Stephen finished first place in column writing in the 2015 Indiana Associated Press Media Editors competition, and he is a previous top-10 winner in explanatory journalism in the Associated Press Sports Editors national contest. He has chronicled the NFL since 2005, covering the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2005-2013 and the Colts since 2013. He has previously worked for the Miami Herald, Tampa Bay Times, Indianapolis Star and The Athletic.

The Indianapolis Colts tried their version of the “tush push” to no avail, then went back to basics to get to the end zone.

One play after failing to push quarterback Gardner Minshew into the end zone with an Eagles-style QB sneak, Minshew tossed to running back Jonathan Taylor for a rush on fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line to get the Colts on the board against the New England Patriots.

Taylor stretched the run horizontally to the offense’s right after initially not finding any running lanes. His patience paid off when a crease presented itself and Taylor made a quick vertical cut and dived into the end zone between several would-be Patriots tacklers.

The touchdown and Matt Gay’s extra point gave the Colts a 7-3 lead over New England in the final International Series game of this season, with the matchup being played in Frankfurt, Germany.

The Colts would get back to .500 for the first time in a month with a victory Sunday.
