But from the rubble would emerge a new power in the AFC East.Now you can relive the Colts memorable 1974 season with this guide that explores the entire year game by game, from the opening day beatdown administered by the Steelers to the end-of-season torching by Broadway Joe Namath, as told in the original newspaper stories.As usual, the Colts under owner Robert Irsay were an unpredictable circus, with coach Howard Schnellenberger being canned after just three games and a quarterback controversy involving Bert Jones and Marty Domres.

A full recap and box score from every game is included, so you can follow the exploits of the young Colts as they stumbled to a 2-12 finish while preparing to spring a giant surprise on the league the following year.As an added bonus, links to many video highlights are included to add more depth to the story of the 1974 Colts.
