FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) Darrelle Revis downplays his skirmish with New York Jets teammate Brandon Marshall, saying that they're just two very competitive players and everything is fine between them.

Revis acknowledges Saturday that he hit Marshall in the face/head area during a play during practice Friday. Marshall took exception to that and the two jawed at each other the rest of the practice, with things coming to a head later when the wide receiver took a swipe at Revis.

Revis says ''it's football, man,'' and it wasn't the first time the two have gotten into it during a practice session.

Marshall spoke to reporters Friday and said they ''crossed that line.'' Revis says the two are moving on from the incident. They didn't match up much during Saturday's late-afternoon practice, and there were no further heated situations.
