Old Navy TRYING to be clever...All the more reason to stick with Running Game clothing.

Somebody at Old Navy needs a little help with their
American Football League history. In 1961, the Dallas Texans went 6-8

of the 2011 playoffs before dropping 20-13 to the Baltimore Ravens in
the divisional frame.
