Justin Herbert threw for 347 yards and three touchdowns as well as running for a score and the Los Angeles Chargers snapped a four-game losing streak with a 39-29 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. 

Herbert, the sixth overall pick in April’s draft, completed 27 of 43 passes. He also rushed for 66 yards, a single-game high for a Chargers QB.  

More importantly for Herbert though, it is his first win as an NFL starting quarterback despite Los Angeles blowing another large lead.
