The 1993 Washington Redskins began with the team trying to improve on their 9–7 record from 1992. Head coach Joe Gibbs retired following the 1992 season and the Redskins promoted his defensive coordinator, Richie Petitbon, to be the head coach. The Redskins' aging core struggled with injury while numerous key players (Gary Clark, Wilber Marshall, Martin Mayhew, Jumpy Geathers, and Fred Stokes) left the team via free agency. Management tried to ease the losses by signing players like Carl Banks, Tim McGee, Al Noga, and Rick Graf, but none had a major impact on the team. The team finished the season with a 4–12 record and missed the playoffs. Petitbon was fired following the season.

It was the only season in Redskins history where no player was selected to the Pro Bowl.
