The Buffalo Bills improved to 6-1 Sunday night, defeating the Green Bay Packers 27-17 in Orchard Park, New York. As the Packers took the field in pregame, Bills WR Stefon Diggs and Packers CB Jaire Alexander were already chirping at each other.
The two standouts, who faced off against each other when Diggs played for the Vikings, got into a jawing match as the Packers were coming out for pregame warmups. A helmetless Diggs was a blue mark in a sea of Packers white, green and gold, skipping out of the end zone tunnel with the visitors to confront the Alexander.
Throughout the game, Alexander consistently got into it with Diggs and the rest of the Bills receiving corps. Early in the game, Diggs was getting the best of the matchup. He scored on a 26-yard touchdown pass from Josh Allen early in the second quarter, giving the Bills a 14-0 lead.
After he game, Stefon Diggs was asked about the beef with Alexander. He didn’t mince words, “I don’t give a f*ck who started it, but I finished it,” said Diggs. The Bills Pro Bowl receiver finished the game with six catches for 108 yards and the touchdown.
Diggs has had his fair share of beef with some of the best corners in the game. In Week 1 this season, he got into it with Rams All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey. He proceeded to torch his foe, racking up eight catches for 122 yards and a touchdown in a 31-10 Buffalo win. After his 53-yard score, Diggs taunted Ramsey, which earned him a $10,609 fine from the NFL.
