4. Justin Herbert’s coming out party on Monday Night Football
As you can probably tell by now, there is going to be a lot of Justin Herbert-related moments on this list. Justin Herbert has been the one shining star of this season and he has delivered on some big moments for the Bolts this season.
His official arrival to the mainstream was in Week 5 against the New Orleans Saints. At this point, Herbert had three solid starts under his belt but there were still those unaware and those questioning whether or not he was legit.
Luckily, he had the chance to showcase his skills on primetime and he did just that. Herbert played a great game against the New Orleans Saints despite getting pressured on nearly every single snap.
He had several impressive touchdowns and finished the game with a season-high four touchdown passes. He completed 20 of his 34 passes for 264 yards and no interceptions.
Herbert went into New Orleans, faced the worst pressure a quarterback can face in his fourth career start and delivered. This should have been the first win of his career as well, however, Michael Badgley missed the game-winning kick at the end of regulation and the Bolts lost in overtime.
