The 1990 Seattle Seahawks season was the team's 15th season with the National Football League. The team improved on its 7-9 record from 1989, finishing 9-7. Despite the winning record, the Seahawks missed the postseason. Seattle would start the season 0-3 before upsetting the Cincinnati Bengals at home 31-16 to pick up their first win of the season. After they traded wins and losses in their next 5 games, Seattle would win 3 straight to sit at 7-6. However, a loss to the Dolphins in Miami ended the Seahawks hopes for a playoff berth, as they were eliminated with a 7-7 record. They won their final 2 games of the season against the Broncos and Lions to finish at 9-7.
