Grice had just one carry for one yard and a touchdown. It was initally called a fumble on the field, with the ball popping out as Grice stretched for the end zone. However, it was overturned and called a touchdown.
The Cardinals have been unable to get anything going on the ground the past few weeks, averaging 1.86 yards per carry in Arizona's last two outings.

Williams seems to be the best rusher of the group and the one you'd prefer to see get the carries in Fantasy, but if the Cardinals are that willing to abandon him when the score isn't in their favor, you can never feel confident playing him in Fantasy. Especially now that the Cardinals are down to their third quarterback, the score isn't going to be in their favor so often.
Week 17 at San Francisco should be a more competitive game, but given that the 49ers are tough against the run as well, you should probably pass on Williams for the season's final week.
Taylor received 11 carries, but only gained 19 yards during the contest. With Ryan Lindley at quarterback, the Seahawks defense could focus on stopping the run all game. Taylor averaged just 1.7 yards per attempt during the contest. He was a slightly larger threat in the passing game, pulling down two receptions for 25 yards.
Taylor will take on the 49ers Week 17.
Williams was the star of the rushing attack last week and led the team in rushing again Thursday, gaining 75 yards on his 15 carries while adding 11 more yards on two receptions. But he shared the ball virtually evenly in the running game with Taylor, who racked up 61 yards on 14 carries while not receiving a target in the passing game. Neither player scored a touchdown, but neither team was able to reach the end zone on a night where defenses reigned.
The Cardinals could opt to continue the time share in Week 16 when the Seahawks come to town. If quarterback Drew Stanton (knee) ends up missing that game, the offense could lean heavily on Williams and Taylor again.
Taylor visits the Rams on Thursday.
