Morgantown, West Virginia – Former West Virginia Mountaineers quarterback Geno Smith finally got an opportunity to shine last night in the Seattle Seahawks versus Los Angeles Rams game and he made the most of it!
Smith was inserted into the game for the first time this season when the Seattle Seahawks starting quarterback Russell Wilson dislocated his finger in the second half.
When Smith entered the game, the Seahawks were down 16-7 and had the ball on their own 2 yard line.
Smith led the Seahawks on a 10-play, 98-yard drive that ended with a touchdown pass to D.K. Metcalf to cut Seattle’s deficit to two points in the fourth quarter.

Geno went 5-5 for 73 yards and a touchdown on that drive and he very nearly brought the Seahawks back to victory.
However, Smith threw a late interception and the Rams clinched the game with a 47 yard field late to win 26-17.
If Russell Wilson is out for an extended period of time with his injury, this could be a perfect opportunity for Geno Smith.
Following the game, Smith said the following: “Love this team! Love this city! Winning is all that matters. Let’s get back to work.”
Love this team! Love this city!
Winning is all that matters.
Let’s get back to work. https://t.co/gzUppQmQNO
