Weirdly enough, the answers stats shown after the quiz is over show them (correctly) in the NFL...
Maybe a bug in the quiz display?

Depending on what you define as the team, either the New Orleans Pelicans/Hornets or the Charlotte Bobcats/Hornets should be on here.

Well, 1 was founded in 1988 and the other 2002. So I agree, 1 should be on here. I tried Pelicans multiple times kept wondering why they didn't show. "On January 24, 2013, the franchise announced it would rename itself the Pelicans,[10] effective after the conclusion of the 2012–13 season. The Charlotte Hornets' name, history, and records from 1988 to 2002 were returned to its original city to be used by the then Charlotte Bobcats franchise, which subsequently became the Charlotte Hornets, starting May 20, 2014.[1]"

Listing the Baltimore Ravens is just plain wrong. The Ravens moved to Baltimore from Cleveland and changed their name from Browns to Ravens. They are not an expansion team. They have been in the NFL for many decades. The Cleveland Browns are the expansion team. They began playing their games in 1999. If you're going to list teams that moved, you're going to need a bigger list.

We know. However, when the Browns began playing again, they officially inherited the statistics from that the pre-1996 Browns had accumulated. Also, the Ravens are filled in to avoid confusion to satisfy those who consider them to be an expansion team.
