By the Numbers: Justin Herbert Ties Rookie Passing TDs Record


Notable numbers from the Chargers' Week 15 win over the Las Vegas Raiders.


With his 26-yard touchdown to wide receiver Tyron Johnson in the second quarter, Justin Herbert tied Baker Mayfield for the most passing touchdowns by a rookie in NFL history with 27.


Thanks to his 53-yard pass to wide receiver Jalen Guyton in overtime, Herbert currently has the most completions of 50+ yards of any QB this season. His eight 50+ yard completions are two more than Russell Wilson and Ryan Tannehill who each have six.


Herbert set the all-time rookie record notching his seventh game with 300-plus yards passing previously breaking Andrew Luck's record in 2012. Herbert finished Thursday's game going 22-of-32 for 314 yards, two passing touchdowns and a rushing score.
