Chargers LAtely Ep. 26: Herbert vs. Tua - The First Installment

Get your popcorn ready.

Chargers vs Raiders at SoFi Stadium, Inglewood, CA.

Happy Saturday, Chargers fans.

In today’s episode of Chargers LAtely, I give a brief recap of the Las Vegas game before dropping into a preview of tomorrow’s premiere rookie quarterback matchup between Justin Herbert and Tua Tagovailoa, both of whom were picked one after the other in the top 10 of this year’s NFL draft.

Tua is 2-0 in his first two starts while Herbert is still searching for his second victory as a professional. The biggest difference in one being 1-6 and the other being undefeated as a starter has been each team’s defensive performance. The Chargers defense has struggled to close games despite normally having a double-digit lead in the second half while the Dolphins have multiple defensive touchdowns this year as well as a punt return for a score.

If the Bolts want to give Herbert some early bragging rights over Tua to begin their careers, they’ll have to show the world they can step up when the pressure is on.

Hope you guys enjoy! See you tomorrow!
