Allen Robinson rounded out the receiving aspect with a nice debut. Robinson caught 4 passes for 61 yards.
On the defensive side of things, Khalil Mack was the whole story. Mack finished with 3 tackles, a fumble recovery, and a pick-6. Even though it was a loss, Khalil Mack is the story moving forward.
