The Baltimore Colts were a professional football team that played in the National Football League (NFL) from 1953 to 1983. The franchise was originally founded in 1946 as the Miami Seahawks, but after just one season, it moved to Baltimore and became the Colts. The team's name was a nod to the region's rich history with horse breeding and racing.

The Colts had some remarkable years on the field, becoming one of the most successful teams in the NFL during the late 1950s and 1960s. Led by legendary quarterback Johnny Unitas, the Colts achieved great success, including a victory in Super Bowl V. This championship game, often referred to as "The Greatest Game Ever Played," is credited with helping to popularize professional football and elevate it to the status it enjoys today.

However, despite their successes, financial troubles began to plague the franchise in the 1970s. The team was sold multiple times, and the ownership changes affected the Colts' stability and ability to compete at a high level. In 1984, facing mounting financial difficulties and disputes with the city over stadium improvements, the Colts' owner made the controversial decision to relocate the team to Indianapolis. This move left Baltimore without an NFL team for over a decade until the establishment of the Baltimore Ravens in 1996.

The departure of the Colts was met with anger and disappointment from the Baltimore community, as the team had deep roots in the city and a passionate fan base. Despite their relocation, the legacy of the Baltimore Colts lives on, and the team remains an integral part of NFL history.
