The 1975 Baltimore Colts season was the 23rd season for the team in the National Football League. The Baltimore Colts finished the National Football League's 1975 season with a record of 10 wins and 4 losses, and finished tied for first in the AFC East division with the Miami Dolphins. However, the Colts won the division tiebreaker with Miami based on a head-to-head sweep (2–0). The Colts started the season losing four of their first five games, before sweeping their final nine games and narrowly beating out Miami for the division title.

The 1975 Colts coaching staff included 23-year-old assistant Bill Belichick, his first association with an NFL team and first coaching position. Belichick would go on to win two Super Bowls as defensive coordinator with the New York Giants in 1986 and 1990, and three more as head coach of the New England Patriots in 2001, 2003 and 2004.
