Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert had quite a game on Monday, as the Charges faced off against the New Orleans Saints. Despite the Chargers losing 30-27 on the evening, Herbert still drew some praise from the Saints, which included a bold prediction about his future from defensive end Cam Jordan.

Jordan acknowledged Herbert’s noteworthy performance on Monday, and expressed how he believes the future is bright for the 22-year-old:

“Young kid was out there taking a lot of hits today,” Jordan said, via Luke Johnson of NOLA.com (h/t Josh Alper of NBC Sports). “Our front seven got after him pretty well. He made a lot of great plays down the stretch. . . . He may be a force to be reckoned with for years to come.”

Jordan’s praise was echoed by teammate Demario Davis, who himself said that Herbert “definitely doesn’t play like a rookie”.

Herbert completed 20-of-34 passes for 264 yards, which resulted in four touchdowns. The first-round pick was easily the best player throughout the game, as he helped Los Angeles to a 20-3 lead early on. Clearly, Herbert deserves all the praise from his opponents.

The Chargers, unfortunately, were unable to hold on, as the Saints stormed back to take the victory in overtime. Los Angeles ultimately wasted yet another impressive performance from their young QB, with the Chargers now suffering three consecutive defeats after winning their opening matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 1.

Justin Herbert and Co. will hope to get back to winning ways when they return to the field in Week 5 against the New York Jets.
