Geno Smith Back to Efficient Self in Seattle’s Win Over Cardinals



Geno Smith

Geno Smith was able to respond well this week after being off his game last Sunday.

Smith was back up to his usual efficient self, completing 18 out of 24 passes for 219 yards. That’s a 75% passing day and was part of a rating of 113.0. As usual, the WVU legend also added some extra yards with his legs, rushing for 12 more.

He also threw two touchdown passes on the day, including a textbook pass to Jake Bobo. The ESPN SportsCenter account posted a video of the play.

Smith led the Seahawks to an NFC West divisional win over the Cardinals. Seattle won the game 20-10. And unlike most of Seattle’s wins this season, a comeback wasn’t even necessary since the Seahawks were in control throughout the game.

After last week’s game, Smith made sure to take the blame. “Obviously, I didn’t do my best job today,” Smith responded when asked what happened. He then continued. “Overall, I should’ve been better. The defense played a tremendous game. The offensive line played a tremendous game.”

It didn’t take him long before Geno Smith showed why he made the Pro Bowl and captured the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year Award last season.

The win moves Seattle’s record to 4-2 with a matchup with the Cleveland Browns on deck next week.
