The 1974 Green Bay Packers season was their 56th season overall and their 54th season in the National Football League. The club posted a 6–8 record under fourth-year head coach Dan Devine, a consecutive third-place finish in the NFC Central division. The Packers lost their last three games, all to non-playoff teams.
With a year remaining on his five-year contract, Devine resigned a day after the last game of the regular season and returned to college football at Notre Dame, following the sudden retirement of Ara Parseghian. Devine was succeeded as head coach at Green Bay by hall of fame quarterback Bart Starr, hired on Christmas Eve.
