Which Four NFL Football Teams Have Never Been to the Super Bowl?

Entering the 2018 NFL season there are four teams or franchises which have never been to the Super Bowl. Can you name the four teams?
Two of the teams did win NFL Titles before the Super Bowl was first played during the 1966 season. But neither team has been able to make it to the Super Bowl. 
Teams are listed below based upon how many years they have played without making the Super Bowl.

Which Four NFL Football Teams Have Never Been to the Super Bowl?

1. Detroit Lions - 50 years no Super Bowl appearance
The Detroit Lions won NFL Championships four times in 1935, 1952, 1953 and 1957, but the team has never appeared in a Super Bowl over the 50 years the game has been played. The closest the Lions came to the Super bowl was the 1991 NFC Championship game where the team was clobbered by the Washington Redskins who went on to win the Super Bowl that season.
2. Cleveland Browns - 47 years no Super Bowl appearance
The Cleveland Browns won four NFL Championships in 1950, 1954, 1955 and 1964. The team has never made the Super Bowl, though, covering the 1966 to 1995, and then from 1999 to the present day periods.  In 1996, Art Model moved his team from Cleveland to Baltimore but that team is officially considered an expansion team and the Browns franchise was brought back to the NFL in 1999.
The Browns did play in three AFC Championship games in 1986, 1987 and 1989, but lost all three times. John Elway and the Denver Broncos beat the Browns in all three of those AFC Championship games.
3. Jacksonville Jaguars - 21 years no Super Bowl appearance
The Jacksonville Jaguars joined the NFL in 1995 as an expansion team and the Jags have yet to make it to the Super Bowl. The Jaguars have reached the AFC Championship game three times, 1996, 1999 and 2018, but lost all three times.
4. Houston Texans - 14 years no Super Bowl appearance
The Houston Texans joined the NFL in 2002 as an expansion team and the franchise has yet to even come close to making the Super Bowl. The Texans have made the playoffs just three times and advanced to the Divisional round twice but have yet to advance to a conference championship game.
