D'Andre Swift joins rare company with 4th rushing touchdown of the season
Former Georgia running back D’Andre Swift continued a strong start to his rookie campaign with the Detroit Lions on Sunday, rushing for his 4th touchdown of the season to give his team a 7-0 1st quarter lead over the Atlanta Falcons at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
It’s a building Swift is very familiar with from his time with the Bulldogs, playing in 3 SEC Championships and a national championship game at the venue.
This man @DAndreSwift is on FIRE 🔥 🔥🔥

The touchdown made it 3 straight games with a touchdown from scrimmage, making him the first rookie in team history to set that mark since Mikel Leshoure did it in 2012.
And Swift is only the 3rd player in Lions history to score 4 touchdowns on the ground and 1 through the air in his first 6 games, according to the team’s PR department on Twitter.
The 2-3 Lions are looking to improve to .500 against the lowly Falcons, who entered the contest at 1-5. And they hope that Swift continues to play a large role in helping them achieve their success in 2020.
