Here's the AP's Tom Canavan:
When Tom Coughlin started discussing the Lions with his New York Giants, there was no mention of either Detroit's near-record 23-game road losing streak or the 1-4 regular-season mark.
Coughlin did his normal PowerPoint presentation with the focus on all the things that make the Lions a tough opponent, starting with a reminder they easily could have won every game they played this season.
The Giants coach added Detroit has playmakers on both sides of the ball from receiver Calvin Johnson to rookie defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, and that quarterback Shaun Hill was coming off a great game.
And if that didn't get the Giants' attention, Coughlin reminded his team the Lions were coming off a 44-6 win over the St. Louis Rams, a team that, like that Giants (3-2), was riding a two-game winning streak.
Bottom line for the Giants is to focus on Sunday. And don't even think about looking past the Lions, even though NFC East rival Dallas is next on the schedule in a nationally televised game a week from Monday.
