Buffalo Bills: Stefon Diggs, Andre Roberts lead AFC in Pro Bowl votes at positions
The Buffalo Bills had two players leading the AFC in Pro Bowl voting at their respective positions.
While there won’t be a Pro Bowl game, the NFL is moving forward with voting to recognize players who have had great seasons. The voting opened last week for fans and in the first week, the Buffalo Bills have two players currently leading the AFC at their respective positions.
The first is wide receiver Stefon Diggs who currently has 109,537 votes after one week. In his first season with the Bills, Diggs is having a historic year and is on pace to break a number of franchise records. He has 73 receptions, 101 targets, 906 receiving yards, and four touchdowns. He also ranks second in the NFL in receptions, targets, and receiving yards.
If Diggs makes the Pro Bowl this year, it would be his first career Pro Bowl selection after five seasons in the NFC with the Minnesota Vikings. On Wednesday, Stefon Diggs talked with the media about how he is enjoying the individual achievements but he has his sights set on something bigger.
The other player who is in a good position to make the Pro Bowl is a kick returner, Andre Roberts. If Roberts was to make the Pro Bowl, this would be his third straight selection as he made it last year with the Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets in 2018.
Roberts currently ranks second in the NFL in yards per kick return among players with at least 20 kickoff returns at 29.0 yards per return. He also ranks fourth among players with at least 15 punt returns in the NFL in punt return yards average at 11.9 yards.
The Buffalo Bills also as a team received the fifth most votes behind only the Pittsburgh Steelers, Kansas City Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks, and Green Bay Packers.
The voting is open until December 17th and any fans that want to cast a vote can click here.
