The 1991 Indianapolis Colts season was the 39th season for the team in the National Football League and eighth in Indianapolis. The Indianapolis Colts finished the National Football League's 1991 season with a record of 1 win and 15 losses, and finished fifth in the AFC East division. The 1–15 record was one of the worst in NFL History and just one point away from the first 0–16 season in the NFL.

Also in 1991, the Colts scored the fewest points up to that point (143) of any team in NFL history in a 16-game schedule.[1][2]
