It’s always a great morning when you wake up to news about a Chargers player earning a new accolade. Especially one that is well-deserved.
On Friday morning, the NFL announced their players of the month for November and rookie quarterback Justin Herbert was named the Offensive Rookie of the Month, his second monthly honor this season.
This past month, Herbert quarterbacked the Chargers against the Broncos, Raiders, Dolphins, Jets, and Bills. He finished that five-game span with 11 touchdowns passes to just four interceptions, along with a rushing score. His average of 294.6 passing yards per game was roughly seven yards off his season average of 301.5 and his 66.5 completion percentage is right there, as well (66.9).
Fun fact: The last rookie quarterback to win back-to-back monthly honors was former St. Louis Rams first-overall pick, Sam Bradford.
Congrats to Herbert, and hopefully this is just one more necessary step to earning the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year honor!
