Los Angeles Chargers star QB Justin Herbert just made NFL history as the young playmaker continues to pave his own way in LA.  The second-year QB out of Oregon is doubling down on his impressive career in the league so far as the reigning Offensive ROTY has now etched his name in the record books as one of the most exciting signal-callers in the NFL right now.

With another impressive outing against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 11, the 23-year old has now joined an elite club of QBs that have recorded 7,000 passing yards in their first 25 career starts. Herbert is just the fourth player in NFL history to achieve such a feat, putting his name alongside other iconic QBs like former MVP Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs and Hall of Famers Kurt Warner and Dan Marino (via The Athletic).

After an impressive rookie campaign, last year’s sixth overall pick is showing the world this season that his record-breaking debut season is no fluke. The Chargers’ young star has been incredible all-season long so far and has been one of the biggest reasons why LA is clinging on to a winning record at this point of the season.

And, his historic night in Week 11 at the So-Fi stadium was the perfect example. Aside from breaking this impressive QB record in the opening half of the game, Herbert kept coming at the Steelers’ defense and won it all for his team with a game-winning touchdown pass to WR Mike Williams with a minute left to play. Herbert capped off his historic night with a total of three TDs for 382 yards, putting the Chargers at 6-4 record after 11 weeks.
