Despite growing up in District Heights, Md., San Francisco linebacker NaVorro Bowman has no allegiances to the Baltimore Ravens.

And no, it's not because he was a Washington Redskins fan.

"I was a Cowboys fan," Bowman said. "Being the youngest in the house, being the baby, my mom, my brother, my aunts -- everyone liked the Redskins. So I decided to go to the rivals with the Cowboys."
