The 1993 Cincinnati Bengals season was the team's 26th year in professional football and its 24th with the National Football League. The David Klingler experiment at starting Quarterback got off to a quick start, as the Bengals lost their first ten games for the second of three 0–8 starts in four seasons.

The Bengals would finally get their first win against the Los Angeles Raiders 16–10, at Riverfront Stadium, but were the last winless team for the first of two consecutive years – as of the 2012 season, an ignominy suffered by no franchise since.[1] After dropping their next two games, the Bengals closed the season by winning twice before losing their closer to a disappointing Saints outfit to finish with their second 3–13 season in three years.[2]
