Justin Herbert Made Interesting NFL History vs. Broncos On Monday Night

Justin Herbert, Los Angeles Chargers

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.

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.
