Did the Dallas Cowboys ever play the Cleveland Browns?

Yes. The original Cleveland Browns franchise, which had a 17-and-10 record against Dallas from 1960 to 1994, loomed as a serious NFL rival for the Cowboys during the late 1960s. The Browns thwarted Dallas' playoff hopes more than once before Cleveland moved to the American Football Conference in time for the 1970 NFL-AFL merger. The Cowboys have three wins and no losses against the "new" Browns, the team that began play in 1999 -- three years after the original franchise moved to Baltimore to become the Ravens. The Cowboys and the Browns are not scheduled to play again until the 2016 regular season, a game that most likely will be held in Cleveland.
