The Chicago Bears advanced to the NFL Championship Game the following Sunday against the East Division winning New York Giants. The Bears beat the Giants at Wrigley Field 37-9 to win their second consecutive NFL title. (SOURCE: Yahoo Sports)

1941 IN REVIEW
With the Chicago Bears detroying all of their opposition in the early part of the campaign, everyone but Curly Lambeau was calling the Bears a super team. Lambeau reminded his Packers that the Bears were only human and due for a fall, and, when the two clubs met in mid-season, the hard-nosed Green Bay defense shut off the Bears and led the Packers to a 16-14 upset win. That triumph made up for an earlier loss to the Bears and led to both clubs having identical 10-1-1 records when the regular season ended. The Packers went into the playoff game, the first for the NFL since it went to divisional play in 1933, with the NFL's premier receiver and league MVP Don Hutson, a superb passer and strategist in Cecil Isbell, a stable of hard-charging runners headed by Clarke Hinkle, and a tough forward wall featuring Baby Ray and Buckets Goldenberg. But with all their talent, Green Bay came up empty in the rubber match with Chicago, losing 33-14.
THE BEST WHO DID NOT MAKE THE POST-SEASON
The Green Bay Packers in 1941, by virtue of splitting their two games with the Chicago Bears, ended the regular season in a tie, the first divisional tie in NFL history. And it prevented the Packers from placing themselves on a list of the best NFL teams to not make the post-season:
1967 BALTIMORE COLTS (11-1-2) - The Colts rolled to an 11-0-2 record, but saw their playoff hopes implode in Week 14. They lost to the Los Angeles Rams, 34-10, and the Rams and Colts tied for the Coastal Division title. The top tiebreaker was point differential in head-to-head games, and since the teams tied, 24-24, earlier in the year, the Rams advanced. The following year, the Colts went 13-1 and lost Super Bowl III. Their two-year record of 24-2-2 remains the second best ever.
1963 GREEN BAY PACKERS (11-2-1) - The Packers lost both of their games with the Bears, giving Chicago the Western Conference title with a 11-1-2 record. They had a two-year record of 23-3-1 going back to 1962.
1991 SAN FRANCISCO 49ers (10-6) - According to an ESPN analysis, Of the 12 teams that went 10-6 between 1978 and 1991 and didn't make the playoffs, the Niners had the best point differential. In fact, they had the second-best differential in the entire NFL in 1991. They got off to a 4-6 start, losing by margins of two, three, six, five, three and seven points. Unfortunately, two of those close losses were to the Falcons, who beat them for a wild-card spot based on head-to-head competition.

(GREEN BAY) - Win Pederson booted a place kick with 15 seconds of play left to give the New York Giants a tie with the Green Bay Packers in a stirring exhibition game last night. The latter part of the game was played on a pouring rain which made the field a slippery mess. Howie Yeager, Giant rookie, and Tony Canadeo, newcomer to the Packer lineup, sparked the touchdown drives. Yeager put the ball in position for Clinton McClain to push over from the three for New York's first score in the second quarter. Green Bay tied the score with a touchdown by Canadeo in the third quarter. Hutson followed with a 15-yard field goal. The Giants again took the lead in the final quarter with a 75-yard touchdown play on a pass from Ed Danowski to Yeager. The Bays countered with a brilliant pass from Cecil Isbell to Carl Mulleneaux for 48 yards and a touchdown. The Giants took the kickoff and marched down the field to set up Pederson's kick.

September 7: Green Bay (1-0-1) 28, Philadelphia 21
(MILWAUKEE) - The Green Bay Packers still will be relying heavily on their famous passing combination - Cecil Isbell to Don Hutson - when their campaign opens next Sunday against the Detroit Lions at Green Bay. That was shown here yesterday as the Bays wound up their preseason exhibition schedule with a 28-21 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. Ten thousand fans saw the Packers run up a 21-0 lead shortly before the first half ended and then watched a vastly improved Philadelphia team play havoc with Green Bay's defense and ring up three touchdowns. The Eagles were fighting for a possible tie in the closing minutes as Len Barnum, former New York star, tossed a flock of incompleted passes. Philadelphia was down on the Bays' seven-yard stripe in this late unsuccessful threat.

