Inside Sport - - THE NUMBERS -

The Su­per Bowl is rel­a­tively young by pigskin timescales – it was in­au­gu­rated in 1967. The way it colours NFL his­tory is tough on the Cleve­land Browns, who won four pre-Su­per Bowl era ti­tles. The Browns are one among the not-so-Su­per four, in­clud­ing Detroit, Jack­sonville and Hous­ton. And of this group, Cleve­land is the only city not to have hosted the big game. Even worse: when the Cleve­land fran­chise re­lo­cated to Bal­ti­more in 1996 and be­came the Ravens, it won a pair of Su­per Bowls in 2000 and 2012.
