I know the answer to the first expansion team to beat a team that goes on to the Super Bowl that year. But unfortunately that's not the question.

The Cleveland Browns defeated the Philidelphia Eagles in 1950.

Cleveland better not be the answer seems they came into the NFL via merger not expansion.

Josh nailed it. The Panthers beat their then division rivals, the 49ers, in 1995. Nice one! ;-D
