Rams use trickery to score on 90-yard punt return
Stedman Bailey owes Tavon Austin and his Rams teammates props for his 90-yard punt return.
Because of their trickery, he saw mostly turf after he caught the ball.
St. Louis pretended like the punt was going to the right side of the field, with blockers running down to protect Austin. Austin, meanwhile, called for a fair catch, but the ball never came.
Bailey had caught the ball all the way on the left side of the field, leaving the Seahawks badly out of position to tackle him.
Even the TV camera operator was tricked.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll unsuccessfully argued that Austin calling fair catch negated the rest of the play.