(GREEN BAY) - A barrage of field goals and two last-period touchdowns gave the Packers a 23-0 victory over the Detroit Lions in the season's opener. Detroit passed the 50-yard line only once. Clarke Hinkle became the NFL's leading career rusher on the eighth play of the game, when he passed Ace Gutowsky's previous record of 3,478 yards.

(MILWAUKEE) - The Packers, long famed for their brilliant passing game, demonstrated they also possessed a devastating ground attack. They smashed through the line and around the ends of a hard-playing Cleveland team to amass 235 yards on 62 running plays as they handed the Rams their first defeat of the season. The Packers scored two of their touchdowns on passes, but it was their ground attack that gave them position on both occasions. They gained position for their third touchdown and a 36-yard field goal on pass interceptions. Don Hutson was held without a reception for the first time since the 1936 season finale.

(GREEN BAY) - The Bears came from behind in the third period with an explosive drive, which took all of 50 seconds, and rolled on to defeat the Packers, in the first defense of their championship. Reeling from quick thrusts by the Bears' famed quick-opening offense, the Packers called out a weapon equally famous - Cecil Isbell's forward passing - and shortly after the third period opened they converted a 15 to 0 lead by the Bears into a 17 to 15 lead for themselves. Chicago took the lead back as George McAfee dashed 51 yards with the kickoff, and Bill Osmanski battered through a suddenly opened hole at center for 23 more. Ray Nolting hammered for 13 more, setting up McAfee, who scampered 13 yards around the left end for the go-ahead score.

(MILWAUKEE) - The Packers rallied with a touchdown in the last three minutes to defeat the Chicago Cardinals at State Fair Park. Although hampered by a muddy field, the Cardinals protected a six-point lead and held the Packers scoreless through the second and third periods. They uncorked a deceptive series of screened passes and fake reverses to score late in the first period and early in the second. The Packers won by virtue of blocking the extra point after the Cardinals' first touchdown. Otherwise the game probably would have ended in a tie.

(MILWAUKEE) - The Packers waited only five minutes for their first tally then kept right on exploding. Andy Uram scored Green Bay's second score on a brilliant 90-yard broken field run. A total of 54 passes were thrown, with the Dodgers getting their own scores on a 19-yard heave from Ace Parker to Perry Schwartz in the third quarter. Brooklyn gained 126 yards on 13 completed tosses while the Packers got 181 yards on 14.

(CLEVELAND) - The ever-reliable Don Hutson calmly kicked a field goal from the 13-yard line in the last minute of play to give the Green Bay Packers a 17 to 14 victory over Cleveland and keep the Packers in the thick of the fight for the Western Division championship. A crowd of 13,086 customers saw the Packers eke out their three point victory over an unexpectedly tough Ram squad a team Green Bay defeated 24 to 7 a month ago at Milwaukee. Only a late drive - starting from the Packers' 30 with seven minutes to play - saved once-defeated Green Bay from a deadlock which might have cost them their chance at the divisional title. As a result of the victory and the Chicago Bears' 49 to 0 conquest of the Detroit Lions, it appeared the western crown would be decided when the Packers and Bears tangle for the second time this season at Chicago November 2. The Bears, undefeated in four starts, were responsible for Green Bay's only loss.

(DETROIT) - Don Hutson scored two touchdowns as the Packers defeated the Detroit Lions 24 to 7, as Hutson took over the all-time touchdown scoring honors in the NFL. The scores, both on passes from Cecil Isbell, sent Hutson's total, compiled in six-and-a-half seasons of league play, to 51. The previous mark of 50 was set by Vern Lewellen, another Green Bay star of past years. Lewellen collected his total from 1924 to 1932. Hutson aso kicked three extra points. Isbell connected on a scoring pass to Carl Mulleneaux, and Clarke Hinkle, veteran fullback, booted a 25-yard field goal to complete Green Bay's scoring against the outplayed Lions. Detroit's only touchdown came spectacularly in the closing minutes when Steve Belichick, promoted last week from equipment man to second string fullback, raced 77 yards with a punt return for a touchdown. Aside from that, Detroit penetrated the Packer defense no farther than the 18. The victory left Green Bay a half game behind the Chicago Bears.

