Justin Herbert has helped the Chargers beat three very good football teams over the past three weeks.
First, he took down the vaunted Chiefs. Next, he dismantled the then-undefeated Raiders. And today, the Browns and their 500 yards of offense weren’t enough to beat the Chargers and their superstar quarterback.
Over the past three outings, Herbert has thrown for 11 touchdowns, rushed for another, and has given the ball away zero times. During that span, he’s also made his own bit of history.
First, with his performance against the Browns, Herbert recorded his seventh career game of three touchdowns and zero interceptions. That’s the most for a quarterback through his first two seasons and he’s done it with 11 games left on the schedule of his sophomore campaign.
Chargers QB Justin Herbert through his first 20 games: 5,912 passing yards (second most by any QB in NFL history) and 50 total TD.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) October 11, 2021
He now has 7 games with at least 3 TD and 0 INT, the most by any QB through his first two seasons in NFL history.
Secondly, Herbert notched his 11th 300-yard passing performance, giving him the most such games through a quarterback’s first two season in NFL history. He broke the tie at 10 with Patrick Mahomes and Dan Marino.
Who knows just how much more history Herbert can make this year, but if I was a betting man, I’d definitely say he’s nowhere near done yet.
