Allen finished with 11 catches for 175 yards and a pair of touchdowns, all while dealing with a shoulder injury during a good chunk of the second half.
“He’s an incredible player,” Justin Herbert said. “The teammate, the player, he does everything. He means everything to this offense. To see him battle and fight and go back out there, he leads by example. He’s an incredible teammate.”
Allen is 31 years old but playing like he’s 10 years younger. The play on the field has been phenomenal and the stats reflect it.
Allen is up to 73 catches, 895 yards and six scores with eight games remaining. His personal bests are 106 receptions, 1,393 yards and eight touchdowns.
As the team’s primary weapon, especially with no Mike Williams and Joshua Palmer and how consistently open he gets with his silky-smooth route running, Allen will continue to be heavily targeted. There’s no doubt that he should be able to surpass those numbers.
