The rookie from Oregon had one other mountainous day passing Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, albeit in a third consecutive loss.
“Any time we lose the game it’s now not upright enough,” coach Anthony Lynn said after the Chargers let a 17-level lead prance away en path to a 38-31 loss.
Herbert achieved 20 of 25 passes for 290 yards and three touchdowns, two of them to receivers scoring on the predominant catches of their NFL careers. He was once sacked twice and threw his simplest interception on the Chargers’ final pressure of the day.
Through three starts standing in for injured starter Tyrod Taylor, the 22-twelve months-feeble quarterback has thrown for 931 yards and 5 TDs.
