The Colts are one of four teams that play in the South Division of the National Football Conference. Since 2008, they have played their games at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind. Prior to that, from 1984 to 2007, they played in the RCA Dome. The Colts’ franchise began in 1953 in Baltimore before moving to Indianapolis in 1984. The Colts played in two Super Bowls while based in Baltimore — losing to the New York Jets in Super Bowl III, while defeating the Dallas Cowboys in Super Bowl V.
Since relocating to Indianapolis, the Colts have won one Super Bowl, beating the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI.
For many years, star quarterback Peyton Manning was the face of the Colts. He was the first overall pick in the 1998 draft and spent 14 seasons with the team. He led the team to two 14-2 seasons — in 2005 and 2009 - and is the team’s all-time passing leader with more than 54,000 yards.
Just as famous as Manning in his day was another star quarterback in Johnny Unitas, who led the Baltimore Colts in the 1960s. The team has retired his number 19.

The NFC South produced the worst record for a division champion last year when the Houston Texans went 9-7. The Colts finished a game back at 8-8 — a disappointing season for a team with one of the league’s premier quarterbacks, Andrew Luck.
The sixth-year pro out of Stanford heads into the season battling shoulder woes. The Colts will need Luck at his best just to have a chance at the playoffs. He threw for 31 touchdowns last year, nine shy of his career best in 2014. However, he was also picked off 13 times, which put a lot of pressure on the defence.
But the biggest problem for Luck and the Colts was 41 sacks the offensive line allowed. They must do a better job to protect their QB. He needs to stay healthy or the Colts will face another long season.
The Colts went 7-9 against the betting spread last year. Expectations have been high on the Colts in recent years. They’re record has proven otherwise. Management has hinted their plans to improve the Colts will be through the draft and not free agency. So, they’re likely to be a .500 team again this year in a weak division.
