The 1932 Green Bay Packers season was their 13th in the National Football League. The club posted a 10–3–1 record under coach Curly Lambeau, earning them a 2nd-place finish despite winning three more games than the champion Chicago Bears. With only one loss, the Bears' winning percentage was calculated by the league at .875, as ties were discarded, compared to the Packers' .769.

The Bears and Portsmouth Spartans were tied for first at the end of the season and played an extra game; the winner was the league champion and the loser finished in third in the standings. The game was played indoors on a shortened field and the Bears won, 9–0.

In 1933, the NFL divided into two divisions and began an annual NFL championship game to decide the league's crown.
