An NFL season-high 35,000 fans at the Polo Grounds witness the Packers beat the Giants for the third straight year, 14-7, to complete a two-game sweep of New York on the season, putting Green Bay on track for its third straight NFL crown.

The Packers finish the season 12-2 with 291 total points to their opponents’ 87. Half of the 12 victories are by at least a 20-point margin.

During the three-year run of league titles, the Packers are a drawing card that plays in front of the two largest, and three of the six largest, crowds in the league for any NFL games, a crucial element to the team’s survival.
