Taylor has been on fire over the last three games. In that span, he’s taken 45 carries for 301 rushing yards and four touchdowns (6.69 YPC) while adding seven receptions for 140 receiving yards and a receiving touchdown.
The Colts will continue to try and get Taylor the ball as much as possible. His Week 6 performance shows just how easily he can take over a game.
