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.

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.

More trivia:

If Jack Murphy ("Qualcomm") Stadium in San Diego is demolished, it will be the seventh time that a stadium has been demolished after hosting one or more Super Bowls.

Yep...

But no one ever correctly answered who has won an NFL title but never won a Super Bowl.

So are you talking just during the Super Bowl era? I looked up both of my first two thoughts and they both won NFL titles and neither has won the Super Bowl. If the question was only regarding those four years, the Minnesota Vikings won the 'NFL' but lost Super Bowl 4, and have never won a Super Bowl since then. They also never won a championship before the Super Bowl era, so its kinda semantics to say they've won a NFL title but not a Super Bowl, as they essentially won the NFC title.

They may have essentially won the NFC title but the reality is they are credited with an NFL title yet not a Super Bowl title. It is not semantics because they were different leagues back then (the NFL was clearly superior) and for a trivia question, it left a fun little loophole.

RE: Trivia
I meant semantics more based on the starting date, most people would assume pre-Super Bowl era if counting NFL titles without winning a Super Bowl. The Eagles won the NFL in 1960, just a couple years before the Super Bowl started, and have never won a Super Bowl.

I do agree it is an interesting bit of trivia though.
