Best Answer

The Pittsburgh Steelers are an AFC team, but originally they were an NFLteam until they were kicked out in 1969 (and subsequently are the oldest AFC team). They have since shown that being kicked out of the NFC was not exactly the worst thing in the world, having reached 15 AFC Championships and being the winningest team in the Super Bowl era. Karma.
