The 1986 Indianapolis Colts season was the 34th season for the team in the National Football League and third in Indianapolis. The Indianapolis Colts finished the National Football League's 1986 season with a record of 3 wins and 13 losses, and finished 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. 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, then won their last two games, to finish with three wins on the season.
