Having so many professional football fan sites on the internet is incredibly helpful for posting daily articles about the American Football League.

I found this interesting piece on silverandblackpride.com about the very first game in what developed into perhaps the AFL’s greatest rivalry – the Oakland Raiders vs. the Kansas City Chiefs (then Dallas Texans).

The ARTICLE is a neat little glimpse back at a game 53 years ago.  The only downside?  The photo used in the article shows Dallas Texans star Abner Haynes running the ball in a game against the Boston Patriots, not the Oakland Raiders.
