Description:
The 1967 NFL season was the 48th regular season of the National Football League. The league expanded to 16 teams with the addition of the New Orleans Saints. The league's teams were realigned into four divisions: the Capitol and Century Divisions in the Eastern Conference, and the Central and Coastal Divisions in the Western Conference. The Saints and the New York Giants agreed to switch divisions in 1968 and return to the 1967 alignment in 1969.

The NFL season concluded on December 31, when the Green Bay Packers defeated the Dallas Cowboys in the NFL Championship Game (in a game that would be known as the "Ice Bowl"). Two weeks later, the Packers handily defeated the AFL's Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl II in Miami's Orange Bowl, Vince Lombardi's final game as the Packers' head coach.

The Baltimore Colts had tied for the NFL's best record at 11–1–2, but were excluded from the four team playoff, because of the rules for breaking ties within a division. The L.A. Rams won their division title over Baltimore as a result of the Rams' 34–10 win over Baltimore on the last game of the regular season and a 20-20 tie against Baltimore earlier. In competition against Baltimore, L.A. had a 1-0-1 edge, giving them the tiebreaker. Each of the other three division winners had only nine victories.
