Former Duck Justin Herbert Voted Rookie of the Week After Impressive Week 2
Unexpected debut. Historic performance. Rookie of the Week.
Former Oregon Duck Justin Herbert earned the fans vote for the NFL’s Pepsi Zero Sugar Rookie of the Week for his efforts against Kansas City last week.
The LA Chargers rookie threw for 311 yards on 22/33 passing with a rushing and passing touchdown. Herbert became the first quarterback since 1954 with a rushing and a passing TD in the first half of their NFL debut.
He also became the first player since Cam Newton, and the third player ever, to throw for at least 300 yards and score a rushing and a passing TD in his first career game.
Herbert bagged 33 percent of the vote, which just beat out Jacksonville running back James Robinson’s 31 percent.
