The 1992 Washington 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.
