The 1965 NFL Season featured some of the great competition throughout the season of all time. The NFL was growing in popularity and was on the verge towards heading to the playoff format that would lead to a team winning the Super Bowl. Although this season was pre-Super Bowl era, it definitely had a lot of excitement throughout the year.

 

 

The Western Conference featured a race that was led by the Green Bay Packers in the start of the season. The Packers managed to start off the season with a win and looked as good as they had ever looked. Week after week they continued to find ways to win ball games until the 4th week, where they would be the only undefeated team to survive. The Packers continued on fighting strong, managing to take home victories in the 5th and 6th weeks of the season.

 

While the Packers were the only undefeated team, there were other teams that though they were not undefeated, they would be a threat to the Packers. The Cleveland Browns were leading the way in the Western Conference. They dropped their week 2 game, but they went on to win 4 in a row to achieve a 5-1 record through 6 games. That week they separated themselves from the St. Louis Cardinals.

 

The Cardinals had been fighting neck and neck with the Browns through 5 weeks, sitting at 4-1. Unfortunately the team was not able to win their week 6 game and they began to fall. This was a fall of epic proportions as they went on to win just one more game during the rest of the entire season. After starting out 4-1 they managed to achieve a record of just 5-9.

 

With the Packers and the Browns sitting atop the league in week 6 many people began to dream of a matchup between those two teams. The Baltimore Colts had something else to say about that.

 

The Colts were just a game behind the Packers in the standings and would pull even with the Packers in week 7. The Colts were on a roll and the Packers would relinquish their lead to the Colts as they Colts were the top team in the conference from weeks 8-12.

 

The Browns continued their dominance of the Eastern Conference and would easily win their Conference with a record of 11-3. The next best record in the conference was 7-7.

 

The Colts gave up their lead to the Packers in week 13 as they had a streak of 3 straight weeks without a victory(2 losses and a tie). The Packers just needed a win to take control of the league in the last week. They were only able to manage a tie however and the two teams would finish in a tie for the best record in the league.

 

The Packers would win the tiebreaker game and went on to the championship game against the Browns.

 

The game against the Browns was taken by the Packers and they went one to be the NFL Champions in 1965.
