With the second half just underway in Indianapolis, the St. Louis Rams are all over the Indianapolis Colts, 35-0, in arguably the biggest shocker of the day so far.
Well, you can also say that rookie Tavon Austin is all over the Colts in this one.
Austin has scored the last three touchdowns for the Rams. He took a punt back 98 yards in the second quarter. He followed that up by hauling in a 57-yard TD pass just minutes later from Kellen Clemens and–most recently–he grabbed an 81-yard TD to put the Rams up by that large margin.
Generally, when something like this occurs, people say, “That has to be close to some sort of a record.”
Well, it actually is:
Tavon Austin!!!! Going off against the Colts…314 All-Pupose yards and 3 TD early in the 3rd quarter (NFL Record is 404 Yards)

With a lot of time left in the game and Austin clearly locked into this zone that he’s in, we might not be far from seeing a record-breaking performance today.
