My Favorite Stefon Diggs Highlights

March 16th, 2020 was a good day for Buffalo Bills fans. Exactly one year ago today, the Bills made a franchise altering trade. Buffalo acquired wide receiver Stefon Diggs from the Minnesota Vikings and it turned out to be one of the best trades made in franchise history. With today being the one year anniversary of the deal, I thought I would go back to last season and pick my favorite moments from Diggs.

Week 2 vs. Miami

Spoiler alert, most of these will be spectacular catches. In his second game with his new team, Diggs showed off his athletic ability. Quarterback Josh Allen was looking for a target when he found Diggs near two Dolphins defenders and somehow, Diggs ended up with the catch. At first, I thought it got intercepted. There have been times where Allen threw the ball in double coverage and it costed him. This time around was a different story and it still amazes me that Diggs caught the ball.

Two weeks later, Diggs would make another amazing catch. Just like the Dolphins, Diggs made another catch while he was jumping for the ball but this time, it was a one on one battle. Credit to Allen for making this throw, but this is the reason why the Bills got Diggs. They needed a playmaker to make these kind of plays.

The result of the game was heartbreaking for Bills fans but this catch for a touchdown was thrilling. Buffalo was trailing late in the fourth quarter and were on the verge to scoring either a field goal or a touchdown. Josh Allen has been known to scoring on the last drive of games and he did that in this game. Allen was looking to get a touchdown and he did just that as he found Diggs and the new wide receiver made a great diving catch, giving Buffalo the lead. The game had a tough ending for Buffalo but this catch was something else.

There’s no other way to put this but Diggs went off on the Patriots during the second last week of the season. He had three touchdowns and over 100 yards but there was something that stuck out to me in this game. Patriots cornerback JC Jackson, who is a very good defensive back, was in charge of covering Diggs. Earlier in the game, Jackson was doing a great job of covering Diggs and after an incompletion, Jackson started chirping Diggs. The Bills wide receiver pretty much told Jackson, “just wait” as you can see below.

After that moment, Diggs went off and torched New England. This was the touchdown a few minutes after Jackson and Diggs had their conversation as you can see, it didn’t go well for Jackson after that.

AFC championship game vs. Kansas City

The last moment came in the last game Buffalo would play in. After being eliminated by the Kansas City Chiefs, every Bills player went into the locker room as the post game festivities took place, or so we thought. There was only one Bill on the field and it was Diggs. He was watching the celebration taking place and I have to be honest, it hit me in the feels. Social media heard about Diggs and you can see some of the tweets below.

A couple of weeks after the game, Diggs posted this on his Instagram.

Final thoughts

After that Kansas City game, my respect for Diggs went through the roof. He was such a different maker for the team and for him to watch the ceremony made me love him even more. As a fan, I could never watch a ceremony after my team was defeated so for Diggs to do that made me respect him even more. His first season in Buffalo was a success and I can’t wait to see what next season brings.
