I have to exercise better judgment," said McKenzie. "The behavior I displayed was despicable and deserved that action."

McKenzie, a 10-year veteran, was just one of the undisciplined Giants on Sunday. They committed 11 penalties, including five 15-yard personal fouls.
