Outside of a few blemishes that included an ugly interception to Kiko Alonso, Geno Smith has made noticeable improvements in his decision making from a week ago.
Prior to this game, Smith was having serious issues getting rid of the ball in a decent amount of time, taking sacks he had no business taking and wasting tremendous pass protection.
This week, he was decisive, getting rid of the ball on time and hitting his receivers in stride. Rather than run around in the pocket unnecessarily, Smith's quick decision making allowed the Jets to sustain offense and keep the defense well-rested.
The fact that his receivers actually caught the ball this week certainly helped his confidence as well.
Any rookie is going to have a few ugly plays every week, but the fact that Smith is steadily improving with each start is the most promising thing the Jets can take from this game.
