Mark Sanchez might not like it, but the New York Jets‘ fan base has got to love what it has seen from rookie quarterback Geno Smith just five weeks into his first NFL season. Smith was able to dethrone the Atlanta Falcons on the road in what many have already called the upset of the 2013 NFL season.
A 30-28 victory for Smith is the third of his career in just five starts under his belt. The most important statistic for Smith in this game was that he did not turn the ball over a single time, despite coming into Atlanta with eight interceptions and three fumbles.
The “Geno for Offensive Rookie of the Year” campaign should be louder than ever right now.
Geno’s third career game-winning drive comes as a total shock to most as Matt Ryan rarely losses on his home turf and especially not in the waning moments of the game. One thing is for certain; this is the kind of victory that makes Jets fans forget all about Sanchez and his butt-fumbling ways.
