DETROIT — Detroit Lions running back D’Andre Swift elicited memories of another franchise great, Barry Sanders, after a 22-yard touchdown reception with 1 minute, 28 seconds remaining in the third quarter against the Washington Commanders on Sunday.
Swift regained his balance after falling to the ground while making a short catch from quarterback Jared Goff and ran into the end zone, juking multiple defenders along the way.
In the opening quarter, Swift also broke free for a 50-yard gain.
Swift was originally listed as questionable to play because of an ankle injury and had missed two practices this week, but he got the start Sunday.
