This looks familiar: Jonathan Taylor hits the century mark in Colts' victory over Vikings
Jonathan Taylor was an automatic 100-yard rusher at Wisconsin. In his three seasons with the Badgers, it was considered a victory for the defense just by holding the star back to under that triple-digit mark on a given day.
Now, Taylor is proving he can do it at the next level.
Taylor finished his second career game in the NFL with a 100-yard rushing performance, his first as a rookie. The former Wisconsin star finished the afternoon with 101 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries. Indianapolis defeated Minnesota 28-11 to improve to 1-1 on the season.
The rookie was also credited with 2 receptions for 9 yards. His touchdown in Sunday’s contest was the first time Taylor had reached the end zone as a Colt.
Last week, Taylor made his NFL debut but struggled on the ground. He totaled just 22 yards on 9 attempts in a 27-20 loss to Jacksonville. Taylor did prove to be a threat as a pass-catcher, though, amassing 67 yards on 6 grabs, the second-highest total of the contest for the Colts.
In two games, Taylor has rushed for 123 yards, added 76 receiving yards and scored a touchdown. Not a bad start for the second-round pick out of Wisconsin.
