The 1993 Seattle Seahawks season was the team's 18th in the National Football League (NFL). Playing under head coach and general manager Tom Flores, the team finished with a 6–10 win–loss record in the American Football Conference (AFC) West and missed the playoffs for the fifth straight season. In the first round of the 1993 NFL Draft, Seattle selected quarterback Rick Mirer, who became their starter for the 1993 season.

At the end of the season, running back Chris Warren, defensive tackle Cortez Kennedy, and safety Eugene Robinson were selected to play for the AFC in the 1994 Pro Bowl, the NFL's honorary all-star game.

Seattle began the season with an 18–12 loss to the San Diego Chargers in a game that featured no offensive touchdowns. Joe Nash scored the game's first points with a 12-yard interception return for a touchdown, on a ball tipped into the air by Cortez Kennedy.[2] Though the Seattle defense held the Chargers to no touchdowns, kicker John Carney had made six field goals to Seattle's one, as the Chargers led 18–10 in the fourth quarter.[2] With 1:25 left in the game, Mirer completed a pass to Brian Blades to the Chargers' two-yard line, but a hit by linebacker Gary Plummer made Blades lose the ball. Seattle scored a safety as the Chargers ran out the clock to win 18–12.[2] Sportswriter John Clayton noted that San Diego's game-plan was to run the football with halfback Marion Butts, and to run the ball to the left side, away from Kennedy. Clayton observed that the strategy worked against a defense he described as "tough", but mistakes by Seattle's linebackers allowed San Diego to earn "modest gains" on plays to keep drives moving.[18] The first rookie quarterback to start a Seahawks season opener, Mirer finished the game with 154 yards and completed 20 of 27 pass attempts.[2]

In their home opener, Seattle lost to the Los Angeles Raiders, 13–17.
