"I've been happy with Geno," Ryan said.
Smith had his best performance of the season Sunday at Tennessee. The game marked the first time this season Smith was able to throw a touchdown pass without throwing an interception in a game. The Jets host the Patriots Sunday.
Smith completed 16 of his 28 passes for 179 yards and also threw one touchdown. Smith connected with fullback John Conner for a 9-yard touchdown pass. It was the first time Smith was able to throw a touchdown pass without throwing an interception in a game this season. Smith also rushed for 16 yards on four attempts.
The Jets host the Patriots Week 16.
Smith threw a pick-six on his first pass attempt of the game, but was able to recover to complete 18 of his 29 pass attempts for 254 yards. Smith also rushed for 33 yards on six attempts.
The 29 pass attempts were more than double what Smith attempted Week 13 against the Dolphins when he threw 13 passes. Smith has yet to throw multiple touchdown passes in a game this season without an interception.
The Jets will play at Tennessee Week 15.
Asked if he learned anything from Smith's performance against Miami, Ryan replied: "No, because he only threw it 13 times. ... I'm just kidding."
Smith forced his final pass to tight end Jeff Cumberland. It bounced off linebacker Jelani Jenkins into the arms of safety Reshad Jones. Smith finished 7 of 13 for 65 yards with one interception, and he ran four times for 19 yards.
The Jets visit Minnesota in Week 14, and it remains to be seen whether New York will stick with Smith or go back to Michael Vick.
