History

The Indianapolis Colts play in the American Football Conference in the NFL. The club is one of only three franchises that played in the NFL and became members of the AFC when the NFL and AFL merged in 1970. The Colts originally played in Baltimore as members of the All America Football Conference from 1947 until 1950 when the AAFC merged with the NFL. However, in 1951, the league dissolved the franchise. The fans in Baltimore protested the loss of their football club, and in 1953 the NFL awarded the city a new franchise. The Dallas Texans were relocated to Baltimore and renamed the Colts. The team was named the Colts because of Baltimore’s rich horse racing tradition.

In 1958, the Colts were led by star quarterback Johnny Unitas and won the NFL Championship in what many consider the greatest NFL game ever played. They would repeat as NFL champions the following season but would suffer a shocking loss to the New York Jets in the Super Bowl. In 1970, after the NFL and AFL merged, the Colts would claim their first Super Bowl title. They would go on to win division titles in 1975, '76, and '77 but lose in the playoffs. The club then went into decline both on the field and in the stands as attendance began to drop off.

Between the 1983 and 1984 seasons, the Colts would relocate to Indianapolis. The franchise literally moved in the middle of the night because the city of Baltimore was attempting to take legal measures to keep the team there. The city was ultimately not successful and the Colts began play in Indianapolis in 1984.

The team continued to struggle on the field until quarterback Payton Manning was drafted in 1998. Manning quickly became a star, leading the Colts to nine consecutive playoff appearances, including two Super Bowl appearances and one Super Bowl victory. Manning played for the franchise for thirteen seasons before he was sidelined by injury in 2010 and released in 2012.

The Baltimore Colts played their home games in Memorial Stadium during their years in Baltimore and at the RCA dome from 1984 to 2008 in Indianapolis. The club currently plays at Lucas Oil Stadium, which opened in 2008. The franchise was the first team in the NFL to have cheerleaders and a marching band- a tradition that started while in Baltimore. The Colts have won three NFL Championships and two Super Bowls as of 2013.
