Brown Responsible for Bengals’ Birth

The American Football League welcomed the Cincinnati Bengals as an expansionufabet เว็บตรงทางเข้า team 40 years ago in 1968. Paul Brown had coached the Cleveland Browns in the past and took over the coaching duties for this upstart team. It was Brown who had spearheaded the effort to bring a second pro team to the state of Ohio. The Bengals name was chosen by Brown to honor some previous pro football groups that had been based in the city during the 1930’s and 1940’s. The first season for the Bengals started out positively with 2 home wins but the season ended with a disappointing 3-11 record. However this was the most wins for any 1960’s era football expansion franchise. With Brown’s guidance and expertise Cincinnati won their AFC Central Division title in 1970 and was the first expansion team to ever win a championship in their first years of competition. They had to wait a few years, but by 1981 the Cincinnati Bengals tickets were hotter than ever as these players made their first Super Bowl debut.
