Chargers win third straight as Herbert sets rookie TD mark
Herbert has led the Chargers on winning drives in three straight games while continuing to rewrite the rookie quarterback record book. Herbert set the mark for most rookie touchdown passes in a season in the Chargers' 19-16 victory over the Denver Broncos on Sunday. Herbert's 9-yard screen pass to Ekeler in the second quarter was his 28th touchdown throw of the season, surpassing the 27 that Baker Mayfield had for Cleveland in 2018. “You are so busy doing the extra things that you really don't have time to realize some of the special things we have done on offense this season,” Herbert said. Badgley also connected from 43 yards late in the second quarter to extend LA’s lead to 13-0 at halftime.
