The Seahawks comeback fell short

Geno Smith was having a tough time moving the ball against the Bucs last Sunday with the Seahawks running game ineffective for the entire game. It was three and out after three and out as Seattle was only able to convert 1 of 9 3rd down opportunities. Geno Smith was having a fine season with regard to his passing efficiency but this game was very different compared to his previous 4 weeks of success.

Even with his struggles for much of this game, Geno was able to find his grove in the 4th quarter as the Seahawks were trying to mount a comeback. Geno Smith was able to guide the Seahawks to consecutive scoring drives to move them to within 5 points late in the 4th quarter.

The comeback fell short, however, as Seattle could not stop the Buccaneers to move the ball as they try to ice the game at the end. Still, a courageous effort from Geno Smith as he finished the game with 275 passing yards to go along with his 2 passing touchdowns late in the fourth quarter. The resiliency Geno and the Seahawks are showing makes them a tough opponent to face later this season and when they make the playoffs.
