NFL Championship Game to Be Played Dec. 31

Nov. 28, 1961 - The NFL championship game will be held on Dec. 31 in the home park of the Western champion. The Green Bay Packers are currently in first place in the Western Conference, and there is little chance that any team can catch them. The New York Giants are now leading the Eastern race. The Philadelphia Eagles are a game back and the Cleveland Browns two games behind. The selection of the site was made in the usual manner — by flipping a coin.
