Over the past couple of weeks has been doing a march madness style bracket for the Rams best play of 2013. The winner is decided by the most votes via the website or by using the #RamsTopPlay.

They are already in the final four and today’s matchup is the battle between the Mountaineers. Tavon Austin’s 98 yard punt return against the Colts or Stedman Bailey’s double reverse touchdown.

Tavon Austin’s 98 yard touchdown return.

The Rams were already surprisingly dominating the Colts before Austin’s punt return, but his return made the game 21-0 and almost guaranteed that the Rams were going to win this game.

This game was also known as Tavon Austin’s coming out party as he had three touchdowns of 50+ yards, making him on of three rookies ever to have that accomplishment.

Stedman Bailey’s Double Reverse

In week 16 against the Buccaneers, Stedman Bailey filled in for the injured Tavon Austin and took full advantage. With the game tied at seven, Clemens faked the handoff to Stacy and handed it off to Givens coming around the outside and then Givens handed the ball of to Bailey who took it 27 yards for his first NFL touchdown.

Bailey’s touchdown put the Rams up 14-7 and they never looked back holding on to a 23-13 victory. Bailey also lead the Rams in receiving that day having three receptions for 44 yards.

This is a pretty close call as both plays were big parts of some of the high points in the  Rams 2013 season, but it will be hard for any play of the Rams season to be more exciting than Austin calling off the punt and then grabbing the ball at the last second and taking it 98 yards the other way.
