For the second month in a row, Justin Herbert is your NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month.

The former Duck and current Chargers quarterback added three more entries to the NFL record books, specifically for the month of November.

Herbert threw for 11 touchdowns, 1,473 yards — including three games with 300-plus yards, all November rookie records.

He became the first rookie QB to throw for 10 or more touchdowns since Peyton Manning (10) in 1998. Also, Herbert’s 294.6 passing yards per game ranks second all-time for rookies who attempted at least 50 passes in November.

If that wasn’t enough, the Oregon kid completed three passes of 50 yards or more, and he tossed six touchdowns on third down — both led all AFC quarterbacks in the month.

During November, Herbert became the second player in NFL history to throw for 3,000-plus yards in their first 10 career games. He’s also the second player to throw a touchdown pass in each of his first 10 contests.

The last quarterback to win multiple Offensive Rookie of the Month awards was Robert Griffin III in 2012. The last QB to win back-to-back Offensive Rookie of the Month honors was Sam Bradford in 2010.

Both Griffin and Bradford went on to win Offensive Rookie of the Year from the Associated Press in their respective seasons.
