The 1974 Green Bay Packers season was their 56th season overall and their 54th season in the National Football League. The club posted a 6–8 record under fourth-year head coach Dan Devine, a consecutive third-place finish in the NFC Central division. The Packers lost their last three games, all to non-playoff teams.

With a year remaining on his five-year contract, Devine resigned a day after the last game of the regular season and returned to college football at Notre Dame,[1][2] following the sudden retirement of Ara Parseghian. Devine was succeeded as head coach at Green Bay by hall of fame quarterback Bart Starr, hired on Christmas Eve.[3][4][5]
