The 1948 Cleveland Browns season was the team's third season with the All-America Football Conference. It was also a perfect season, recognized as such by the Pro Football Hall of Fame, although the NFL, as the AAFC's former rival, does not recognize it. Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown wrote a letter to the NFL to petition them to officially recognize the 1948 Cleveland Browns.[1]
