St. Louis Rams receiver Tavon Austin decided to play a game of “anything you can do I can do better” with Seattle Seahawks receiver Tyler Lockett on Sunday.
After Lockett had torched the Rams on a 57-yard punt return in the first quarter, Austin burned up the track on a 75-yard punt return of his own in the third quarter to put the Rams ahead of Seattle 24-13, with 4:30 remaining in the third quarter.
He tip-toed down the right sideline halfway through the exciting return, which you can see here.

It seems like perhaps the Rams have finally figured out how to use the dynamic playmaker out of West Virginia. This was Austin’s second touchdown of the day, having previously scored on a running play from 16 yards out.
Seattle was considered the favorite to win this NFC West divisional clash, but with just 20 minutes left in the contest it was the home team doing most of the damage.
