What can the rookie sensation do for an encore? Herbert's first start of 2021 wasn't spectacular, but it was solid. Against a tough Washington defense, Herbert completed 31 or 47 passes for 337 yards, with one touchdown and one interception, and led the Chargers to a quality road win in the sort of game they usually lost in the past. This week, Herbert gets a home date against a Dallas defense that just lost ace pass rusher Demarcus Lawrence to a foot injury. The Dallas secondary has major holes, and without a decent pass rush, Herbert has a chance to pick the Cowboys apart.
