With their last exhibition game of 2019 season, the Oakland Raiders faced an old AFC West rival in a road game.

Geno Smith threw two touchdown passes in the first half, helping the Seattle Seahawks to a 17-15 victory over the Raiders at CenturyLink Field.

Smith, who played his college ball at West Virginia will most likely make the Seahawks and will be the backup to Russell Wilson.

Terry Wright was on the receiving end of Smiths first touchdown pass, as he snared a 39-yard pass from the right-handed veteran.

Jacob Hollister caught the final touchdown pass from Smith, as he was on the receiving end of a 11-yard toss.

All in all, Smith went 4-for-7 for 107 yards and those two touchdowns for the Seahawks and head coach Pete Carroll.

Mike Glennon started the finale, and went 9-for-13 for 78 yards and the Raiders ended up with a field goal on one of his drives.

Nathan Peterman went 20-for-27 for 158 yards, as he helped the Raiders get back into the game, when James Butler scored on a three-yard touchdown run; however, Peterman was sacked by Branden Jackson on the two-point attempt with 103 seconds remaining.

The Raiders were unable to secure the onside kick, and the Seahawks spoiled the Raiders attempt at an undefeated 2019 preseason.

UP NEXT: With the exhibition season now over, the Raiders will get ready for their 60th season opener against the Denver Broncos on Monday September 9, at the Coliseum. Game time will be at 7:20 p.m. on ESPN.
