Taylor, who now leads the NFL in rushing yards (1,122) and touchdowns (14), piled up 185 yards on the ground and made it eight-straight games with at least 100 yards from scrimmage and a rushing touchdown. That tied Taylor with Hall of Fame running back LaDainian Tomlinson for the NFL record.

With the victory, the Colts (6-5) have won five out of their last six games. The Colts were 0-5 against opponents who made the playoffs last year, including two losses to AFC South rival Tennessee.

Buffalo, on the other hand, has lost three of its last five, including a 9-6 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars two weeks ago.

The Colts forced four turnovers in the game and scored touchdowns after two of them to increase their lead to 24-7 in the first half. Bills quarterback Josh Allen completed 21 of 35 passes for 200 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.
