About Cleveland Browns

The Cleveland Browns are a professional American football team based in Cleveland, Ohio. The team is a member of the North Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) of the National Football League (NFL). Its home stadium is Cleveland Browns Stadium, where it has played since 1999. The team was founded in the 1940s as a charter franchise in the All-America Football Conference (AAFC), with Paul Brown, the team's namesake and a pioneering figure in professional football, as its first coach. Under his watch, the Browns won the AAFC championship in all four years of its existence, including the AAFC's only perfect season in 1948, and continued to succeed after moving to the NFL in 1950. Cleveland won the league championship in its first NFL season, followed by two more in 1954 and 1955. By then, the team had appeared in 10 straight championship games and won seven.
