The Cleveland Browns trace their roots back as an original member of the All-America Football Conference in 1946.
They were so dominant that they won all four AAFC championships at the expense of the New York Yankees, Buffalo Bills, and San Francisco 49ers.
The Browns moved to the NFL in 1950 and maintained their domination despite being newcomers.

Cleveland won the NFL Championship over the Los Angeles Rams in their first season.
They went on to win in 1954, 1955, and 1964 against the Detroit Lions, the Rams, and the Baltimore Colts, respectively.
Considering those titles, the Browns are tied for the ninth spot in the list of championships among active NFL franchises.
Adding the four AAFC titles gives them eight, but the NFL does not recognize those championships.
After 1964, the Browns played in three NFL Championship games but lost all instances.
Can The Browns Revive Those Glory Days?
The Browns haven’t won a championship since the Super Bowl era started in 1967.
They went to three AFC Championship Games in the 1980s but couldn’t get past the Denver Broncos in all instances.
Since that era, the team clinched two playoff berths, winning one out of three games.
Then came the long playoff drought from 2003 to 2019.
The team showed promise in 2020 after defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers on the road during the Wild Card round.
However, their run ended at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs.
Therefore, the Browns are in the right direction toward adding another championship to their collection.
