Royce Freeman - Running Back, Carolina Panthers
Freeman made his debut in the Carolina offense, but did not register any statistics in the Panthers’ 26-7 win over New Orleans.
Justin Herbert - Quarterback, Los Angeles Chargers
A bittersweet day for JH in the Chargers’ heart-breaking 20-17 loss to Dallas. Herbert went 31 for 41 for 338 yards and a touchdown— but threw two costly picks, including one in the end zone. He also ran the ball four times for 12 yards. Herbert and the Chargers found themselves the victims of a pair of dubious penalties, one of which wiped what would have been the go-ahead touchdown off the board in the third quarter. Despite the loss, our man found himself in some rather rarified company:
Justin Herbert has tied Patrick Mahomes and Dan Marino for the most games with at least 300 passing yards by a player in his first two seasons in NFL history. #BoltUp pic.twitter.com/okwNrcu9Ls— Sunday Night Football on NBC (@SNFonNBC) September 19, 2021

He also ran the ball seven times for 44 yards, a stout 6.3 yards per carry.
