The history of the Indianapolis Colts from Wikipedia.
The Indianapolis Colts are a professional American football team based in Indianapolis, Indiana and play their home games at Lucas Oil Stadium. The team is part of the South Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) in the National Football League (NFL). The team was officially founded as the Baltimore Colts in 1953 and were based in Baltimore, Maryland until the team relocated to Indianapolis in 1984.
The Colts were members of the National Football League from their founding, however, they were one of three teams to switch to the AFC following the 1970 merger. While in Baltimore the team advanced to the postseason ten times and won three NFL Championship games in 1958, 1959 and 1968. The Colts had two Super Bowl appearances while in Baltimore, losing to the New York Jets in Super Bowl III, while defeating the Dallas Cowboys in Super Bowl V.
The Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and have since appeared in the playoffs fourteen times, with two conference championships and one Super Bowl championship coming against the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI. It was under quarterback Peyton Manning that the Colts saw their greatest success with the team appearing in the playoffs nine consecutive seasons, which is tied for a league record.
In 1953, a Baltimore based group led by Carroll Rosenbloom won the rights to a new Baltimore National Football League franchise. Rosenbloom was awarded the remains of the Dallas Texans who had a long and winding history starting as the Boston Yanks in 1944 who later merged with the Brooklyn Tigers and were previously known as the Dayton Triangles, an original NFL team established in 1913. The team would later became the Yanks in 1950, and many of the players from the New York Yankees of the All-America Football Conference were added to the team. The Yanks moved to Dallas after the 1951 season, but played their final two "home" games of the 1952 season at the Rubber Bowl in Akron, Ohio. However, the NFL considers the Texans and Colts to be separate teams, although many of those teams shared the same colors of blue and white.
The Colts played their first season in Baltimore in 1953, where the team complied a 3–9 record under first year head coach Keith Molesworth. The franchise struggled during the first few years in Baltimore, with the team not achieving their first winning record until the 1957 season. However, under head coach Weeb Ewbank and the leadership of quarterback Johnny Unitas, the Colts would go onto a 9–3 record during the 1958 season and reached the NFL Championship Game for the first time in their history by winning the NFL Western Conference. The Colts faced the New York Giants in the 1958 NFL Championship Game in what is considered to be among the greatest contests in professional football history. The Colts defeated the Giants 23–17 in the first game ever to utilize the overtime rule and a game seen by 45 million people.
