Geno Smith Safety: Jets QB Runs Out Of Bounds In Back Of End Zone During Preseason Game (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Geno Smith didn't do himself any favors in his bid to win the New York Jets' starting quarterback job in their preseason game against the New York Giants on Saturday night. After throwing a touchdown pass on the Jets' second drive of the game, the rookie ended up throwing three interceptions before halftime. Then, late in the fourth quarter and the Jets leading 14-13, Smith made perhaps the most embarrassing mistake of the game, accidentally running out of the back of the end zone for a safety.

Not surprisingly, Smith's safety reminded many of former Detroit Lions quarterback Dan Orlovsky and the lowlight he is most known for.

Smith completed 16 of 30 passes, threw for 199 yards to go along with three picks and a touchdown pass. The Jets won 24-21 in overtime.
