The 1933 NFL season was the 14th regular season of the National Football League.
Because of the success of the Playoff Game the year before, the league divided its teams into two divisions for the first time, with the winners of each division playing in a Championship Game to determine the NFL Champion.
Three new teams joined the league: the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Cincinnati Reds, while the Boston Braves changed their name to the Boston Redskins and the Staten Island Stapletons, while still scheduling games against league teams, left the league.
The season ended when the Chicago Bears defeated the New York Giants in the first ever NFL Championship Game.
Due to the success of the 1932 NFL Playoff Game, the league stopped using the exact rules of college football and started to develop its own revisions:
Note: Tie games were not officially counted in the standings until 1972.
