There hasn’t been too much that’s gone right for the Detroit Lions this afternoon against the Cleveland Browns, but D’Andre Swift is looking to change that.
The Lions have trimmed Cleveland’s lead to 13-7 late in the 3rd quarter thanks to Swift’s 57 yard touchdown run:

He now has 103 yards on eight carries this afternoon. Not only was the 57 yard dash the longest of Swift’s career, but also the longest rushing TD in team history since the 82 yard run by RB Barry Sanders in 1997:
