Social media reacts to Justin Herbert's gutsy comeback attempt vs. Chiefs – Ducks Wire

The game certainly didn’t end how Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers were hoping, but the Oregon legend showed his moxie once again in the prime-time contest.
In a 27-24 loss, Herbert threw for 334 yards and three touchdowns on 33-for-48 passing. Unfortunately, Herbert had an interception that was arguably the play of the game. He was picked off on the 1-yard line, and KC returned it 99 yards for a touchdown.
Despite that, Herbert still had a chance to lead Los Angeles on a comeback. Trailing by 10 points in the fourth quarter and with a rib injury that was obviously bothering him, Herbert led a drive downfield that lifted the Chargers back into the game, down 3 with about a minute remaining.
The onside kick went to the Chiefs, and that was that.
Like I said earlier, it wasn’t the result that Herbert was looking for. Still, Herbert did things and made throws on Thursday night that wowed the social media world. Here are some of the best reactions from the night:

No Keenan. No Linsley or Pipkins in the second half. Justin Herbert probably breaks his ribs. Five should-have-been picks. Still only lost by three.
Moral victories don't mean anything in this league, but I don't feel any worse about this team now than I did before.

Justin Herbert just left the locker room and walked into the X-Ray room. He had his left arm tight against his side. He got drilled in the ribs and missed a play but did return to the game. More to come.

Just gained a ton of respect for Herbert there. That’s a leader.
