Cincinnati Bengals

TEAM HISTORY

The Bengals franchise began in 1968 after three years’ worth of campaigning from Paul Brown, former coach for the Cleveland Browns.

Brown named the team after Cincinnati’s former pro football team called the Bengals that played in the 1930s and 1940s.

In 1970, the Bengals secured the AFC Central Division title and became the first expansion team to win a championship in its first three years.

The Bengals have made it to the Super Bowl twice in their history, losing both times to the San Francisco 49ers.

Anthony Muñoz, who spent his entire career with the Bengals, is considered by many to be one of the best offensive tackles in NFL history.
