|1986 Indianapolis Colts season|
|Head coach||Rod Dowhower
|General manager||Jim Irsay|
|Home field||Hoosier Dome|
|Division place||5th AFC East|
|Playoff finish||did not qualify|
The 1986 Indianapolis Colts season was the 34th season for the team in the National Football League (NFL) and third in Indianapolis. The team finished the year with a record of 3 wins and 13 losses, and fifth in the AFC East division.
The 1986 Colts were the last team until the 2007 Miami Dolphins to lose their first thirteen games in a season. Head Coach Rod Dowhower was fired with three games left in the season and was replaced by Ron Meyer. It appeared that the Colts could be on their way to the NFL's first anti-perfect season since the 1976 Buccaneers, until the Colts defeated the Atlanta Falcons 28–13 in Week Fourteen. They then won their last two games, to finish with three wins on the season. The Colts are the only team in NFL history to win the remainder of their games after starting winless.
