Recap of the 1992 NFL Football Season
The 1992 NFL Draft began the season with the Indianapolis Colts holding picks #1 and #2. Heisman Trophy winner Desmond Howard went fourth to the Washington Redskins and perennial Pro-Bowl tackle Bob Whitfield was chosen 8th by the Atlanta Falcons. That same year the comeback kid of 2005, Tommy Maddox, was drafted by the Broncos and a little known quarterback named Brad Johnson taken by Minnesota in the 9th round.
1992 also was the year that the instant replay system, started in 1986 was repealed from the league and would not be reinstated until 1999. Hurricane Andrew wreaked havoc on Florida that year and subsequently Miami had to re-align their schedule to make up a game.
The Redskins defeated the Bills in the Super Bowl the year earlier and made their mark as the premier team in the league. Unfortunately the Redskins posted a somewhat disappointing year going 9-7 and barely making the playoffs. The NFC was dominated by the San Francisco 49ers as they compiled a 14-2 record behind a pulsating offense and their newly inaugurated quarterback Steve Young. The Dallas Cowboys were hot on their tails however, ready to usher in a new dynasty with an equally explosive offense led by hall of famers Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin and Emmit Smith. The AFC and the Pittsburgh Steelers, led by new coach Bill Cowher, made the playoffs as the 1st seed. Miami, San Diego, Buffalo, Houston and Kansas City were the other teams to make the playoffs in 1992.
Dan Marino was the quarterback to catch in 1992 posting a staggering 4,116 yards passing. He also led the league in passing attempts and completions and was second in touchdowns. Troy Aikman and Steve Young posted equally impressive numbers. 1992 was the year that Brett Favre took over the starting role in Green Bay passing for over 3,000 yards and 18 touchdowns. Emmit Smith took home the rushing crown in 1992 pounding the turf for 1,713 yards and scoring 18 touchdowns for Dallas. Barry Foster of Pittsburgh surprised everyone by coming out of the wood work and running the ball for 1,690 yards. Barry Sanders and Thurman Thomas were close behind. Sterling Sharpe grabbed 108 receptions for 1,461 yards in 1992 for Green Bay as the previous season’s premier receiver, Haywood Jeffries, caught 90 respectively.
The New Orleans Saints had the best defense in the league for the 2nd season in a row allowing only 202 points in the regular season.
Steve Young gained MVP honors as well as Offensive player of the year in 1992 as the steamrolling 49ers headed into the playoffs. The Seattle Seahawks, Cortez Kennedy, was named Defensive Player of the year. Cincinnati’s Carl Pickens and Kansas City’s Dale Carter were named Rookies of the Year.
The Dallas Cowboys bombarded the Buffalo Bills 52-17 in Super Bowl 27. Troy Aikman was named MVP as he led a dismantling of the Bills defense throwing for 273 yards and 4 touchdowns. This was Buffalo’s third consecutive loss in the Super Bowl.
