Division races

The NFL teams played 12 games in the 1935 season. In the Eastern Division, the key game took place on Thanksgiving Day at Ebbetts Field in Brooklyn, as the 5-4-0 Dodgers hosted the 6-3-0 Giants. A Brooklyn win would have tied the teams at 6-4, but New York won, 21-0, eventually finishing at 8-4-0. The same Thanksgiving Day saw the Lions and the Cardinals both win, giving them records of 6-3-2 and 6-3-1 respectively, and ties didn't count. Three days later on December 1, the Lions beat Brooklyn 28-0; the Cardinals were losing to the Bears before tying them 7-7, but Detroit finished its season at 7-3-2 while the Cards were at 6-3-2. The Chicago Cardinals needed a win in order to have a chance for a playoff, and faced the Bears again on December 8. This time, the Bears won 13-0, and the Lions were the division champs.
