The Cleveland Browns are a professional American football team based in Cleveland, Ohio. They play in the AFC North Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) in the National Football League (NFL). The Cleveland Browns began play in 1946 as a charter member of the All-America Football Conference (AAFC) and joined the NFL in 1950 after the AAFC folded.
The Browns-Steelers rivalry is one of the most storied rivalries in the NFL. The rivalry has been called locally the Turnpike Rivalry, due to the two cities being connected via the Pennsylvania and Ohio Turnpikes. The Browns and Steelers first met in 1950, the Browns' first in the NFL after dominating the AAFC. At 114 meetings and counting, it is the oldest rivalry in the AFC.
