Geno Smith Achieves Personal NFL Passing Milestone in Loss

Published

on

After all the fanfare of kicking off his first season as a full-time NFL starting quarterback in almost a decade, Geno Smith and his Seahawks have now lost back-to-back games. But despite the struggles of the team, the WVU product did reach a milestone.

Smith threw for 300+ yards, 325 to be exact, in Seattle’s 27-23 loss to the Falcons on Sunday. This was the first time Smith reached 300 or more yards through the air in a game since 2014.

He failed to even reach 200 yards passing in any game this season prior to Sunday, let alone 300. It’s not to say he needed to throw that much in the Monday Night Football win though. Smith did post a 119.5 rating on that magical night.

The last time Smith threw for 300 or more yards in an NFL game was December 28th for the Jets in Miami.

Smith was inducted to the WVU Athletics Hall of Fame earlier this year. He remains as one of the most prolific players in school history as the all-time passing yards and passing touchdowns leader with 11,662 yards and 98 touchdowns. He played from 2009-12 before being a second round selection by the New York Jets.
