The 1937 NFL season was the 18th regular season of the National Football League. The Cleveland Rams joined the league as an expansion team. Meanwhile, the Redskins relocated from Boston to Washington, D.C.
Midway through the NFL's 11-game season, the Bears were unbeaten (5-0) in the Western Division, while the Giants were leaders in the Eastern (4-1), and they played to a 3-3 tie. The Giants and Bears continued to stay in the lead in their divisions, and the Bears clinched a spot in the title game with its 13-0 win over Detroit. On December 5, the final game of the season had Washington (7-3 and .700) traveling to New York (6-2-2 and .750). A win or a tie would have given the Giants the Eastern title; the Redskins triumphed, 49-14, and got the division crown and the trip to face Chicago in the 1937 championship game.
