OTD December 18 - 1932 Chicago Bears
30 / 40
Pro Football Hall of Fame

1932: The Chicago Bears defeat the Portsmouth Spartans 9-0 in the first ever NFL playoff game. Because of a blizzard, the game was moved from Wrigley Field to the Chicago Stadium, the field measuring 80 yards long. Although the game would later be described as the first NFL Championship Game, that name would not officially be used until the following year's championship game between the Bears and the New York Giants.
