This Just In: Tavon Austin Is Fast (With Updates)

  • Rick Chandler

And, cue about a million tweets of people complaining “The ONE week I don’t play Tavon Austin …”

The Rams are destroying the Colts 28-0, and it’s featured two electric touchdowns by by Austin. The first was on a 98-yard punt return (longest PR of the season). Then he hauled in a 57-yard TD pass.

UPDATE: The Rams start the second half predictably, with an 81-yard TD reception by Austin, on a crossing route. Rams 35, Colts 0. Austin has touched the ball seven times, and has three TDs.

The PR gave the Rams a 21-0 lead, and it came on a questionable decision — Austin fielding a punt near the goal line. But I guess he was desperate to do something with the ball, since St. Louis OC Brian Shottenheimer hadn’t been utilizing him much on offense.

You can’t really blame him for his poor dancing, can you?

Three touchdowns calls for an awful dance, Tavon.

UPDATE: Andrew Luck picked off in end zone, early third quarter.
