Allen Robinson turns in catch-of-the-year candidate to give Bears the lead
Allen Robinson just made one of the plays of the week in the NFL.
The former Penn State receiver went full extension to grab this pass from Nick Foles and to give his team the lead:

That’s an awesome grab — not only to get his hands up in time to give himself a chance, but also the ability to maintain control as he slammed into the turf.
Robinson has been most of the Bears’ offense so far this season, accounting for 544 yards and two touchdowns coming into this game. Despite quarterback inconsistency, the Bears would move to 6-2 with a win over the Saints on Sunday.
Meanwhile, former Purdue quarterback Drew Brees is 10-of-12 for 93 yards in the first half but has struggled to push the ball down field. Running backs Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray are responsible for eight Brees’ 10 completions.
Robinson was a second-round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2014 NFL Draft. If he keeps up his current pace, he’ll have the second 1,000-yard campaign in a row and the third of his career.
As a senior for the Nittany Lions, Robinson totaled 97 catches for 1,432 yards and six touchdowns.
