The 1936 Green Bay Packers season was their 18th season overall and their 16th season in the National Football League. The club posted a 10–1–1 record in 1936 under head coach Curly Lambeau,[1] earning them a first-place finish in the NFL's Western Division.

The Packers met the Eastern Division champion Boston Redskins (7–5) in the NFL Championship Game, held at the Polo Grounds in New York City.[1][2][3][4] The favored Packers had won the two regular season meetings with Boston and won 21–6 for their fourth NFL Championship,[5][6][7] first earned by playoff victory, and first since the three-championship streak of 19291931.

The Packers' 1936 schedule began with six consecutive home games, with the remainder of the season on the road.
