The 1967 Baltimore Colts season was the 15th season for the team in the National Football League. They ended the regular season with a record of 11 wins, 1 loss, and 2 ties. This was the same record the Los Angeles Rams achieved. Since the Rams were in the same division, the Colts lost the tie based on point differential in head-to-head games and thus did not make the playoffs.

The Colts' win percentage of .917 (The NFL did not count ties for such purposes until 1972) is the best in North American pro sports history for a team that did not make the playoffs
