Geno Smith staked his claim to back up Russell Wilson by throwing for 107 yards and two scores, and the Seattle Seahawks held off the visiting Oakland Raiders 17-15 in Thursday night’s preseason finale.

Smith needed just seven attempts across four possessions, hitting Terry Wright for a 39-yard score to open the game and Jacob Hollister from 11 yards out midway through the second quarter. Paxton Lynch finished 1 of 7 for 4 yards and rushed five times for 6 yards in his return from a concussion.

Mike Glennon started for Oakland and went 9 of 13 for 78 yards, while Nathan Peterman finished 20 of 27 for 158 yards.
