Tavon Austin chose a good day to have his breakout game.

After nine weeks of not much production, the Rams rookie wide receiver is off to a hot start in Indianapolis.

Austin fielded a punt at the Rams’ 2 yard line – a move that is generally met with rage on the sideline – made a defender miss and ran 98 yards for a touchdown.

The Rams’ first-round pick wasn’t done. On the next series, Austin ran a go-route to perfection and streaked by cornerback Vontae Davis. Quarterback Kellen Clemens hit Austin in stride and he finished it off for a 57-yard score.

And just when you thought he was done, Austin struck again. Clemens hit Austin over the middle and he took 81 yards for the score.
