I was thoroughly impressed with Taliaffero’s performance last week against the Saints. You never really know how a running back looks until he sees live action, and he certainly looked like very capable back-up against a starting defense.
Taliaferro did cut a good amount of weight but still looks like a monster truck coming out of the backfield. and will be the preferred goal-to-go back.
Buck Allen is not going anywhere, but I do believe Taliaferro will hold off Allen for the back up-job.
Taliaferro should get a good amount of carries in this matchup, so we can hopefully continue to see quality, aggressive runs from Taliaferro against the Eagles.
