Justin Herbert’s Late-Game Performance Key to Chargers’ Season Turnaround


Summary: Quarterback Justin Herbert needs to improve his performance in late-game situations if the Los Angeles Chargers want to turn their season around and make it to the playoffs for the second consecutive year.

Despite showing his ability to perform in clutch moments in his first three seasons, Herbert struggled in the recent game against the Dallas Cowboys, throwing an interception that sealed the Chargers’ loss. Coach Brandon Staley emphasized the need for more consistency in order to finish games. Herbert’s late-game performance this season has been lackluster, with a low rating and just 9 completions out of 15 attempts. Pass protection has been identified as one factor contributing to Herbert’s struggles. The Chargers’ running game and the team’s defense in the red zone also need improvement. The Chargers have a short week to prepare for their upcoming game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
