Despite a costly drop in his professional debut, D'Andre Swift still has the confidence of Matthew Stafford.
"I'm throwing it to him a hundred times out of a hundred," Stafford said of the running back. "Trust that kid. He'll make a play."
With 11 seconds left against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, trailing 27-23, Stafford threw to a wide-open Swift for what would have been the game-winning touchdown. The ball slipped through Swift's fingers, ending Detroit's chances at victory.
Swift caught 73 passes in three years at Georgia for 666 yards and five TDs. Pro Football Focus charted just three drops over his college career on 76 catchable balls.
