6:00 pm GMT , 12/6

It was an eventful offseason for the Indianapolis Colts who brought in Philip Rivers to see what they can get out of him for the 2020 season. One of the major trades went down between Indy and San Francisco, with the Colts landing DeForest Buckner. They also brought in Xavier Rhodes to see if they can revive his career after a down year with Minnesota. The draft was all about the offensive side as they grabbed Michael Pittman and Jonathan Taylor. Pittman projects to be a force in year one pairing him with T.Y. Hilton and Parris Campbell.

Colts FAQ

The Colts were capsized by Andrew Luck's sudden retirement last season, and while Jacoby Brissett performed admirably as the starter, the Colts only managed to field the 16th-highest-scoring offense in football. Philip Rivers was signed in free agency to be the team's starting quarterback after 14 years as the starter for the San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers. Along with Rivers, the Colts brought in DeForest Buckner, the former 49ers' defensive lineman, and Xavier Rhodes, the former Vikings' cornerback, both of whom should make a significant difference in helping the defense improve. The Colts have one of the best offensive lines in the NFL which helped the team produce a top ten rushing offense in yards and touchdowns last year. Despite not having a first-round pick this year, the Colts had a great draft including some high-upside players in wide receiver Michael Pittman and running back Jonathan Taylor. Indianapolis has high expectations for this season after finishing 7-9 last year and significantly improving their roster on both sides of the ball.

Who is the Highest Paid Colts Player?

Heading into the 2020-21 season, the Colts' highest-paid player is Philip Rivers in terms of biggest cap hit. The second-highest-paid player is DeForest Buckner, who was also acquired this offseason. The Colts have two quarterbacks with a $20+ million cap hit which makes their cap situation difficult.

Who Owns the Indianapolis Colts?

The Colts' current owner, Jim Irsay, is a former football player. His father, Robert Irsay, acquired the Baltimore Colts in 1972 when he purchased the Los Angeles Rams and swapped franchises with the then-Rams owner. Robert Irsay passed the franchise on to his son Jim after his death in 1997.

Who Is the Colts Head Coach?

Frank Reich is entering his third season as the Colts' head coach, and he led the team to the playoffs in his first season. Reich served as an offensive coordinator for a handful of seasons for the Eagles and Chargers, winning the Super Bowl with the Eagles.

How Much Cap Space do the Colts Have?

The Colts have just over $22.5 million in cap space heading into the 2020 season, which is the 7th-most in the NFL. General manager Chris Ballard has done a great job of maintaining the team's cap space over the years with some excellent draft picks.

Who Is the Colts' Starting Quarterback this Season?

Philip Rivers signed a one-year contract this past offseason with the Colts which will make him the starting quarterback this season. He previously played sixteen seasons as the Chargers' starter. Jacoby Brissett was the starter last season and is still on the roster.

Who is the Youngest Player on the Colts?

The Colts drafted three players this season who are 21 years old in Jonathan Taylor, a second-round running back out of Wisconsin, Julian Blackmon, a third-round safety out of Utah, and Dezmon Patmon, a sixth-round wide receiver out of Washington State - they are the youngest players on the roster.

Who is the Oldest Player on the Colts?

Philip Rivers, the Colts' new starting quarterback, is 38 years old and he's the oldest player on the team's roster. He's only signed to a one-year contract, so the team isn't invested in him long-term, but his age and declined play from last season are a bit concerning for the team.

The Colts – Carrying Success from Baltimore to Indianapolis

Many might envision Indiana sports fans possessing a strong affinity for their basketball. Sure, Hoosier State folks love their hoops. However, Indiana loves football as well. They have the recent national prevalence of their namesake, IU Hoosiers, plus the legendary success of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish from South Bend. However, since 1984, Indiana has also been a state with a successful NFL franchise. When the Colts packed up their wagons and moved to Indianapolis, sports betting fans in the state had a whole new experience awaiting them. Cheering on your favorite team is great, but betting on your favorite team adds a higher level of excitement. Indiana sports betting allows Hoosier football fans to bet on their Colts. Let's look back at the Colts' history and a few exceptional teams.

