Indianapolis – After Jonathan Taylor had 5 TD’s in Week 11 vs the Bills, Colts fans started up the Jonathan Taylor for MVP campaign. A RB hasn’t won the award since 2012 when Adrian Peterson put up 2,097 yards rushing with 13 total TD’s averaging 131.1 yards per game. Through 14 games, Taylor has 1,518 yards rushing with 19 total TD’s averaging 108.4 yards per game.

 

In the biggest regular season game at Lucas Oil Stadium since 2013, in primetime, and against their rival, Jonathan Taylor delivered his “Heisman Moment” with a game sealing 67 yard TD run.

 

The national media is starting to board the JT for MVP train.

 

 

 

JMV explained why Taylor is following the right path to surpass any QB candidate:

 

“To upend the QB tradition that most of the time wins out in the MVP award, this is the type of end of the season run into the postseason that can get a RB there. His stats, his production, combined with a teams success. There’s a lot of storylines here. This team started out 1-4 and the Colts would only be the 5th team all-time to make the postseason after a 1-4 start. Those are the type of storylines you need for a non-QB to win the award.”

 

Taylor has another primetime opportunity to further make his case vs the Cardinals on Christmas Night.
