Stefon Diggs was not happy going into halftime trailing by 14 points on Sunday night. The Paycor stadium was buzzing to see its favorite Cincinnati Bengals dominate the Buffalo Bills every step of the way.
The visitors went into the game with a 5-3 record with wins over the Raiders, Commanders, Dolphins, Giants, and Buccaneers. But that kind of winning form was missing throughout the first half; they only saw the ball for 8 minutes. Their only meaningful contribution to the scoreline was a 2-yard walk-in from quarterback Josh Allen.
Diggs was merely a spectator as the Bengals ran past the Bills’ defense like it wasn’t even there at times. The All-Pro receiver only had three catches for six yards going into the break. And he let that know to everyone in the locker room, yelling,
I’m not even sweating. I’m not even fuc*ing sweating.
By that, he was implying to give him the ball more. He hasn’t broken a sweat just watching the game unfold from afar. The third quarter was, more or less, the same. But Diggs showed up in the fourth, scoring a crucial 17-yard touchdown. He finished the game with a respectable six receptions and 86 yards, as per ESPN.com, which is more than he got (70) against Tampa.
Stefon Diggs smashed into a rotund security guard
Football is a high-paced sport, and receivers are some of the fastest athletes around. When they are on song, it gets hard to hit the brakes. That was the case for Diggs last night.
When the 29-year-old scored his only touchdown of the game with just under 4 minutes remaining, he wasn’t expecting to scream at stadium security. As Allen threw the ball for the 2-point conversion, his best bet was to look for Diggs.
He dropped back and launched a dart in the endzone, which the three-time Pro Bowler plucked out of the air while in full motion. Unable to slow down in time, he clobbered into a security guard wearing a blue jacket on crowd control. Diggs tried to get back up because time was ticking. However, the guard was lying on his legs, and he couldn’t move until center Mitch Morse dropped by to save the day.
This was the last time either the Bills or the Bengals made the scoreboard move. It finished 24-18 in favor of Cincinnati, which took their season tally to 5-3 and the Bills 5-4. They will next face the Houston Texans, while the Bills welcome the Denver Broncos at Orchard Park.
