The Indianapolis Colts' 41-15 road victory over the Buffalo Bills last Sunday, which featured running back Jonathan Taylor amassing five touchdowns and 204 scrimmage yards, served as the backdrop for the Week 2 edition of the first-ever midseason Hard Knocks.
Many storylines existed leading into the game.
The Colts wanted to jump over .500 and firmly supplant themselves as a playoff contender. The Bills hoped to continue the momentum of their 45-17 win over the New York Jets after an ugly 9-6 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars the week prior.
On an individual level, Taylor looked to continue his crusade as the NFL's likely rushing king this year as he kept the Colts' offense chugging.
