The 1993 Detroit Lions season was the 64th season in franchise history. The Lions improved from the 1992 season, and finished 10-6 and winning the NFC Central Division for the second time in three years.

In the playoffs, the Lions lost a heartbreaker in the Wild Card Round at home to the Green Bay Packers on a Brett Favre 40-yard touchdown pass to Sterling Sharpe with 55 seconds left.

The 1993 season was the last time they would win the NFC Central and is, as of 2019, the Lions last division championship.
