All-America Football Conference
The All-America Football Conference (AAFC) was a professional American football league that challenged the established National Football League (NFL) from 1946 to 1949. The league was ultimately unable to sustain itself in competition with the NFL and folded after the 1949 season. Three of its teams were admitted to the NFL: the San Francisco 49ers, the Cleveland Browns, and the original Baltimore Colts (not to be confused with the later Baltimore Colts team, now the Indianapolis Colts).
The Cleveland Browns were the AAFC's most successful club, winning every annual championship in the league's four years of operation.
