Boyd Dowler (born October 18, 1937 in Rock Springs, Wyoming) was a wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL) who played 11 seasons for the Packers from 1959-69. Dowler played college football at the University of Colorado.

A two-time Pro Bowler in 1965 and 1967, Dowler was a key contributor on the Packers Dynasty in the 1960s, assisting the team to five NFL championship wins, including victories in Super Bowl I and Super Bowl II. Dowler was knocked out of the game early in the first quarter of Super Bowl I with a shoulder injury (setting the stage for Max McGee's heroics), but made a big impact in Super Bowl II, catching a 62-yard touchdown reception in the first half. He finished the game as the top receiver for the Packers, with two receptions for 71 yards and a touchdown. Dowler is a member of the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, and the NFL 1960s All-Decade Team.

After eleven seasons with the Packers ending in 1969, Dowler played one year for the Washington Redskins in 1971.

Dowler retired with a career record of 474 receptions for 7,270 yards and 40 touchdowns. He led the Packers in receptions for seven seasons. He is currently a scout for the Atlanta Falcons.
