LA Chargers: Justin Herbert almost completes comeback – Game grade
By Brandon Viera
The LA Chargers lost 31-26 at the buzzer on Sunday. Another crushing defeat for the team as usual. Here is how the golden boy Justin Herbert performed.
I don’t know how we do it. Maybe it’s just me, but I really don’t know how we as fans can continue to watch the same team every single week and not have hearts aging 10 times as fast as normal people. Every week I watch the LA Chargers and every week the fourth quarter feels like it’s for sure going to put me in the hospital.
Anyway, Justin Herbert once again showed fans that not all hope is lost! For this season, it might be. However, the future is certainly bright for this man and this team. I think we all get the feeling that with the right pieces around him, Justin Herbert can one day hoist the Lombardi Trophy in the powder blue and sunshine gold (unless they’re wearing the navy alternates in the Super Bowl… just saying).
Against the rival Las Vegas Raiders, Justin Herbert completed 28 of 42 passes (good for 67 percent) for 326 yards, two touchdowns, and a passer rating of 105.9. Another great day on the stat sheet for Herbert as he makes his case to once again win Rookie of the Week in a losing effort.
Let’s jump in and take a look at the positives and negatives, as well as give our rookie quarterback prince Justin Herbert a grade for the game against the Raiders.
