FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The worst day of Geno Smith's young NFL career came four weeks ago with a halftime benching and whole lot of doubts.

The New York Jets' rookie quarterback was 4 of 10 for 29 yards and a minuscule 8.3 rating in the team's 23-3 home loss to Miami on Dec. 1. It capped a miserable three-game stretch for Smith, who went from potentially being the future of the franchise to an overmatched, mistake-filled question mark.

It also turned out to be a critical turning point.

Smith has played dramatically better in the Jets' three games since that lousy day, throwing four touchdown passes and running for another two scores with just two interceptions. New York won two of those games, with Smith playing a major part.
