If Patrick Mahomes vs Justin Herbert don’t get you hype for Thursday night football then I don’t know what else will do it for you.
Mahomes and Herbert battled it out with both QBs throwing multiple touchdowns and making ridiculous throws in big time moments.
The Chargers raced out to a 17-7 lead before Mahomes and the KC offense would wake up. Scoring 20 unanswered points to take the lead over the Chargers.
The key factor in this game was the constant pressure Herbert was under in the fourth quarter.
Herbert would finish the game but with a apparent rib injury.
The lone mistake by the Herbert ultimately was the difference in this game. KC picked off Herbert when the Chargers were inside the red zone that went back for a touchdown.
Although this game went KCs way, this game was just a preview of what is to come later in the year as the playoff picture becomes clear.
Justin Herbert would finish with 334 yards passing, 3 touchdowns, and 1 interception. Mahomes would throw for 234 yards, 2 touchdowns, and no interceptions.
