Recap of the 1994 NFL Football Season
The 1994 NFL season started off in April with the excitement of the NFL draft. Notable first round picks included future hall of famers Marshall Faulk of San Diego State and Trent Dilfer of Fresno State. The #1 pick in the draft went to Cincinnati and they chose defensive tackle, Dan Wilkerson from Ohio State. Also taken in that draft were star wide receiver Isaac Bruce (33), Gus Frerotte (197) and Jamal Anderson (201). There was a host of undrafted talent also in 1994 including Jeff Garcia, Kurt Warner, and Rod Smith.
The 1994 season was the 75th year of the NFL and a special logo was sewn onto all players’ jerseys. 1994 was also the year that the Phoenix Cardinals change the name to the Arizona Cardinals to widen their audience. The NFL also sanctioned the two-point conversion allowed as an alternative to the extra point after touchdowns. Also to commemorate the 75th season, teams wore throwback jerseys as their second uniforms.
The Bills were defeated for the fourth straight year in 1993 and thought that enough as they did not make the playoffs going a paltry 7-9. The Pittsburgh Steelers dominated the AFC and made the playoffs again hoping to sit atop their division. San Diego and Miami hoped to do some damage of their own as the winds were changing in the AFC. Cleveland, New England, and Kansas City rounded out the playoff picture for the AFC. Dallas was a force to be reckoned with again as they came off their Super Bowl victory with a 12-4 record. That was not enough to unseat Steve Young and the 49ers for the #1 seed in the NFC. The NFC Central took the bulk of the playoff spots with four out of the five teams earning trips to the post season. Minnesota, Green Bay, Detroit and Chicago all went to the playoffs.
Drew Bledsoe and Dan Marino duked it out for the premier quarterback of 1994. Bledsoe led all quarterbacks in yards passing with an astonishing 4,555. Dan Marino and Warren Moon both threw for over 4,000 yards in 1994. Bledsoe also led the league in attempts and completions and was fourth in touchdowns. Barry Sanders led the league in rushing with 1,883 yards in 1994. The talk of the rushing world, however, was Indianapolis rookie Marshall Faulk who trotted for close to 1,300 yards in that same year. Emmitt Smith tan for 21 touchdowns that year as well, 9 more than the next closest. Cris Carter caught 122 passes for Minnesota in 1994 with Jerry Rice and Terence Mathis each catching over 100 balls.
The Cleveland Browns had the league’s best defense giving up a total of 204 points in the regular season.
49ers quarterback Steve Young took home the MVP award for the second time in three years in 1994. Barry Sanders was Offensive Player of the year and “Prime Time” Deion Sanders gained the league’s Defensive Player of the Year. Indianapolis’s Marshall Faulk won Offensive Rookie of the Year, and Tim Bowens of Miami took home the Defensive rookie of the year award.
San Francisco baffled the San Diego defense and won the Super Bowl easily 49-26 in Miami, Florida. Steve Young threw for six touchdowns on router to gaining his second Super Bowl MVP award.
