Tavon Austin is the St. Louis Rams billboard player. He's the potential star - the possible x-factor, and could become one of the most electrifying players in the NFL. That's what the Rams hope Austin will be, and although his rookie season has been mostly just flashes of talent here and there, nothing really stood out.
Then the Rams played the Indianapolis Colts, and Austin had 300+ total yards, and 3 touchdowns. Austin has already been named NFC special team player of the week, for his great 98 yard punt return for a touchdown. But Austin could end up with another award this week.
That award would be for the Rookie of the Week award, which you can vote for here. Honestly, this should be a landslide victory for Austin. Here's a look at the other rookies who are in the running for the award.
Dwayne Gratz - 5 tackles and an interception.
Damontre Moore - Blocked a punt that was returned for a touchdown.
Larry Warford - He didn't allow a sack.
Kenny Stills - 3 receptions, 75 yards, and a touchdown.
Austin easily outdid his competition this week, so do the right thing and vote for Austin. Ram fans have to have something to celebrate right?
