Stefon Diggs berates Bills QB Josh Allen during playoff loss to Bengals

Irate Stefon Diggs berates Bills QB Josh Allen during playoff loss to Bengals before ‘darting out of the locker room with all his stuff IMMEDIATELY after the final whistle’

An irate Stefon Diggs was seen confronting Bills quarterback Josh Allen on the sidelines during Sunday’s Divisional Round playoff loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in Orchard Park, New York before reportedly storming out of the locker room immediately following the 27-10 defeat.

The Athletic’s Joe Buscaglia reported that Diggs ‘darted out of the locker room with all his stuff’ before Bills coaches addressed the team after the loss. Practice squad running back Duke Johnson reportedly stopped Diggs from leaving the stadium, albeit momentarily.

Diggs left shortly thereafter, but only after Sean McDermott addressed the team, the Bills’ head coach told reporters.

Allen’s favorite target over the last three seasons, Diggs caught only four passes for 35 yards on Sunday. Allen, meanwhile, was limited to just 265 passing yards on 25-of-42 passing, with an interception to boot.

‘He’s a competitive guy,’ McDermott told reporters afterwards. ‘What makes him good is what you saw.

‘It hurts. I wouldn’t want a guy that doesn’t hurt. We put it all on the line out there and tonight it wasn’t good enough.’

‘We were expecting their best punch and they came out and punched us,’ said Allen, who finished 25 of 42 for 265 yards, and scored on a 1-yard plunge. ‘We just didn’t have it today.’

The surging Bengals limited one of the NFL’s top offenses to season-low 10 points in Orchard Park on Sunday.

Cincinnati’s secondary celebrated their effort by making snow angels in the end zone after Cam Taylor-Britt intercepted Allen’s attempt at the goal line with 62 seconds remaining, effectively sealing the victory.

Diggs’ clear frustration with Allen and the Bills’ offense may not be his final word in Buffalo. The 29-year-old signed a four-year $96 million deal with the Bills back in April, tying him to the club until 2027, when he will be 34.

After Sunday’s loss, McDermott told his players to ‘keep their heads up,’ he told reporters.  

‘Even though this hurts, I’m proud of them in the way that they handled themselves with class this year in the ups and downs and the adversity they faced.

‘They’ll take that with them, but for right now, this stings. I wish it were a different result.’
