1. St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin returned a punt for a 98-yard gain and a TD when he ripped my Colts apart last year. Impressive, even given my current disdain for him. 

 

2. Micah Hyde, CB for the Green Bay Packers, had a 93-yard punt return, complete with a TD, when his team played their NFC North rival Minnesota Vikings during the 2013 season.
