Three years into his career Justin Herbert has broken many records and has shown to be a ‘generational’ type of talent. As awesome as that is, none of those records mean a thing unless you can win in December, January, and February if you are lucky. Herbert has won over the hearts of LA fans since he got to LA and Saturday night we get a chance to see the beginning of the Justin Herbert Plyoff era for Charger Nation!

The loss of Mike Williams will hurt big time but it won’t phase him. He battled thru most of the season without Allen or Williams so he’s already developed a ton of chemistry with Deandre Carter, Josh Palmer, and Gerald Everett. The last time these teams played Josh Palmer led the Chargers in receiving yards with 99 on 6 catches, he was targeted 9 times. The Chargers aren’t as worried about this one without Williams, however, to make a deep run they need him back ASAP.

The Chargers and Jaguars faced off in week 3 but Herbert was dealing with partially broken rib cartilage. The Bolts got smoked 38-10 in that game but that won’t be the same team the Jaguars face on Prime Time Saturday night. Unfortunately, the Jaguars are different as well being one of the hottest teams in the league. This is a matchup we might see for the next 10 years in the NFL. Both QBs are under 25 years old and look hungry to showcase what’s in store for the next decade.
