Stefon Diggs

While Isaiah McKenzie led the team in receiving yards, Stefon Diggs had the biggest catches of the game at a time when the offense and Josh Allen desperately needed it. Prior to the two final drives for the Bills’ offense, Diggs had only three receptions for 12 yards and it seemed like he and Allen were not on the same page, which has been a rarity.

However, with the game on the line, Josh Allen went to the wide receiver he trusts the most and the two would connect on five passes for a total of 65 yards. That included a five-yard touchdown that gave the Bills the lead and then a 36-yard pass that set them up to even consider a field goal attempt at the end of the game.

Similar to the game against the Cleveland Browns, it would be easy for Diggs to get frustrated but he was able to stay engaged in the game and make the big plays when the team, and his quarterback, needed it.
