The cons of Justin Herbert’s game:
Quite frankly, there are only two real cons I can think of for Justin Herbert in Week 14 and one of them really is not that big of a deal. However, it is the name of the game and we have to carry on through this.
The interception late in the game
Justin Herbert did throw an interception late in the game that game Matt Ryan and the Falcons offense the ball back with enough time to score and beat the Chargers on their home turf. However, the defense bailed the Bolts out with an interception of their own.
One interception is nothing to panic about but the timing of the interception is what made this one particularly ball. If there is one time not to throw a pick, it is with less than two minutes remaining in a tie game.
It was not all Herbert’s fault, though. Keenan Allen was in the game but obviously was not 100% and it was a weird play where Allen almost was not expecting the ball, Herbert threw it to him anyway and it was intercepted.
They definitely were not on the same page and it appeared to be a miscommunication. We know where all miscommunications point to.
No deep balls
Herbert tried a few times to connect deep, but really, the Falcons did a really good job in limiting the most dangerous part of his game. Herbert had a few chances but was unable to complete the pass in razor-thin margins.
Again, it is hard to even call this a con as it is not like Herbert outright missed a wide-open receiver deep. It is about as small as a con that we can give out.
