Taylor tied the NFL record of eight-straight games with 100 yards from scrimmage and a rushing touchdown, which is also held by LaDainian Tomlinson (2006) and Lydell Mitchell (1975-76).

The 22-year-old's performance also made him the first running back in the NFL this season to 1,000 rushing yards, and officially moved him ahead of the injured Derrick Henry for the league lead.

Fans certainly enjoyed what Taylor did to the Bills on Sunday, who entered the game ranked as the best overall defense, averaging a league-low 274.1 yards per-game, and third in defending the run.

As for the Bills, Taylor’s performance added more insult to injury.

Not only did they get embarrassed at home, but they have now lost three of their last five games and have fallen out of first place in the AFC East standings. The New England Patriots now hold on to first place after their recent surge with five-straight wins.

Buffalo will next travel to New Orleans to face the Saints on Thanksgiving night before returning home to host the Patriots on "Monday Night Football" in a game that could very well swing the division.
