Three takeaways from the Bears’ loss to the Raiders at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London:

Robinson dominates

Allen Robinson led all players with seven catches, 97 yards and two receiving touchdowns.

He’s had at least six catches and 60 yards in four of the Bears’ five games.

“You’re seeing right now what he can do,” Nagy said. “The whole league is seeing it.”

Leno flags

At the end of the Bears’ game, left tackle Charles Leno was the most penalized player in the league, with eight flags. He was called for holding twice and a false start once.

“I’m gonna go to this bye week and do some real deep searching and see how I can get better,” he said.

Leno said some of the holding calls were “some bull-[expletive], in my opinion,” but admitted he was hurting the offense.

Miller mistakes

Receiver Anthony Miller had four catches for 52 yards, a dropped pass and a 15-yard taunting penalty after the Bears’ final touchdown. With the Bears forced to kick off from their own 20, Trevor Davis returned to the kick 52 yards. The Raiders failed to score, though, after Davis fumbled at the goal line after a reception.
