For the second straight year, Allen Robinson is a a 1,000-yard receiver.

On Sunday against the Texans, the Bears’ receiver surpassed four figures on the season with a 35-yard pass from quarterback Mitch Trubisky on the Bears’ first drive of the third quarter. That brought Robinson to nine catches for 123 yards in the game.

Robinson is the fifth Bears player to post back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, joining Curtis Conway, Marty Booker, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery.

He’s on pace to surpass last year’s 1,147 yards, his best number as a member of the Bears — and could even push for a career-best total this year. In 2015, Robinson finished with 1,400 receiving yards.

Robinson’s feat this season is all that more impressive considering the broken offense in which he’s functioned. Trubisky has started six games, and Nick Foles seven more, as coach Matt Nagy has struggled to find an offensive rhythm. Against a brutal Texans defense, the Bears offense has looked as good as they have at any point this season.

Robinson’s contract expires at the end of the season, though the team could give him a pricey franchise tag in the offseason to make him stay at least another year.
