D’Andre Swift, the former Georgia running back who’s now a rookie on the Detroit Lions, dropped what would have been a sure touchdown with six seconds remaining in the game against the Bears this afternoon:

It was a perfect pass from Matthew Stafford and just went straight through Swift’s hands.
While the Swift play will be the focal scapegoat of the Lions collapse, they had already blown what was a 23-6 lead nearing the end of the third quarter. From that point forward, Mitchell Trubisky inexplicably led three touchdown drives on four possessions after mustering an anemic offense in the game’s first 40 minutes.
