Buffalo Bills star wide receiver Stefon Diggs heard all the criticism for his lateral and postgame actions following a 27-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, sharing his article on social media.
As it was clear the Bills were going to lose to the Bengals after failing to convert on fourth down late in the game, Diggs was seen yelling in the direction of quarterback Josh Allen while watching the previous series on a tablet. Diggs was throwing up his hands in frustration, though no one could tell exactly what was being said.
Then, after the game ended, it was reported that Diggs tried to run out of the locker room as quickly as possible before practice team running back Duke Johnson stopped him before he left the building, according to The Athletic.

Head coach Sean McDermott said Diggs was present for his postgame speech but apparently didn’t stay long after that.
Diggs has been someone who has put his heart on his sleeve, win or lose. Sometimes when it’s the latter, the frustrations boil over and Diggs speaks his mind.

«He’s a competitive guy and that’s what makes him good, is what you saw. He’s very competitive, as we all are. We work extremely hard in these jobs to be the best we can be, and it hurts. I wouldn’t do it.» I want a guy that doesn’t hurt,» McDermott said during his postgame press conference.
He did it a bit on Twitter on Monday, launching three tweets in a row.
«Do you want me to agree to losing? Nah», the first to read.
«Do you want me to agree with our level of play when it’s not up to it? Nah.»
«It’s easy to criticize my reaction more than the result.»
Per Diggs’ point, the Bills, even playing in snowy conditions at Orchard Park, don’t often put just 10 points on the scoreboard. They averaged the second most points in the NFL during the regular season with 28.4 and scored 34 against the Miami Dolphins in the wild card round.

For Diggs, he’s certainly not used to catching just four of his 10 targets for 35 yards like he did on Sunday night, which adds to his frustration over the loss.
The Bills also lost in heartbreaking fashion, though it was one of the greatest NFL games in modern history with the Kansas City Chiefs in last season’s AFC divisional round.
The back-and-forth offensive extravaganza resulted in the Chiefs winning in overtime, crushing the Bills’ dream of finally capturing that franchise-first Super Bowl victory.

Diggs was emotional in the moment and doesn’t regret it one bit. That is the type of player he will continue to be.
