With the Minnesota Vikings trailing the Chicago Bears late in primetime on Sunday night, quarterback Kirk Cousins connected with Aldrick Robinson on a short slant route to do a little more than score a late-game touchdown.
The touchdown marked a new single-season high for the 2007 Waxahachie graduate and former Southern Methodist University wide receiver.
Robinson lined up to the single-receiver side of the three-wide set and beat the Chicago defender off of the line for an easy 13-yard touchdown grab.
He finished the game with two catches for 24 yards and now has eight receptions for 139 yards and four touchdowns on the season for the Vikings.
The four touchdowns are the most for Robinson in a single season, besting his three-touchdown performance during his rookie year (2012) with the Washington Redskins.
The touchdown reception Sunday night capped an 11-play, 74-yard drive that pulled the Vikings within two scores, 22-12, with just over five minutes to play in the game. Minnesota quarterback Kirk Cousins then converted on the two-point conversion, which came after the Bears were flagged for roughing the passer on the first attempt, with a pass to Adam Thielen.
The Vikings ultimately fell to the Bears, 25-20.
Robinson has seen his snap count dwindle since the return of wide receiver Stefon Diggs, as he lined up for just eight snaps Sunday against the Bears. He accounted for 17 and 26 snaps the prior two games.
Robinson previously hauled in two touchdown passes in week four against the Los Angeles Rams and then added a 34-yard grab Oct. 22 against the New York Jets.
He now has 78 receptions for 1,330 yards and 13 touchdowns over his eight-year NFL career.
