Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 7 vs BAL (4 / 8 / 95 / 1 / 0 pass, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)
Geno Smith started the game, but left due to a knee injury after just 24 plays. Smith was sharp early on, quickly going through his progressions and delivering crisp passes to open targets. Unfortunately, New York's receivers, namely Charone Peake and Brandon Marshall, dropped good throws over the middle of the field. Smith was able to make one big play, however. On a 2nd-and-19 play, Quincy Enunwa ran a button hook, sat down in the middle of Baltimore's zone coverage, evaded two tacklers and sped down the left side line for a 69-yard touchdown. While the big pass play gave the offense some confidence, Smith made some miscues that ultimately led to his injury. When receivers weren't open, Smith would opt to hold onto the ball rather than throwing it away. Smith took two sacks on just ten drop backs, which included an awkward landing on the sack that knocked him out of the game.
2016 Week 6 vs ARI (4 / 6 / 31 / 0 / 1 pass, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)
With his team facing a 28-3 fourth quarter deficit, Geno Smith replaced Ryan Fitzpatrick. Smith gave the offense a spark, picking up two first downs, but the drive came to end when Smith was intercepted on fourth down by Tyrann Mathieu. Smith primarily threw the ball over the middle of the field, easily making throws against zone coverage.
