Have yourself a day, Justin Herbert.

The former Oregon Ducks signal-caller has impressed week-in and week-out in the National Football League, and Sunday was no exception. 

Herbert threw for 216 yards and three touchdowns in the first two and a half quarters against the Denver Broncos in the Mile High City to take a 21-3 lead early in the third quarter.

Oh, and he completed 13 consecutive passes; a streak which included his three touchdown passes and 153 yards passing.

First, he threw a nine-yard dart to Keenan Allen to give Los Angeles the lead, 7-3. 

Then, he found fellow rookie Gabe Nabers for a two-yard touchdown while rolling to his right.

Last but not least, Herbert had the dime of the day to Mike Williams who only needed one hand to catch Herbert's 13th consecutive completion and third touchdown of the first half.

With the touchdown pass, Herbert becomes the second rookie quarterback to throw for three touchdowns in four consecutive games, joining Deshaun Watson. 

As is becoming tradition every Sunday, NFL pundits once again had to express how impressive the third quarterback taken in the 2020 NFL Draft has performed.  

 The Chargers have a stud for a decade or more.
