Recap of the 1993 NFL Football Season
The 1993 campaign was the NFL’s 74thseason . In April of that year the draft got the season under way with the always dramatic event. With the #1 pick in the draft in 1993 the New England Patriots chose Drew Bledsoe of Washington State. The 1st round was running back heavy as three potential hall of famers: Robert Smith, Jerome Bettis and Garrison Hearst were selected. Defensive threat Michael Strahan was taken 40th by the New York Giants. In the later rounds of the 1993 draft, pro-bowlers Mark Brunell (118th) and Trent Green (222) were selected by Green Bay and San Diego respectively. The 1992 Heisman Trophy winner, Gino Toretta, was not taken until the 7th round by the Minnesota Vikings.
In 1993 the league voted to change the length of the regular season to 18 weeks with two bye weeks. However the teams did not like this as they thought that having two weeks off was too disruptive to their preparation. The league shortened the regular season back to 17 weeks after the season was over. 1993 also marked the beginning of the FOX Network’s TV contract with the NFL.
The Buffalo Bills were crushed for the third consecutive year in 1992 but did not have any plans of giving up that easily. The Bills marched right back out of their black hole to sit on top of the AFC once again. The Houston Oilers and the surprise of Joe Montana taking the reigns in Kansas City barreled through the competition in the regular season. Los Angeles, Pittsburgh and Denver rounded out the playoff picture for the AFC. The Dallas Cowboys, for the second straight year, bombarded the NFC with their gargantuan offense and spectacular defense to gain the #1 seed in the playoffs. San Francisco and Detroit were hot on their tails though both going 10-6. The Giants, Vikings and Packers all headed into the postseason to have a chance to face the Super Bowl champs.
John Elway had a career year in 1993 passing for over 4,000 yards and leading the league in completions and attempts. He also came in second behind Steve Young in touchdowns. Brett Favre and Steve Young again were the perennials sitting atop the statistics leaders. 1993 was Joe Montana’s second year with the Chiefs and he guided them to the playoffs adding to his already stellar career. Emmitt Smith took home the rushing crown for the second straight season gaining close to 1,500 yards on the ground. Rookie Jerome Bettis surprised all by coming in second with Thurman Thomas close behind him. Veteran rusher Marcus Allen broke a streak of less than stellar seasons by rushing for 12 touchdowns in 1993. Sterling Sharpe led all receivers in 1993 by catching 112 balls for the Packers. Jerry Rice also had another hall of fame year grabbing 98 passes for 1,503 yards and 15 touchdowns.
The New York Giants had the best defense in the league in 1993 allowing only 205 points and 4,663 yards leading the team to the playoffs for the first time since they won the Super Bowl in 1990.
Emmitt Smith took home the league MVP award after his amazing year for the Dallas Cowboys. Veteran receiver Jerry Rice took home the Offensive Player of the Year Award and Defensive Back Rod Woodson garnered Defensive Player of the Year honors. The Rams rookie sensation Jerome Bettis was named Offensive Rookie of the year and Defensive Tackle Dana Stubblefield from the 49ers won Defensive Rookie of the Year as he grabbed 10.5 sacks in his first year.
Dallas busted up the Buffalo Bills again for the second consecutive year 30-13. The Bills head their head low as they went home losing the big game for the fourth consecutive year. Emmitt Smith was named the MVP as he rushed for 132 yards and 2 touchdowns.
