Geno Smith was the most accurate quarterback in the NFL during the 2022 season, completing a league-high 69.8 percent of his pass attempts, and it turns out the Seahawks quarterback is pretty darn good in a flag football setting as well.

In helping the NFC to a victory in the revamped Pro Bowl Games, Smith was one of the standouts in the flag football games that took place Sunday, throwing five touchdown passes, including the game winner in the final minutes of the first of three flag football games.

Smith, a finalist for the AP Comeback Player of the Year award, was making his Pro Bowl debut in his 10th season, the reward for a 2022 season in which he set multiple franchise records while helping lead the Seahawks to the playoffs in his first season as a starter since 2014.

On Sunday, Smith led all Pro-Bowl quarterbacks with five touchdown passes and 239 passing yards, completing 14 of 16 pass attempts including touchdown passes of 31, 23, 54 and 32 yards, the last of which, caught by Cowboys receiver CeeDee Lamb, gave the NFC a victory in the first flag football game of the day.

Smith was one of four Seahawks taking part in the Pro Bowl Games along with safety Quandre Diggs, cornerback Tariq Woolen and kicker Jason Myers.
