Justin Herbert earns first career NFL win after another 300 yard performance

Oregon fans have known for years Justin Herbert is for real.

Now, following lots of unfounded draft scrutiny, the nation sees what Ducks fans have seen all along.

The former Ducks starting quarterback has been performing better than expected as the Chargers starting quarterback, becoming one of the frontrunners for Offensive Rookie of the Year in the process. However, his play wasn’t resulting in wins due to a poor Los Angeles second-half defense, missed field goals, and failed trick plays.  

But, Sunday Herbert’s fortune finally turned around as Herbert won his first career NFL game as the starter by defeating the Jacksonville Jaguars 39-29.

Herbert threw for 347 yards passing, three touchdowns, and even ran for a touchdown to go with 66 rushing yards. It was his third start of the season where he threw for 300 yards.

Throughout the game, Herbert showed his impressive physical tools and arm strength that convinced the Chargers to select him with the sixth overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. 

His most impressive throw being a 70-yard bomb to Jaylen Guyton to tie the game at 29.

Then, he got the job done in the redzone with his legs diving for a five-yard score to taker a seven-point lead.

Many national pundits, NFL players and former Oregon teammates were impressed by Herbert not just Sunday, but how he was performed all season.

All the success could not come to a better person, and anyone involved with Oregon can attest to that.
