NEW YORK -- Manhattan is now "Revis Island."
The unofficial name change came during a pep rally for the New York Jets held during rush-hour Thursday in Times Square.
Gang Green faces the Indianapolis Colts Sunday for the AFC championship game. The Jets are just a win away from the Super Bowl.
Thousands of Jets fans roared their approval when Mayor Michael Bloomberg unveiled a large municipal-style sign printed "Welcome to Revis Island" with the team's logo in one corner.
That's the nickname Jets All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis had given his man-to-man coverage of the opposing team's wide receiver earlier this season.
