By the Numbers: Justin Herbert's Monday Night Football Magic


Notable numbers from the Chargers' Week 5 game against the New Orleans Saints.


That was the amount of touchdown passes Justin Herbert threw in Week 5. They allotted for the most TD passes thrown by a rookie QB in Monday Night Football history. Herbert finished the game 20-of-34 for 264 yards and a 122.7 passer rating.


Remember the first touchdown pass of the night from Herbert to Keenan Allen? Frankly, with it being such a ridiculous throw and catch, how could you not? According to NextGen stats, the 17-yard score had a 27.7-percent chance of being completed. That was good for the second-most improbable touchdown of Week 5 thus far.

That's the place Joey Bosa has sole possession of on the Chargers' all-time sack leaders list. Bosa has 44.0 sacks since 2016 and the one he had on Drew Brees in Week 5 placed him above Shawne Merriman on the team's list. Defensive end Raylee Johnson has possession of sixth with 46.0 sacks.


Keenan Allen also moved up in team annals as he is the Bolts' No. 5 all-time receiver. His 6,761 receiving yards notched the spot for him. Next up on the list at No. 4 is former wideout Gary Garrison with 7,533.
