The Chargers were unable to overcome a slew of penalties in Sunday’s loss to the Cowboys. But it was quarterback Justin Herbert who kept the team in the game throughout.

Herbert threw for 338 passing yards, which tied Patrick Mahomes and Dan Marino for the most games (10) in NFL history with 300 yards in his first two seasons.

Even though Herbert threw two interceptions, he still made high-end plays under a lot more pressure than he was last week against Washington.

Had two penalties not taken away two touchdowns, Herbert’s three would have been enough to guide Los Angeles to victory over Dallas.

Herbert had a 37-yard touchdown pass to Donald Parham taken away when Jared Cook was called for holding. Herbert was then picked in the end zone three plays later.

In the fourth quarter, Herbert had a 2-yard touchdown pass to Cook taken away because of an illegal shift motion penalty. The Chargers then had to settle for a field goal on that series.

It wasn’t Herbert’s best game, but the 22-year old still flashed glimpses of dominance, which resulted in him writing his name in the history books.
