It’s been a fruitful year for an Oregon Ducks website that writes about former quarterbacks making NFL history…

On Sunday night, Justin Herbert once again found himself dabbling in the record books, putting the stamp on what was another historic season that unfortunately ended in an overtime loss that left his team short of reaching the postseason.

The Los Angeles Chargers lost to the Las Vegas Raiders in overtime, 35-32, in a game that would have sent both teams to the playoffs had it ended in a tie.

The loss was unfortunate, but Herbert was spectacular in the performance, throwing for 383 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 1 interception.

One of the most impressive stats of the night for Herbert came in the clutch, where on 4th down, he went 6-for-6 for 106 yards and a TD on the night. He also happened to tie Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino for the most passing touchdowns of any player through his first two seasons in the NFL.

While the season may not have turned out with the result that he had hoped for, Herbert had another historic year that put him among the very best players in the NFL at this point. While the former Oregon legend would likely trade any of those accolades for a chance to compete in the playoffs, it’s clear that he has one of the most promising futures in the NFL, and there is surely success down the road for him. That much is clear after two seasons.
