Bears WR Allen Robinson closes 1,250-yard season with quiet game vs. Packers

Robinson didn’t have a catch until there were three minutes left in the third quarter, but he’s one of three players in Bears history to top 1,100 receiving yards in back-to-back seasons.

For much of the game, it looked like Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson might get shut out. He got his first catch with three minutes left in the third quarter and finished with two receptions for 37 yards on five targets.

The two catches marked a season low and tied for the third-lowest of his Bears career. It tied his sixth-lowest yardage total.

He led the Bears, by far, in targets at 151 for the season, but got fewer in the Green Bay game than Mooney (11), running back David Montgomery (nine) and tight end Cole Kmet (eight).

Robinson finished with 1,250 yards, his second-highest total, on a career-best 102 catches to go with six touchdowns. He is one of three Bears ever to top 1,100 yards in back-to-back seasons, joining Alshon Jeffrey and Brandon Marshall.

Robinson signed a three-year, $42 million deal with the Bears in 2018 and is headed toward unrestricted free agency this spring unless he signs a contract extension or the Bears use the franchise tag on him.
