The Vikings actually did pretty well against Allen Robinson in their first matchup this season. Minnesota’s cornerbacks were able to hold the dynamic Robinson to just 43 yards on six receptions.

Granted, Robinson had Nick Foles throwing him the ball during the first meeting with the Vikings. But even with the size and experience advantage he held over Minnesota’s young corners, he still wasn’t able to put together a big game.

While Mitchell Trubisky may not be a huge upgrade under center for the Bears in terms of overall talent or accuracy, one thing he does enjoy, and actually excels at, is throwing the ball to Robinson.

Robinson is and will always be Trubisky’s go-to target and in the last three games, he’s thrown his way 33 times. Robinson has hauled in 23 of those targets for 272 yards and three touchdowns.

These two are clearly in tune with each other and Robinson will surely garner the majority of Trubisky’s throws on Sunday against the Vikings.

Minnesota needs to be aware of this stat and keep two defenders on Robinson when possible. They should also chip him off the line and try to disrupt the timing of his routes.

If Robinson can run freely down the field and get one-on-one with Cameron Dantzler or Jeff Gladney, things could get ugly quick and the Bears could find themselves in a much better playoff position than the Vikings when this game is over.
