The 1982 regular season was shortened by a lockout, but that did not stop the Washington Redskins from rolling to an 8-1 record. The franchise looked poised to make it to their second Super Bowl appearance. The Dallas Cowboys would met them in the NFC Championship and the Redskins clung to a seven point lead in the fourth quarter. The game was finally sealed by a Darryl Grant pick six, sending Washington to Super Bowl they would go on to win.
The 1982 Washington Redskins season was the team's 50th in the National Football League, and 45th in Washington, D.C.. Although the Redskins lost all their preseason games, they were to advance from an 8–8 record the previous season to become the only team in NFL History to win the Super Bowl after not winning a pre-season game. Only the 1990 Buffalo Bills and the 2000 New York Giants have since made it to the Super Bowl after a winless pre-season.
The 1982 NFL season was shortened from sixteen games per team to nine because of a players’ strike. The NFL adopted a special 16-team playoff tournament; eight teams from each conference were seeded 1–8, and division standings were ignored. Washington had the best record in the NFC, and were the number one seed in the conference for the playoff tournament.
The Redskins marched through the NFC playoffs, beating each of their opponents by an average of 19 points. In a rematch of Washington's only prior Super Bowl appearance ten years prior, the Redskins – in a game famous for Washington's "70 Chip’ play on fourth-and-1 – went on to beat the Miami Dolphins 27–17 to win Super Bowl XVII. It was the Redskins’ first ever Super Bowl victory, and their first NFL Championship in forty years. Combining the post-season and their first Super Bowl victory, the Redskins finished the season with an overall record of 12–1.
