Indianapolis Colts 2022: News, Schedule, Roster, Score, Injury Report

Since being founded in Baltimore in 1953, the Colts have been a member club of the NFL. The storied franchise was one of three NFL teams to form the AFC following the 1970 merger. Their time in Baltimore was fruitful, to say the least as they advanced to the Playoffs 10 times and won 3 NFL championships.

Additionally, the Colts went 1-1 in Super Bowl appearances during their time in Baltimore, and it's clear that they were shaping up to be a legacy franchise. The relocation to Indianapolis came in 1984, and their success seemingly continued in good measure. The club accrued one Super Bowl chip, two conference championships, and made 16 playoff appearances since joining under the Indianapolis banner.

Furthermore, the club has been home to some of the most prolific stars to ever step foot onto the football field. 1998-2011 marked the Peyton Manning era, and a Super Bowl chip was also consolidated under his reign. Although he was unceremoniously released from his contract by owner Jim Irsay in 2012, his impact on Colts club history cannot be ignored.

The 2020 season saw the franchise round out a 10-5 record and a number 2 placement in the AFC South. The Colts improved upon their 7-9 2019 season with a week 13 win over the Houston Texans and are making their run towards the playoffs. They will also attempt their first AFC South title since 2014.

Logo

The Colts’ color palette was picked as blue and white to reflect professionalism, reliability, and loyalty to their fans and football. The earliest logo saw a jumping horse wearing a football helmet and holding a rugby ball. The ‘Baltimore Colts’ wording was ditched in before carrying on the iteration from 1961 to 1978.

From 1979- to the modern-day, the Indianapolis Colts went with the now-iconic horseshoe with seven white grommets. It was meant to signify luck and hope and became a signature for the franchise. The years that followed saw minor angle and contour changes, however, the essence remained the same. Finally, 2020 saw a new visual identity is added in the form of a Horseshoe taking on the letter ‘C’

Owner Achievements

James Irsay is the owner and CEO of the Colts and he inherited the club from his father Robert Irsay, who built a fortune through successful heating and air-conditioning companies. James ‘Jim’ Irsay was 12 years old when his father purchased the then ‘Baltimore Colts’.

After graduating from SMU in 1982, Jim joined the Colts’ professional staff and was named the Vice President and General Manager in 1984. He became the youngest owner in the NFL at the age of 37, following a legal battle with his stepmother over ownership. As of January 1st, 2021, Jim Irsay’s net worth was estimated at $3 billion courtesy of Forbes.
