Smith didn't allow a touchdown and was as close to a shutdown cornerback as one could be last year before his injury. This season, top receivers have produced against Smith, whose confidence doesn't seem to have wavered.
He does, however, have two interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown in Week 1 against the Denver Broncos. And outside of some difficulties in Week 7 against the Arizona Cardinals, Smith has played much better of late.
His task gets difficult Sunday, with second-year receivers Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson each boasting over 600 yards and six touchdowns this season for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
