Player to Watch No. 1 - Quarterback Geno Smith
Geno Smith had a rough game in Week 9 against the Baltimore Ravens, completing just 13 of 28 passes, throwing for 157 yards, with one interception, and no touchdowns. Turnovers have been a problem for Geno the past four weeks of the season. He's turned the ball over eight times in his last four games. Geno also has led the Seahawks on game-winning drives against the Lions and Browns this season. Which shows the highs and lows of Geno's first half in 2023. Though he has struggled in recent games, Sunday is a good chance for him to bounce back.
There should be ample opportunity for Geno to throw the ball in Week 10 against the Commanders, because they rank 27th in passing yards allowed. The Commanders allow 252.7 yards passing a game and recently traded their two best pass rushers Montez Sweat and Chase Young before the trade deadline. Geno should have more time to throw the ball this week and be able to take advantage of a porous Commanders secondary.
Geno Smith has taken responsibility for his turnovers in recent games and knows he can play to a higher standard. This week presents a good opportunity for Geno to get right and play like he is capable of. Geno has worked his entire career to be a starting quarterback in the NFL. He has the tenacity and the strength to overcome the adversity he has faced this year and throughout his NFL career. This game will hopefully show what Geno Smith is made of and be a step in the right direction towards a better second half of the season.
