Coming off a five-touchdown performance on Sunday, a number of Indianapolis Colts believe Jonathan Taylor should be in the MVP conversation.

Taylor leads the league in touchdowns and rushing yards through 11 weeks.

"He's sending a message to the league," Nyheim Hines said. "It's been amazing watching him play. Great to watch him finish runs and make people miss. He's a complete back ... If there's any skill position [for MVP], Jonathan Taylor needs to be in it. Him and Cooper Kupp. JT is the first in line for a non-quarterback player."

Taylor has already joined LaDainian Tomlinson, Clinton Portis, and Adrian Peterson as the only players with more than 1,000 rushing yards and 10 rushing touchdowns in their first two seasons.
