Running back Leroy Kelly replaced Brown who had led the cleveland Browns to the NFL in 1964 as Cleveland’s main offensive threat and won rushing championships in 1967 and 1968. Under head coach Blanton Collier the Browns won division titles in 1968 and 1969, but lost in the championship game both years running.The Cleveland Browns dominanace faded in the 70's and despite a playoff appearance in 1972, they lost in the first round, failing also to make it to the postseason in 1973 and 1979.The Cleveland Browns only bright spot in the 70's was the American Football Conference division Championship in 1971 which they won.


The Browns drafted Bernie Kosar in 1985.He teamed with Earnest Byner and Kevin Mack to power Cleveland’s resurgence in the mid-1980s. The Browns made the playoffs from 1985 through 1989, and Kosar became one of the NFL’s top-ranked quarterbacks. Cleveland reached the AFC Championship Game in 1986, 1987, and 1989, but each time, the Browns lost to the Denver Broncos.Their only consolation was winning the American Football Conference Division Championship in the same yrs.
