The 1993 Denver Broncos season was the team's 34th year in professional football and its 24th with the National Football League.

1993 was the first year for new head coach Wade Phillips, who had been the team's defensive coordinator since 1989.

Offseason[edit]

After the 1992 season, Broncos owner Pat Bowlen fired head coach Dan Reeves, who had helmed the franchise for a dozen years. The team promoted defensive coordinator Wade Phillips—son of former Oilers and Saints coach Bum Phillips—to head coach.[1]
