The original Cincinnati Bengals professional football team was established as part of the American Football League in 1937. The AFL folded after the 1937 season, so the Bengals continued as an independent team until the formation of a new AFL in 1939. When that league folded at the end of the season, the Bengals joined yet another AFL in 1940. 1941 proved to be the Bengals last season. The original Bengals played their home games at Xavier University Stadium with a few at Crosley Field.
