The 1993 Indianapolis Colts season was the 41st season for the team in the National Football League and tenth in Indianapolis. The Indianapolis Colts finished the National Football League's 1993 season with a record of 4 wins and 12 losses, and finished fifth in the AFC East division. The Colts would get off to a fast 2-1 start. However, after that, the Colts would go into a tailspin for the rest of the season, losing 11 of their final 13 games. The Colts offense was really abysmal during the season, as they would only score 189 points all season, the fewest in the league, and 3 of their 4 wins were by a 9 to 6 tally. Their only other win with not such a score was their 23-10 win over the Cleveland Browns in week 4. For the first time in league history, all NFL teams played their 16-game schedule over a span of 18 weeks.
