The 1993 Minnesota Vikings season was the team's 33rd in the National Football League. The Vikings finished with a record of nine wins and seven losses. With a record of 9-7, the team was unable to match the success of the previous season. Their season ended with a 17-10 loss to the New York Giants in the Wild Card round.

Newly acquired Jim McMahon, who was known for helping the Chicago Bears win the Super Bowl in 1985, was the Vikings starting quarterback for the season. He spent only one year with the team and after the season, the rebuilding Vikings decided not to renew McMahon's contract and he would go on to sign with other teams. The Vikings later acquired Warren Moon for next season.

Cris Carter and John Randle were named to play in the Pro Bowl after the season. It was the first Pro Bowl for both future Hall of Famers.

Terry Allen, who had a breakout season last year, missed the entire season after tearing his ACL in practice.
