The Cincinnati Bengals joined the
American Football League as an expansion team in 1968.
By 1970, under the direction and guidance of the legendary Paul
Brown, the Bengals won the AFC Central Division to become the
first expansion team to win a championship of any kind in just
three years. In 1981, sporting a new look, Cincinnati
advanced to its first of two appearances in the Super Bowl.
