So Darrelle Revis, what was it like to walk into MetLife Stadium wearing a Patriots uniform?

"It's just so weird, so weird. It weirds me out every day," Revis said Thursday night after the Giants' 16-13 win over the Patriots in both teams' preseason finale. "No, I'm just joking with you. It's just another game, another stadium."

Revis spent his first six seasons with the Jets, developing into a superstar cornerback with a team that was, and still is, the bitterest of rivals with the Patriots. That didn't stop Revis from signing a two-year contract with New England after a two-year stopover in Tampa Bay. Though there have been reports that Revis wanted to sign with the Jets, he believes he is in the best of possible situations.

Revis said he is not looking down the road to the Patriots' two games against the Jets this season, in New England on Oct. 16 and at MetLife Stadium on Dec. 21.

"I played the Jets last year when I was in Tampa," he said. "It's football. It doesn't matter who's on the schedule and who we play and what team I was on before. All of that stuff is out the door. I'm not going to put no added pressure on me. This is football."
