RE: Trivia
My first thought was Detroit, I don't know pre-super bowl era but they've been around for a while, however I can't remember them ever actually appearing in the Super Bowl, so I'm guessing they never won a championship at all?

Being a Cowboys fan, I'm really surprised I didn't think of the Eagles first, as they're often made fun of for having no rings. I know they went to a super bowl in the Donovan McNabb years, so that's my guess.

RE: Trivia
As a bonus, who are the only franchises that has won a Super Bowl but never won an NFL title?

Try to guess before Googling.

Oh man that's got to be quite a list.

Cowboys
Patriots
Broncos
Buccaneers
Seahawks
Panthers
Ravens
Jets
Dolphins
Did the Chiefs ever win a super bowl?

That's all I can come up with at this hour, I should've been asleep 4 hours ago. Tried to think of as many AFL franchises and expansion teams that have won the Super Bowl. I'm 34 and my knowledge on pre 80's NFL isn't very good though.

AFL teams and expansion titles post 1970 should not be eligible as an answer since they never had a chance for a NFL title.

The Chiefs did win one. They won IV against Minnesota.

RE: Trivia
Some teams quickly came to mind working off memory

Cardinals - won an NFL championship pre Super Bowl and later played in a superbowl

Vikings won the NFL but lost the Super Bowl.

Lions and Browns - won an NFL championship but have never been to a super bowl.

Of the original pre-merger NFL teams, most have won a super bowl

Rams, Bears, Packers, Steelers, Colts, Cowboys, redskins,, etc.

Cant remember if the eagles won the NFL but I think they did.

I think the answer you are looking for is the Arizona Cardinals?

My initial reaction was nobody but i guess they played 4 super bowls before the merger.

So the answer is the Jets and the Chiefs. Both won the AFL and Super Bowls before the merger and neither have been back to a Super Bowl ever since.
