The 1965 NFL playoffs determined the champion of the National Football League. Although a single championship game between conference winners was the current format for the league, a tie in the Western Conference standings between the Green Bay Packers and Baltimore Colts necessitated a divisional playoff game. Although the championship game was played in 1966, it is reckoned as part of the 1965 NFL season. The 1965 Championship Game was the latest date for an NFL Championship Game to that point, and the first time in league history that the game was held after all of the college bowl games.

The Playoff Bowl (a consolation game between the second place team from each conference) for the 1965 season took place on January 9, 1966. The Colts defeated the Dallas Cowboys, 35-3.
