Swearinger played his best game of the season last week against the Cardinals, according to defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, Comcast SportsNet Houston reports. "He plays 100 miles an hour every play," Phillips said. "And the good thing about him is he's really one of those players that doesn't make the same mistake twice. Now, he makes rookie mistakes but the next time that comes up, he doesn't make a mistake."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Swearinger had three tackles, two passes defensed and an interception -- the first of his career -- in last week's loss to Arizona. He's started the last three games and will continue to start with Houston having lost both Danieal Manning (knee) and Ed Reed (released). The word on Swearinger is that he's a playmaker who doesn't lack swagger.
