Geno SmithSeattle’s resurgence continued Sunday afternoon with two touchdown passes to help lead the Seahawks to a 27-13 victory over the Giants that will keep them in first place in the NFC West for at least a little while longer.

Smith’s path to the Seahawks included a one-year stint with the Giants that saw former head coach Ben McAdoo be the player to end Eli Manning’s career as the starting quarterback the team. Smith started a 24-17 loss to the Raiders in Week 13 of the 2017 season, and McAdoo was fired along with general manager Jerry Reese the day after the game.

Manning returned to the starting lineup the following week, and Smith was asked Sunday if he took more delight in beating his former team. Smith said no, but took a moment to mention McAdoo and Smith during his remarks.

“Not quite. I’m happy to be here in Seattle,” Smith said in his postgame press conference. “I spent a year with the Giants. That year for me was like a blur. My life has passed from them. I have no remorse for anyone there. Actually, for me this game was about Ben McAdoo and Jerry Reese. They believed in me. As for anything else, I don’t really care. I’m happy to be here in Seattle. It’s like a family here. It feels like home. I’m just enjoying my time here and continuing to work hard with these guys and just trying to be the best that we can be.”

Smith has been one of the best stories of the 2022 season and every win he racks up should make the Giants and many other teams wonder why it took so long for Smith to get another extended run as an NFL starter.
