The Cincinnati Bengals began in the American Football League before joining the AFC after the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. When Paul Brown was released as the Cleveland Browns head coach, Brown decided to create another team within the NFL. Brown decided Cincinnati had great pull from surrounding cities, as shown through the Cincinnati Reds. After the merger between the AFL and NFL, the Bengals went to the AFC. Brown was the head coach for the Bengals for their first eight seasons until 1975. He then maintained ownership of the team as president.
The Bengals won the AFC championship in 1981, 1988, and 2021. After the first two conference championships, they lost to the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowls XVI and XXIII.
