The 1982 Baltimore Colts season was the 30th season for the team in the National Football League (NFL), and the Colts' penultimate season in Baltimore. The Colts finished the NFL's strike-shortened 1982 season without a victory, finishing with eight losses and one tie in their nine games. The Colts joined the 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the second team since the AFL-NFL merger to finish a regular season winless. They were later joined by the 2008 Detroit Lions and the 2017 Cleveland Browns (the 1976 Buccaneers, 2008 Lions and 2017 Browns, however, went winless in full-length seasons).

The NFL's 1982 season was disrupted by a strike by the league's players. In the Colts' first game after the end of the strike on November 21, they were shut out by the New York Jets 37-0. The following week, they were shut out by the Buffalo Bills 20-0, in a game in which the Colts offense never crossed the 50 yard line. But the week after that, they lost by only three points to the playoff-bound and defending AFC champion Cincinnati Bengals.

A 57-day-long players' strike reduced the 1982 season from sixteen to nine games per team. Because of the shortened season, the NFL adopted a special 16-team playoff tournament. Division standings were ignored. Eight teams from each conference were seeded 1 to 8 based on their regular season records.
