Stefon Diggs speaks out after Josh Allen confrontation on the sidelines against the Bengals
The Buffalo Bills failed to deliver when it counted in the Divisional Championship and tensions soared.
As you may have seen, Buffalo Bills’ quarterback Josh Allen got a mouthful of frustration from his wide receiver Stefon Diggs after some disappointing plays that saw their team eliminated 27-10 in the Divisional game against the third-seeded Cincinnati Bengals. Diggs finished the game having caught four passes for 35 yards on a game-high 10 targets, but the crucial final period saw only two, and he seemed to direct the rage square at his QB.
Allen and Diggs react
Afters the game Allen spoke to the media and was asked about Diggs’ outburst.
“He’s a fiery competitor. He wants the ball. Whatever it was that we couldn’t get him the ball tonight we’re going to have to learn from.”
A few hours after the quarterback had spoken, Diggs sent out a series of posts on Twitter defending his behaviour.
“Want me to be okay with losing? Nah,” he wrote. “Want me to be okay with our level of play when it’s not up to the standard? Nah.
“It’s easy to criticise my reaction more than the result.”
Allen and Diggs tied to Bills
Both players are tied to the franchise until at least 2027 unless they are either cut or traded. Allen will be 27 by the time the 2023 season begins, heading into the first year of his six-year, $258 million contract extension. 29-year-old Diggs will not begin his four-year, $96m extension until the following season in 2024.
