Cleveland, Baltimore, and Pittsburgh were not original AFC teams. They were NFL teams that came over in the merger in 1970. Being much older fanchises than the AFC, their number of wins, division titles and playoff appearances are artificially inflated in comparison to real AFC teams.

True, but going back to the days of the merger and removing their win/loss record with the NFL would have taken additional research and interestingly enough- I suppose I can make another research based entirely since the days of the merger- this will only then prove the dominance of the AFC West teams 'cause it also fails to note the record of the Seahwawks when they were w/the AFC West.

As far as I can tell, Pittsburgh only has one playoff appearance before 1972.
