The 1992 Philadelphia Eagles season was their 60th in the league. The team fought through adversity from the outset and improved upon their previous output of 10–6,[1] winning eleven games and returning to the playoffs after a year out.

After winning four in a row and five of their last six regular-season games, the Birds kept the momentum going and posted their first playoff victory since the 1980 NFC Championship Game, topping the Saints in New Orleans in the first round.

Season highlights included: the first 4-0 start since going 6-0 to begin the 1981 campaign, a home shutout of the Denver Broncos on September 20, a memorable seven-play goal-line stand in a 7-3 win over the Cardinals on October 25, a come-from-behind 47-34 win over the New York Giants at the Meadowlands (which included a Vai Sikahema punt return for a touchdown and his iconic boxing with the padding at the base of the goal posts), and safety Eric Allen batting away a Mark Rypien pass at the goal line to seal a playoff-spot-clinching 17-13 decision against the Washington Redskins on December 20.


Offseason

  • Eagles Running Back Herschel Walker competed in the 1992 Winter Olympics in two-man bobsled, finishing seventh.[2]
  • Tragedy struck the team when, on June 25, 1992, defensive tackle Jerome Brown lost control of his Chevrolet Corvette at high speed before crashing into an electric pole, killing Brown and his nephew. As a tribute to him, the team retired his jersey in the season opener and wore memorial patches with is name and number. They also dedicated the season to him by beginning the phrase "Bring it home for Jerome" as their call to win a super bowl in his honor.

NFL Draft

The Eagles had a 10–6 record in 1991 and tied with three other teams. Because of this they selected the 16th to 20th pick on a rotating basis in the 12 rounds. They traded away their 1st round pick earlier and was made by the Dallas Cowboys. With their pick in the second round they chose Siran Stacy, a running back out of the University of Alabama. The Eagles selected 12 players over the 12 rounds.
