Tyson Bagent’s inaugural performance as an NFL quarterback was nothing short of impressive, leading the Bears to a victory over the Raiders in his very first career start. This marked a significant milestone for the former Division II standout, showcasing his potential at the professional level.
Now, Bagent faces a more daunting challenge: squaring off against one of the league’s premier quarterbacks, Justin Herbert of the Chargers. Going head-to-head with a talent like Herbert is no small feat, given his exceptional ability to deliver pinpoint passes to his receivers, despite recent minor struggles.
Adapting to this level of play is a learning process for Bagent, but he’s gearing up for another opportunity, this time under the intense spotlight of “Sunday Night Football.”
