Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert is looking forward to facing the Green Bay Packers on Sunday at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin for the first time in his NFL career. Lambeau Field is one of the best places to play in the NFL.
Justin Herbert spoke to Chargers (the) Athletic senior writer Daniel Popper on Wednesday and spoke about playing at Lambeau Field this weekend. Herbert said about it:
“There’s just something about Lambeau and the history behind it. Hoping for a nice weather day.”
On Sunday, the temperature around kickoff will be 44 degrees, and sunny skies, so Herbert is most likely going to get his wish of having a beautiful day on the road. He is used to beautiful days out on the West Coast and the Chargers stadium never gets rain inside of it.
Herbert was also asked if he wanted to see some snow to experience the full Lambeau Field experience and he said about it:
“You can do that on Madden.”
That is a very funny answer because there are a lot of quarterbacks in the NFL who don’t want to play in cold weather and snowy football games. They want to play in warm weather and have time to throw the football.
Justin Herbert Gets To Play At a Tough Place in a Must-Win Situation
The Chargers have a 4-5 record on the season and they are in a must-win situation on Sunday to keep pace in the AFC Wild Card Standings. The Green Bay Packers are 3-6 and are looking to pull off the upset. Green Bay has the 11th-ranked defense in the NFL this season giving up 320.6 yards per game.
The passing defense has been better than the rushing defense this season for Green Bay. Even with that, they are going to have to stop Justin Herbert’s Ariel attack to have a chance. He has completed 67.1% of his passes for 2,349 yards, 17 touchdowns, and five interceptions. Herbert has also rushed for 113 yards on 36 carries and three touchdowns. He is averaging 3.1 yards per carry on the year.
Justin Herbert would love to enjoy his first Lambeau Field Experience with a win over the Green Bay Packers. He is one of the top quarterbacks in the league and Jordan Love needs to be ready to go toe-to-toe with him, but that feels like a tall ask.
