Patrick Mahomes praises Justin Herbert as ‘a special talent’, ahead of Week 11 Chiefs-Chargers SNF game

Two of the most talented young quarterbacks in the NFL are Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs and Justin Herbert of the Los Angeles Chargers, who will face each other in Week 11 on Sunday Night Football.

Both teams are with winning records (Chiefs 7-2 and Chargers 5-4), so it’s expected to be a high-scoring game with both QBs excelling with their aerial game.

‘Justin can do things I can’t’: Mahomes

According to FOX Kansas City commentator Rob Collins, Mahomes praised the talent of his upcoming opponent saying he is a special talent. “Justin Herbert is a special talent, he throws passes that I don’t think anyone else can throw in this league, including me.”

To date, Herbert has completed 65.8% of his passes, for 2,450 yards, 14 TDs and 6 INTs, not bad numbers that the Chargers QB hopes to improve in his duel against one of the favorites to reach the Super Bowl from the American Conference.

A game that promises a high-scoring duel

Herbert has had to suffer several injuries to his Chargers teammates, so he has had to carry the team by himself in recent games. For his part, Mahomes has the Chiefs with a 7-2 record and in first place in the AFC West.

Kansas City has the best passing offense in the league, while the Chargers are fifth, so the duel at SoFi Stadium will be one of the most anticipated of the season.
