The 1962 National Football League championship game was the 30th NFL title game. The game was played on December 30, 1962 at Yankee Stadium in New York, New York. The attendance for the game was 64,892.

The 1962 game was a rematch of the 1961 championship. The Eastern Conference champions New York Giants (12-2) against the Western Conference Green Bay Packers (13-1). It was played in 13 degree temperatures with 40 miles per hour winds.

A few hours after this game, Packers linebacker Ray Nitschke, who was the game's Most Valuable Player, appeared on "What's My Line?" wearing thick eyeglasses. Panelists Martin Gabel and Bennett Cerf, both Giants fans, recognized him. Ed Sabol's film company Blair Motion Pictures paid $3,000 for the film rights for the game, the company would later become NFL Films.
