Adrian Peterson gives Detroit Lions rookie D’Andre Swift some advice [Video]

After scoring the Detroit Lions first touchdown of the 2020 season, rookie running back D’Andre Swift had to be feeling pretty darn good about himself. But those good feelings went down the drain in a matter of hours as Swift could not cash in on an opportunity that would have won the game for the Lions.

The play came with under 10 seconds remaining in the game when Matthew Stafford threw the ball to Swift, who was wide open with his hands up. Unfortunately, the ball hit Swift in the hands but he was unable to make the catch as the football fell to the ground for an incomplete pass.

Following the game, Lions RB Adrian Peterson spoke to the media about the play and about how important it is for Swift to put Sunday’s dropped touchdown behind him.

“He had a great day out there as far as being a rookie,” running back Adrian Peterson said. “He’s showing up, he made plays. He made some good head-up plays on different situations that he was in there on. But I just pulled him to the side and told him, ‘Hey, it’s all about how you respond to this. Don’t let this get you down.’ I can imagine how he feels, you know? In that situation how he must feel.

“But at the end of the day, what he showed me today is that he’s going to be able to help us. He’s going to win games for us going into the season. So keep your head up, man. We’ve got 15 more (games). It’s a long season and at the end of the day, do not let this bother you. Do not let this linger. Focus on the next game, which is Green Bay. And focus on hey, if you’re in that position again, what you going to do to capitalize? That’s all that matters.”
