Finds paydirt in finale
RBGreen Bay Packers
January 10, 2022
Taylor ran 11 times for 53 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for three yards in Sunday's 37-30 loss to the Lions.
ANALYSIS
Taylor and AJ Dillon shared the backfield duties with Aaron Jones (knee) sidelined, and the former set career highs in carries and rushing yards while tallying both the first receptions and touchdown of his career. Jones should return for the Packers' playoff opener in two weeks, which presumably will put Taylor back in a bit role.
