The 1936 NFL Championship Game was the 4th championship game played in the history of the National Football League. The game took place on December 13, 1936, at Polo Grounds in New York City, making it the first NFL title game held on a neutral field.The Eastern Division champion Boston Redskins' owner George Preston Marshall moved the game out of Boston's Fenway Park to New York, as he had previously announced plans to move his team to Washington, D. C. the following year. This was the first championship game for both the Redskins and the Western Division champion Green Bay Packers. The game was the first NFL title contest won by the Packers under coach Curly Lambeau, after winning league championships awarded by league standing in 1929, 1930 and 1931.[1]
