Jonathan Taylor has been simply sensational this season.  For starters, the Colts RB has now scored a TD in 11 straight games. Being exceptional in every match has been a norm for the MVP candidate and it was the case against the Patriots as well. In the final moments of the game, the Colts had a slender three-point lead over the Patriots.

The necessity to improve the lead was never more urgent as the Patriots were clawing back into the game. But as they say, cometh the hour, cometh the man. The RB scored a 67 yard TD with his blistering pace at 22.13 MPH. Thanks to this, the RB beat Tyreek Hill to become the fastest ball carrier this season.

The match between the Colts and the Patriots was an intriguing one, to say the least. Both the sides went back and forth throughout the night. For the first three-quarters, the Indianapolis Colts had a tight hold on the game against the Patriots. They were able to shut out Bill Belichick’s team during that span and went on to score 20 unanswered points.

In the second half, things changed. New England began to show signs of life in the fourth quarter, going on a 17-0 run to see themselves trailing by three points just before the two-minute warning. However, just as the tides appeared to be changing in the Patriots’ favor, Colts running back Jonathan Taylor burned all hopes of a Patriots comeback with a game-winning 67 yard TD.
