Despite not starting the Chargers’ Week 1 game against the Bengals, Justin Herbert stills heads into the bye week with better passing numbers than quite a few tried and true veterans who are usually some of the best when it comes to putting up yards through the air. As of right now, through four games, Herbert has completed 97-of-141 passes (69%) for 1,195 yards and nine touchdowns to three interceptions with an additional rushing touchdown.

In Anthony Lynn’s first season, LA started 0-4 with two losses via missed field goal. A third loss was just as close. Lynn’s 1-4 start this year has been at least painful, but some encouragement has to be inspired by the play of Justin Herbert to give the Chargers chances to win all four of those games. The opponents ahead after the Week 6 bye do not appear to be as formidable as the Chiefs, Panthers, Bucs and...
