Watch: NFC’s Geno Smith Throws 3 First Half TDs in Pro Bowl Games



LAS VEGAS – Geno Smith shows off in the first half of the NFL’s Pro Bowl Games.

On the NFC’s first drive of the flag football game, the West Virginia product and Seattle Seahawks quarterback threw a touchdown pass was to George Kittles of the San Francisco 49ers. Kittles had to do most of the work by extending the play after the catch. He managed to avoid having his flag pulled and ran down the sideline for the score.

This touchdown put the NFC up 7-6 after successfully converting the one-point conversion attempt. On the NFC’s next drive, Smith tossed one to Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Ceedee Lamb. The NFC missed the ensuing conversion and led 13-6 after the two scores. 

That was not all. Smith added one more before the end of the half to TJ Hockenson of the Minnesota Vikings.

Smith’s third touchdown pass came in response to one by the AFC and the AFC also followed it with a score in the final seconds. The first half closed with the game all tied up at 20.
