The The Buffalo Bills high-powered offense struggled in their 27-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Divisional round.
Star WR Stefon Diggs couldn’t contain his frustration. A video of the wide receiver’s fourth-quarter outburst toward QB Josh Allen quickly went viral, as did reports of him packing up his belongings and bolting from the locker room after the game.
Diggs took to Twitter following the backlash of his actions. “It’s easy to criticize my reaction more than the result,” Diggs tweeted. “Want me to be okay with our level of play when it’s not up to the standard ? Nah… Want me to be okay with losing ? Nah.”
Diggs returned to Twitter after watching the Kansas City Chiefs defeat the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 in the AFC Championship game and liked a tweet that took a shot at Josh Allen.
Buffalo Fanatics co-founder Rico Belony tweeted on Sunday, January 28, “When Ur QB don’t give a f*** if his WR1 is doubled!!! Put it up there and Let YOUR guy make a play!!! Stefon Diggs reading this tweet lol.”
One Bills fan replied, “He liked it too 👀 but facts!” to which Belony responded, “As he should!! He can’t say it… But I will 😉 I got u @stefondiggs.”
The tweet comes after Bengals QB Joe Burrow’s bold throw to WR Ja’Marr Chase on fourth down at the start of the fourth quarter. Chase was in double coverage, and he was able to jump above both defenders and come down with the ball for a big time first down deep in the red zone.
During the Bills loss to the Bengals, Diggs caught 4-of-10 targets for a total of 35 yards. Diggs is a good receiver, but this is a very bad look. He should stay off social media. This is not good for the Bills Locker room.
