Indianapolis Colts Rookie running back Jonathan Taylor We played a career game with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. He rushed to 253 rush yards and two rush touchdowns with 30 carries (average 8.4 ypc.). This includes his big afternoon 56-yard rush long.

His 253 rushyard Edgerrin James (219), the most Hall of Fame single game player in Colts franchise history And now it’s the ninth-most record in NFL history of all running backs.

Taylor The youngest running back in history to rush over 250 yards of rush yards..

In terms of seasons, Taylor’s total of 1,169 yards of rushyards was the third most running back in 2020, chasing only the Tennessee Titans. Derrick Henry (2,027) and Minnesota Vikings Dalvin Cook (1,557) Among all league leaders.

Therefore, Taylor also led all rookies in a hurry yard, averaging 5.03 yards per carry.

He also made 11 rush touchdowns to match his 1,169 rushyard.

Impressive newcomer Join James and fellow Hall of Fame Marshall Faulk as the only rookie in Colts franchise history to run through over 1,000 yards of rush yards and over 10 rush touchdowns.— It’s an elite company to say the least.

Taylor is a leading candidate for the “All NFL Rookie-Team Honors” running back and should be strongly considered for the NFL Offense Blue Key of the Year Awards (although the Los Angeles Chargers quarterback). Justin Herbert And Minnesota Viking wide receiver Justin Jefferson The current fierce competition there).

Unfortunately, Taylor just carried the Colts on Sunday, He did a game clinch touchdown from a distance of about 45 yards In the last few minutes of the fourth quarter.

Colts will need another dominant performance from Taylor in the playoffs with Buffalo Bills next weekend. Potential first round turmoil needs to be removed, especially in cold January weather conditions against enemies in the old AFC East.

But whatever the outcome, the future of “beast-like” rookie football is very bright.

This season may not be over yet.
