Sunday was another terrific day for Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith, who threw for 367 yards, a single-game career high, which gives him 3,169 passing yards this season, also a career high. The veteran quarterback also threw for three touchdowns, including a game-winning drive to help the Seahawks pull out a last-minute, come-from-behind victory. It was the latest chapter in a storybook year for Smith, whose incredible season continues to be recognized throughout the league. On Monday, he was recognized once again as an Air Player of the Week nominee.

This is the third nomination for the award for Smith so far this season, earning the recognition in back-to-back weeks for his performances during Week 4 vs. the Lions and Week 5 vs. the Saints. Though Smith did not receive the award in either of the two weeks, he did take home the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 5. And while the nominations continue to pile up, fans throughout the game of football are also taking notice--Smith is currently leading all NFC quarterbacks in Pro Bowl voting.
