Solid performance in tough matchup
Taylor rushed 16 times for 83 yards and a touchdown and brought in four of five targets for 14 yards in the Colts' 38-31 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.
The Colts went with a pass-heavy approach for a good portion of the game against the Buccaneers' extremely tough run defense, but coach Frank Reich finally unleashed Taylor on the Colts' game-tying drive in the fourth quarter. The second-year back carried the ball eight times on the 10-play march, recording 58 yards, which included a four-yard rushing touchdown. Taylor also continued to enjoy a steady role in the passing game, albeit in not very efficient fashion in terms of yardage Sunday. He'll naturally remain a top play in all formats during a Week 13 home divisional matchup that presents a much more palatable caliber of competition in the form of the Texans.

While speaking during his season-ending news conference, GM Chris Ballard fell short of committing to Wentz as the Colts' starting QB next season, Mike Wells of ESPN.com reports. "When we made the decision, after Philip [Rivers] retired ... to make a move on Carson, at the time of the decision we felt good about it and I still don't regret the decision at the time," Ballard noted Thursday. "Sitting here today ... I won't make a comment on who is going to be here next year and who is not going to be here next year. That's not fair to any player."
