With 1:32 left in the first half of Monday night’s game between the Los Angeles Chargers and Las Vegas Raiders, quarterback Justin Herbert completed a four-yard pass to tight end Jared Cook.

It was the 500th completion of Herbert’s career, making him the only player in the Super Bowl era to complete 500 passes before making his 20th NFL start.

Herbert – who was making his 19th start – was the AFC Offensive Rookie of the Year last season after making 15 starts and throwing for 4,336 yards and 31 touchdowns for LA.

He got off to a bit of a slow start this year, even throwing more interceptions than touchdowns through the first two games. However, he turned things around in a hurry – throwing seven touchdowns and no interceptions against Kansas City and Las Vegas these past two weeks, earning a pair of crucial victories in the highly competitive AFC West.

The former Oregon star is cementing himself as one of the best young stars in the NFL, and at his torrid pace he should continue to shatter early career records this season.
