The 1982 Green Bay Packers season was their 62nd season in the National Football League, which was a strike-shortened season. The club posted a 5-3-1 record under coach Bart Starr. Due to the strike, the NFL ignored divisions and placed eight teams from each conference into the playoffs. The Packers finished the season in 3rd place which earned them a playoff berth. The Packers beat the Cardinals 41-16, but lost to the Dallas Cowboys 37-26 in the second round. Their playoff berth was the first for the Packers in nine seasons.