November 2: Green Bay (7-1) 16, Chicago Bears (5-1) 14
(CHICAGO) - The Packers rubbed out the Bears before a record crowd. The Bear attack for three quarters was incredibly inept against the inspired Packers, who stuck to a seven and six-man line most of the game, shifting from one to the other. The champions gained 65 yards rushing, using the same offensive that previously had given them 209 points in five games and an average of 420 yards a game. Green Bay's defense in the first half was amazing, holding the Bears to a total net gain of 25 yards. The Packers wasted no time to start the game, driving 63 yards to a touchdown the first time they got possession of the ball. Two pass interference penalties cost the Bears 26 yards and Cecil Isbell sparked the drive to the four where Green Bay got a first down. Clarke Hinkle picked up two more yards, and Isbell slid off left tackle for the touchdown. Don Hutson's kick was blocked by John Siegal. The Packers, always threatening with a brilliant ground and air attack were shut out the rest of the half but got close enough twice for futile field goal efforts by Hinkle. The Packers started rolling again early in the third period, going from their own 15 to the Bear 34 before Isbell fumbled and Bill Osmanski recovered. On the first play, Hugh Gallarneau fumbled and George Svendsen recovered for the Packers. Isbell flipped a 36-yard touchdown pass to Lou Brock and a 13-0 lead. Shortly afterward Hinkle tried another field goal from the 35 but it was wide. The Packers continued to hobble the Bears completely and started another drive from their own 46. Hal Van Every, and Joe Laws ripped the line to the 35 before the Bears stiffened. Hinkle then booted a field goal which was the victory margin, kicking from the 44. Chicago then came to life, starting from their own 37. Sid Luckman passed to Dick Plasman for 16 yards and to Ray Nolting for 12 more. Luckman dashed 12 yards on a fake pass and then his toss to Ken Kavanaugh was ruled complete on the eight when Hutson knocked down the receiver. Norman Standlee smashed in for the touchdown three plays later. Minutes later, George McAfee electrified the throng when he intercepted Isbell's pass, intended for Hutson, and ran it back 66 yards to Green Bay's 15. Luckman passed to Hampton Pool for 14 yards. Nolting then scored, but the play was recalled and the Bears' penalized for offside. Nolting went over again on third down and Joe Stydahar place kicked the point, with six minutes remaining in the game. The aroused Bears stopped the Packers cold after the kickdff, forcing a punt which Bob Swisher returned 32 yards to Green Bay's 46. The Bears drove to the 36 before Luckman fumbled as he was smothered on an attempted pass, Pete Tinsley recovering the ball for Green Bay on the 44. The Bears got possession of the ball again with a minute to play.

(GREEN BAY) - Green Bay won its eighth game out of nine by coming from behind against the Cardinals at Green Bay. Bill Daddio's 27-yard field goal gave the Cards a 3-0 lead but a pass from Cecil Isbell to Don Hutson put the Packers on top and they were never headed. Clark Hinkle kicked a 35-yard field goal to give Green Bay a 10-3 lead at the half.

November 23: Green Bay (9-1) 54, Pittsburgh (1-8-1) 7
(PITTSBURGH) - Green Bay scored four TDs in six minutes in the second quarter as they routed the Steelers. Their 54 points was the highest run up in the NFL so far. Don Hutson scored a TD and kicked two extra points to run his season's scoring total to 75 points, four away from the league record set by the Bears' Jack Manders in 1934. Off to a sputtering start, the Packers began to click late in the first. The Steelers had jumped to a short-lived seven point lead after a 48-yard march climaxed by Joe Hoague's plunge from the one-inch line. Green Bay then scored 26 points in the second period, added another seven in the third and 21 more in the fourth. Statistically the Steelers fared pretty well. The Packers held only a 13 to 11 edge in first downs while the losers actually outgained Green Bay 210 yards to 155 on the ground. But eight Pittsburgh fumbles, six recovered by the Packers, proved costly and the Packer passing attack, clicking on 11 out of 19, was a deadly weapon.

