Stefon Diggs has a big game when the offense needs it most
The Buffalo Bills entered this game without one of their starting wide receivers as Gabe Davis was inactive due to an ankle injury. The Bills were going to need a big game from Stefon Diggs and he responded in a big way with 12 receptions, 148 yards, and three receiving touchdowns.
Stefon Diggs has been everything that the Buffalo Bills hoped he would be when they traded for him prior to the 2020 season. He has given Josh Allen that clear number one wide receiver, a player that he can rely on consistently.
Last year, Diggs’ numbers declined but it seemed to almost be by design as Allen developed as a quarterback. He didn’t necessarily have to force those throws to Diggs and he would spread the ball around. Allen did that early in this game by throwing receptions to seven different wide receivers early in the game.
However, as the game went along he would look more towards Diggs and this is when the game became the blowout it did. When needed, Diggs can have these incredible games where he puts the passing game on his back.
