    Colts' Jonathan Taylor: Finds end zone in playoff debut

    Jonathan Taylor rushed 21 times for 78 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 27-24 wild-card round loss to the Bills. He added two catches for six yards on four targets.Taylor gave the Indianapolis Colts a 10-7 lead with a one-yard touchdown plunge in the second quarter but lost three yards on a dubious 3rd-and-goal toss play from the one-yard line later in the quarter on a drive that ended without points following an incomplete pass on the ensuing play. The rookie second-round pick established himself as the Colts' clear lead back down the stretch, and Taylor is positioned to finish among the league's rushing leaders next season if he can maintain that role while running behind one of the league's best offensive lines.

    Colts' Jonathan Taylor: Explodes for career-best effort

    Jonathan Taylor rushed 30 times for 253 yards and two touchdowns and brought in one of two targets for one yard in the Indianapolis Colts' 28-14 win over the Jaguars on Sunday.As his final numbers imply, Taylor consistently terrorized the Jaguars defense, ripping off a game-long 56-yard run on his second carry of the day and subsequently notching touchdowns of one and 45 yards in the second and fourth quarter, respectively. The rookie had an uneven first nine games as a pro, but he bounced back to finish with 74 or more rushing yards in each of his last six contests, scoring seven touchdowns over his last four games. Taylor also proved to be a solid receiver with a 35-298-1 line through the air, and he'll now look to carry over the significant momentum of this performance into a wild-card matchup against the Bills on the road next weekend.

    Colts' Jonathan Taylor: Continues TD binge vs. Steelers

    Jonathan Taylor carried 18 times for 74 yards and two touchdowns while failing to bring in his lone target during Sunday's 28-24 loss to the Steelers.Taylor averaged a respectable 4.1 yards per carry against a tough defensive unit while adding a pair of short touchdown runs in the first half. He was uncharacteristically quiet as a pass catcher, which capped his overall production, but his five touchdowns in the last three games are surely keeping fantasy managers happy. Taylor now has 11 total touchdowns on the season and will look to finish the regular season on a high note in next Sunday's inviting matchup with the Jaguars.

He added four receptions for 12 yards as a receiver.Taylor dominated the work out of the Indianapolis Colts' backfield, accounting for 16 of the 21 running back touches. He worked efficiently, tallying a long run of 14 yards and also rushing for at least five yards on eight of his attempts. Taylor opened the scoring with a five-yard touchdown plunge, his second consecutive game with a score. Also encouraging was Taylor's continued work as a receiver, as he doubled Nyheim Hines' reception total. He should maintain his status as the clear lead back in a Week 16 matchup against Pittsburgh.