November 30: Green Bay (10-1) 22, Washington (5-5) 17
(WASHINGTON) - Led by Don Hutson, Green Bay struck through the air in the second half to knock off Washington and clinch a tie for the Western Division title after trailing 17-0 at the half. Hutson scored three touchdowns and kicked two extra points to run his season total to 95 points, shattering the old record of 79. Hutson stretched his lifetime scoring mark to 395 points in seven seasons, cracking Manders' record of 385. His three touchdowns gave him 12 for the year, or one better than the season mark set by Washington's Andy Farkas in 1939. Cecil Isbell completed 14 passes, most of them to Hutson, sending his yardage total to 1,488. Washington's Sammy Baugh set the old mark of 1,367 yards last year. The Redskins were hot for two periods. Sparked by Frank Filchock and Ed Justice, they marched 65 yards to a touchdown before the game was five minutes old. Filchock crashed over tackle for the score. Another Washington drive, featuring Filchock and Bob Seymour, bogged down on the Packer 21 and Bob Masterson booted a field goal from the 28. Baugh fired a 41-yard pass to Seymour on the Green Bay 10 and the Redskins' fullback fought his way over for the touchdown in the second period. Ky Aldrich booted the extra point. Early in the third quarter, the Packers flew from their own 35 across the Washington goal line on five passes from Cecil Isbell to Hutson. A few minutes later, George Svendson intercepted one of Baugh's passes and dashed 20 yards to the Washington 15. Clarke Hinkle cracked through for eight and then Isbell flipped to Hutson for the touchdown. Isbell fired three straight passes to move from his own 35 to the Redskins 46 in the fourth quarter. He faded back on the following play and rifled the ball to Hutson, who speared it and evaded two Redskin tacklers to score. Green Bay added two points when Washington's Ray Hare picked up the kickoff on his own three and stepped back over the goal line for a safety.

(CHICAGO) - The game was played just one week after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and the temperature at Wrigley Field was a frigid 16 degrees. Over 43,000 fans were on hand to view the game. It started out well for the Packers. The Bears fumbled the opening kickoff, and the Packers recovered. Fullback Clarke Hinkle scored on a one yard run and the Packers grabbed an early 7-0 lead. On their next possession, the Bears fumbled again and Green Bay recovered on the Chicago 36 yard line. The Packer drive was stopped, and a field goal attempt was blocked. Momentum began to shift to the Bears. Late in the first quarter, the Packers punted. Hugh Gallarneau fielded it at the Bears 18 and raced 82 yards for a touchdown. The Packers blocked the extra point attempt to hold onto the lead at 7-6. Early in the second quarter, Bob Snyder kicked a 24 yard field goal to give the Bears a 9-7 lead. The Packers fumbled on their next possession, and the Bears recovered on the Green Bay 12 yard line. Four plays later, fullback Norm Standlee scored on a three yard run and it was 16-7 after the extra point. Standlee scored again on the Bears next possession, this time on a two yard run. The Packers' drive after the kickoff was stopped again. After the punt, the Bears drove 63 yards for another touchdown, with Bob Swisher scoring on a nine yard run. The Bears increased their lead to 30-7. On their last possession of the first half the Packers drove to the Bears' one yard line, but were unable to score as Packer runners were tackled for losses on the last two plays of the half. The second half of the game was dominated by the two defenses. Green Bay's only score of the half came in the third quarter, when the Packers executed a 40 yard drive that ended on a Cecil Isbell to Hal Van Every 10 yard touchdown pass. The Bears scored only once in the second half as well, on a Bob Snyder 26 yard field goal in the fourth quarter. The final score was 33-14. The Bears rushed for 277 yards in the game, while Green Bay was held to just 33 yards on 36 attempts, or less than a yard per carry. Green Bay's normally strong passing game had 222 yards, but was stopped twice on
