While the season hasn’t been perfect, the team is right in the thick of the playoff hunt.
Smith is having a career year in 2022, as he’s breaking personal records this season.
However, he’s gunning for a record currently held by former Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.
With Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers, what record can he break that’s held by Wilson?
Sunday Gives Smith Best Chance To Bypass Wilson’s Record
Smith’s six consecutive games of a 100+ passer rating ties him for the record in Seattle.
However, Sunday’s game can easily see him breaking the record Wilson set for consecutive 100+ passer rating games.

With the Panthers being a team in complete shambles, it gives the Seahawks veteran quarterback a significant chance to set a record in Seattle.
The path to this wasn’t easy, as 2022 is Smith’s first full season as a starting quarterback since 2014.
While the 2022 season marks the beginning of a new chapter for him, the season has seen many challenges for him.
One of those is staying in the playoff race, something no one saw the Seahawks being a part of this season.
Crushing losses to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Las Vegas Raiders have taken the Seahawks out of first in the NFC West.
While he preformed well in both games, the team came up short.
However, he can keep the Seahawks within striking distance of the top spot in the NFC West on Sunday.