Indianapolis Colts History

A new franchise was granted in 1953 to the City of Baltimore. This would be the first home of the Colts NFL football team. The Baltimore version of the Colts won back-to-back NFL Championships in 1958 and 1959. They won a third NFL Title before losing to the New York Jets in the 1969 Super Bowl. The Colts would win the franchise's first Super Bowl Championship the following year. There would be minimal success for the Colts across their final 13 seasons in Baltimore.

In 1983, owner Jim Irsay received league permission to move the Colts to Indianapolis. While success was not immediate, the Indianapolis Colts have developed an avid fan base in their new home state. There was a single playoff appearance during the Colts' first decade in Indiana, but all that changed in 1995. A pair of successful seasons were followed by a total of 6 victories out of 32 games across two years. Indianapolis took a young quarterback number one in the 1998 draft. Starting in 1999, Indianapolis missed the AFC playoffs only two times up until 2014. During this run the Colts played in two Super Bowls, winning the city's only professional championship. Let's look at a few of the Colts most successful seasons in Indianapolis.

Indianapolis Colts Most Successful Season

One mark of excellence in the NFL is how many wins a team earns during a season. However, the pinnacle of excellence is which team comes out on top at the end of the "second season". When the playoffs start, other than for determining home-field advantage, regular-season wins are meaningless. Nevertheless, teams that win during the regular season usually get a spot in the playoffs. That's where every Super Bowl Champion started their run. A few of the Colts most memorable seasons would have won a futures bet on total wins on the William Hill Indiana sportsbook. However, picking the Colts to win it all wouldn't have been a winner.

Before they left Baltimore, the Colts won three National Football League Championships and one Super Bowl Title. In their first 11 years in Indianapolis, the Colts would have three winning seasons and make a single playoff appearance. After a break-even eight-win season in 1994, the Colts would post nine wins the following years to make the playoffs. The 1995 Colts turned a few heads and would have been an excellent bet using the high-risk/high-reward betting strategy on PointsBet Indiana. Indianapolis beat the spread and upset the Chiefs to earn a spot against Pittsburgh in the AFC Championship game. Taking the Colts and the points on BetMGM Indiana would have been a winner, but unfortunately, the Colts as a team were not.

Two abysmal 13-loss seasons would follow the Colts inching within one game of the Super Bowl. The 1997 season earned Indianapolis the number one pick in the NFL draft. On that day, the Colts' fortunes changed. They added a fellow named Peyton Manning. Manning's rookie campaign would be the second 13-loss season, but things would change in 1999. The Colts did a complete reversal, winning 13 games. Indianapolis was the number two seed in the AFC, but could not get past the Tennessee Titans, losing a heartbreaking three-point divisional-round game. Indianapolis would win 10 games again the following season, but fall to a disappointing 6-10 mark in 2001. The Colts would not fall below double-digit wins for the rest of Manning's Indianapolis career.

The Manning-led Colts would have four 12-win seasons, a pair of 14-win years, sandwiched around another 13-win campaign in 2007. However, maybe the most memorable season for Indiana football fans was one of the 12-win years. In 2006, a bet with one of Indiana's sportsbooks for the Colts to go all-the-way would have been a big payday. Manning would guide the AFC Central Champion Colts through the playoffs to a face-off with the Chicago Bears. Indianapolis would win its first and only Super Bowl title. After another string of three straight 11-win seasons from 2012 to 2014, the Colts managed only one winning season across the next five, a 10-win year that marked the only playoff appearance during this stretch. A 14-win year in the NFL is a success, but bringing home the Lombardi Trophy is also the pinnacle mark of pro football success. Indianapolis has one, but the Colts are gradually rebuilding their roster as a viable Super Bowl contender. Indiana sports fans can now follow their Colts and add a little excitement to each game and season with a wager.
