Tony Romo Quote About Justin Herbert Will Get Chargers Fans Hyped
Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert continues to turn heads as a rookie. Herbert is coming off an impressive Week 11 performance in the Chargers' win over the New York Jets, throwing for 366 yards and 3 TDs.
The sixth overall pick in this year's draft has caught the attention of QB great Tony Romo, who said recently that he knew Herbert was special after seeing him play only a couple of NFL drives.
Romo has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity as announcer, showing his knack for calling plays before they happen. Perhaps his psychic abilities extend to the realm of talent evaluation as well.
I knew right away with Herbert [that he was special]. That might be the best pick in that draft.- Tony Romo
Herbert has thrown for 2,699 yards this season, which is good for 10th in the league. His 22 touchdown passes have him tied for 7th along with Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill and make him the only rookie QB in the top 10.
Herbert and the Chargers will face the Buffalo Bills in Week 12. The current odds have the Bills as 4.5-point favorites against the rookie QB, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
