The 1992Washington Redskins began with the team trying to win their second Super Bowl in a row, following Super Bowl XXVI. The Redskins declined by five wins to a record of nine wins and seven losses, but still made the postseason. Nonetheless, a lean period for the Redskins was to follow; they were not to make the postseason again until 1999 and have never seriously contended for another Super Bowl despite three more playoff appearances. This season would be Joe Gibbs final season coaching the Washington Redskins until he returned in 2004 for four seasons. Gibbs was the most successful coach in Redskins history, leading the team to three Super Bowl victories (1982, 1987, 1991), and eight playoff berths in eleven seasons (1981-1992).
