For the first time since his rookie season, Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert didn't throw a touchdown pass during his team's 19-16 win over the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football.
Yet the third-year star still managed to make history.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Herbert attempted the most passes of any quarterback ever to not throw a touchdown and still come out victorious. He threw 57 passes in the overtime contest.
"Chargers’ QB Justin Herbert’s 57 passes during Monday night’s matchup vs. Denver were the most in a winning effort without a passing touchdown in NFL history." -- Adam Schefter
Herbert completed 37 of those 57 passes for 238 yards and an interception. While it may not have been his best game, the Chargers overcame an early 10-0 deficit to pull out the win.
Herbert should have a good chance to get back to his touchdown-throwing ways when the Chargers face the Seattle Seahawks and their 30th-ranked defense on Sunday.
