Geno Smith starts hot, Seahawks D finishes to beat Broncos in Russell Wilson's return

Sep 13, 2022

There was a lot of hope for Geno Smith's NFL future when he was at West Virginia. He was a heck of a college quarterback.

It didn't work out for him with the New York Jets and he entered the backup phase of his career. The Seattle Seahawks were mocked for trading Russell Wilson and giving Smith a chance to start.

It took a long time, but Smith finally had the game of his NFL career on a night when Wilson made his return to Seattle.

Smith did most of his damage in the first half, but that was enough. Seattle's defense had some huge goal-line stands to make the first-half lead hold up, denying Wilson a chance to beat his former team on his return to Seattle. The Broncos tried a 64-yard field goal with 20 seconds left but Brandon McManus missed, and the Seahawks held on to a 17-16 win.
