Yahoo Sports: So was the bar for Herbert to win the job on Sunday perfection and beating Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs in his NFL debut? He wasn’t perfect, of course. But he was outstanding and came oh-so close to leading his team to a stunning upset.
And he might have had a better chance had Lynn decided not to punt in overtime on fourth-and-1, giving the ball back to Mahomes needing only a field goal to win.
Tyrod Tyalor's status for next week is unclear. What's Anthony Lynn going to do if Justin Herbert shines again?
