The 1969 NFL season was the 50th regular season of the National Football League, and the last one before the AFL-NFL Merger. To honor the NFL’s fiftieth season, a special anniversary logo was designed and each player wore a patch on their jerseys with this logo throughout the season.
The season ended when the Minnesota Vikings defeated the Cleveland Browns in the NFL championship game, earning the right to face the American Football League‘s Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl IV in New Orleans Tulane Stadium. This was the last awarding of the Ed Thorp Memorial Trophy to the NFL champion; the trophy was introduced 35 years earlier in 1934. As was the case the previous season, the NFL Champion was not crowned as the world champion because of the Vikings’ 23-7 loss to the Chiefs in the Super Bowl. This occurrence can no longer happen, as the AFL and the NFL merged with each other the following season (1970), with 2 separate conferences (the AFC and the NFC) both playing together in the same league (the NFL), with the 2 conference champions playing each other every year in the Super Bowl.
