VIDEO: Remembering When Allen Robinson Shockingly Held Onto for This Catch After a Punishing Hit from Erik Harris
Allen Robinson has been a perpetually underrated receiver saddled with bad quarterbacks throughout his career, first with the Jacksonville Jaguars and now again with the Chicago Bears. However, one play in 2019 showed off how good he really can be.
During the game between the Chicago Bears and Oakland Raiders in London on October 6th, Robinson was at his best. His best play came in the fourth quarter, when he made an incredible sideline catch and hung unto the ball despite a brutal hit from Erik Harris. The under-pressure throw from Chase Daniel was also quite good, but Robinson made an incredible play to confirm the catch.
Harris had a clean shot to the shoulder, but Robinson still managed to make the catch, tap his toe in bounds, and hang onto the ball afterward. The play was correctly ruled a completion and the Bears escaped a jam on 3rd & 8.
Robinson had a great day in London, catching two touchdown passes and recording 97 yards on 7 receptions. Unfortunately, the Bears ended this drive in a punt and immediately gave up a touchdown. Chase Daniel was intercepted on the subsequent drive and the Bears lost 24-21.
Robinson ended the year with 98 catches, 1,147 yards and 7 touchdowns. When he's on, he's a top-tier NFL receiver, but questions about his consistency still remain as he heads into his sixth year in the league. Robinson will also be stuck with Nick Foles or Mitchell Trubisky throwing to him, so there won't be much help in the quarterback department.
