Best Answer

The Baltimore Colts, the Cleveland Browns and the Pittsburgh Steelers

The Browns, Colts, and Steelers. Although it should be noted that they didn't move from the NFC. There was no NFC before the NFL and AFL merged in 1970. The Browns, Colts, and Steelers left the pre-merger National Football League and joined the 10 American Football League teams to form the American Football Conference after the merger. The other teams that remained from the pre-merger NFL made up the National Football Conference.

Do AFC west teams play AFC east teams?

Yes, but not every year. In general, divisional teams play each other twice per season (home and away), and depending on the season play one game with teams from a different, specified division. In this manner, AFC West teams will play AFC East teams if that is the specified division that season.
