1963 Western Division Preview

From the vast Packerville, U.S.A. archives comes today’s feature of the 1963 NFL Western Division preview, as presented in Sports Illustrated’s September 9, 1963 issue. This is excerpted from the full NFL and AFL previews in this same issue. The Packers were coming off a second straight championship following the 1962 season, and hopes were high for another title run for the team.

The Chicago Bears would be the ones to walk off with the 1963 championship trophy, after beating the New York Giants. The Bears had bested Green Bay twice during the season, keeping the Packers out of the title playoff.
