The 1947 National Football League Championship game was the 15th annual championship game and was held December 28, 1947 at Comiskey Park in Chicago. The attendance was 30,759. The game featured the Western Division champion Chicago Cardinals (9–3) and the Eastern Division champion Philadelphia Eagles (8–4). The Eagles had the week earlier defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 21–0 to determine the championship of the east. Both the Eagles and Cardinals were making their first appearance in the championship game.

The Cardinals (later moved to St. Louis and now in Arizona) have not won a championship since, a 66 year drought that is currently the longest in the NFL.
