The 1957 Baltimore Colts season was the fifth season for the team in the National Football League. The Baltimore Colts finished the National Football League's 1957 season with a record of 7 wins and 5 losses and finished third in the Western Conference.

The 1957 season was the first in which the Colts wore their trademark "horseshoe" logo in the middle of their helmet.[1] The team had experimented with placement of the logo on other parts of the helmet, but 1957 was the year in which they used the logo that the Colts franchise still uses to this day.
