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 50th season, a special anniversary logo was designed and each player wore a patch on their jerseys with this logo throughout the season.

As per the agreement made during the 1967 realignment, the New Orleans Saints and the New York Giants switched divisions again, returning back to the 1967 alignment.

The season ended when the Minnesota Vikings defeated the Cleveland Browns in the NFL Championship Game, only to be defeated by the American Football League's Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl IV.

Division races

The Eastern Conference was split into the Capitol and Century Divisions, and the Western Conference had the Coastal and Central Divisions. In the past, if two teams were tied for the division lead at season's end, a one-game playoff was conducted to break the tie. Starting in 1967, a tiebreaking system was implemented that started with net points in head-to-head competition, followed by which team that had less recently been in a title game . As such, only one team in a division would be the division winner, even if the won-lost record was the same.
