Quarterback Alex Smith was one of the offensive heroes of the game as he recorded his best start of 2011. His offensive and defensive lines made sure he was comfortable all game, allowing him to go about his business and not worry about the score.
Smith finished the game going 17-for-23 with 274 passing yards, 10 rushing yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions and a nifty 142.3 NFL rating. He also launched his two longest passes of the season, completing a 52-yarder and a 56-yarder. He averaged 11.9 yards per pass.
Smith is having a career season in 2011 and will be thinking about padding some of those numbers next week against a potentially iffy Arizona Cardinals secondary.
