MNF: Chargers vs Saints, Herbert Looking for the First Win of His NFL Career 

When Saints’ quarterback Drew Brees left his final game for the Chargers following a shoulder injury which threatened his career, Justin Herbert was just six years old. Fast-forward a decade and a half later, the young rookie quarterback out of Oregon is set to face off with the future Hall of Famer on Monday Night Football.

Through three games as the Chargers starting quarterback, Herbert is still seeking that first career NFL win. Although each of his starts have ended in a losing effort, the 22-year-old from Eugene, OR has been very impressive.

Through just three NFL starts, he has already been breaking records and turning heads.

Following the Chargers 31-38 loss to Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 4, Bucs head coach Bruce Arians had a lot of praise for the rookie gunslinger.

Heading into the Chargers’ Monday night showdown with the Saints, Herbert holds a 102.2 passer rating and a 72.0% completion percentage with six total touchdowns. The quarterback opposing him, veteran Drew Brees has historically been excellent in his appearances on Monday Night Football throughout his career.
