The 1992 Seattle Seahawks season was the team's 17th season with the National Football League. The 1992 season was the first season for head coach Tom Flores.

The Seahawks' 140 points (8.8 points per game) scored in the regular season is the lowest total for any team playing a 16-game season. For comparison, the 2008 Detroit Lions, who went winless, scored 268 points, nearly double. Long-time quarterback Dave Krieg had left Seattle for the rival Kansas City Chiefs in the offseason, leaving Seattle with Kelly Stouffer, Stan Gelbaugh and Dan McGwire (brother of Major League Baseball star Mark McGwire) as their three quarterbacks.

Football Outsiders calls Seattle's 1992 offense "the worst offense in [their ranking system's] history [from 1992 to 2010]." [1] Despite this, Football Outsiders also ranked Seattle as having the third-best defense in 1992. The Seahawks' star defensive tackle Cortez Kennedy was named the 1992 NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

Before Seattle's Monday Night Football victory over Denver in the Kingdome the Seahawks honored Pete Gross inducting him as the first member of the Ring of Honor. Gross would pass away two days later after his long bout with cancer. That game would also be the last MNF game played in the Kingdome and the last in Seattle until 2002 (the Seahawks themselves didn't appear on MNF again until Mike Holmgren's return to Green Bay in 1999).
