What does CLE mean?

Cleveland Browns
The Cleveland Browns are a professional American football franchise in Cleveland, Ohio, who are members of the North division of the American Football Conference of the National Football League. They play at FirstEnergy Stadium, with administrative offices and training facilities in Berea, Ohio. The Browns' official colors are orange, brown and white. They are unique among the 32 member franchises of the NFL in that they do not have a helmet logo. The Cleveland Browns were founded in 1945 by businessman Arthur B. McBride and coach Paul Brown as a charter member of the All-America Football Conference. The Cleveland Browns dominated the AAFC, compiling a 47–4–3 record in the league's four active seasons and winning its championship in each of them. When the AAFC folded after the 1949 season, the Browns joined the National Football League along with the San Francisco 49ers and the original Baltimore Colts. The Browns won a championship in their inaugural NFL season, as well as in the 1954, 1955, and 1964 seasons. From 1965 to 1995, they made the playoffs 14 times, but have never won another championship or even appeared in the Super Bowl.
