Herbert’s record-setting touchdown pass came at the 8:28 mark of the second quarter and gave the Chargers a 10-0 lead over the Denver Broncos. Overall, Herbert completed 21 of 33 passes for 253 yards and the Chargers won 19-16 thanks to a Michael Badgley 37-yard field goal with 45 seconds to play.
Herbert, the No. 6 overall pick in the 2020 draft, tied the record last week against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Herbert, 22, was planning to back up Tyrod Taylor as the season began, and Taylor led the Chargers to their first victory in a 16-13 win over Cincinnati. But Taylor was injured in that game and a team doctor injected him with a pain-killer just before kickoff of Game 2 vs. Kansas City
