The Indianapolis Colts are a professional American football team based in Indianapolis, Indiana. The team is part of the South Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) in the National Football League (NFL). Proir to moving to Indianapolis from Baltimore, the Colts won four NFL Championships, including Super Bowl V. As the Indianapolis Colts, the team won Super Bowl XLI in 2006 against the Chicago Bears. The Baltimore Colts were the first NFL team to have cheerleaders, and a marching band.

The Colts moved from Baltimore in 1984, and began their stay in Indianapolis winning 90 of 228 games through the 1997 season, including 5 playoff games. Since Jim Irsay assumed control of the franchise in 1998 after the death of his father, Robert Irsay, the team has become the first in league history to win 12 games or more in five consecutive seasons - extending this record to six after the 2008 season. The Colts are also the first NFL team to beat all of the other 31 NFL teams.
