Franchise history

The Colts are members of the American Football Conference East division.

Following a move from Miami, Florida, the Colts began play in 1946 in Baltimore, Maryland. The Baltimore Colts were one of the most dominating teams in NFL history. In 1958, the Colts defeated the New York Giants in the NFL championship game, a game which is sometimes called "The Greatest Game Ever Played."

Having fallen on hard times, and wanting a new stadium, Robert Irsay moved the team to Indianapolis in 1984.

Since 1984, the Colts have had mixed success at best.
